I don't even really know what to say. Or write about. I only know that I miss blogging. And for the past several weeks I've felt the call of the blogosphere tugging at my fingertips. Things will happen in my life that I want to write about. Or something will happen in the news that I want to share my views on. But not in a combative, Facebook debate sort of way. And then I think - I wish I was still blogging.
The world of blogging has changed so much since I first started my blog years ago. Back then we had a little circle of blogging friends who visited each other regularly, started getting to know each other, and in many cases lasting friendships in the real world were made. I still keep in touch with many of those friends I made through facebook, or texting. Some have gone on to be big-time money-making famous bloggers. Others have quit blogging. In both cases, I miss reading their blogs each day, giving my little piece of input on their posts, and I miss seeing the comments they left on whatever post I had made that day. It was a time-consuming, sometimes not very productive way of life - but it sure was fun. :) Then I felt like when I was making a post, I had an actual audience that I was speaking to. Now it feels weird - like I'm just typing to no one. I have no idea who, if anyone will see this post. I sort of feel like a new blogger just starting out again, with no audience, and no way of knowing if there is a potential audience out there.
For those who may be past readers of my blog - how has life been treating you? I have a whole pile of news about our life to catch you up on!
Like for example: My baby is 2 1/2, my girls are in 4th, 7th and 9th grades, and my son is a SENIOR! WHAT?? I seriously blinked and boom - they're big. It'll take awhile to get up to date on each of their lives. But they amaze me and make me proud every day. Also, Jeremy and I will be celebrating 20 years of marriage this winter! TWENTY!!! That is CA-razy!! I seriously cannot be that old. No. Way.
So here's to my attempt at getting back to blogging. I don't know how well I'll do, I just know that I need to give it a shot. Because I really miss it. And I miss the connections made with so many great women out there and would like to be part of a community like that once again.
Do me a favor, will ya? If you happen to be reading this post, just leave a little comment to say "hi", just so I know you're out there. ;) Thanks!
