where have all the bloggers gone

Puppies ready to go
I know I am bad at updating my blog sometimes, but I do get around to it in time... I love posting about the puppies and the happenings around here, things I like to make and most of all I love showing off the beautiful quilts I make for The World of Charity Group. I love showing off the counted cross stitch I make and the ones the WOCS ladies send here, so much work and love go into those stitches...  But really, am I one of a dying breed?  So many of the blogs I use to read now lay dormant, the writers haven't posted in months... Even our daughters have stopped posting their daily events and photos... Oh how I miss those posts, I loved reading about the escapades of the kids and grand kids, seeing a glimpse into their world.. But now the blogs are quiet, no more photos or posts fill my mailbox.. because they seem to be hooked on Facebook...  Which is OK now and then I guess... but really a photo, a few words and that is it... where is the story, where are all the photos that helped bring the story to life... GONE...  I want to see the projects the family are doing, I want to see the kids as they head out to a dance, or even if it is just the daily activities around the house. I loved reading Jenny's blog as she had a way adding humor into her writing that makes me smile.  Seems like the only people that are writing on their blog now days are the ones who will share instructions or tutorials for a craft... and there are the ones who host contests to bring more readers to their site... There are also those Moms that have made a job of blogging about products, giving reviews and hosting giveaways, what a great way to get items for their families, but those too have started to disappear.  I guess I don't care if my blog is popular, or read by friends and family, I write it for me, a way to tell my story, my life, my love of making things, a way of documenting my charity work. Maybe one day one of the grand kids will take the time to read about their Nana and learn more about her.. I only wish blogging was around when my grandma was alive, I would have loved to learn more about her..

I think it's summer time blues. I know I read a few blogs...and post to some, but not bad!

But, your dogs are soooo cute!

I so love this blog post. I can completely relate to what you are discussing here. A different generation I come from, as I am in my early twenties, but it appears that we share a kindred spirit among the desire that we wish people blogged more; took time to share their stories; and to be honest, spent less time on Facebook :). I so often find in my generation just a lack of desire to learn, to read... and reading is so precious to me. Since I was a child, I have read the classics and relished in wisdom from my elders. I am so glad that I found your blog, and that I can enjoy your story! :)
