Staging a Comeback

I have not written a blog post since June 2018. I really wondered if I wanted to continue with the blog. Many bloggers have moved to Facebook or Instagram. I hate Facebook, I considered Instagram. I miss writing. I miss connecting with readers through their comments. So I’m thinking about reviving the blog. Will I have any readers or have you all moved on to other social media platforms? I love to share quilt related projects, books I’m reading, wandering and exploring or Longwood Gardens rambles. I’m always very contemplative at the start of a new year. What will the next 12 months be like? So please tell me. Do you still enjoy reading blogs? Should I continue my blog in 2019?

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope there will be good health, meaningful work and satisfying relaxation, bountiful days of enjoying family and friends and some amazing surprises to highlight your journey this year.

  30. Juanita McCaffrey says:

    I’d say the yeses have spoken, and I agree

  31. Terry,
    I too despise Facebook! I was caught in that last debacle of stolen information—mine–why–I only wrote relatives to keep in touch–but indeed they had been taken. Facebook was so insistent that I return & once put me back themselves. So unnecessary & off-putting.

    So yes, continue “blogging” & I too enjoy your walks, hikes, & Beautiful Longwood. Thank you ever so much for your generosity.

    Happy New Year.
