Those of you who know me in real life know I *always* have something to say, LOL. I was somewhere today where it was really quiet and no one was around me and I started thinking about blogging in general. Then I was thinking about my life and how amazing I felt about blogging every day for a month. Why you ask? (or hopefully you asked). Here is my life at the moment, probably not unlike many of your own.
Get up at 5am, drive to work ~ 30 min to arrive around 6:30am. Work all day. Drive home. Go to the gym 4-5 days a week for 30-60 minutes. Come home, shower, dinner, chores, sew if I'm lucky and then blog, read blogs, leave comments and answer comments. Go to bed. Now sometimes I am lucky enough to be able to read blogs, comment and answer comments at my real job but sometimes not.
I LOVE it when people leave comments. Face it we all do. Who doesn't like to know that someone, anyone in this whole wide world finds us and what we do interesting. It affirms us as people, right? So I have a HUGE (and I mean huge) list of blogs that I follow, mostly in Google Reader. Life intrudes and I get behind in my reading, and commenting and answering my own comments. I read and cherish every one of the comments you leave. In fact I am so anxious to hear from you all your comments go to my email which is routed to my phone so I can hear you all the time! I love it. When I get around to reading I always try to leave comments, at least 1 or 2 . Lately I have been trying to catch up. I feel like I am spending a LOT of time reading and not so much time sewing. So I developed a new strategy for this. I will sew when it is light out and blog/read when it is dark out. I don't like to sew in the dark anyway. This is helping me keep my head above water so to speak.
I am planning on taking some photos of my sewing area as it is now and after it is all put away for Christmas, then decorated for Christmas. I'll be super on top of blogs with everything put away right? I hope so. How do you cope with keep up in blogland? As my DD would say, "and the point of the story??" Is that if I don't happen to respond to your comment it isn't because of anything but life getting in the way, OK?
On an entirely different aside, the infamous Madam Samm over at Stash Manicure has invited me to be a guest blogger!! Isn't that exciting?? My post is not until January 19th so you will have to stay tuned. If you haven't done so already, go and check them out. Lots of great tips!
Tell her Mama Spark sent you! And if you have something you would like me to post about leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do!
