To Blog or Not to Blog????

I started this blog in 2008 to keep a journal of sorts about our life. I had been reading several blogs and thought one of my own would be great fun! I started out slowly with short posts. I sometimes tried to be creative.....maybe not always very successfully. I've shared lots of family activities, recipes, crafts, and sewing projects.

My blogging has dwindled a lot lately for several reasons. 1. I don't enjoy blogging as much on my iPad, and I sometimes even have trouble and give up! I used to blog on my school laptop, but I don't bring that home as much anymore, and the desktop is too slow and inconvenient. 2. I'm not sure who, or IF anyone is really reading it besides me.

3. The lack of comments is discouraging. While I think my family reads it, it is hard to tell because they rarely comment on the blog. They may often say something in person, but not on the blog. The person that comments the most isn't a family member! (Thanks, Laurie!).

So, I have to decide if I should continue with my blog, and if so I feel like I need to make an effort to blog more often.

Thoughts? (Family?)

You're welcome Kim, I myself would hate to see you stop, though I've been questioning the same things myself. I though I'd have alot more family members coming to visit, especially my son and his family! I've yet to see a single comment. My sisters comment, but with such a large family I really thought this was a way to stay connected. What keeps me going is all the blog friends that I've made, that have taken me outside my little circle. You being one of them. I'll be so interested to see what response you get.
Bless You,

I love your blog and read it all the time. I don't always comment because usually what I add is stupid. I would hate to see you quit it. It is kind of a Graham family blog because we always know what it going on if we check in.
Love Ya lots!

I enjoy your blog also. I have shown friends and co-workers the things you do with crafts or pictures. I don't always comment but try to if I have the time. I would hate to see you stop doing it.

Also, I have tried to blog myself on the Graham Canyon but the administrator won't let me.

The Roos' check your blog on our iPods, but it doesn't allow us to comment. So, today we turned on the old computer and logged on to tell you to keep it up. As you can see, we don't blog as much either.

I usually check your blog from my phone and commenting from it can be a pain but I am trying to do better! We enjoy your blog!
