In December I celebrated my 14th year of blogging on this site; yay me! lol With that said, something I haven’t mentioned often on articles that I decide to use as a repurposed article is that one of the reason I repurpose them is because I have a date limit for how long people can leave comments on them. When that date is passed, even if I wrote something where I think I left some good ideas for visitors, visitors who might want to comment or ask questions won’t be able to do so; I don’t think that’s fair to either of us.

That means everyone who’s online must already know these things… right?
Maybe not. A few weeks ago I got an email from someone who’s just started blogging, something that still happens on occasion. I’ve done a lot of videos on the subject, which are on my YouTube channel (look over there on the right), but they don’t get a lot of juice over there; that’s why I still blog about blogging… an interesting conundrum, isn’t it?
