Does anyone ever read their old posts for fun? I sometimes read mine. If I see that someone has looked at an older post. I wonder what prompted their interest and if they found what they were looking for.
Sometimes though I read my old posts randomly and it is like reading a diary.
Today I read several of the posts I’d written about cricket. I don’t write those much now because I only see cricket on TV but when I went to matches in Hobart I used to take a lot of photos and it’s fun to look back on those events and see who I was able to photograph. I did not like taking posed photos, it was always action shots or those where the player was intent on what was going on in the field or talking to someone else.
I like looking back at old travel posts too. Our cruises, holidays that David and I took to various places, steam train trips and so on.
Sometimes I look at a post and think that it’s time to dust it off and post it again but mostly I just enjoy reminiscing.
Old questionairre posts like Share Your World can be interesting as they are the most diary like in providing a glimpse into what was going on at the time. The months I spent making trips to Hobart to visit David in hospital, the progress of my house decorating and eventual sale. At least I know that when my memory is completely shot I’ll have some record of what I did, where I went and how I felt about it.
I’ve been at this nearly seven years now so there is quite a bit of material stored in these posts. One day perhaps I’ll look at them and think “Was that really me?”
