it feels like the internet's been really quiet lately. or is that just me? are we all beginning our winter hibernation already? i sure hope not. it's only october 1st! get out there people!
it's october 1st! i said that twice. i'm sort of in my own head this morning, blame it on the rain. not that it requires blame. sometimes being in one's own head can really be a good thing. what am i thinking about? success, time management, having another baby, friendship, blogging, travel, fall food. all over the board, it seems.
i always appreciate when bloggers, new or old, open themselves up for questions. it seems we used to do this more often than we do now. admittedly, my blog roll has significantly decreased in the last two years or so, but i can't remember the last time i saw a post like it. is anyone still doing it? (last time i did was 2011!) i think a lot of blogging has changed, in fact. has instagram taken its place? comments have gone down (for me the reason is this: commenting on phones is stupid. though, i'm sure the reason goes deeper.). so has advertising. "sponsor posts" have taken their place. are people still starting blogs from scratch? is it too late?
all that to say, my point today is that new readers come along who, most likely, don't dive into every bit of the archives so here i am, a stranger to them. hello friends, new and old! not only that, but there are long standing readers who only know what i put out there. while yes, i do blog what i'm comfortable blogging, i know there's a million things i'm still comfortable blogging but just don't.
so, let's chat? is this a good idea? i'm staying optimistic.
comment moderation is on, so that nothing will appear in the comment thread. just in my email box. then, i'll address the comments (you know, as long as they're kosher) in another post. sound good?
and while we're asking questions, can i ask you some?
// why do you read blogs?
// how did you hear about this one?
// what are your favorite posts?
// what's your favorite blog and why?
have at it. and thanks, as always, for reading.
