700th post

Completely unrelated bee picture

Blogger tells me that this is my 700th post and I'm not going to argue with them nor am I going to check to see if their calculations are accurate. It's a large number but a prolific blogger I am not. Often I compose posts in my head but they never make it to the point of publishing for whatever reason. Probably there are some or even many of the 699 past posts that shouldn't have either.

And another one

The big round number did make me contemplative though. Why do I blog? Should I keep blogging? What direction should the blog take? Just like a mid-life crisis only more trivial and not like it at all.

Well I can't tell you why I blog exactly but I can guess. Probably the same reason I like letter-writing. I get to ramble on without interruption about whatever I like (within reason). You also get to see the better side of me. The industrious me who I would like to be more often than I actually am. The nicer me.

Should I keep blogging? Probably not. I should spend less time on the computer. But you know what? I'm going to keep at it anyway. I like writing and that counts for a lot. Moreover I like the connection with all of you out there. I have made some wonderful friends here.

What direction will the blog take? Who knows? I don't. More of the same and then some. I have so many notions and hare-brained ideas in my head at any given time. It's not all gardening and cooking and craft and so on.

Well, that's it for today. I have a trip to town to make.

I get moments like that, too, but I keep on going, even though the emphasis of my blog changes as the months and years go by, it's great to look back on. Keep going, Tracy. x x

I'm so glad you intend to keep on with your blog. I love reading about your life at Sunny Corner Farm. The beauty of your blog is that it is yours.......to make it what you want it to be and to reflect your life at the time you write each post.
