I’ve been trying to switch from my “new” blog (my currently active one) back to my “old” one, which hasn’t had any new activity on it for over two years. The first step was to eliminate all the old posts on my old blog so I could start fresh. I then needed to write two posts, a “good-bye” one and a “hello, again” one. Once those two were posted, I could stop using the “new” blog and start posting to the “old” one again. I also needed to figure out both the process and appropriate timing to change the two feeds I have for my blog.
After several months of “working” on it, all I had accomplished was to delete most of the old posts on my old blog and stop posting to my current blog. For some reason I couldn’t decide on an appropriate post to make a new start on my old blog. Nor had I figured out the correct order of all the steps I needed to take to make the transition work smoothly. My dithering has resulted in no posts on either blog for almost two months.
Apparently, a two-month lull is sufficient motivation to finally get me to move forward again. Therefore, this will be my last post on this blog, unless this switch proves less than satisfactory. In which case, I’ll be back. But I’m feeling optimistic and invite you to join me in my move “back to the future.” My first post on my newly revived blog introduces my “Boomer Bits” idea, which I confess to having already mentioned on my Facebook page. But it seems appropriate—a slightly used idea for a slightly used blog.
