That was Great!

Thank you so much for your overwhelming responses to my last post. I certainly was not expecting that. So glad though. It helped me and others get all different points of view. I feel bad I missed Leann's goodbye post. It must have been the week my boys started school and I was not on much. Well Leann, I understand and respect your decision, still miss you though. You are a super neat lady, and I really felt a connection out here to you. Weird, but I did!!~ I wish you all the very best.
Melissa's blog ( Keep calm and decorate) was hacked into by spammers and it is back. So I am sooo happy she did not up and leave us!!~ She is a super creative young woman with such a wonderful joyful spirit.

Is blogging addicting? YEP it is?(IMO) Do I feel a sense of addiction? Well I did at first. It has slowed down. I used to have 4 posts at a time in my archives ready to go. Worried that I would not have enough to keep you coming back.  Well now, I post as I go....If I have things to share, wonderful, if I don't I am OK with that too. I do not go and buy things just to buy them.  Blogging should not cost you money. TIME yes, money NO! I have learned to re purpose things a lot better.  I do NOT post everyday.  There was a time early on I was ready to throw in the towel. But I am glad I worked it out.  I realize truly at the end, Blogging is for ME, to release this bottled up energy I have inside. I may have things you love to read and ideas you may love to Copy! COOL, I am happy with that.  Other times, I may bore you to tears.  COOL with that too, as my blog is going to be a book at the end of the year and I am going to give it to my boys to save someday. Lucky kids!  Do I feel jealous at times over other blogs? YEP in the beginning I did. But not anymore. I think I just felt perplexed more than anything. Like how do they get all these people to come to their blogs, how do they get such a following. What do they do, that I do not? I had all those questions and feelings.  NOW, I don't care much at all. I have established out here what I wanted, and I do exactly what I want, with no high expectations. I just be myself!!~ There is no pressure in that at all. So that is the advise I would give any new blogger.  Just be yourself, do what you love. Joining MEME parties is a great way to get your blog out there.  However, on the flip side, I see girls join 5-6 parties on one post, and when I go to comment, they are lucky to have a couple comments. And yes it is disappointing when you join a party week after week and the host never even said ONCE hey thanks! But on the flip side of that, it may bring you  a new visitor or two that just loved what you had to share and will now follow you. So I try to see the positive in it, even if I still think the host is RUDE!  We all know the time it takes  to link up to those parties. Some hosts get over 200 links. I feel at this point they know who are the regulars and they know who are the newbies....go WELCOME a newbie would ya!? You will make their day. It is getting increasingly difficult for me to respond and visit all the blogs I love to.  So I do understand when people do not get to me every time and comment. So please do the same for me:):) My intentions are very very good, just time is a FACTOR in our Lives!

I read every comment word for word and was so touched by all your sincerity, and honesty. I did not answer you all back, as I just can't today:):) Taking the day off from blogging.
Have a wonderful day with your FAMILIES and FRIENDS!!~ XXX000

Yep! I knew whenI joined that I was going to like you because you are REAL and I LIKE REAL! As I was reading the blog I looked to the side and saw that you had 999 followers! Oh...I wish I wish I wish I could have been #1000! Do you think if I deleted myself and re-joined it would work? just wondering~

I am sorry that you lost a blog friend . The friends I have found here are as real in life as are those where I acutally sit and have a cup of coffee and a chat with someone. Friends are connected by heartstrings-not miles.

I feel like you are a wonderful new friend...and you better NOT just disappear---just sayin....;>) Diana

I'll tell you the same thing I have said to a handful of bloggers out there...if I were your neighbor we would the best of friends,! You are a kind person with great integrity and that is so rare anymore in life!
Many hugs dear friend and enjoy a day for just you, no worries in life:)
