I cannot even believe that it is October already. Where does time go?
The other night on a rare Twitter-a-thon I made the comment about how it's funny that we bloggers like to talk about being part of the community, but that in the almost month I haven't blogged not one person had emailed to see what was up. I honestly wasn't pointing fingers, I just found it interesting. Now I do have to say that I have had a few people tweet me to see what was happening and some of my readers who are my facebook friends also check in there, but that is about it.
After sending the tweet I had quite a few people reply back asking me if everything was okay, how I was doing, and a few even mentioned they did miss my posts ((remind me to send out their checks!!)). Then I had a couple people admit the same thing happened to them...they went m.i.a. and nobody even seemed to notice.
Then it hit me. Call me the black kettle cause here I was musing why people hadn't emailed me to see what was up when I had completely ignored some of my favorite bloggers when they had disappeared. Geez. Then there is the fact that while I haven't been blogging, I also haven't been visiting any of my favorite blogs either. I didn't have a clue what was happening in any of my "friends" lives.
The more I kept thinking about my blogging community, including the bloggers I've met IRL and the ones I only know through their posts, the more I realized that I'm starting to miss it all. I miss checking in on everybody, reading what everybody is up to, and sharing what is happening in my part of the blogosphere. Blogging is something that I do for me and I miss my "me" time.
So what I'm trying to say between the paragraphs of rambling words is...
and boy does it feel good to be back with my box of chocolates!!!
