In June of 2019 I wrote this post about the last 5 posts I had put on this blog. I always wanted to revisit that feature and thought I might have done quicker than 18 months but as it’s the beginning of the year ot is always a great time for looking backward.
Last time I started with the least recent of the 5 and moved on to the most recent. I’ll go the opposite way today and start with the post I just published.
Now that the Trump presidency is over I wanted to see if I could find some positive things about his presidency. I was able to find 5. I wanted to make it an even 10, but then I would have had to say things like I like his middle name or go back to his days on the apprentice.
The title doesn’t 100% match the content of the post. As I do sometimes, I titled this post with an idea in mind and but as I progressed in the writing the post evolved into something just a little different.
I originally started a post about finding a musician who performed at a summer camp I was in high school on the music platform Bandcamp. That post never fully developed but it got me to searching other artists at Bandcamp and seeing not only was Alan Levi there but his out of print Rivertown was available.
This is another example of starting in one direction and ending up in quite another.
This is a cross between actual things I’d like to get accomplished this year and a comedy bit similar to what Steve Martin did back in the early 80’s.
This was my last post of 2020 and is a compilation of information and videos of one of my favorite music artists. It is something that might generally appear on my vlog, but I wanted to tell it in more narrative fashioned than just linking a clip from you tube.
The majority of these posts share 1 or 2 commonalities …
I have been trying to put more pictures in my blog posts. 4 of these 5 have pictures. Most of these posts are meant mostly to encourage. This isn’t always my central goal but the end of one year and beginning of another are times that I really like to uplift my audience.
In future posts: I will be writing about music I am enjoying listening to. I will be taking a break from political writing for a few weeks. Not sure what else is on the horizon, but I can assure you it will be random.
