I’m Baaaaaack

On March 3, 2017, in Announcements, Miscellaneous, Surviving, by rsguthrie

Just a quick blog snippet—hmm, I think a “snippet” would actually be considered a short piece snipped from an existing blog. This is more of a really short blog. No, too short (and lacking too much substance) to actually be considered a blog.

Tell you what: if “snippet” isn’t close enough, have at it, let me know in the comments what might be a more appropriate noun to describe a few paragraphs meant only to let readers know a blogger is “back to blogging”.

I know some of you are wondering why even take up white space informing readers of my intent to get back to blogging more regularly. Well, the truth is, I felt some sort of a brief segue was appropriate since it’s been almost—ahem <shuddering in shame>—two years since my last post.

Trust me when I say it’s been a difficult eighteen months.

That being said, I would have simply announced my return to blogging in the first paragraph of my first blog, but it seemed a bit “cart before the horse” to announce something that technically had already happened after hitting the “Post” button.

Also, as you will read very soon (in my first true blog, forthcoming), there is a reason I did not want to use any of the Title, or even first paragraph, to mumble about my reappearance.

Hey, maybe “mumble” would be a good noun.

Until someone comes up with something better, then, please pardon my (perhaps ill begotten) mumble.

I’m back.

(I swear I heard a man out there actually hack up a phlegm ball and curse at me. Well done, sir.)

    Welcome back, Rob! I think this can be called an announcement. I’m looking forward to your first true blogpost. 😉

      Thank you, Niki! Yes, I actually have a category “Announcements”. As the “announcement” went on, mumble surfaced in my head and seemed funnier. 😉 I’m writing my “real” blog now. Should be up tomorrow. (Famous last words.)

    How can I regularly get your blog? Through FB? LIKE this post?

      Hi, Madonna. Even though we ironed this out on FB, I’ll include the answer here, just in case a reader wants to know the same thing!

      On the lower right of (should be) every page, there are three ways to subscribe:

      1) NetworkedBlogs (Click “Follow this blog”)
      2) Google+ (Click “Follow”)
      3) FeedBurner (Enter email address and click “Subscribe”).

      As I mentioned, it is supposed to show up on my timeline on Facebook (and usually does, with a few typical Facebook blunders), so if we’re Friends there, it should appear that a new one has posted. I think most readers use the first method, NetworkedBlogs. I think mine is delivered via Google+. I should probably test the others, report findings back here!

      Looks like I am subscribed through FeedBurner, which as it happens is a Google product (HUGE surprise!). That’s the easiest: enter your email, hit “Subscribe”, you’ll be asked to enter a Captcha-type set of letters, then go to your inbox and click the “activate” link…if you don’t click the link, the subscription will not be finalized. I can tell you FeedBurner works because every time I post a blog, I receive an email. 🙂
