The Forgotten

My blog sits in the corner like a shy wallflower at the school dance.  Eyes downcast, crestfallen and lonely, longing for some attention. Will someone take her hand and lead her on the dancefloor?

I can't believe it's been six months since I've blogged.  That time has gone awfully fast really, with no real reason for not writing other than the desire to share has evaded me somewhat. It's been so long that the J button is missing on my laptop keyboard and I couldn't remember my blogger password.

And I've missed it, I really have.  I've missed reading other blogs as well because if I'm not writing I'm not reading, which is slightly unfair on my behalf.

But I'm back and hoping to write with some kind of regularity and avoid having my blog covered in dust as it sits now.

I've tried to write a few times, and during these false starts I wondered if anyone would even miss me?

I thought about that for a nanosecond before reassuring myself that I write for me. I always have and will continue to do so even when the sweet temptation of monetisation rears its head.

So what am I all about, really? I've been trying to figure out which direction I want my blog to take. The possibilities are endless.

I could take the humour approach, which could be fitting as I wrote a post once that wasn't meant to be funny, but one wag offered "I didn't know you were a humour blogger". I've been told I have a dry wit, just look at these crackers:-

Icecream For Dinner.
Wifey FAQ.
Blame The Washing Machine.
Take Me To Bunnings To Buy A.

If that doesn't work, I could always follow the home/styling/interior design/house/decorating/too many cushions road, which I've also done in the past.  Because I'm now working in this industry, I have a passion for too many cushions that usually end up on the floor, but this could be a good path to follow? Here's a sample:-

House Update - Floors.
Hidden Treasures.
Inspiration.
Dream Shopping.

I could even write about my age and get slightly naked on the internet.  Oh wait, I've already done that:-

I Heart My Body.
Who Am I.
Age.

I might just write about all of the above, along with my life living on our farm, my kids, my animals, my daily grind, what I do, what I like and what I see. Not much of a change really, but I'm so pumped to be back to it!

What would you like to see?  Let me have it!

Haha, I like your sense of humour :) Much like yourself, my blog (and blog reading) has been sorely neglected. Life just runs away with us I feel, but I know that I do miss blogging & it's nice to start up gradually again, as it appears many bloggers are in the same boat. Good to see you back in any case :)

Mix it up, give us a bit of everything.
I scrolled through my blog list yesterday, thinking, this one hasn't written in a while, that one hasn't written in a year, oh so-and-so has disappeared altogether, so you're not alone there.

Love a mix of everything really and most of all your life on the farm!! :)

Wonderful to see you back again and as far as what will you write about....just yourself and anything that is happening at any time that you feel people will want you to share.
All your posts in the past have been so interesting so 'play it by ear'.
Hope you and the family are keeping well.
I'm sorry you've missed mum's book, sections of which I've been posting daily for some weeks. It came to an end this weekend.
I really am chuffed to see you back again. xx

Welcome back! Mine was on the shelf for a while there too ... personal stuff and life got in the way, and I lost my mojo. I'm back, and I'm a bit like you, I blog about everything. I always like something that makes me laugh or smile, but really, anything that I can relate to grabs me every time. x

I love all of your blog posts. I don't like niche blogs that just write about one topic, I like those that show me the whole life of a whole person. And as long as it makes you happy, keep writing. And I will keep reading.
