Guess ya had to be there!

Someone has coined the phrase, "maintaining the collective memory."  I guess that's kind of what I want my blogs to be.  I don't want them to be a money making job or a contest of comparison.  I want to maintain the collective memory for my children and our family...and share with those we love.

Yes, I have been experiencing blogger angst.  Anguish...anxiety.  Should I keep both, should I make one, should I quit entirely!  Should I share this info...or not share...who's reading this?  Why am I doing this?!  

I generally view blogging as least this blog where I post my deeper thoughts.  Yes, I have them...I saw those eyes roll!! But lately, it's felt more like a chore.  And those well meaning people who've asked where the pictures are...have rubbed me wrong.  I've felt nagged.  And, that alone has been a good lesson.  It helped me realize that when I use it with my sweet is likely to achieve opposite results.  Sometimes it's hard to receive missed ya as love ya!

But, here I am...again.  Deciding that I need to make my new technology work for me.  Figuring out remote posting (thanks Dad!)...and trying to continue maintaining the collective memory...because just looking back through my posts is precious!  My babies grow and our family changes...and I am truly a MomE & Loving It...not just naming a blog so it'll promote the thought!  And, here where I'm Blogging Along...I see God's growing me as I take steps of obedience with Him.

So, rather than saying..."guess ya had to be there"....I will try to post more frequently.  Anything should be an improvement, right!?  FYI:  taking pictures of sunsets while driving is dangerous...and a bummer.  The pictures never look as good as the real thing!!

Well I for one read your blog. :-)I enjoy it as one part to my work day. Something I can look forward to, to usually find a nugget of truth, since we are both in similar life stations. I usually walk away having "spotted" something that hits me between the eyes.So I hope you continue because I like getting my daily fix of Bobbi insights. :-) I did miss you while you were breaking. I really appreciate your wisdom and insight. Pictures not always needed. :-) -G
