Some random thoughts on blogging:
I still like it. I have fallen into a Monday through Friday poster, and that feels about right to me. The Three Things Thursday may be played out. I'm having trouble thinking of new things. I may change the rules soon.
I'm still conflicted about the discrepency between who I am on the blog and who I am in real life (yes, I know I could use the abbreviation IRL, but I don't like it. it makes me feel like a scary junior higher who uses text messaging too much.) I know that you, dear reader, know that this discrepency is there and is necessary, but it still bothers me.
I have a few friends that stopped posting on their blogs, but I still check from time to time. I know that one of them will be deleting her blog soon, but I don't think that will stop me from occasionally checking.
I have deleted a blog this past month. I had five blogs, but now I have four. I may delete another one. I don't use them anymore. The one I deleted was just for pictures for me and a few friends. I hadn't posted anything in a year and a half. I am a member of one secret blog and I have a secret identity. I haven't used it in a long while.
I have people comment on this blog that I have never met. I have people emailing me for permission to use my pumpkin muffin recipe for non-profit cookbooks. I don't know them, either. It makes me happy, though.
Most of my comments are from family members, which is exactly why I started this blog - to have more communication with family, to share stories and pictures of the kiddos. Thanks, family, for your comments and support. I may go off on strange tangents, but really, this blog is for you.
