Time to pull the plug?
A wet and cloudy evening here, so no chance of a glimpse of the super moon, which is a great pity after we have had clear moonlit nights leading up to it.
In recent weeks I have been thinking whether or not I should continue with this blog. I don't care to share lots of family details on here, which makes for a plain and simple reporting of what I do. Loading photos on rural broadband takes forever some days, but I don't like blog writing without the illustrations. I try and include lots of countryside photos, but I guess after a while everyone knows the area I live in and it becomes plain repetitive and there is a limit to what I can write about the scenery.
When I write about something which really interests me I don't get any response. If I write about sewing or recipes I do, but I am more than the sum of my domestic attributes. I'm not a political animal, although there is plenty I could write on recent political happenings.
I often get inspiration for writing this blog as I would LIKE to write it when I am out and about, but short of recording it somehow, the words are all gone by the time I get back home, and there have been a lot of calls on my time this summer, since I have tried to really make a go of my little antiques business.
Perhaps it is time to take a blogging break, and debate whether I call it a day sometime in the New Year. I will still follow friends' blogs, but perhaps it is time for a rethink on mine.
