It’s cold, it’s blustery, and I’m tired of it — which is pretty much par for the middle of January.
We actually haven’t had a crazy amount of snow this winter, which I’m thankful for, but at the moment an Alberta Clipper is blowing around every flake of snow we do have.
How are things in your part of the world? I know some of you are near while others might be halfway across the globe. I hope January is bringing good things your way and 2014 will be bright for you.
It won’t be too many months before spring is on its way for real. Animals and people will be glad!
The real topic on my brain today as the snow swirls around is a question and request for you. Yes, you!
My blog traffic is up, but comments over the past few months are definitely down. Which is fine. I know everyone is busy and many of us read blogs on mobile formats or hurriedly in our few spare minutes.
For the start of the year though, I thought it would be fun to request a role call of sorts. Just say hi (no personal details needed beyond what you wish to share) and tell me if there’s anything you’d like to hear about.
My blog had undergone several shifts in it’s 3+ years, and right now I’m again searching for inspiration. Do you like regular old tales from the farm? Or maybe I should start occasionally posting meals and recipes again?
I’m currently bumping up my running mileage in preparation for a spring marathon, and it’s been several years since I’ve recounted my training workouts in any detail. I finally realized it was kind of boring for me to share that I ran “6.06 miles in 55 minutes and felt good” only to follow it up with comments about “a tight left hamstring that didn’t want to stretch out.”
But, perhaps you would be interested in a weekly running post, and if so I could plan to hold myself accountable for writing it.
Maybe you’re content to follow my current chatter, which means about one post per week about whatever is on my mind when I sit down to write.
In any case, I’d love for you to take a moment to say hi. I really appreciate you stopping by here, and I’d like to hear from you. Calvin and Boo, who decided to stay out of the wind this afternoon, love hearing from you too. They say thanks in advance.
