Well, I have finally arrived at a decision, or perhaps more accurately, a conclusion. When I first started this blog, I incorporated all my verbal meanderings to include my attempts at poetry in Old-Mainer. However, after a while, it appeared that the audience for one was different then the audience for the other, and I created my second blog Inklings.
I consciously did not go out on the social networks other then to post on my Twitter account, mostly because it was just there. I have never used it and to this day, it is sans Tweet. I knew going in that it would probably stunt their growth so to speak, and that is OK. I would rather let them grow naturally then to market them.
That was a year and a half ago, and in that time Inklings has met with moderate success. Ironically, the followers of Inklings have grown in greater number then Old-Mainer. However, I notice many that join are sites that are selling something, offering opportunities to improve my life, or just appear to be pumping up their numbers. I never see them again. For the most part, the people that actually read Inklings also read Old-Mainer. But those that read Old-Mainer don’t necessarily read Inklings. I suspect that some don’t even know I have a second blog, or maybe my poetry is just that bad.
Whatever the reason, I have decided to consolidate all my posts on Old-Mainer. I am taking a lesson from Gigi at “Rethinking Life”. She has multiple interests and just throws them all out there like a rummage sale. You get to pick and choose what you like. I think that will work for me.
So, dear reader, starting today, along with the commentary, opinions, advice, insight, humor, and just plain nonsense you have come to expect on Old-Mainer, I will now be posting my poetry as well and leave it up to you what you wish to read. I hope to see you there.
