Today is this blog’s 1st birthday—happy birthday it! I made its inaugural post (“Hello, World”) on the 24th of May 2016. In the blogosphere, making it past your first birthday is not an insignificant achievement. So many blogs peter out and disappear into the ether long before they reach this milestone, their creators having lost interest, been distracted, forgotten about them, or just run out of ideas. My blog has kept going because of the steady stream of recordings of short practice pieces. From now on, however, I’m not going to upload so much. I feel the whole process of recording pieces, uploading them, and writing blog entries takes time away from actually practising the guitar. I still intend to post now and again, perhaps more polished performances, maybe more in the dark days of winter when I spend more time inside.
