Friedrich Nietzsche said it best.
“I am one thing, my writings are another matter.”
I started the BobSongs Blog, because I wanted to write, and talk about my music… and the music of others.
However, life… (messy as it is) …got in the way.
Things sometimes tick me off, and affect me, and I feel compelled to write and explore my feelings.
So, (for instance) when news that convicted pedophile Graham James had received a pardon from the National Parole Board, and the Federal Government (tough on crime ??? Not !!!) …knew nothing about it… I was ticked.
When I was plucked from amongst other volunteers, to Run with the Olympic Torch, I wrote about it.
And, for over a hundred Blog posts… whatever the fallout, I wrote about it.
I’ve had some hate piled on me… one person, to the point that I had to block him.
But overall, the response has been positive, or it has (in some cases) inspired a debate… and that is good.
At its best, discussion brings together different viewpoints, and when done properly, is an inclusive process, showing us that we are more alike than different.
At worse, it allows me to vent, to bring to light something that I am proud of, or think deserves a bit more prominence.
There have been a LOT of very varied topics… but my original intention was to have my Songs and Songwriting featured, but my BobSongs Blog has evolved into a lot of other things.
Thus, I’ve been looking for another Blog domain, that encaptures the “everything else”-ness of my writings.
Driving down the highway, in Washington on Friday, my sweetie and I were talking about it, and that’s when we came up with…
So, from now on, the BobSongs Blog will be Music, and music-related Posts only.
Bob.. Blah… Blah… will be the home of “What’s In Store”, Caught on the Web, Musings and other NON-Music posts.
Thanks for checking both out, and I hope to see you back here… AND there… soon !!!
