- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

I want to remain..me thank you
I'm sitting here having my morning cuppa. While I still do
check in, and paruse around, I'm not participating in the posting part to much
and frankly am not reading alot either. I'm wondering why, what has happened.?
I get more comments annonymous then I do from followers, is anybody reading
anymore..or are we hopping around to get everybody all in, because we have
so much to read, there is no time to write a comment? Really?
I think back to when I first started this, the joy and anticipation of posting, and
getting comments,or followers, meeting new friends...My very first
commentor was Sandy Sandy's Space,Stitches and sometimes Silliness, we still
converse today, it was the crochet which drew us together. (Do stop by and visit Sandy).
I suppose Blogger is the same as any other neighborhood, with the age old problem
of keeping up with Joneses. And whether we even realize it or not we taken up
in the worldwind that is blogger. There is just to much info, to many links and way to much to read, to many bloghops,
too many blogs which group together,when one posts they all do, and you have
multiple postings , it to much clutter.
It is big business now, the little mom & pop blogs being pushed aside for
more advertisers,followers,pinterest,blogger,facebook, google +, and the what have you
conglomerations taking over to have more and more of facetime on the blogs.
So, what do I do? I've always like the simple, and that's where I headed.
I'm going to be going over my blog not to redisgn it, but to re evaluate who it is
that I am choosing to have space at my place,
I've wondered off the path of why
I blog, but have found my way is the more simple way as I've always said, this is what works for me.
It is about the interaction , the connection I must have with someone I choose to follow.
keeping it simple, no bells, no whistles, what is the blog teaching me, how
can I benefit from it in my own life, the blogs I follow must have a connection to me
on some level, your interest must be mine, or I do not follow. Is it real, genuine,
and with an honest approach to help or share, count me in!
Blog Hops, are great but how many can you participate in? Really? Being more selective.
Since Mom & Pop are struggling for their place, then I too must be more selective, because
there is more competition for blog face time...I'm going to make sure
I am in the right place for me..
I wish you all peace as you go your ways...
