thank you!

You are all SO amazing!  I DO want to blog again.  I just need to do a better job of balancing it.  I like to be successful at things, and that leads me to sometimes obsessing and overdoing things in that pursuit.  I’m not blogging to make money though.  Really, it’s just a nice other form of camaraderie, and that will be my approach.  I think if I keep it to no more than 3, maybe 4 times a week posting, it will work out.  I don’t need to post every single day to keep you wonderful people coming back.  That makes me smile.

Life is so darned precious.  And fretting over things that, in the big scheme of things, aren’t really that important, is squandering the precious time that we have.  That has been my lesson.

I enjoy reading about your lives, and I enjoy sharing mine.  Isn’t that the essence of successful blogging?  It is to me.

Next time, I’ll tell you about my new car!  🙂

    Welcome back! I blog a great deal less than I used to, I just don't have so much time now. There have been some big changes in my life and they have to come first. Also I think you have to have some sort of life to blog don't you? But I'd never stop blogging but sometimes it just has to go on the back burner for a bit.

    I want to hear about your new car so I can be very jealous. Hopefully someday that will be a blog post of mine…in a hundred years! LOL Sounds like you have your blogging dilemma worked out. Hooray:-)

    Yes, write when you you WANT to. Blogging should never feel like an obligation. Share your life. Put it in print. Throw it all out there. The feedback will bring a smile to your face, as it seems to have done with your return to writing.

    It is wonderful to have you back. Blog if and when you can. It shouldn't feel like a chore! Lately I've been struggling with blogging and have cut back to 2 or 3 days a week. Eventually I'll get back on track but right now I'm not motivated.

    Everything in life ebbs and flows, Martha, and I think blogging is as immune to that (maybe moreso? in my case?) than anything else. I tend to be pretty black and white, all in-or-not-at-all kind of person, and/but I need to temper that, especially when it comes to blogging. Hope you get your mojo back soon. 🙂 And thank you. 🙂

    I have trouble keeping up with bloggers who post every day. I'm kinda busy living my life so s couple times a week is all I am up to posting!

    I don't blog myself, but I so enjoy reading other' s blogs. It makes me feel connected to humanity. And life can get a little lonely sometimes being a widow and as we age. I look forward to your return.

    I'm glad you are going to keep to blogging and to be honest, I prefer fewer posts per week versus every day. I know a lot of people do but there's only so much time to read and write and I figure any from two to four is more manageable for me as a reader! So Yay! So glad to have discovered you and now clicking follow!
