a letter to my readers

Dear friends,

I have been absent for a while, both from blogging myself as well as from reading your blogs and I must say that I miss it! I’m sorry if you felt or feel that I have abandoned you. I haven’t. I just couldn’t bring myself to get in touch.

There is no reasonable explanation for why this happened – maybe it just suddenly appeared too much. Or maybe I needed a bit of a time-out. I think the problem is mainly that if I follow someone, I want to read all their stuff and not miss anything, which sometimes means that unread posts pop up faster than I can keep up. Maybe I need to learn to be okay with not reading every single post.

Another problem seems to be that I feel like I have nothing to say. Now, some people might argue that I never have, but I hope that sometimes I have made you guys laugh or think or introduced you to a new song or just contributed to your pleasure and entertainment in some way. I’d really like to go on doing that, but I feel like I’m unorganized in my own mind. I want to straighten things out and make them clearer to myself.

For now, all I want to say is that I miss you – the banter, the jokes, the encouragement, the support, the community.

See you soon!

Hugs to all, wordsurfer

  1. I know how you feel! I was absent from my blog, as well, for the past few weeks. This weekend was my time to try to catch back up. But I hear you – there are so many blogs to read! You save one to read later and then all of a sudden your list of posts to read has grown so long it would take you days to catch back up.

    I think we all need to take a break from time to time and just relax. We also need to cut ourselves a bit more slack the rest of the time. It’s okay to skim/miss a blog post every now and again. It’s not the end of the world, even though it might feel like it. πŸ™‚


  2. I completely understand! I just had a break from the blog myself. Hope to see you soon.

  3. *hugs* I hope you come back soon! Also, for what it’s worth, you have made me laugh, think and introduced me to new songs. πŸ™‚

    Hugs to you sweetie! We all need some time for our heads to quiet down a bit.

  5. Down time is at times necessary. Glad to hear all is okay, and looking forward to more of your wonderful posts! πŸ™‚

    Hugs! I somehow written the same thing in my April 1st blog post. Even though it ended up as April Fool’s Day prank, it is still true. I know that it is sad to feel inadequate to your readers, but hey, we must strive harder.

    I missed you and your posts!

    • Thank you for saying that. And don’t feel inadequate – you blog is charming and funny and full of your personality – that’s not something that’s easy to achieve and I think that’s why you have so many devoted readers! πŸ™‚

  7. We all know what you mean. As you know, I was off line for a few months. In this time, many things happened and being disconnected made it easier to sort things out. We all need it that break. Besides, we will be here when you are ready to come back.
    Take your time.
    hugs and kisses! πŸ˜€
