Just some thoughts on the blogging experience

I began blogging in 2009 according to my records.  I recently made my 365th post as well...   that means i have posted about every third day for more than 3 years.  When i saw this image:

i knew it was for me.  lol

Most all of my gardening activities and some of my household shenanigans are done with a thought of this blog.  Sometimes i discount the idea as too boring,  other times i don't care if it is and i still share it.  My long-winded ramblings and repetitive thoughts may be boring to some,  but i keep recording thoughts because at the very least,  i find them useful to look back upon.  If anyone else finds the entries useful, or helpful  i am happy,  if not its ok.  I don't expect anyone to be hanging on to my every word.  Tee hee.

I just simply find it fun to blog.  I adore reading the blogs i follow and though i don't always comment,  i read every update as soon as i can.  Blogging has been one of the most enjoyable hobbies i have picked up in a long time.  

I appreciate all my followers and especially love the comments,  i always try to reply.  I don't like the Capcha thing to avoid spammers,  so i don't make repliers have to deal with it.  I weed out the spam myself...and whooo- do i get a lot of it.  My "Carrot and Parsnip Seed Tape" entry seems to be the most popular to spammers for some reason.  Some bot always tries to get through,  i have no idea why.

Well,  thats all i just wanted to say how much fun i have blogging and thank you to all who follow my ramblings.  Your comments encourage me and i'm glad i'm not alone out here in cyberspace talking to thin air.  lol

You wrote what I have thought to say for a long time. I love to blog, and really it has been a written journal of my days & thoughts here where I live. If others read my blog and comment I am so happy, but I would continue blogging even if there were no comments.

I publish my blog every year for my family and this past December my husband ( after reading the published blog) said "this is really a history of our family" and I was pleased he saw this. When I re-read in published form the blog I write, I realized there was so much content that would have been lost to our family if I had overlooked the everyday aspects of our lives, the real content of what is important to our family.

I hope you save and publish your blog, if only for yourself and those who love you.

I never thought about saving and publishing it, but i'm considering that now. I think if my mother or grandmother had blogged it would be something i'd love to have as a keepsake. I don't post a lot about my kids because i'm still a bit concerned about privacy, but i bet if they were to read it 20 years from now they will remember being there when i wrote the entry.

Its been a lot of fun!
