I’m happy to report that I’m reviving this little blog after a 15-month “visit” elsewhere. In 2017, I decided to try the TinyLetter platform for my personal blogging, but I missed writing a blog with a more defined theme. I also missed the editing options and flexibility provided by WordPress.
The original hook for this blog played on the concept of Generation Jones, the term often used to describe that cohort of people born from 1954 through 1965 who fall between classic Baby Boomers and Generation Xers. In contrast to my professional blog, Minding the Workplace, which often delves into some pretty heavy themes about workplace issues, I wanted Musings of a Gen Joneser to strike a lighter chord. And so, for roughly four years, I used this blog to share personal nostalgia, bits of trivia, and popular culture.
I’m going to retain that emphasis with this revived edition, and I’ll be adding more serious commentary about lifespan issues and adult learning — especially as relevant to members of Generation Jones. I continue to believe that, on balance, our age cohort has experienced and viewed life in ways that are different from our Boomers and Gen Xers friends.
In addition, I may also repost a few writings from my TinyLetter entries, as I think several are worth re-sharing.
I hope you’ll enjoy the return of Musings of a Gen Joneser. Thank you for reading.
David. Looking forward to reading your blog about our generation. The best is yet to come!
Thank you Sharon, delighted to be back here!
I’m so glad you are back blogging. I always enjoyed this blog. There really is a blogging revival going on as part of taking back the Web from the corporate silos and restoring the Web as _the_ social network instead of toxic FB and Twitter. I’ve been blogging pretty heavily for the last 9 months and it has been very gratifying.
Welcome back! I’ll add you to my blogroll and feed reader.
Brad, thanks so much for the “welcome back” greetings!!! I just subscribed to yours, and edited the entry on my blogroll as well!!!
Welcome back, David!
Hi Kerry, thank you!!!
