I thought about doing a post yesterday but I loved that picture of Seattle and didn’t want to see it moved lower on the page…isn’t that dumb? What a beautiful day that was, though.
As we become more and more immersed in planning our move, the blogs I read daily become more and more important to me. I just want to know what people are thinking and doing so much – I guess to try to project what I will be doing in the not too distant future. I’ll be adding a few new blogs I’ve been watching to our links list sometime today.
When you take on blogging people start to depend on your posts. One blog we were watching just stopped writing one day and I really worried about them!
It can be a lot of work to blog sometimes – but then the opposite is true, too – that the ideas and words can flow quickly. I keep a list of topics that I’m thinking about and I imagine other bloggers do, too.
But why do we do it? Make our thoughts and feelings and everything public? Is it some pathetic attempt at our 15 minutes of fame? Or a chance to connect with people we wouldn’t normally reach? Is it because some of us are frustrated writers or that we want to keep a diary for our own use? I still don’t know exactly what it is for me…although it is probably a bit of all of those reasons. And since I am on a sort of stream-of-consciousness flow here, if you haven’t read E.M. Forster’s The Machine Stops, it is a great read for a blogger. The amazing thing is that it was written in 1909. The entire text is available to read here.
I sometimes look at our blog statistics and see that there are regular visitors. (The only thing you can see is the city and state or country they are from, and sometimes their domain name.) I do wish that they would come our of lurkdom sometime and make a comment or just say hello. It is really nice to hear from people.
Enough rambling! It’s time for me to get going on some project or another to get us closer to moving day! Hasta luego!
