But, what’s he thinking about

7 Years of Blogging

history is what you make of it, and the editor’s opinion is final

the first picture I posted ~ my old sports car SARA

Seven years ago, on or about 24 June 2013,  I started to write and publish this jackcollier7.com blog.  Looking back, I wonder what on Earth possessed me to think I could possibly do such a thing!  And the me from back the would have been amazed that the damn thing is still going about 2,557 days later!

Back then I knew nothing at all about blogging, other than I had read some pieces on some other people’s blogs.  I mean literally, I knew nothing about blogging, and there I was starting off to write what was to become a daily effort of blood, sweat, toil, and tears.

Originally this was all supposed to be about personal finance, and the wider world of Banking, Finance, Economics, and the Consumer Society.  It’s changed a bit since then.  These days I’m more likely to publish some erotic photographs with risque text to accompany them, as I am to write a piece about financial matters.  It’s actually up to you to decide whether you like my blog or not ~ but come what may I will write and publish what I want to write, just as long as it’s legal, honest, decent, and within my own ethical guidelines.

Since I started in June 2013, I have published 1,748 blogs.  I’ve written more than that because some of the stuff I wrote I thought was dross before I published it, and some of the stuff I’ve published I’ve trashed after it’s been published.  Even I sometimes have second thoughts.

In total there have been 9,651 comments on this blog, of which 3,328 are mine.  It says that I have 2,554 followers, but that number is hopelessly inaccurate ~ probably less than 100 people regularly read / like / comment on this stuff today.

What I do know is that I still have 3 very loyal followers from those very first days.  Some others who follow my blog have also been doing so for a very long, long time.

I guess I will go on writing because it does keep my mind active.  And, I have met some very interesting people through this blog, a few of whom have become very dear friends indeed.

Whether or not to go on writing just the same sort of stuff???

Or to try something completely utterly  different???

Honestly, I don’t know ~ what do you all think

Random Jottings ~ Casual Sex

everybody’s journey is different, but some are on the road to hell

~

when you’re young it’s good to be bad

when you’re middle-aged it’s reprehensible

~

morality? it’s whatever you think it is, at the time

~

never trust a married lover who swears there is no one but you

not all witches are crones, I’ve met one who wears satin lingerie and stiletto heels

~

maybe she should have stopped counting when she slept with a boy who was the same age as his number

~

if he could go back to the day they met he would turn around and walk away

where were you? he asked

in your head, she said

Peace and Tranquility

the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective

~

Each day I go down to the sea to pray to my Goddess.  Always at the same vantage point, I face the morning sun, calm myself and say my short prayer for the day.

This morning the sea was very grey and calm, with a surface like hammered metal, the colour of slate to match the grey clouds which had suddenly appeared overhead.

I asked that my Goddess help me find greater peace and calm in my life, because a peaceful and calm life brings more and better, kinder things along with it.

At the instant my prayer ended, the clouds parted a little and a shaft of sunlight struck the sea, turning the area I was looking it into a sparkling, burnished silver mirror.  More than quite surprising.

You know what?  I took that as a sigh that my Goddess looked favourably upon my prayer, and the generosity of spirit in which the prayer was meant.

As I turned away that shaft of sunlight vanished too.
