I haven’t lost that «blogging feeling» in spite of what it might appear like. My posts have been sporadic, to say the least, considering I posted every day for more than two hundred days this year.
I’m not going to apologize for not posting — I see no reason to. I doubt anyone is sitting around, tapping their fingers, dying to read my next post 🙂 . There have been other, time consuming things on my mind, like handwriting and fountain pens. It’s quite amazing how two, such opposed things as your ‘analogue life’ and the online one can intertwine. You find new groups, communities of likeminded people … both in Instagram and Facebook.
Now … this morning … I made a brief attempt at catching up on my reading list here in WordPress. I felt the same way about that as I do about ‘not posting’; I doubt anyone is keeping tabs on me for not being around commenting. I’ve had enough feeling guilty about trivial stuff.
Got caught up in one, particular post … not only the post itself, but also the comments. One of the numerous, good things about the Internet, is it’s sort of comforting to find out you’re never alone … there are always hundreds, if not thousands, of people with the same ideas/issues/interests as you. Well … it can be bad too, when you think you’ve come up with a totally unique user-ID or something … only to find that it’s taken 🙂
This Saturday morning, we’re bracing for our first nor’easter … a winter storm. We still don’t know whether we’ll get it as snow or rain here in Saint John. Living right at the seaboard, we’re more likely to get rain, but you never can tell. The forecast is still uncertain.
