Plans for Somervell County Salon Blog for 2020

22 December 2019 at 3:26:47 PM

Yes. I do this almost every year and put up things I plan to do. Most of them I haven't done. 

But going to mention what I might do for the next year. First, blogs have, for the most part, gone out of favor as mega-sites like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram have taken over. I still want my own little corner of the internet to talk about what I want and I feel the same way as when I coded and began this site years ago. I"m a woman with political opinions and ideas, and also like the idea of keeping up on local government and other events in Somervell County. At one point a couple of years ago I thought I would put up a message board but ran into some technical roadblocks, mostly involving php 7.x. My current blog uses classic ASP which I have never upgraded. Yeah, it's kind of spaghetti code but at this point it's like an old familiar friend that I have been coding with and tweaking for years, and I'm not interested in changing. I may again look into a message board where I put the blog on an interior page. I also thought at one point I might put up a streaming video site. Doing so would be a huge amount of work; I prefer to say that I have other projects that interest me more that take up less of my time, so will probably never do that, although technically it's feasible. 

I have been off Facebook now for at least 2 years. I left it a long time ago but then, due to a project I have on an unrelated subject, went back to keep a Facebook login to maintain a project page. I finally had enough, deleted my account for good,  and went to use a different software option to keep up with family and friends which has worked very well. Hub still uses FB and sometimes shares some of the posts that are on this blog with his FB audience, which is completely up to his discretion and opinions about what he wants to re-post, if anything. For me, I feel really good having deleted Facebook and am not interested in joining back up for any reason. At any rate, saying that when I write blog posts, and I probably write the majority of them here, I don't do it for any other audience than those who may come here. 

The posts are quite often opinion miixed with substantial facts, like video or audio. I believe strongly that if anyone wants to form an opinion about whether something is 1, viewing video or hearing audio, for example,, is an excellent way to form an opinion. I think, based on having the blog for so many years, that realistically, just because I have posted a video excerpt doesn't mean that every single person on that post has viewed it. But they could. It's kind of lazy to call items "fake news" as Trump regularly does; I believe he hopes that people will not actually look for themselves to see if what he says is 1 or not. At any rate, again, although I very often have my own opinion on what I believe about a certain news item, anyone is encouraged to look or hear for themselves, and if you think I got it wrong, send me a message or make a comment and call me out on it, within the comment rules. 

Anyway, I intend to have this blog up for a very long time, and the archives since I first started it in 2005 are all here as well. Here's from a post I wrote in June 2007, gosh, almost 13 years ago, and my sentiments still stand.  I just may not post as much as I have at some times in the past.
