Livin' Part of Life

Today I'm using a blue-tooth keyboard for my iPad mini for the very first time. I tend not to blog when I'm away from my desktop, which can limit me certain times of year. A friend let me borrow the keyboard she never uses, so we'll see if I like it.

So far so good!!!

I keep thinking I should say the words  "sorry I've been a bad blogger" cause that's what everyone else says when they go for long stretches without posts. But my regret about blogging has nothing to do with my blog friends. If it did, the correct phrase would be "sorry I've not been an available friend."

Which there is some of that.

But mostly my blog regrets are to myself. I've had these epic life moments and failed to record them for memory's sake. How is that a thing? Guilt for being too busy with life to record life. Shouldn't I be happy to have made those memories?

Maybe this means I should vow when life slows down to blog them any way - even if its months after the events happen. I have pictures to jog my memory. And maybe just beginning the writing will help. If not, I suppose it wasn't much to retain any way.

Seriously, times up? That's all you get from me?

I'm linking up with Jaime - let me know if you do so I can read yours! I've definitely been a bad blog reader these days. I'd love to be lazy yet still keep up with how things are going with you.


  1. I, too, feel like a bad blogger at times when I don't post something for a few days and every once in awhile for over a week. I hope you do get the chance to sit down and blog about the life events whether they are past or not.

  2. Yes - you should blog them anyway. I'm glad I have some things written down so I don't forget!

  3. I think you should blog them anyway. It's like reliving those fun events!

  4. I think this line is brilliant: "sorry I've not been an available friend." I should use THAT. I agree, it isn't about being a bad blogger or apologizing for that. No guilt there! Can't wait to read more, though, of what memories & writing shakes out.

  5. I can totally relate. I still have two posts that I haven't completed about India last December. And I leave for India again in 55 days. How's that for a blogging fail. In my defense, there are two pictures I was hoping to use in one of the posts. They're from Nicole's camera, and it's like pulling teeth to get them! :/

  6. I have a blog post about a show I saw in August. I attended a charity event with a good friend, and I just haven't had time to pull the videos and post them.

    It's ok to be busy with IRL friends. And it's ok to jot them down months later on the blog. Promise we won't lecture you too much. ;)
