Even the Best Laid Plans

I tried to write a post yesterday. It was lovely. It really was. It took me about a half-hour to compose, which is really a very, very long time for me. Then I hit publish and the post disappeared. It has been a long time since that has happened. Thankful for that! But also irked.

This blog has provided me with many hours of enjoyment. My family has enjoyed it as well. It has never earned me money. Perhaps $20 every 6 months...if that. But I've spent more than that for designs. It seems to be a time-suck mostly.

I wonder how long this will last. I love to look back but I hate the lack of reward. I've always known I wanted recognition. I'm a praise junkie. Posts are lagging. Though it is summer and interest in blogs in general wanes in summer time.

We'll see what happens. I guess.

I think posting and commenting has gone down for everyone as some of the energy around blogging spreads to twitter and FB and wherever else. I say if it's fun, do it, if it's not, don't; or don't sweat it if you skip a day or 3 or 10.

Aw, well, I'd miss you if you left! And, Mayberry is right. Blogland gets a little slower in the summer.

I've been struggling with the idea of whether to just walk away from blogging or keep going. Stuff going on here that just makes me exhausted, I guess, by the end of a day and I just have lost steam. I don't know. Maybe it's because I realized I've been blogging far longer than I thought I ever would and am wondering what more there is to say.

I also think it's the season and things are down all around. Also, Twitter, has killed a little bit of blogging, in my opinion. At least mine!

Long story short, I get it. I don't know what I'm doing about it, but I get it!

Darn! Post gremlins are afoot.

Don't know what made me say that.

I've often wondered how long my blog will last. Will I still want to blog about my boys when they are 10 years old? Will I blog about something different then? Will only the top blogs be of interest to anyone? Things to ponder....
