The other day somebody I barely know asked me if it's "hard to blog?" Then before I could answer she said "It must not be, so many people are doing it." Huhhh... was that a burn?... It felt like it a little...
To belatedly answer her question... Yes and No... No, actually blogging is a lot of fun, but it can be hard to find the time or feel like you have anything of relevance to say... Then there is the blow to your ego... When I first started blogging I had like 60-80 readers a day... Now I have like 15-35... It's only a matter of time before I chase them off too... I get an average of one comment for every ten visitors... Ouch... As for the drop in readers, I like to tell myself it is because I stopped blogging regularly for awhile this spring when my parents were in crisis and I was flying back and forth... Not that I bored them to death... (I hope...)
Is it wrong to get your teen a new cell phone for "back to school" because you think it might help them fit in? Now mind you Sparky is not only new to this state and school, but has been homeschooling so she already has a few "weirdness" marks against her... We also live in a "status" town... A very "posh" kinda place if you will... I wish I was the kind of parent who didn't feel the need to help her kid "fit it" but alas I do... I could get all defensive here and tell you all the ways we have taught her that "stuff" isn't what matters, and I know I am opening myself up to judgement to even bring this up, but there it is... Any thoughts?
I used to do a weekly post called "Five Favorites Friday"... Where I listed what I was loving that week... I started this when I first started this blog and I liked doing it, a lot. When things got crazy this spring I stopped doing it, and was toying with starting up again... Nobody actually said they missed it, but it was fun doing it... Any thoughts?
It was really, really humid here today, but not at all hot... And we were all miserable... So, they are right... It's not the heat, it's the humidity...
Speaking of the humidity... Since it has been so humid I keep wearing my hair up in a (sort of) bun with those plastic hair clips... Like this:
(It keeps it off my neck.) One of my girlies informed me those went out of style back in the 90's (come to think of it one of my clips might be circa 1995) and the other girlie contends they they are just a styling tool like pony tail holders and bobby pins therefor they aren't subject to "in or out" of style... Any thoughts... (Mind you, I plan to keep wearing mine either way...)
I need something to read... I finished my pile of "books to read" and now I am at a loss... I usually read fiction and I seem to lean towards mysteries in the summer months... That being said, I am at a loss... A friend suggested a book the other day on facebook so I ordered that, but I need more then one book "on deck"... Any Thoughts? What are you reading right now?
Thanks for listening,
