When I started Ben Yancer, Inc. in 2005 it was mostly on a whim. I’d graduated from college that spring and had heard murmors about this “blogging” thing that people were doing. I thought it might be a good way to keep myself writing and to keep in touch and up-to-date with the many dear friends who had moved away.
And it was.
And it was good, very good, for a long time.
Then a few years passed, and posting came ever so slowly less often. By the fall of 2011 it had stopped all together. With no explanation.
It wasn’t for lack of things to say.
Fast forward and it’s 2015. The heyday of blogging has come and gone. Most of my friend’s sites have been long abandoned or deleted. And yet, still, I feel myself drawn to begin writing here again.
So I logged into this never-used, old WordPress account a couple months ago—the one I started back in 2008 when I was blogging every week and the idea of a non-Blogger blog on my own domain was all shiny and new—and I finally finished the move.
I know this place won’t be what it once was. That time has gone.
My hope is for something new—a voice for today, for all of me.
Because the only way to truly be my whole self—to write and share my music, unafraid—is to be completely honest.
A lot has changed in my life since I last posted here in 2011, and slowly in the coming weeks and months, I’d like to fill in the details.
Stick around, won’t you?
