Just Keep Writing

Just keep writing, just keep writing...

It's been more than seven years since I started keeping a blog. That a lot of writing. I've made a lot of friends in Blogland and have even met a few in person, but lately blogging has been much quieter. There has been somewhat of a lull in the excitement as old friends and family members give up their Blogdoms and pursue other interests or come under the belief that computer friends are "virtual" and give them up for something more "real". My commenting friends have dwindled, yet here I stay, writing, writing... and most if it probably utter nonsense. In my state of recent muddled-ness, I have not done much commenting myself, which doesn't do much for generating comments here.

My blog has been rather haphazard of late. It doesn't have a theme or central interest, just random thoughts, bits and pieces of my days, and here and there a bit of family history. Perhaps it's gotten boring and dull (or perhaps it always has been...) and yet I continue to tap the keyboard and post photos. It's compulsive. :)

I am overtired and should be crawling into bed rather than sit and type, but I rather like to imagine I have some company in the great adventure, so sometime tomorrow morning I will return to Blogland and check to see if anyone has decided to join me. I'll have my cup of coffee, whether I want it or not (sometimes I don't, but I'm afraid of the ensuing headache... ), and maybe a bit of breakfast. Or maybe I'll take my coffee out on the back porch and enjoy these fleeting summer mornings while they last. Yeah, maybe I'll do that.

PS. Yes, I like feeding the birds too.

  1. Martha - I check daily to see if you have posted a blog and am disappointed on those days you haven't. I enjoy hearing about your life, seeing your photos, and seeing how the Lord is working things out in your life. The blogging world is new to me and I don't comment like I should - Facebook is so much easier for me to comment and like on. Praying that you continue to share your heart with those of us who are reading. In Him - Brenda

    1. Brenda, it is good to know there are friends checking even if they don't leave any comments. There are times, however, when I wonder where everyone went, and then I remember they're all on Facebook. :)

  3. I come by on occasion and catch up on all of your posts. I also comment on old ones, which means that you probably don't read my comments.

    Sorry!

    1. But I do read comments on old posts. They show up in my email and I always come back here to read them. I even comment, but unless you check back you wouldn't know. :)

  4. I know that I'm definitely in the "virtual" friend realm, but I really enjoy reading your blog. You have such a whimsical way of writing that I really enjoy.
    Plus, I know in Christ our relationship is far more than "virtual", as we will be together for eternity singing His praises. So I choose to see it as an investment in the future.

    1. Erin, I am amazed at the friends I've made through blogging. To think that I have friends across the US and all the way to Australia is incredibly amazing.And to know so many are related through Christ is even better!
      Thank you for reading my incredibly random hodgepodge of a blog.
