I really miss blogging, I miss doing it, and I miss reading it. I want to bring it back.

I resent Twitter for quieting the voices that I used to enjoy sitting down and reading for a few minutes. By and large all the old crew have gone quiet, myself included. My own silence I blame on all the factors that have probably afflicted everyone a)twitter b)facebook c) busy-ness d) real life, but WOE. I want the voices back. I want the pleasure of a daily scan of my RSS reader filled with local people, not just people who have managed to make a living out of it (kudos to you if you have).

Twitter is ok, but it is noisy, and busy, bring back the jokes! And the links! And comments! Remember them? Where a conversation would happen over a period of days? Not just minutes?

Turns out I'm old, and I liked things better back then. Now 'scuse me, I have to go and see if anyone has "liked" and awesome update I made.

I agree you should blog more ;-)

Mike Riversdale said...

couldn't agree more.

I need more than 140 characters or a "Like" ... I want someone to think about what they want to say before blathering it onto the intertubes. Of course that argument was aimed directly at bloggers of "old" ... ho hum

(BTW: which is why I really like Google Buzz ;-)

Mike, I always blathered, but I definiely took more than 140 characters to do so. Am I going to have to look into this buzz thing? How do we get everyone back?

Donna, you're ace. And approximately my only reader left. Hey, I'm going to Melbourne!

I'm still reading your blog! Oh, the bullet points. xx

Dude, you think you're old for wanting to bring back blogging? I just bitched about how no one ever writes letters any more. I'm pretty much my grandmother.

But yeah, I feel ya.

Bullet points ftw.

For those of us who like to ramble then twitter doesn't fit the bill.

I like blogging too.....but it's those little things that stop me, ya know.....sick kids,distracting husband, cat using me for selfish affections seeking,um..dishwasher needing unpacking and guest room that needs tidying but I would prefer just to torch it..I haven't the strength to tidy up all my craft projects(That I started with good intentions and ended with lack of focus..therefore that are ALL unfinished)I think about you when I read BADDERHOMESAND GARDEN.COM I suspect it might add to your distraction list too.You can curse me later. Keep on blogging, gal. We are listening.

Well, I like reading your blog, and I think it would be great if you posted more often, because I would definitely read it!
