Oops! Missed it.!

PhotobucketDon't let this photo fool you. It was taken several years ago. I just thought I'd post it to celebrate the fact that my five-year blogaversary was April 16, and I completely forgot it.  I started blogging just a couple of months after my son, Jay, started his.  He kept urging me to start a blog, so I did, thinking I would just stay interested for a little while, a year at the very most. Now, Jay has given up his blog. And, here I am, still, all out of ideas and not wanting to quit.  Not that I haven't thought about giving it up.  But, every time I think I will, I think about all of you, and how much I enjoy your comments and your blogs, and I decide I just don't want to stop blogging.

But, I do need to think of a way to blog more often. And, I don't want this to turn into just  a blog of political rants. It's hard to come up with ideas since I am old and reclusive, and even when I do get out, there's still nothing interesting going on in town.

Anyhoo, I'm going to try to make this blog more interesting, and if not more interesting, at least more varied. So, don't give up on me.  I'll just keep plugging along.  And, thanks to all of you who continue to read and comment.  I look forward to seeing your name in Comments and reading your blogs.

Stay tuned.

We all "re-invent the wheel" to keep going. I have chosen to post less often and learn from all of you. I generally avoid religion or politics as the subject although I may allude to both from time to time.

I love your political rants, probably because I agree with them.

Glad to see your picture. I thought you'd look like that little picture I see on your blog. I like to be able to have a face to match to my blogging friends.

This post says exactly how I've felt about blogging so many times Betty....and I'm still here too. It will be six years in August for me. I think we all keep plugging away at it and love it for the very same reasons you say. I've always enjoyed your wit and wisdom....glad you're going to stick around. Happy 5th Blogaversary Betty... ~Joy

Happy Blogaversary! I LOVE your blog and I love the pic of you. You are a very attractive person.

I blog just to get things off my chest. I've never felt that what I said was all that great but it sure is great to have it out there instead of rattling in my head, lol.

Just keep blogging, we'll always read it and find it great :)
