The other day my blog-friend, Audrey, posted that she had reached her 10th Anniversary of blogging, which prompted me to check when I started. I knew it was a while ago but imagine my surprise when I dug into my archives for my first post, which turned out to be on the 27th September (3 days before my Birth Day) 2010!
Ten years! Who’d’a’ thunk!
I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a bit of a purge of my old posts that don’t reflect who I’ve evolved into, or have links that don’t work anymore, that sort of thing, and this seemed like an auspicious time to begin.
So, here’s what I’m going to do … from this Sunday-ish (17th May) and thence about every two weeks, until the end of September (2020) I’ll be revisiting one post from every year that falls on or about the 27th September and have a bit of a poetical wax about what I wrote … and just because I can, I’m going to start with 2019 and work backwards.
At the same time, I’ll be doing the purge-y bit starting in 2010 and working forward. I have no idea how much will disappear, or how I’m going to feel about it all, but it’s going to be an interesting journey.
I have digital copies of everything, of course, tucked away on an external hard drive in a drawer … somewhere … over there … and so as long as the files stay uncorrupted, those ‘deleted’ posts will exist. I might even print some out and keep for posterity … maybe.
If revisiting the Widdershins Worlds archives is something you’ve been dying to do for ages but have never found that perfect moment, here it is!
My usual completely erratic posts will continue as usual.
