why I haven't...

  • Social media changes all the time and I can't keep up...I don't know how to add badges, to code, if I am on the best blogging site, what should I add or get rid of etc etc etc

  • It is like having another job.  I can spend an entire day blogging if I wanted to.  This would let me schedule blogs to be posted in the future, in the end freeing up time but for a hobby sometimes it feels like a job.  A job that doesn't pay...

  • I originally started the blog hoping it would lead to "work", so far I got a $50 gift card and a chance to promote a Yummy Mummy Club (YMC) event which earned me some $ and an adventure with Paul. Read about the event here here and here 

  • I have not always been in the right "mood" or felt "up" for blogging 

  • My iphone SE doesn't allow the Blogger app to be downloaded so, anytime anywhere blogging can not occur, a lot of emailing photos to myself then using old phone, chromebook or laptop to do my blogging = time consuming:(

  • From this post...He contacted me, not Tim W, but the other guy from this post...kinda freaked me out a bit.  I won't publish his response because he doesn't require anymore attention.  I don't want my grade four memory tarnished even more.

  • You stop living in the moment.  I catch myself trying to get a photo so I can use it in my blog and the whole time I am in a moment I am thinking about how I am going to blog about it.

  • People use the blog and social media to "keep in touch" but it ends up being one sided. I don't know they are reading my blog but they do know what I am doing I just don't know what they are doing.  I am happy somebody is reading it...

  • That leads to another reason: I didn't think anyone was reading it. With less than 10 followers not always sure if anyone is clicking social media links.  And I also have to remember that I am doing this as kinda a memory montage for all of us, so i should not care if others are reading.... (but I do)

These are the reasons I have not blogged in awhile...

but I am back!!!
