You may or may not have noticed that I blog daily. Today... well, yes I'm blogging but there isn't much happening. It's snowy outside (I have no intention of venturing out - that wind is pretty punishing) and we're staying home as we have a house viewing in a couple of hours. Yes, I've been busy tidying and hiding things. And said wind has blown the For Sale sign down so I hope our viewers find us.
Today it's just about keeping warm and making soup from what's left in the cupboards (told you we were staying home). 'Making do' appeals to my Housewife, 49 sensibilities as you know.
Jay has suggested on more than one occasion that I consider a day or two off from blogging each week. At first I thought, 'But what if people stop visiting? They might get bored and stop writing their lovely comments, or take them elsewhere.' This is down to my being a rookie, I'm sure. Beginner's anxiety or something like that.
I don't always write about what's happened in 'real time' on any given day. So on an uneventful one like today I might choose a topic (my head's always full to brimming with them, as is my blog notebook) and plunder my photo archives (taking decent quality images indoors during the winter months can be a challenge).
But then there's posting for posting's sake. A duty-bound post which says nothing in particular but lets you hit 'publish' at the end of it and you can tick another thing off your to-do list for the day. I don't want to do that. I love writing my posts and want it to stay that way. I want to be happy with what I share with you.
So... I won't be publishing a new post seven days a week. I'll take a day or two off each week for a bit of inspiration-finding and idea-forming. I'm sure, judging from the nice people who do stop by and comment, that I didn't need to explain this little development at all. But there you go.
The top photo is from my archives - I don't often use black and white for Mitenska. Interestingly, it's also one I used in my profile pictures when online dating. Jay liked it...
