Today I am getting my roof and sidewalks pressure washed so there are no pictures, my windows are draped in plastic so there is no light. In Florida we grow mold and mildew on everything so periodically we need to pay someone to clean it all off. Tomorrow and this weekend I will put it all back together, wash windows and outside furniture, not a fun task. So I thought I would take a little time today to talk about Blogging.
Recently three of my blogging friends have decided to take a blogging break. I completely understand because blogging does take up a good bit of time. I just feel sad because I will worry about them and wonder if all is okay. It is funny how these people you read about, slowly creep into your system and suddenly you feel like you are friends. Have you met them in person or talked on the phone, not likely but they are there periodically and that is a comfort.
Blogging has turned out to be so much more than I ever imagined. I started my blog solely so I could read my sisters blog and comment. Gradually I read other blogs and started to comment. Eventually I started to write on my own blog, and wonders of all wonders, people started to comment to me. I am a slow blog, meaning that I have been blogging for a while and I don't have a million followers and comments. I am always and I mean always just thrilled when anyone takes the time in their busy life to leave a comment here on Mereknits. I try very hard to visit you back, and if I missed you once I will surely get back to you if you comment twice.
I am perplexed by some blogs. I find it amazing when you leave comment after comment and that blogger does not take the time to write to you. I understand if you have a million and eleven comments you can't get back to everyone, but on a smaller blog I find that just plain rude. Lately I have been doing a blog spring cleaning. I feel my time is precious and if I can't have some sort of relationship with you than I will find space for someone else. I don't mean to sound rude, but time is short these days. There are so many special people out there in blog land that would be thrilled with more blogging friends, I would like to spend my time with them.
I want you all to know that you are all very special to me. Your kind words have helped me on many an occasion, more than you will ever know. I find your creativity to be simply amazing. You challenge me to be a better knitter, crocheter and above all a better person. I appreciate every second you spend visiting me here on Mereknits, because I know your life is as busy as can be.
To those of you taking a blogging break, I hope you will check in and let me know you are doing okay. For those of you new to Mereknits, I welcome you with open arms and hope that I can be a great blogging friend to you. For those of you that have been a faithful friend, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful day.
