Should I Stay, Or Should I Go?

April 4, 2012 07:00 by ehouston

I have been so MIA lately that I have considered walking away from this whole blogging gig.  The thing is, I have lots to share.  It’s time that I don’t have to spare.  Also, It seems as though a lot of my readers have fallen to the wayside over the last year or so.  I guess I’m just boring everyone to death.  This old blog was started as a way to share what’s happening in my life with far away family and friends.  After moving from TN to VA it has really helped fill that gap, or so I thought.  I don’t know what has happened to all my regular commentators, but now, instead of feedback folks are just ranking my postings.  Almost exclusively and the rankings are very low I might add.  While I certainly try to put out content to both educate and amuse, I will never understand why someone would bother to rank something they don’t like.  Like most mothers have always said, if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say it at all.  Am I right?  I just think that is weird.

But, I digress and this was never meant to be a bee-atchfest.  I really do love all my regular readers and any blogger will tell you the comments and emails we get from those of you that enjoy reading along are the fuel to our fire.  I just appreciate that anyone out there (both strangers and those readers I know personally) is interested in my pretty normal existence.  So, despite my self-imposed crazy schedule I have decided not to walk away.  Not at this time anyway.  As I stated above, I have plenty to say and talk about.

Sorry haters, or maybe just dislikers.  I’m sticking around.  Besides, I’m almost finished with the Guest Bath Mini-Remodel!

Don't go!!!! First of all, I don't even know what a "ranking" is or how to do it! Some people are just a-holes and we know that! I LOVE seeing your ideas and projects and keeping up with you and your family!!!

I read your blog almost daily! Don't go Frown
I understand the dilemma though - I abandoned my blog about a year ago. I decided I didn't need any more self-imposed responsibilities. I was supposed to share it with 2 other ladies but they never posted so it just turned into a chore that I didn't enjoy any more.

Thanks to the Jennifers! I read both of your blogs daily (or at least I did until Paper.Craft.Book disappeared! Eh-hem....) and I love getting ideas from you guys as well. I won't be leaving yet. I hope to continue and expand.

Thanks for the comments- it helps keep me motivated!

Glad to hear you'll be sticking around as it lets me see what's going on in your daily life with all your crafts and redos and a glimpse of my sweet grandson helping out. Although I don't know how you keep up with it all. I read your blog every time I get on and then share with my friends and they are always amazed at what you can do. Keep it up even if you have to take a break once in awhile. We all enjoy you!!!

I've struggled with many of the same questions. Although I don't know what "rating" is all about, my main issue seems to be time...time to write, time to read, time to sew, ...
But I've decided not to let my blogging, or lack of it, stress me out. I just do what I can.
And for what its worth, I've always enjoyed your blog posts. So I'm glad you're sticking around. Smile
