shhh... is it spring?



I have been very quiet here this last month. I've barely blogged and hardly commented on other blogs, although I've still been reading them. It's been a hard, long month, where the much needed end of winter hasn't really materialised and I've felt the unseasonal cold more keenly for that. It's the third of April and it's snowed today.

Through not blogging, I've discovered that when you don't blog for a while you enter a kind of feedback loop, where the fact you've not blogged means that the next post you create had better be really excellent to make up for it, and so the pressure to blog, and blog well, escalates, and that becomes a reason not to blog just yet... I've also felt the "I've not blogged for a while so I must blog a lot now to make up for it" anxiety, along with the "I've not blogged for a while so perhaps I should just not blog again at all" sensation.

But I'm still here, still finding words to say, and still seeing photos I'd like to share. Even in my short time blogging here, I've enjoyed meeting people, learning about them and their lives through their blogs, and becoming, in a small way, part of a large and fascinating community that so many others belong to.

So while I may not know exactly when I shall blog again at this very moment, I will do so. And I'll enjoy it. Thanks for reading :)

  1. I think it's good to step away for a while every now and then. Come back when you feel inspired and/or find something you want to share. :)

  2. This post really resonates with me. I have been overwhelmed with life and school and something had to give. So my blog has taken backstage to the rest of my life. Then I have a few spare moments but nothing of significance to say. I'm learning that my relationship with my blog waxes and wanes with life's events. But it is always waiting for me when I need it.

    1. Oh, I love that! Love that it's possible to turn to blogging when we can, but that it shouldn't be another big 'to-do' when other things mater more. Thanks so much for saying that, and saying it so well.
