Give up on this blog thing?

Perhaps I (Darcy) don't have what it takes to keep up a blog anymore. I probably averaged more than one post per day in my livejournal for 7 years straight or so, but I just don't spend that much time online anymore (a good thing!)

When I'm online now, it's usually to totally relax -- to watch documentaries or browse necklaces on etsy.

I think Facebook ruined blogging for me a little, not because I took my blogging energies to Facebook, but because I resisted using Facebook for so many years, and the principle of the thing -- that we should be creating real community and truly talking with our friends and going outside and experiencing things -- holds true for blogging.

At the same time, I do still love some blogs, when their purpose is in no way trying to be a replacement for face-to-face interactions. But I guess I just don't feel like I have the time in my life right now to live AND to tell about it. Or maybe I do want to tell about it, but in my paper journal. And I want to do a better job of connecting with friends.

One good thing that came out of this (well, two) is that we've started taking more photos (even if I didn't find the time to share them), AND those photos have revealed to us that we have a really great life, filled with love and laughter and food and nature. I sorta suspected our lives were great, but now we have proof.

Maybe (probably) we'll pick this up again sometime.


I'll leave you with some pictures from the last week or so:

Belly rubs at Pigs Peace Sanctuary

Dinner I made us one night

Tuckered out.

The food looks sooooo yummy. What are the breaded things? Panko crumbs on something?

I look forward to your blog! At times I almost don't want to click on the little bookmark I've made myself because then I'll read it and not have another one for a while. Haha.

This is also how I feel about Harry Potter. I still haven't seen the last movie. *weep*

Plus, you can't stop blogging until you've shared wedding details like your subtitle says!!!

Life is a series of choices. When we say yes to one thing it always means were are say no to something else.

You don't need to post on it all the time in order to keep writing on your blog. Once a week or even once a month is totally reasonable. We're busy people! I try to post on the Lost Sound Tapes blog at least once a month (though I'm currently failing that attempt).

I say keep it up! Also I wanna hang out with you and Luna and Lupin more. Damnit.
