Does This End J.S. Brooks Presents?


Good evening faithful readers ... and everybody else who just happens by. Welcome. This is the second time I've seriously considered ending this blog. The first time came when its original reason for being, the promotion and sale of the children's book Michael and the New Baby (now out of print), ended. At that point, I decided to continue for my own personal enjoyment and as a platform for ideas important to me. I used the platform to get out ideas and positions, especially on culture and religion, that I felt were getting short shrift. The numbers of views grew surprisingly a while back.That was wonderful.  Now they have dropped, equally surprisingly, and disappointingly to be honest.

So here we are. Do I call it quits on J.S. Brooks Presents? If so, what then? I'm a writer at heart and I love to bat around ideas and share stories on the blogging platform. So, to continue or not? What platform to continue on? Will I continue with Blogger or move on to something like WordPress, Weebly, Wix or Tumblr. Free it has to be for me. That's just the way I am.

At this point, if I'm to start over, I'll be a little more likely to follow some of the blogging rules. The site I create will focus on one topic only, rather than cut across a wide range of my personal interests. But which focus to hone in on? I see a few among the most popular blogging subjects (ideas) that interest me. The ones that attract me most, at first glance, include personal stories, charity and activism, product reviews, sourced news, travel, history, or funny stories. I'll just have to mull it over and make some sort of decision. I've enjoyed this. I've enjoyed writing for you and interacting with you. I'd like to do it better. We'll see.

Thank you for being here. Thanks for keeping me company in this endeavor. Whatever I decide, I'll let you know. If you have constructive suggestions for a new direction, please let me know.
