Blogging is So Last Year I Suppose

We had our annual Hunnicutt Thanksgiving in Durham this past weekend. We have done this for a number of years so that we can each have our own Thanksgiving at home or be surrounded by the loving in-laws Norman Rockwell style when the actual day arrives.

As usual my sister and I were in the kitchen catching up on the blogs we read. Many blogs we have in common, Ali, Zig, Teresa, Terri, Terry, and then there are many I read that she doesn't and many she reads that don't interest me.

One common thread we noticed is our regular bloggers who's lives we have watched from the outside, watched their children be born, leave home, or struggle in this economy have gradually stopped their daily posts and are down to a trickle. Some just throw in the towel.

I guess blogging is so last year.

My blog still continues to lay an egg almost daily that has to be deposited somewhere. So for now at least I'll be here until the egg laying dries up.

I hope you never stop. I do enjoy blogs. I guess I should do one myself but I am too shy about putting stuff out there. I am glad others aren't like me. I feel I know the people whose blogs I read so well but they don't know me at all except through you.

Oh you know I have too much stuff to say to stop blogging.

AGH!!! That's me! Oh, I have plenty to say, alright, I just can't get a moment to sit down and get my thoughts all out before being interrupted!! I will make an effort to sit down today and get caught up! BTW...what's up with your chickens? No fresh eggs???

Well you can't stop now...I just got here and leaving would be just plain rude.

Maybe somewhere down the road I might get tired of blogging, but right now, it's like getting hooked on a soap or a primetime series like Lost that you have to keep coming back to see what is happening. I have to know what is going on with my peeps.

So keep up the good stuff and I'll hang around lurking if not commenting.

I'm not stopping anytime soon. I might sometimes go days without saying anything, but I'll always have something to say.

I have noticed this too - I'll be here for a while yet. Soon it will be just the oldies left :-)

I know I keep saying this, but don't give up on me! I just keep waiting for life to slow down, so I have time, and it just never does.
I suppose once I realize that this IS my life now, I'll smarten my ass up and figure out how to fit blogging in :)
I refuse to be a bloggy statistic - I shall return!!!!

eh, it's still cool to blog - ;) - And keep laying those blog eggs - I'll still be reading (and as for following people's lives, there is still Facebook! :) - so as for me and my blog, it's not like i'll be GONE GONE - )
