Earlier this week I texted Laura to make sure her family was safe from the devastating tornadoes that swept through the Dallas area. On her reply, letting me know that all were safe she asked if anything was new, since I haven’t been blogging. “Nope, nothing new. Probably why I haven’t blogged” I replied, adding, “I’m feeling a bit ‘over blogging’ although I still spend way too much time on the internet.”
My mother has even commented, “you must spend all your time on Facebook, now.” Well, to be fair there is also Pinterest and I have more blogs than ever in my Google Reader. I spend way more time reading about other people than I ever did when I was writing more. I think they’re way more interesting than me.
As far as my mother and Facebook, I still can’t convince her to get an account. I keep telling her it only has to be what she wants it to be, and then she won’t have to pester my sisters to log in so she can see pictures that I post.
As for this blog, just the other week I was thinking about taking my sight down as I don’t like “things just hanging out there, unfinished” so to speak. However, I read the directions including “suggestions for a better option than deleting” and realized that maybe I don’t want all my content to go. As Matt said, “maybe you’ll want to pick it up again, someday.” (I’m thinking with some major reorganization.) A better solution from WordPress would be to make this site “private” and then I eliminate my feelings of “something out there incomplete.” But then again, isn’t that the point of a blog is that it’s never complete, always evolving, and should I really deny those approximately 30 people that visit my site each day, most of them looking for information about Monument Valley or Sole Fish?
So my answer is to do nothing. Here my blog will rest as it is, for now at least.
