Hello everyone, and a very happy new year to you all. For this first post of 2018, I wanted to briefly explain why I have created a new website/blog and accompanying Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Don’t worry, I promise there will be no declarations of self improvement. No resolutions to drink less alcohol, or more water. No commitment to lose those extra pounds. And definitely no desire to take more exercise. Phew!
Really, the reason is very simple. I felt like having a fresh start, a clean slate. My old social media accounts have contained many posts that could easily have ended with the word, “discuss”. Some of my Facebook posts could even have been taken as controversial, although that was never the intention. I’m not the kind of guy to have any extreme views. However, I did often write on the subjects of Politics, Religion and Philosophy.
Well, there will be none of that here.
There are so many things in life that bring me joy. My family and friends, books, films, music, food, games, other people’s dogs (because I don’t have my own). I am a huge fan the specific area of Science Fiction that encompasses the time travel and dystopian future genres. So expect some mentions of that. One day I may even write a novel set within this very subject.
So there you have it, no major changes, other than I will be writing here at davidson27.com instead of on Facebook as I used to. Plus the subject matter will be more creative and less opinionated. Those of you who know me, know how much I enjoy writing, so it made sense for me to have a space in which to keep control of my own content. My Facebook and Twitter accounts will share links to blog posts and updates (among other things), so please follow those. Also, I have an Instagram account.
I hope you enjoy my work this year, and if you do, please feel free to share.
