Personal Musings 01: Blogging
Today's opening piece is going to be about blogging. I started blogging about 10 years ago and had a pretty successful blog known as The Fallen Princes. It followed my Eldar force (which happened to be Alaitoc) and my Badab Project, a group blogging event involving over 100 blogs and the space marine forces being built around it (I threw my lot in with the Tyrant!). It became a second job and one that no longer brought pleasure. Then the breaking point happened and the blog died and so did my blogging days.
Jump forward to July 2017 and Beers with Peps opened for business. The goal was to record the different beers I was enjoying and also do the odd hobby post, but even that hasn't gone to plan. At first I had believed the blog was going to be 90% beer to 10% hobby. Now I would say the blog is 40% books, 40% comics, 10% Wargaming and 10% beer. I have to be honest and say I am not disappointed about this in the slightness. I am actually so impressed with how my reading has improved and I can only thank this blog for that. I would love to have a solid core of followers like the old days, I would also love to have people commenting on posts. But I understand the days of the traditional blog are gone and I am most likely chatting away to myself, but I will continue to produce a blog that brings me joy and see where life will take it.
I make no promises that there will always be posts, but when there is one expect them to appear on the following schedule:
Monday: Miniatures - #miniaturemonday #miniswithpeps
Tuesday: comics - #comicswithpeps
Wednesday: Beer - #beerswithpeps
Friday: books/Audio Drama - #bookswithpeps
Sat/Sun: Days off/Random
I look forward to this new blogging lifestyle and I hope you will stick around for the ride. To get the ball rolling I want to offer out a follow for a follow. Please hit follow over on the left or sign up for the email following and then leave a comment blow, I will then seek out your blog and follow back. If I really like what I see I will add it to my Blogroll section.
Thank you for reading and I hope we can reignite this corner of the blogging sphere.
