I Have Readers?

I guess I have been feeling less and less like blogging, because I didn't think anyone was actually reading my blog. Well, my lovely family put me in place last night. They thoroughly ripped on me until I admitted to being a blogging failure. I mean, only thirty some posts last year?
I guess the main point that encouraged me was when my sister-in-law said "you aren't doing this for others anyhow, right? Aren't you writing this for you?" You know what? That is definitely how it started. It was my online scrapbook of sorts, sharing my story with the world, or anyone who was interested anyhow. I slowly forgot that, and as people stopped leaving comments, I stopped writing. Well, that is over. I am going to write, with readers or without readers. So all of you readers who read, but don't comment, that is okay. Thank you for sharing in our little journey in this planet.
Now, because I HATE writing without having some sort of photograph, I am leaving you with this. I find this picture extremely ironic. I took it for a Christmas card this year. I find it funny because this has been the warmest December (and January now) that I EVER remember. This was the only significant snow we got (so far). So, kinda funny that this was the picture I sent out. Actually, I had a complete brain freeze and ordered only 25% of the cards I needed, so most people didn't get this card anyhow.
May this New Year bring you joy!

I am glad you are going to keep writing. I, for one, love reading your blog but am often to lazy to comment. I tend to live vicariously through you sometimes, since you seem to have a life that is so filled with joy and wonderful family and friends. I envy that a lot. I think I also learn from you because you ave your priorities straight. I think you focus on God and love and kindness and joy instead of material things. I wish i could be more like you... So please keep writing so I can continue to learn from you. Love and hugs - Karen

I read!!! I just don't comment much. I know what you mean, it feels funny to write when you think nobody is reading! But we're here :)

LeAnna said...

Yes, you do have readers! I find myself with more time to read than comment these days. We all go through seasons of blogging, that's for sure. You have to write for you, and no one else, that's what I've been learning, too. So glad to see you keep it up!

Don't know which sister-in-law did that... but she's good! :-) I read and don't post every time I read... and I'll cut you some slack! Remember it's was an amazingly busy year!? Love you and am thankful for you and your blogging heart and your beautiful family.

Aw, Tamara, we are all reading! Keep it up. And yes, your card was very ironic. So funny.

Tamara said...

You guys are the greatest! Thank you for your encouragement. It really means a lot!

Love checkin' in on your blog. I can totally understand not writing often but I love it when you do b/c well, we pretty much never get to catch up these day! :) Thanks for writing when you can.

Tamara, I love you. It's kinda strange to figure out stuff like that about ourselves. Seeing your family and reading your words never fails to put me there, in your living room, with someone who will always be one of the dearest people in the world to me. And I also ordered about one-fifth of the cards I needed. Why o why do we do these things? xoxo
