Some days it seems that I have things to post here multiple times during a day, though I usually limit my posts to one. Other days, I sit here and stare at the screen, wondering what to write. Some of my friends that blog chronicle the events of their day, others reflect with some depth on what is happening in the world, and some do a combination of the above. I suppose at various times we all do all of the above. I started this blog to stay in touch and share pictures from my world, but I think I have come to the point that I don't know why I write any more. This blog doesn't get a lot of traffic, and although new visitors are here everyday, the numbers would indicate that most don't return. My life must be pretty dull, or I'm too guarded to write about what goes on, or something. It doesn't seem to interest very many people, and I'm not sure what to make of that. Maybe the last few months have been too intense to allow me to take the time to step back and be reflective, profound, or interesting. Maybe I feel too vulnerable to be open and share. Whatever the cause, I don’t feel good about it.

I have no cause for complaint. A friend may lose her job. Another friend has hit bottom and decided its time to go sober. My sister-in-law has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Life may not be grand in this corner, but it could be a hell of a lot worse.

Well, here’s to bad days. And here’s to better ones.

Hi Anne, I hope you will keep posting on your blog. Since you've been so (understandably) busy, and don't post much on the message boards I frequent, this is one way I can keep up on what's going on in your world. I would miss it if you stopped. And I always think you have a way with words which I enjoy reading! Hugs to you! I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I am here every single day and also enjoy everything you have to offer dear friend. :c) I do know what you mean though... I sometimes feel as if I am talking to myself on my blog... yet, there's just something nice about having my own space to do what I want and so I continue. I was inspired to begin my blog because of you, and I hope you will continue as well. The path does get bumpy at times, and there are days when it does seem as if there is just nothing to say, but those days pass, and those who know and love you really look forward to visiting here. Hugs!

Hi Anne I hope you keep on posting. I sometimes reply and sometimes don't depending on what else is going on that day. I love your pictures and I love your use of words and the thoughtful ways you say things. I also could not possible complain about any frequency of posting as I hardly ever post on mine! I mainly use it as a place to show pictures to my friends. I joined up because I had to to be able to reply to you!

Hi Anne, I'll join the chorus of the rest...I so enjoy your Blog, often I don't post, as I really don't have a signifant comment. It is my way of keeping up with you and what is going on in your life.
You at least are consistant, my blog on the other hand I rarely post on, and use it as I did my journal for years.
I do need to learn how to download and LO's ....
So, my friend, keep on blogging...you do have a way with words that many derive pleasure from.

now don't you even start thinking you shouldn't blog! I read it everyday and I love the way you write and keeping up with you. First and foremost, it should be for YOU, a chronicle of what your days are like. I print mine out each month and keep it in a big binder and I love looking back and seeing what happened on certain days and months.
Love you!

Hi Gail,
I read your blog every day, I've just been too lazy to sign up before now. I would also miss your posts if you stopped posting.

Hi Anne, I really enjoy reading your blog! It is like a calming retreat from my world and it's nice! Thanks for sharing your world for me!

Oh, yes, Anne, please don't even think about not blogging. Your blog is like a respite of the craziness of life. You're way with words are invigorating while at the same time giving a sense of peace that I look forward to!
But Kip is right, you should be doing it for you first and then for all of us lucky readers!
