After a very restful month and a half I am back to blogging again. I wanted to give my full attention to appreciating the Spring season this year and I did just that. But blogging is part of my DNA, I can’t not do it.
Let me drop the second shoe now, I am back to blogging but just not here. RJ’sCorner has been going strong for 5+ years. It is time for a change, a very basic change. As I get older I find our times and particularly our politics just too depressing to continue posting in that mode.
Since a big part of this blog has revolved around politics I decided to start fresh instead of continuing here. I know I will lose some readership by this basic change but frankly I think it is necessary to divorce myself from the mud of politics. This will likely be my final post here. Since I am still getting dozens of views here even without posting I will leave it up for a while.
I am hoping that many of you will join me over at ThatWiseGuy This new blog will be more of a journal type theme revolving around my life stories but with some “off the top” things about today and of course mentions of my heroes. This new blog will also by about you sharing your stories with me and my readers. I know generally that only about one in forty or less comment on a typical blog post. I am hoping to break that trend so please join me with your stories to tell. I think we can all have some fun with this new format.
I was inspired to make this move by Thomas Jefferson. Three years after he left the presidency he totally gave up on the politics of his time. He spent the last twenty years or so of his life concentrating on the classics and his many letters to friends and family. I hope to do the same. But I will never consider this new blog a success until you guys get involved.
It has been an interesting five years here and I want to thank each and every one of you who came by for a visit and especially those who hung around for a while.
