I've been thinking about how different blogging has become, since I started four years ago. Back then, I was able to join different sets of blogging communities, so to speak. Of moms, of pastors wives, other Christian women. And within those little networks there was community. We read each others posts, commented, followed along in life. Became friends.
Over the years, some of them stopped blogging. And others, like myself, became less diligent at it. Many kept on keeping on, and I just became totally lazy about commenting. (Plus, we were friends on Facebook and I can keep up with them that way ;) And my google reader grew. And grew and grew and grew until I couldn't keep up with all the blogs I wanted to read, let alone comment.
So I became an observer. Many I check in on whenever there is a new post, but rarely do I comment. I just observe, and quickly head on to the next thing. No wonder I ADORE Pinterest. I get to look at people's AWESOME stuff, and benefit from their AMAZING tutorials, all the while never stopping to say, "Hey Lady, you're genius!"
Shame on me.
I'm going to do better. Probably not great...but better.
PS - It's a snow day here. The first this year. Theoretically I would be enjoying having all my kids home, and we would play board games and laugh together. In reality, they can't stop bickering and are eating me out of house and home. And Lucy won't take a nap. Life is hard. *cough*
