Blogging Breaks Are Overrated

Just when you thought I was taking a blogging break, here I am with a new post.

I can’t help it: I love blogging. The only downside happens on those days that I just don’t have anything of interest to say. But when I don’t post, I miss the interaction with my readers.

And just when I needed a little extra encouragement, I received this message Monday evening in an email:

I have so much enjoyed your posts and have forwarded many of them to my sister in Huntsville, Alabama.  She is a naturalist and loves your outdoor photos.  She’s also a horsewoman and loves your horse photos, and a cat-lover as well.  I always read your posts with a big smile on my face, so you can rest assured of the pleasure and interest you bring to other people’s lives. “

This was from a gentleman in Georgia who is researching his genealogy and discovered my blog as a result of that research. (I shared his first contact with me in this Random Five Friday post). He now believes with some certainty that he and I are distantly related, and promises to share his manuscript with me once it’s complete.

Every comment/compliment regarding my posts is much appreciated, whether it’s left here on the blog, on the Facebook link or from those people I see in person.

So, I’m back to blogging after what may be the shortest break in history. But, don’t be concerned if there isn’t a post everyday.

A little break now and then can be refreshing.

  14. My mother always used to say about letter writing that even if your everyday life didn’t seem that interesting to you other people might find it so. I guess the same goes for blogging.
