...perhaps not anymore!
How long has it been?
When I put a ban on reading my bloglines I really had no idea that blog writing would fall by the wayside aswell.
Now I am sitting here typing and deleting at equal pace (I keep telling myself a paper journal may be simpler)...but I would like to give this blog thing another go...so...what should I tell you? (If anyone is listening anyway)
I have been having fun and getting back to myself in a way. In honesty, I really had no idea how much I had lost my own train of thought. One problem is that my bloglines is chock full of BIG talent. I originally thought that should be inspirational but in reality it has only tended toward feeding an increasingly critical inner voice which I found severly limiting and sensoring to a fairly fragile sense of creative accomplishment.
Needless to say, I have decided that Bloglines has to remain banned indefinitely. I had become a blog reader, an art viewer and a success voyeur. These are not bad things to be, and I loved doing them but I felt days and months drift by without ever being a blog writer, an art maker or feeling much of a success....
I actually don't feel a lot in actuality has changed...but I do know my inner critic is a lot quieter without the unneccessary comparisons and pushy self-expectations. I have actually been making some art, selling some fabric and I even got back into swapping - I have been keeping it simple.
So, right now, I have no idea what anyone is up to or has been up to for a while...don't kid yourself that I am not dieing to get into that huge long bloglines list and read every blog post, from my 300 or so blogs, that I have missed over the last 3 months...I am a recovering Bloglines addict... (btw - I wonder how long that would take?)
So apologies if I have not commented, congratulated or complimented lately. My sentiment toward all my blog friends is still very warmly appreciative and sincere. I hope I have not lost too many of you and that you still might enjoy watching and reading as I travel about my tiny corner of the world.
