I love having actual conversations with the people who leave comments on my blog. I have been known to go back to blogs I comment on and continue the discussion with those writers. See a pattern here? I like to discuss, converse about, dissect with others – about almost topic.
So I am suddenly looking at the number of comments on my blog differently. All almost 2,500 of them have not been made by the visitors to my virtual home. A good portion of them have been written by me. I like that but then came Momalom.com’s second Five for Ten challenge.
Then comes the realization that I cannot keep up with the blog reading, let alone the comments on others’ sites or the conversations on my own. So, as a sort of apology, I want to thank you all for reading what I have been writing recently. AND, I want to tell you all I am still reading Five For Ten posts. I have been overwhelmed by comments and blogs and just lost.
I needed to take some time to recharge. My mind was in overdrive and I couldn’t get it back where it was going a reasonable speed. I had so many things going on in life and in virtureal life – Thanks for that word, Aidan – that I would open up to write and just stare at the blank screen.
I have found a wonderful way to recharge – just leave it all behind. I took some great day trips, read some good and not so good books, saw a movie at midnight. Life is getting back to normal and so will my blog this week.
