Back To The Future

What do you do when there’s nothing left

When your darkest thoughts you’ve mined?

Perhaps a delve back into the past

For any gems you’ve left behind?

With my third year on WordPress approaching

I’m taking a look back inside my head

So apologies if you see what you’ve seen before

But it’ll be words I still need said

    1. Well, I posted one last night (just to see how you did it really) and there’s another two scheduled for today.

      Think I’m going to post one or two old ones, along with one or two new ones, each day maybe?

      I don’t know – will see how it goes… πŸ˜¬πŸ€žπŸ–€

      1. I noticed the archive post after a commented.
        I really need to go chronologically instead of going backwards in the feed.
        Good luck. What are you hoping for as a result? πŸ’š

        1. Cheers Mr Mouse! 😁

          It’ll be my 2nd year anniversary on 1st March, so I kinda played a bit fast and loose with the ‘third year approaching’ line to better fit this verse 😁

          Still, if I take out the ‘quoting’ category (which is essentially just plagiarism πŸ˜‰) it seems I’ve managed to amass over 1,650 posts during that time. I was astounded when I realised that! 😡

          With what I want to achieve by reposting I’m not sure there is one specific aim.

          I do worry sometimes that I’m repeating myself when I write new stuff or I wonder if I’ve written better on that feeling before so, hopefully, by reposting I can try to make sure that’s not happening and folks aren’t getting bored.

          Also, just recently, someone here said that they had very kindly kept a poem of mine on display. When they showed me which one it was I was actually stunned. Stunned as in I couldn’t remember writing it. I realised that a lot of the time I just write and post and never think about it again so, I decided to go back and read through my archives and see what else I’d forgotten I’d written.

          I guess then, arrogantly, I wanted to reserve the right to repost something if I thought it might have been, you know, a bit good maybe πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‰

          So yeah, we’ll see how it goes πŸ‘
          Oh, and please read me in whatever way is easiest for you my friend.
          I’m just chuffed you’ve stuck with me for so long!! πŸ€ͺπŸ–€πŸ–€

          1. Wow! Now that’s a comment.

            I remembered cos we started around the same time. Almost to the day. I don’t know my anniversary but I expect a prompt any day.

            That is a whole lotta posts. I recall your rush to complete 1000. Didn’t seem that long ago.
            I still have a way to go for a 1000.

            When I reposted it was for posts that had 5 views or less. I could probably do it for a few weeks with those conditions πŸ˜‚

            I know exactly what you mean. Not that anyone has put my stuff on display 🀣
            But I write four weeks in advance, so by the time it posts it’s new to me.

            Makes sense. So far the posts are new to me. Must be from before I started following you.
            I have a feeling you will outlast me but I’ll hold in there as long as I can πŸ˜‰πŸ’š

            1. Reckon it’s the longest comment you’ve gotten from me Mr Mouse – you know how I usually like to keep things brief! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

              Yes, I remember that rush to 1,000 too. Think I had it in my head I was going to blog for 365 days, post 1000 times and then just give it up.
              Seems like that didn’t quite happen lol 😬πŸ€ͺ

              On that note – we’re in this together Mr Mouse. And, apart from anything, given your killer words/views/likes and interactions recently – you shouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ–€πŸ–€

              1. Close to the longest I’ve received from anyone πŸ˜‰

                You clearly haven’t slowed down if you’ve passed 1600. It’s an impressive feat. I doubt many blogs reach that number.

                We will carry on together 😊
                I think I have a little left in the tank πŸ˜‰
                Either way I’m sure I’ll be here to see your 2000 πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ’š

    1. Yeah, it’s going to be fun to go back and see how much has (or most likely hasn’t) changed.
      Plus, seeing how much I have (or haven’t) developed as a writer too!

      There will be some I know I won’t post (for a few different reasons) but at this point most of the archive is fair game so, let’s see what happens!! πŸ˜πŸ€žπŸ–€

  1. You were booking. My anniversary was 2/9 and I started in 2013 and I’m at 1643 posts. Some of those were repeats. I have no criterion other than I want to post and I find something appropriate to the moment. I will say it’s fun looking back sometimes and thinking, dang, that’s pretty good. As other have said, sometimes I don’t even remember writing them.
