Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Hello.


Have you ever wondered why people blog? Neither have I. But.....I was just thinking why I started...and how it evolved and really, how it died. I started this blog in 2005. I was going through a little rough period in life and figured this was a good way to vent. But I wound up liking this world and liking the people who lived here and wrote here. I even became good friends with a few of you and met some of you too. I just wrote stream of consciousness type "stuff"....mostly silly things. Now, I do not consider myself a creative writer or a comedian or even a little talented in anything to do with writing....but I wrote and carried on and got silly and looked forward to seeing everyone and reading what you wrote every day. I blogged daily for a good long time.
Now, tho, so many things have happened. I retired, hub went to heaven. I got lost for period of time. Then I came back from that edge of darkness, different. It's like I look back on this blog and see someone else must of written it. Weird. But anyhoo, the life I lead today is a good one. I wouldn't change anything (cept maybe having hub back)....I'm happy, content and look forward to every day I wake up to and am grateful for every day that I get. It's really indescribable. But it lives here, in my heart. And for some reason, I just don't feel the need to blog every single day, so I stop in every once in a while...look around...drop some words to say hello....it's enough for me

Peace

I love blogging, I can step on peoples toes without getting slapped.

I liked it better when you were regular.

I blog when I feel like it. Of course, I'm addicted, so it seems to be every day.

I'm glad you're blogging, otherwise I wouldn't have met ya... HUGS!

When I started blogging I had no idea other people could actually read other peoples blogs and holy moly, even leave comments!

I started a blog because a) I missed keeping a journal, b) my hands hurt too much to write long hand and c) I love seeing what else I can do with a computer. And I also love playing with photos. Over the years it's evolved into certain blogs/people that I really enjoy.

I started reading your blog after your husband died. I'm glad you've stepped back into the light.

Big Hugs xo

I still keep an eye out for you, and I'm always happy to see somwthing from you, but I agree about the everyday posting. Sometimes I dont even want to hear whats going on in my head, so I try not to inflict myself on others ! haha
Hope ol' Snot boy is doing well, very happy that you have come through the storms (both kinds, snow and otherwise). It's good to hear from you

Sounds like you've got it going on, Missy. Glad to see you're back from that dark place. I can't imagine surving what you've been through with such a great attitude. You rock!

I'll miss you but am glad that you are in a happy place in your life. God bless.

I love 'chatting' with folks all around the world, and even meeting up with them whenever possible. It is always great to hear from you, and wonderful to hear you sound so positive.

Sending hugs..

I think the blogworld serves different purposes for people at different times. If occassional visits work for you, then that's good.

I'm glad you're doing well. Your style has changed noticeably over the years but your own shining spirit and sense of fun always come through. You are that rare person who radiates love and that is irresistible.

I don't blog as often as I used to either. I still love writing and even more, the exchange with those who comment. These blog friends supply more happiness than they know. I'm glad you're still going to be around when the urge hits, which is what I have settled into as well with my blog, and I wish you great happiness in all your endeavors.
