So good to see you again!

Avril Horn

Good to see you back.

Monica

about time too! Woman can't live of tennis alone...

(Must meet soon)

Monica

OMG I can now comment again!! WEIRD.

lynn

Fab to see you back.

Fiona

Wondered where you'd gone. Was a bit worried. Glad you're ok.

Fiona

Ps but I don't know if I'd have the discipline to write a blog. I'm too lazy to even write comments often but I love to read your blog. Your writing and photography are inspiring. But don't disappear without saying you're ok 😉

Sue

Hurrah! What Monica said about meeting soon -we should. Thinking about hopping back on the blog wagon myself soon.

Julie

So pleased you're back - your words [few or many] are a pleasure to read and have been missed

Lovely to see you! It's all to easy to stop blogging without quite meaning to (I hold my hand up to that one) but it does still hold charm for me. Doesn't mean I'll actually keep writing it with any regularity, but ...

CJ

How lovely to see a post from you. Nine years is quite amazing, not many blogs have been around that long, I'm very impressed. CJ xx

Angel Jem

Do, please. I like your writing.

Toffeeapple

Well I shall be glad to see your writing more frequently so will be keeping my fingers crossed.

hello. nice sky!

Louise

Yes, good to see you back! And beautiful colours in your photo.

niki thomas

Hurrah as well!

Emma

Hello there. Val and I were reminiscing about how blogging felt five or six years ago. We'd log on to Google reader and meet up with friends. I'm hoping those days aren't gone completely. It's lovely to read you again x

Magic Bean

Mmm. Kept popping by to see if you were back and now you are.
I thought you were going to tell us what your thesis was all about...
Ax

Megan

Just because. And hi.

Paola

Hello again and what a great comeback with that sky!

Monica

This seems as good a place as any to write this and ask this question. Where have all the blogs gone? I read craft blogs especially but more general ones too but they are all dropping off, one by one. Do you know why this might be? Are people just burnt out?

Surely a blog is a web log - an account of things happening recently, and they don't stop do they? Even if you ostensibly do the same things everyday (and I do), everyday is very different because I am different everyday and my perceptions change. So I don't get why people run out of things to say. If they were readable last month, then they still are today and tomorrow. We don't stop talking to people around us because we have said it all before.

Anyway, the times they are a changing. Quite sad really. Instagram is not a replacement and neither is Facebook both of which have nothing on a decent blog. Congratulations on those nine years of blogging. It actually seems the older ones are those that are still here. I think it is lack of ulterior motive for starting them in the first place and more of an aptitude for writing for its own sake rather than to market, promote or monetise. A shame how money gets in the way of so many things, for so many people. There was perhaps an innocence in blogging that was replaced by too many people trying to capitalise on it. But without a heart to the writing, that can't work.
