THE JOTTINGS PART
Purple prose is writing that is too elaborate or ornate. It detracts from the narrative instead of moving the story forward. [More here]
My way of describing purple prose is that it is fussy, unfocused, and old-fashioned. I don’t write like that.
I’m a straightforward writer. I tend to have a point, get to it, and make it snappy in the process. Photos and images help me make my point. I like pretty.
mercilessly because while I can be chatty I shall not dither, possibly wasting someone’s time. That’d never do.
And when possible, depending on the topic I’m discussing, I prefer to come to a conclusion, whether it be my reasoned opinion and/or a specific question.
Thus I give you, my gentle readers, the following. It’s something I’ve been thinking about of late, for a reason you’ll understand.

THE QUESTION PART
The longer I write this blog the more I wonder how much longer I’ll be writing this blog.
As many of you know I had blogs before this one, starter blogs as I think of them, but when I created this blog in 2011 I told myself that if I hit 1,000 posts I’d call it quits.
Welp, after hitting publish on this post I’m 15 posts away from 1,000. Meaning that if I’m true to my original plan, I’ll soon be faced with a decision about what to do with this blog.
Which brings me to my question to you:
HOW WILL YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO END YOUR BLOG?
