It's been one year and 6 days since the last post of this blog, although anyone reading the last post... 'well it is nearly Christmas' could be forgiven for thinking this just follows on from there, but the last post was dated the 3rd of December 2016, and today it's the 6th of January 2018.
Shortly after the last post my mother was taken ill and I was with her until she died on December 30th.
It was the ending of shall we say, not exactly a good year.
February started with my broken leg The last days of February in March our dog died, in April I was diagnosed with skin cancer, in June our God daughter's fiancé was killed, then her father, our friend, was diagnosed with cancer, and December brought my mother's death which brought responsibilities... the funeral wasn't until February... the house sale and dealing with solicitors dragged on until September.
Blogging seemed irrelevant... instagram on the other hand, with it's quick easy, post a photo and a couple of words style seemed to suit the mood of 2017 and it's easier for me, perhaps for a lot of other bloggers as well, as several blogs I'd read have stopped.
But somebody sent a message to an old post and out of interest I arrived back here today, just to have a look and was surprised to find people have been continually visiting this site. I'd known there were readers of my drivel out there (even though they didn't comment) as views came from all over the world, but having stopped posting for over a year I thought they'd have given up by now...
Is blogging dead?
