So, do you like the new look?
I live in a constant state of doubt with this blog. Does anyone other than me actually care about the things I rant about? Why am I spending so much time on this when time is such a rare commodity these days? Sometimes I consider jacking it in and getting a few more early nights instead.
These doubts are even stronger at this time of year. This is when nominations are happening for some of the parent blogging awards. Every year I look at them and every year I have decide not to enter. There has never been a category that I seemed to fit in. There are some amazing blogs out there and I certainly wouldn’t consider myself to be Best Blog or Best Writer material, but the specialist categories have always been for things like food, crafts and fashion. All things I like (especially the food!), but not things I write about.
So why am I still here?
Because, just sometimes, some small but lovely things happen.
Some complete strangers read some things I’ve written and make the effort to send me a tweet, saying they’d enjoyed it and they agree with me.
A friend I’ve not heard from in a while, unasked, tells me she enjoys my blog.
One of the blogging awards gets some new categories.
So here I am with a whole new look and a resolution to continue. Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to read, comment, tweet, share, like etc. etc. over the years. Can I now ask you a favour?
