New Look For My Blog

Welcome to the latest reincarnation of my blog!

I’ve had this blog for about a decade now and it has gone through many phases.  It has been worked on diligently, completely abandoned, only to be resurrected once again then neglected.  If this blog were a human, it would have a lot of emotional issues.

So where have I been?  Well I haven’t been far actually.  The reason I no longer write in this blog is that I’ve gotten older (seems logical) and technology has advanced.

Now, everyone is using computers and even computers are using computers.  With all the data collection going on recently I just did not think it prudent to have an open, personal blog on the internet anymore.

I used to enjoy sharing my thoughts and discoveries with the world but unfortunately the internet has become a much more ruthless place.  What was once a wild west or complete chaos and fun has now become a bit more sinister in terms of personally identifiable information gathering in order to sell things or just to use the information for harmful purposes.

Therefore, I’ve decided to strip this blog of all personal information and to stop using it as a journal.  If you know me well then you know I keep another blog where I still write posts as I used to a few years ago.

For those that are stopping by for the first time, I’ve turned this blog into a photo journal.  As technology advances we are staring to record more and more of our lives.  The latest innovation being Instagram where we are encouraged to share lots and lots of pictures in a format that makes things very easy.

As I am and have always been a computer nerd (databases especially) I have taken very fondly to this idea of recording my own life.  This blog is no longer a journal of my thoughts but rather a journal of my daily life through pictures.

I share these pictures just because I enjoy technology and keeping a virtual presence.  However, these pictures are mostly for me as a modern day scrap book so that I can look back on my own life and remember where I have been.

**Side Note** Some say your life flashes before your eyes when you die.  Perhaps I can just take a lot of pictures, put it in a WordPress blog and have my life flash before my eyes whenever I would like?  How about that for a deep thought?  LOL

Enjoy and if I do not yet have you on the Facebook and you know me personally please do make contact.  There is nothing more fun for me than reconnecting with my friends made in my former life in Spain, France, Mexico, Japan and Vietnam.
