CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS Farewell Message

CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

FAREWELL MESSAGE

NOTE: Carolyn’s Online Magazine was launched today. with two articles:

Please take a moment to visit, and subscribe to, the magazine that evolved out of and follows up on CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s a new day, a new month, a new year. The day has passed for endings, dawning into a ripe time for beginnings.

  • Deep within every beginning is the seed for its ending.
  • Within each ending is a seed for a new beginning.

Thus, after 6 years, 1,325 posts, and 327,453 views from 166 countries my first online magazine, CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS, has come to an end—its seed for ending being the WordPress host site’s size limit. The seed within the ending is a new beginning.

When Carolyn’s compositions started on February 29, 2008 its seed of ending was built in: the WordPress space limit. Never in my thoughts did I imagine my endeavor would come to an end. But now the warning light is on. There is little space left to post articles. The seed for ending is sprouted.

The timing is right. The old—two-oh-fourteen—is at an end. January first, two-oh-fifteen, rings in the new. A ripe time for new beginnings.

As I move on I must ask some hard questions.

  • Are blogs are becoming outdated?
  • Should I consider not birthing a follow-up to CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS?
  • If so, why?

The response from you, my readers, encouraged me to move on. A summary of the comments can be read: A Review of Comments On CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS and Cornell Family Dialogue Via Blog Post Comments.

As the editor, developing and maintaining CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS has been a challenging, ever constant, learning process. It served as an entrance into a communications age that has already moved far beyond blogs. However, I decided to continue CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS with Carolyn’s Online Magazine .

I want to take this opportunity to thank my loyal readers and commenters. , which I invite you to visit Carolyn’s Online Magazine, which remains under construction, and to visit this blog site to explore the rich information it contains.

To Be Resolved in 2015

CAROLYN’S ONLINE MAGAZINE

WHAT WASN’T RESOLVED IN 2014

WILL BE RESOLVED IN 2015

 NOTE: Considering the trials and delays in beginning my new blog site (read Problems Creating a New WordPress Blog ) I decided I’d continue posting on this site until the issues are resolved. This first post goes back to January 1, 2015.

Thank you all for bearing with me.

Dates that come around every year help us measure progress in our lives.

One annual event, New Year’s Day, is a time of reflection and resolution.

Joseph B. Wirthlin

Have you written your New Year’s resolutions yet? After all, it is New Year’s Eve/Day, time for Old man two-oh-fourteen to step aside (willingly or unwillingly) and allow the birth of newbie two-oh-fifteen.

It’s also the time we are expected to welcome Newbie 2015 with a list in hand—a list of resolutions with which we are to write in the first blank page of a 365 page journal, which, through the year, will become a good book.

The December 22, 2014, WordPress prompt asks How did you do on last year’s New Year’s resolutions? Do you anticipate there will be any leftover items to be carried over to next year?

4 New-Years-printable-artI found my 2014 list of eleven 2014 resolutions…from which I’ll pick the top five to evaluate, based on the WordPress questions. One note: (more…)
