This has been a bit of a confused time for me regarding reading blogs. A fair number of bloggers have either changed their systems, or rather their blogging programme has insisted upon a different form for signing in to leave comments. I end up totally confused, trying to leave comments and going round in circles because I’ve forgotten passwords – maybe I never had a google mail account in the first place. So I read a blog, am interested, want to comment and then fail at the post. Sorry to be so absent from the commenting blogosphere. I can only hope it resolves itself soon.
The other thing I am noticing is that some bloggers, and I count myself as one of them, are posting less frequently. Have we said all we wanted to say? Is it the fact that the days are longer and the weather has been more clement than usual? Or are we getting lazy? It could be that the advent of facebook and twitter has drawn some bloggers into a new type of mini-blogging, so that there is less time for a reasoned and thought-out post. Twitter pops up all the time demanding a response. This isn’t my excuse, I reckon my life as a retiree is not interesting enough for constant bulletins.
I admire those people who manage to juggle it all. And there are some blogs I log into, pleased to read the thought of the day and to be granted the privilege of entering into another’s life and feelings. Recently I seem to have had too many rants in my head, perhaps it would help to put them down in print. That, however, is for another day.
Let me know what you think.
