Missing In Action

~While I've been personally feeling guilty about neglecting my own blog, I can't help but notice that a few of the other bloggers whom I follow haven't been posting new material much either. I wonder what it is? Have we grown weary of writing about stuff? Or are we just getting lazy? In my own case, it seems that I just can't find the time anymore. Blogging is almost like keeping a diary;
the kind of thing where you write down your thoughts each day and muse over the things you've done as well as the people with whom you've interacted. It should be simple and fun. When it becomes a chore, you begin to neglect it. I guess I'm going through the chore phase. Each night I tell myself "You'd better write a new post!" But I end up shutting down my laptop and going to bed instead.
~Perhaps it's because the spring and summer seasons are hectic around here and there doesn't seem to be a good block of time alone to write? Or perhaps it's because we haven't done any new projects recently so I don't have as many stories to share. Or...I'm just getting lazy. In any event, I know how disappointed I get when I go to a blog that I enjoy reading only to find that I've already read their last blog post two or three times! Maybe we've all contracted some sort of blogger virus that's keeping us from updating things for our readers? I hope the enjoyment of writing new posts hasn't run its course for me; I hope I'm just going through a phase. And I hope the bloggers I follow haven't fallen into the same trap. I'll keep looking each day, hoping for updates. And I'll keep nudging myself to get back into the swing of it. We'll see.


  1. Certain times of the year everyone gets busy with family activities and are out more so we don't blog as frequently....Summer is always like that...It's expected..When Fall gets here everyone will be back at blogging and sharing our decorating or when the kids start back to school...

  2. Joanne .... I've noticed the same thing.
    I think we all kinda started about the same time .... and I think we have said
    it All !! lol
    How many times can ya say did the laundry, planted in the garden, had the family over... yada yada yada !!! If something neat is going on or we are doing a project its much easier to write.
    I too still visit my favorites hoping to read something new. I also feel facebook has taken up some time ..... a couple of years ago I don't think too many of us were on FB.
    Anyway nice to see you post, EnJoy your time at the Cape !! Hugs ~ Connie xox

  3. I'm guilty. This last year has thrown me quite a few curveballs, and my Mom always said "If you don't have anything nice to say..." - so I haven't had much to say lately. But thankfully, things are getting back to normal now. I intend to do more posting now. It's nice to see you back as well. I bet the Cape is gorgeous this time of year. Show us some photos! I love seeing pics of your home too. Love your kitchen, I remember that one well. So what's new with you??
    big hugs from ga,


I love hearing from you, but due to a large number of spam comments recently, I am now monitoring comments before publishing them. The Internet is a weird place sometimes!
