Greetings, all! I am so very tired, I just looked in the mirror and I have bloodshot eyes. It’s because I’ve been up all night (it’s currently 5:30am here in London!) making significant updates to several of my websites.
These updates were quite unexpected. Yesterday, for a reason that God only knows, the thought occurred to me that I have a pile of CDs in a drawer that have been untouched for many years, and that it might be a good idea to investigate what’s on them. Seeing as laptops don’t tend to have CD drives these days, I had to go on Amazon and order a cheap external CD drive, which was no massive bother or expense.
The CD drive arrived at my local Amazon locker today (er, yesterday), and when I got it home and started inserting my CDs… let me tell you, I was by no means prepared for what I found!
Working through the pile of about 20 discs, there were some from 2007/2008, and some went back as far as 2002/2003. The contents of these discs was absolutely fascinating. I found amongst the contents essays, artwork, videos, poetry and songs that I had completely forgotten even existed. It was a really surreal experience revisiting some of these nuggets from my past!
I spent a few hours sorting through everything, and have now saved and organised everything that I felt was valuable and am now plotting what to do with it all. At first, I thought about setting up a new website to host all this content, but I already have so many websites to look after that I thought twice about doing that. I think what I’m going to do is try to add the content to my existing sites (i.e. my YouTube channel, website, this blog, Facebook, etc) according to where each piece of content fits most adequately.
I’m so excited to share some of this content with you! To begin with, there are two things that I’m hoping you’ll take a look at today. Firstly, I’ve added an Art page to this blog, so please go ahead and take a look at that and let me know what you think in the comments. Secondly, I’ve uploaded a new (old!) song to my Bandcamp page. I absolutely love it and I hope you’ll give it a listen. I had honestly completely forgotten that this song even existed, and without wishing to blow my own trumpet, I think it’s quite a gem!
I’m on about my eighth can of Coke right now, which is the only reason I’ve made it through the night without collapsing onto my laptop. It’s silly of me, really, to feel like I need to share this content right away, but it’s just the excitement of it all, I couldn’t resist. So please, do me a favour and check out these two additions to interweb (I’ll put the links below); my Art page and the song I found. You have to remember that all this content is from many years ago, but it’s a wonderful part of my life’s journey so I’m delighted to revisit it and share it with you.
Do feel free to comment, I may not be able to keep my eyes open for much longer but I will of course catch up with comments tomorrow (er, today) as soon as I’ve recharged the metaphorical batteries a little! Sorry if this post contains any typos, I have checked it through a couple of times but I’m not operating at optimum efficiency. God bless you and thank you for reading!
