Winter Season Premiere

Greetings my friends ! This post serves as my U.S. Winter Season Premiere. There was not the usual break this year between my Autumn season of blog posts and my Winter season. The fact of the matter is that November was (by far) my biggest month ever as far as readership, so I wanted to keep the forward momentum going during Thanksgiving Week here in the U.S. when I would normally be on hiatus.

So my blogging continues this Winter with no expected breaks in action. You can expect new blog posts published on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays at 3 AM U.S. East Coast Time, so that’s 8 AM in Great Britain, 10 AM in South Africa, 1:30 PM in India, 4 PM in Singapore, and 9 PM in New Zealand. Thank You for following my blog from all around the world !

As a general guideline each new weekend of blog posts begins on a Thursday, and my Thursday posts can be about anything and everything. My Friday posts are about pop music history from my own vast archives going back 35 years. My Sunday and Monday posts are Christ-centered with a short message on Sunday, and my favorite positive and encouraging songs of the week on Monday.

This blog was created on Myspace back in May of 2007. 6 months later I moved it here to WordPress. This post begins my 14TH year here on WordPress. You can still read every single blog post that has ever been published by me here on WordPress (1,861 and counting), but don’t look for any from 2013 to 2017. (My blog was published solely on Facebook during that time.)

To my fellow bloggers who also read my blog – keep doing what you do. I enjoy reading many of your blogs, and I’m glad that you’re staying active as a blogger during these times when blogging is so passé / “old school”. I guess we’re about 15 years past its prime, but I’d rather do this than waste countless hours of brain energy reading all about other people’s narrow viewpoints and prejudices on Facebook and Twitter. Hatred and negativity thrives over there.

Well that’s all for this Thursday blog post about anything and everything. It’s my first of 18 posts in December. It’s going to be a fun month on here, as we wrap-up 2020 and prepare for 2021. Let’s do this together.

Social Media Round-Up

FACEBOOK – I’ve been on Facebook since Easter Sunday March 31ST 2013. I was active on it until New Year’s Eve Sunday December 31ST 2017. This blog appeared on there during much of that time. At the start of 2018 I brought my blog back to its previous home – right here on WordPress. I’m still on Facebook, but I no longer post original material. I’m only on there because most of my social media friends are on there. I like / love some of their posts, and I comment occasionally. Most of the time I just read and move on – including all of the political posts. I keep my political viewpoints to myself. I wish others did as well. Facebook was a lot more fun before it became saturated with politics – much of it filled with innuendos, exaggerations, fabrications, rage, and hatred – from both sides.

TWITTER – In a few days I’ll observe my 11TH Anniversary on Twitter. I’ve tweeted over 8,400 times over these past 11 years – much less nowadays than I used to. I mostly utilize my Twitter account to announce new blog posts here on WordPress, and that’s an automatic process. Every so often I’ll tweet lyrics from a current song I like. Sometimes I’ll tweet a random thought. My last 5 tweets can be viewed right here on my blog (right-hand column below the calendar – if you’re on the web site).

FLICKR – My longtime photo storage site (since 2011) is Flickr. I’ve got over 3,200 photos on the site, and 88½% of them are public for the whole world to see. They are mostly vacation photos from over the years – from as far west as the Hawaiian islands, as far south as Fanning Island Kiribati, as far east as Saint-Martin / Sint Maarten, and as far north as Niagara Falls. I’m currently adding photos from my recent Orange Beach Alabama vacation. My last 5 photos can be viewed right here on my blog (right-hand column below my tweets – if you’re on the web site).

WORDPRESS – And here we are – the social media site that I’ve been on for the longest time – since the end of 2007. (I know I abandoned it for over 7 years while I was tweeting and Facebooking.) This is my 1,801ST blog post here on WordPress – and 480TH since I returned at the start of 2018. I have a lot of new readers on here, and I welcome each and every one of you to my blog. I blog 4 times per week – Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays. My blog posts go live at 3 AM U.S. East Coast time on most of those days, so that’s 12 AM on the U.S. West Coast, 8 AM in the United Kingdom, 9 AM in South Africa, 12 PM in India, 5 PM on Australia’s East Coast, and 7 PM in New Zealand. (I’ve got followers in all of those great places around the globe.)

The best place to check-out my blog is at my home page at revchrismday.com. It’s also where you can link to my Twitter and Flickr. If you think that you have a similar blog that I may be interested in then comment on any of my recent blog posts. No spam please. WordPress will automatically capture it, and if it slips through then I’ll delete it. If you already follow my blog then there’s a good chance that I’m probably already checking-out your blog occasionally. Keep up the great writing !
