Why I Stopped Blogging, And Why I Restarted Blogging

Stuff got in the way. Work got in the way. Tech got in the way. But even so, I was often thinking about what I’d write if I sat down at my desktop machine. I’d get too frustrated trying to blog from the iPhone or iPad (which is now a Mini), and the WordPress app was kind of in the way, too.

The funny thing is, when I want to know when something happened, or a major life event, I check my blog. And I go back and grab recipes, links, stuff. It’s my memory repository, I suppose, so it seems best to just pick up and start blogging again rather than incessantly reading other peoples’ posts and blogs and news items.

I’ve been relying on +Daniel Treadwell’s Google+Blog paid plugin to at least grab links from my Feedly newsfeed, but that’s been replaced by a new plugin called Social Media 2 WordPress. I’m still checking to see if I’ve got it set up right, I had to link back to my profile again and create a new API public key. It looks like it’s right, but nothing happens if I try to kick off an import.

Social Media 2 WordPress website – free to try, paid version 19.99 (and worth it once I figure out the bells and whistles).
