Maybe I should post on my blog more often

Ya think?

I have really fallen out of the habit of posting on my blog. Once a year is not enough, but that seems to be my routine for the last few years. When did it become so hard? FaceBook has taken up my time, sometimes in a good way and sometimes not. I belong to several private and public FB groups where we post and comment back and forth. The time I spend on FB, now, I used to spend browsing other people’s blogs and posting something on my own.

I’m not alone. For whatever reasons, several people whose blogs I used to follow have not posted anything for 2 years or more. I miss them! It makes me appreciate all the more the people who do take the time to let others get a glimpse of their lives and talents through their blogs. I want to be one of them again.

Many thanks to Lori Anderson and her Pretty Things Blog for bringing back the Bead Soup Blog Party. Click the link to learn a little  history and more about this year’s special twist. The twist is that we are to send a bead or beads that we have hung on to for a long time, but are willing to gift to someone else. Those special beads that we all have. The ones we just can’t quite decide out how to use, but we’ve kept them for one reason or another.

I think it’s a great idea. Lots of fun and I can’t wait to see what people create when the reveal happens on March 25. My partner for the bead swap is Hannah Rosner. She’s a lot more regular about blogging than I have been. Check out her blog: Good River Beads and Jewelry. Hope she likes what I send, or that it inspires her. Per the rules of the blog party, we are not allowed to show a photo of what we sent until our partner reveals their beads after they receive them. But we can do this:

Thanks Lori for helping me get back on that horse!

  2. YES!!!

    Please blog more :-) Funny how I came to the same conclusion this week.

    I am going to make a same list of people who I follow that blog. And you are one of them.

    Which brings me to the following: I saw that you do link to other bloggers and my name is on it (thank you) BUT with the wrong link! Can you use the following link to connect our blogs together? https://www.laleipsigjewels.com/en/helga-blogs

    Big hug, Helga

  4. Glad to see you! I’ve been trying to get back to my blog, as well. I vowed at the beginning of the year to post weekly. Although I haven’t made that timeline, it has been more than usual! Let’s all get back to posting and reading and commenting – I miss it all.

    • Hi Vickie. I love the idea of people getting back to their blogs. I’ve missed it too. I haven’t been reading many over the past year, either. I like Stephen King’s quote on writing. It easily applies to blogs. “If you don’t have time to read, then you don’t have time to write.”
      Glad to hear from you and I’ll be checking your blog more regularly!
