Part I: Magpie Tales - Concerto Revalations
|picture prompt #48 for Magpie Tales|
Thus one would come to the conclusion that to create or compose a blog, one is in their own way, creating music for the reader much like a musician would create music for the ears of his audience. While composing a poem, or sonnet, if you will, they are expressing a talent as if being one who participates in the presentation of a symphony. Each post, each poem or tale presented, a specific song or concerto, a piece of the overall concert presented by an orchestra.
Due to time constraints and a very demanding schedule, I have not been as attentive as I would like, often absent from blogland as of recently. Though I have found this to be frustrating, this sporadic absence has given me the opportunity to step back, to listen to the music I have created up to this point, and then to re-evaluate if my blog is going in the direction that I originally intended for it.
Overall, I would say the journey up to this point has been a very positive experience, much like listening to the first concerto of a symphony. I have highlighted a variety of aspects, my poetry, my short stories, a few minor glimpses into a couple of short adventures in nearby areas, the progression building on the creative efforts I was hoping to free up, if you will. However, I have also discovered, just as if one was at a concert, ones energies can build as the cresendo in a musical composition, building in a specific direction solely to highlight a specific instument...
Part II - Blog Revalations
I have also found that the stats offered by Blogger can be, like all the positive comments, very addictive causing one to switch their focus to meet those numbers, to highlight those notes within the symphony. I have just recently hit the 5000 mark for page hits, a goal I found myself anticipating, though I was surprised to find myself so interested in this stat. In the past I have been rather hidden about my creative writing in general, much like I am about my personal life with those individuals that I come into contact with on a regular basis in the here and now 'real world' of my life. Somewhere, within the last few hundred page hits, in my mind, I set this 5000 mark as a transition to my approach here on my blog.
I'm not sure exactly what this transition will be, maybe posting more things expressing my everyday world, whilst trying not to 'offend anyone who participates there'... this was the topic, or sort of, in another blogger's post recently... I don't know that there really is anyone in my world who would be offended if I speak of them, but a mental note made, that I should be aware of how I present things if I transition to speaking of the real world versus sharing the stories created in my imagination. I hope that you all will continue to follow along as I explore further paths of this journey, and I hope you will enjoy whatever instuments that I highlight as the music here plays on.
Thank you all for following along and attending my symphony.
Yours Truly... Reflections
