I started "My Mundane Mid-Life" four years ago today
I've written about my life - my mundane, "every day", routine, unremarkable, boring life - and I've written it for me as the audience. If you come to this site regularly, irregularly or even not at all but read through RSS, I want to sincerely thank you for stopping by and reading. To have ANYBODY read this blog makes be feel wonderful, especially if you're not a family member or don't even know me!
I've written about people that I have lost forever, I have written about people that have come into my life. I just write about the things I do, the things that interest me, the people that interest me. As I wrote two years ago:
I don't get a lot of traffic here because of that. I'm not a popular guy - I just write about the things I do in my life along with a few pieces about things I like/dislike or just catch my eye. I don't try for anything deep, anything philosophical, political or edgy. It's just me. I don't have a lot of friends out there who read this blog, and certainly not a lot of family members either. I'm OK with that. I guess if I write for an audience of one (me), I won't be all that disappointed in my traffic or my lack of comments or even the frequency of what I write.
So, if I'm just writing for me, hopefully I won't disappoint me by trying to keep writing almost every day. I feel the need to do that - don't know why. Perhaps it's this feeling that may, just maybe, if people stop-by regularly and actually read this thing, then I should keep it going for as long as I can. Maybe I can get one or two more readers that way.
Here's a question for all of you out there - after 4 years, do you know me yet?
So - what in the world am I going to try to do to add to the Mundane experience here? I have one word:
Everybody is listening, and it seems like everybody is creating one, whether they have something to say or not. Most of the podcasts are really excellent.
How about mine?
Well, I don't have high hopes, but I want to give it a try. It'll be an off-shoot of what you see here, except you'll be hearing it instead. Some things may only be in the podcast, some things may only be here in the blog. We'll sort it out as we make the journey.
I realize I've had some big issues posting regularly. I'm not setting a schedule for the podcast. We'll just see how it plays out. I'm just an average guy in his late 40's with an itch to share his mundane, "every day", routine, unremarkable, boring life.
It may mean nothing to you, but it means something to me.
Thank you all for visiting. I truly appreciate you taking your time to do that. Make yourselves known every once in a while be leaving a comment or two and signing the appropriate GuestMap. Please stop-by again and see how this podcast-thing turns out!
