As Neil Diamond Would Say
Flipping heck! (or words to that effect...)
Thank you for all your feedback and supportive comments on my last post. I was overwhelmed. And like most of you, I have come to the same conclusion about my blog and the blogging world in general. It is not the same as Facebook. Not at all. I have been Facebook free since Friday, and I can honestly say I haven't missed it one jot. But I have missed writing my blog and reading yours.
I'm with you; a blog and blogging is not the same as Facebook. It's far more meaningful than a throw away comment or a daft post. Yes, it's true that I am quite often flippant and daft here. But the things I share can be deeply personal, and I'd never share in the same way on Facebook. In fact as a real live three dimensional person, I rarely share personal stuff at all. With anyone. So I have decided to stay away from Facebook for a month, and after that time I shall have a friend cull, group cull and change some settings. I think that may make it feel less invasive and more user friendly for me.
Funnily enough not being able to access my blog or yours was taken out of my hands this weekend, as Sam commandeered my computer for revision. His has been corrupted and he starts his AS Levels this week. What was a mother to do? Being forced to take a weekend sabbatical, made me realise how much I miss my space and your spaces when they aren't there.
I have a few posts waiting in the wings. I have all of yours to catch up on. I shall be commandeering my computer this evening (I am hastily writing this at Sam's desk while he has a walk into town for some fresh air and a saffron bun). There may well be a flurry of activity around here for a couple of days.
I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. And a belated Happy Mother's Day to all of you who celebrated at the weekend. Here's hoping that you were spoilt rotten.
Catch up with you all very soon.
