We bloggers all do it don’t we?
Start composing a post in our head, that is.
For me it’s while I’m working or running; feeding a new calf or walking the barns; cooking supper or just daydreaming.
I’m sure I can’t count how many eloquent words I’ve strung together in my brain that just never made it to the computer screen so I could hit publish.
And the unwritten ones are always the best, aren’t they?
No grammar rules are broken or even worried about, and the story just flows like melted butter over something delectable.
I have more unwritten ones lately. It’s likely because somewhere in the past year I went from posting almost daily to barely weekly. Seasons of blogging I suppose. I also feel I have less to say; a person can only describe cows and workouts and post mediocre photos so many times.
It seems harder to find the time and motivation too, but I do like my little slice of the Internet. I won’t let it die. It needs to ebb and flow.
I view my stats from time to time (or a lot), and readership in October is WAY up. Thanks all! It’s nice to know the posts that have made it here are being read. Anyone who’s blogged for an extended period knows you have to do it for something within yourself, but it’s also nice to know you’re not speaking into empty space.
I think I had some grand, philosophical mission when I started this stream of thought, but I’ve definitely lost it now.
Instead, I think I’ll go back to my roots. I’ll post a few cow and running updates and leave this open for comments. If you have something you want to hear about give me a shout out. My inbox is always open.
Lately at the farm…
Yup, lots of snow last week. It’s melted now, and we actually just moved these ladies out of their pasture today. I think they relished their first look at winter though.
My running has been lax as we slowly try to work on house projects and moving. Strangely enough, the morning it snowed last week was the only run I managed. I’d made up my mind to go, and whipping wind and flurries weren’t going to stop me!
Our yard looked like this as I finished my few miles, and then later in the day is when I photographed the cattle.
Take care all; stay safe if you’re in the wake of Sandy, and Happy Halloween.
