I’m feeling a little lonely out here amongst this vast ocean of blogs.
Over the past month I’ve had several blogger friends announce that they’re skipping out. I mean, come on, what do they think their doing, attending to their lives or something?
Honestly, there are more people than I can count on my fingers that are either taking a blogging break, or have stopped altogether. Oh sure, many bloggers have come and gone since I started doing this thing 18 months ago, but a bunch of them just disappeared all at the same time over the past few weeks.
You’d think I’d be disappointed that my stats page is nearly empty as a result, but I’m not. I miss the blogs from my community of blogger friends with their unique and engaging words. I miss the light-hearted quips of Robin and Carrie. I miss the nostalgia with Linda, and the wise, soul-touching words of Sloan. I miss the story-telling photographs and deep thoughts of Andy. These named are only a few of several more. Even some who are still blogging are posting less frequently.
It’s too hot in Florida to do anything but get heatstroke. In fact, I usually get my cold/flu when it starts getting hot, and sure enough, I’m sneezing, wheezing and coughing as I type this out.
I’m grateful for those of you still hanging in there with me, even if you’re blogging less frequently.
I’m sure there are many more bloggers out there whom I’d enjoy getting to know. I’ve been working at my novel a lot, so it’s difficult to find time to search for more brilliant bloggers. Hopefully some will find me so I can go check them out, at least for now.
Miss you guys. Hope you’re having a great summer.
