I started blogging in 2006. I wrote about my life, about politics, about the news, about dating adventures… Eventually, I started reviewing books… and then movies… and then TV shows… Then I started a blog all about my pregnancy. Then one all about being a writer.
Sadly, I was a dumbass and I randomly used photos and images from google that I totally did not have the legal right to use. So all those old blogs… hundreds and hundreds of old blogs, are all gone. (This “oh shit” purge happened in 2022 for anyone curious.)
Yep. gone. At least for now. There is a chance I might go through them and republish them without the images etc because some of them were -if I say so myself- quite funny. But that seems like a lot of work and, honestly, an exercise in narcissism… so maybe not. Time will tell.
Starting in 2021, I dusted off my “book review” skills and decided to give blogging/reviewing another go. I wrote a LOT of book reviews. By the end of the year, I was burnt out, my eyes went into revolt and quit working, and oh yeah, the “oh shit” moment happened.
So those reviews?… all came down in 2022 as part of the “oh shit I was a dumbass” purge.
However! Things have changed yet again. I am writing again, I am reading again, and I am reviewing again. And thanks to Fair Use, I can still publish my book reviews. So that is what I am going to do.
- Republish all my 2021 book reviews.
- Write the occasional book review
- Do a monthly LGBTQIA book review as part of the ItsAQueerThang radio show I am lucky enough to be a part of.
- Talk about books on my TikTok
- Hope my eyes hold out for another few years.
