The Blues

Some times blogging gives me the blues. I have so much to say and so much to offer and at times I feel like there isn't anybody out there reading, listening, commenting. And then I pick myself up and dust myself off and say 'For god's sake woman, get a grip on yourself. Who cares?'. I started this blog to share my ideas, photos, commentary, life and work. It's my little world onto itself. In the beginning I was hoping for just one person to link me. Just one. And then a wonderful blogger Beach Bungalow 8 did! And then another and another and another. How amazing I thought. To be validated like that. So I want to thank each and every one of you who have linked Liberty Post. It means so much to me. Now for some of you bloggers who have hundreds of links, you may think, big deal, a link. But to me, a link is someone who cares. Who shares. Who gets you or at the very least is interested in your voice, your style, your offering. Some times blogging gives me the blues and then it all comes out in the wash like a wonderful, indigo 'thinking of you' card; you get a lovely comment...like the one I got today from Restyled Home. Thank you. By the way, my favorite colour is blue, so everything is going to be O.K..

I read your blog and comment as much as I can! Haven't I been a frequent commenter (well, I try anyways!? One thing I can say is that when people visit me and comment, it triggers my memory to go visit them too! So while I try to have a regular routine of blog visits just for my own enjoyment, if someone else takes the initiative to comment on my blog I will ALWAYS go back and visit them ASAP! I think it is the kind thing to do and I always enjoy my visit. So, if you feel lonely, just come on by and visit! Keep yourself in the loop! I love your blog!
