Over the four years I’ve been writing this blog, many things have happened – amongst others:
- I’ve created a diary of my life in pictures and words which I will have forever, and hopefully my son and future grandchildren will be able to look back at one day.
- I’ve rediscovered the enjoyment of writing which I had as a child, and through the wealth of followers and comments over the years, have had validation that people want to read what I write, and sometimes even enjoy it!
- I’ve made some amazing friends from all sorts of different walks of life, and from many corners of the globe. Some of them I’ve met in real life, most of them I haven’t. Some I know I’ll keep in touch with for years to come. Special people.
I’ve said many times in the last four years that I can’t imagine life without blogging, but at the moment, more and more often, I’m sitting in front of the keyboard wondering what to write about, and feeling it’s more of a chore than a pleasure. Which I don’t want, and I don’t think my readers deserve.
And I don’t want What’s Happening At My House to become one of those blogs where updates are less and less frequent until …. eventually ……. they …….. just ……peter out. Hence the title of this post.
I think maybe the time has come to lay down my virtual pen.
I’m going to think on it for a couple of weeks, and I will be back to let you know one way or another what I decide to do.
But in the meantime, thank you – for reading, for commenting, for being my friend. It’s been a blast.
