“For over a thousand generations blogs were fun, personal hangouts on the Old Internet. Before niche markets. Before ROI. Before pageviews. Before the dark times.”
Last night I found the remains of a blog I was in love with about 13 years ago. It was a lot of fun reading those old posts and remembering how personal, casual and how much like a conversation blogging used to be. There was no niche to fill, quota to make or editorial calendar to prostrate yourself to. It was fun.
I miss that fun. I miss the spontaneity of “I gotta blog this.” So, It decided to be a little proactive about it.
Meet Fanny Pack Mafia. My new personal weblog. It’s about whatever comes into my mind at any point in the day or night. Comments are open. There’s no agenda or posting schedule There’s no Twitter account or Facebook page. It’s me talking out loud. Take off your shoes and relax. Sit down. Blogging can be fun.
Why “Fanny Pack Mafia?” It was the dumbest thing I could think of.
