The Other I

A decade of blogging

Filed under: Just Stuff — theotheri @ 3:38 pm

Image result for bloggingI’ve just realized that I began blogging here in March, 2007, more than ten years ago.  During that time, I’ve taken several breaks, one to write the second edition of my recent book “The Big Bang to Now,” and several others for family reasons, which has been the case for the last several months.  As before, I’m finding it difficult to get started again.  Every time I think “oh, I’ll blog about that today,” the idea suddenly seems utterly trivial or boring.

I’ve seen other personal blogs which I have enjoyed stutter or even come to a full and an apparently permanent stop, and I miss them.

And I miss the thought and interaction and even support that comes with blogging myself.

And so, barring the unexpected, unforeseen, and unplanned, I’m going to return to making an effort to post at least twice a week.  I’m not going to worry about being boring or irrelevant.  I have enough cyber-experience to know it’s a lot easier to escape from a boring blog than from a live conversation.

So, Dear Reader, I very much appreciate that you are there.  More than I can say.  But l will fully understand if you click yourself away.


  1. Congrats on 10 years! And here’s to ten more!

  3. Happy Anniversary, Terry! Happy for us readers certainly.

    About not having something world-shaking to say each time… It be like that. The best baseball players make out two thirds of the time. They, and you should, go on because what makes them good at what they, and you, do is still there even on a less than stellar day. You have much to say that makes a difference in the lives of those who read you, sometimes with great impact.

    I own and have read both editions of your book, and I recommend it to anyone who reads these words. I think frequently about what a remarkable mind you must have to encompass such a big topic.

    I look forward to your next posting!

    • Wow, Tom! if your comment doesn’t get me blogging again, I wonder what could. Mega thank you’s.

      I would be interested to exchange a few thoughts with you sometime about the difference between the two editions of The Big Bang to Now.
