This couldn’t have come at a better time!
As you can tell from the date of my previous post, I haven’t been posting very often. We’ve had such an awful Spring, Summer AND Autumn that Mo and I have been stuck indoors most of the time. We haven’t even been able to sit in our garden, except for a few days in early April. It not only doesn’t create much blog material, but doing nothing, makes you want to do more ‘doing nothing’, until you end up doing a lot of doing nothing. I’ve been popping by some of my favourite blogs, reading and commenting still, but that’s as far as it goes.
With the latest news that Feedburner is to be closed down by Google, I thought that was the last straw. I can do without another major blog problem, so was seriously contemplating giving up blogging…… until today.
I was stunned to open an email that told me I was a winner!
The lovely Linda (not the cat, though she is definitely lovely) of From Roses to Ranibows had a giveaway, of an Amazon Gift Card, in celebration of her three years of blogging and my name got pulled out. I never win anything and it made me feel guilty.
Guilty because I was thinking of quitting.
Guilty because of some lovely comments I’ve had recently from people who read my blog.
Guilty because I had let the bad weather affect my life too much.
I will do my best to keep this blog updated as often as possible, with funny (or otherwise) posts. The Feedburner thing? I expect there will be a simple way around it when the time comes.
So, thank you Linda!
