I’ve written tens, even hundreds of thousands of words with the intention of publishing them. While I’ve published some, some of the words got no eyeballs besides mine. That blog unpublished blog post. They rest in a graveyard on my computer. Some of them I deleted. Where do deleted words actually go? Weird thought, right? But why does the blog post I didn’t publish exist?
I’ve given some attention to why I write the post “Unmasked” and “Why I Write And Or Blog”. (These are not the only posts that speak into writing or blogging though…) Something I haven’t spoken much about was the environment for my writing and blogging.
Why I write and or blog is one question I’ve answered many times in different ways. However, as I think about it, there are more answers everytime I contemplate this. Almost everytime I have a go at answering this questions different expressions and nuances ensure.

When he asked I realised I had thought (a lot, at different times) about comments on my blog. I have debated on switching comments off completely. Thinking about this has made me wonder and think about why I was thinking about it.

I thought it would be helpful, for me and others, to explore how I’ve blogged for a long time. “Long time” is relative. It’s been several years since I started to do so without quitting. In the process I’ve started some blogs and shut them down as I explored concepts and ideas. I’ve thought I’d share how I’ve managed to blog for a long time…
