Where Did all of the Bloggers Go?

I was cleaning up my blog email today when I realized that I needed to go into WordPress and change some things. Somehow when I recently followed a new blog the “send to email” button was on. Some people have an awful lot to say and my email was flooded. I go to my reader tab and that’s where I read the posts, not in my email. I feel it would increase my chances of missing an actual email so I went to fix the problem. I was scrolling down the list of blogs that I follow and it makes me a little sad. So many have just stopped writing.

I remember when Tamara at https://ordinaryfashionista.wordpress.com/  had her baby, I was so excited for her and then poof….she is gone. I know she has her hands full with her little girl who is probably running all over the place by now. I even followed her sisters blog in hopes that I might get a glimmer of news.

I used to love the organizing tips that I would get from Kristin over at https://organizationalspecialists.wordpress.com/  Every once in a while she will still post something clever but the posts are few and far between.

I always liked https://thstrawberryrose.wordpress.com/ blog as well. Last I heard she was moving into her new homestead with pictures to follow. Pictures never followed.

This blog was one of the first that I followed along with over 9,000 people. I always liked her stories and wonder what she is up to these days.

Jean over at https://beatsthealternative.me/ still posts occasionally. I always get so excited. It makes me feel almost stalker-ish.  Over the years I feel like I know her. I like the stories about her family, the dogs and whenever she refers to Bubba.  She truly has a gift with words. I have been following her since I started using WordPress.

Tim over at https://frontrangescribbles.wordpress.com/2016/01/26/elvis-has-left-the-building/ left the blog world to follow his passion. So I don’t read his words, I listen to them. I did enjoy reading his blog but I listen to him once a week so I know what he is up to, at least on Sunday nights.

I never expected to become attached to people when I started this blogging journey but it happened. It’s like a cyber family in a way.  I’m sure I am not the only one who feels this way. Life happens, I get it. I do miss the stories…..

I did expect to get all reminiscent tonight, I just wanted to cut down on the emails.

Today I stopped to see the drawing of my next tattoo. I am so excited, he did such a good job. I ended up sticking with the dragonfly that I found on Pinterest, with the addition of the Reiki symbols.

My person on the inside at the ReStore sent me a picture of this chair that came in today.

While it is a unique piece, it would be very costly to reupholster and I have no where to put it. The odors coming off of this thing were toxic….holy moly! I did leave with this canister that is in excellent condition. I’m not 100% sure what I will store in it but I am leaning towards cleaning rags. I have enough blue surgical towels to fill it up.

That was my day today. Oh and the milk in my coffee didn’t taste so hot so either I learn to drink coffee without cream or I give up coffee all together……Zia

About dragonflyzia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

    If you move to self hosting you lose all your readers, they don’t really put you in the reader anymore. That happened to me and I missed you all too much so I’m back!

  2. Thank you for the kind words about my blog. It was an experiment that I realized I was not very good at and I felt I needed to spend the extra energy on the show. A huge thanks for reading and also for listening. Individuals such as yourself make it all worthwhile doing. Someday I hope to repay your kindness
