Blogging versus Facebook

Hi. It’s me again. Returning from the dead? Far from it, which you would know if you followed me on Facebook. 😉
When I first started blogging just over seven years ago, I was intensely gratified by the instant access to readers’ hearts and minds. Compared to conventional publishing it was a dream come true. Step up with me now to the EVEN GREATER WORLD of SOCIAL NETWORKING, where instant communication with an audience is taken to the next shining level. At least, that’s how it seems. Facebook and Twitter keep you front-stage on many people’s news-feeds, but there’s something about a blog that brings back the old feelings of leather-bound books, and … What’s a book? A book is a pile of papers stuck together on one edge, bound in a soft or hard cover, presenting worlds of nurturing information in a cozy old-fashioned way … Um, ah, a blog is a bit more like a book, although much more instant, where deeper thoughts and feelings can be laid out than on the social media freeways.

Anyway, I’m back, and glad to be here with you. It’s been a long break — over half-a-year — and you can still find me at edward.saugstad@facebook.com, but I intend to saunter back into this comfortable corner more often now.
This blog is not as cozy as a warm book, but in this fast motion world, I hope it will continue to provide you with a few moments here and there to catch your breath and feel your precious self.

Now, to prove that I’m really not dead, here’s a tiny bit of what I’ve been up to lately:

And I feel greatly honoured to know that over 108,000 times, fellow human beings have been drawn to the pages herein. (You in Italy who came here at 13:57 on June 3, let me know if you read this!)

You know the scene at the end of Back to the Future when the geeky dad is transformed into a cool dude, and the boxes of his new adventure novel are delivered to their home? … I feel a bit like that today!

stay tuned …

(official public release soon to be announced …)

Thousands of years ago, when cavemen still roamed the rest of the world, kingdoms and advanced technology thrived in the mysterious East. The oldest surviving story on Earth tells of a king who was forced to banish his beloved son to the wilderness. This noble heir to the throne is believed by some to have been a benevolent deity incarnated in human form, who came to teach mankind the highest qualities of selfless love. But our science could find no evidence of the fantastic events of that lost culture, when men and beasts spoke with each other and demons stole flying machines from the gods. There was no proof until a little boy from modern times stumbled back through the thick curtain of time, into the most thrilling period of prehistory, to participate in events that would shape the entire human race. At last, we know the truth….

Mumble, mumble – write, write – headscratch – scribble, doodle . . .
Oh! There you are. So nice of you to drop in. I’ve just been jotting down some mental blogger notes. How did writers prime the pumps of their inspiration before the advent of Blogging? The distant, wobbly promise of publishing in a book or magazine and, maybe, having it read by someone couldn’t really have been enough to draw out all those precious waters of literature, could it have? Speaking of water, could you just pass me that glass of it over there? – yeah – thanks . . . Ahhhh, that’s better. YOU are indispensable 😉
