As I continue to work on things away from this blog (which is a collection of Free-Time/Casual Online Writing, Remarks, And Notes By ME Whelan) and continue to figure out what goes and what stays of my existing online-writing, the de-emphasizing of one or another continues as well....

A Post About This Blog

As I continue to try to figure out what to do, if anything, with my "ton" of free-time online-writing, I've reached a point where I want any online-writing time to be divided among three categories, with one of those categories being the very broad one that includes any of the "zillions" of blogs I have in varying stages of development and the remaining two categories including anything I decide to write on HubPages and then this blog, on which I'll continue to post anything that "seems like a good idea at the time". 

I won't go into all the issues associated with any of those other "zillions" of blogs (etc.) that I have.  They're a long-term type of thing, so the short story about anything else I have online (other than on HubPages and this blog) is that one thing or another is either going to be closed, moved, or further developed if/when the time comes.

At least I've reached the point where I kind of know what I have online and where (for the most part).  Even with that, I still haven't cleaned out (or cleaned up) any number of things I have on HubPages under the pen-name that I no longer use.

One problem is/has been that years' worth of online, free-time, writing amount to only a small part of anything else I have stored in my computer.  There's stuff I've completed but not posted anywhere, stuff I've completed but don't plan to post anywhere online, and a bunch of stuff that isn't completed and either is or isn't going to be posted online.  

Then, too, there's a ton of stuff that I've removed from one online place or another (and that may/may not need to be altered before doing anything else with it).

The point is, if/when I now have the time or inclination to want to write anything online I pretty much want to simplify things by just posting whatever I feel like posting on this, one, blog and then seeing what happens with regard to what I decide to post (or delete - or "whatever") among the stuff in those other categories I mentioned.  Addressing the matters of any of that other stuff isn't a big emergency.  There are times when I've gotten in the mood to just delete everything and start all over, but that wouldn't be wise - at least not right now.   Besides, as time has gone on I've been gradually de-emphasizing anything that should be de-emphasized.  The stuff is there.  I figure, it isn't bothering anyone.  Besides, quite a big of thought and effort went into building that "collection" of stuff (of varied levels of quality).  I'm just not someone for not someone who does well by not tying up loose ends.
