I am a follower of abandoned blogs. A lot of them. Except, being abandoned, there’s nothing to follow.
I’m also a writer of an abandoned blog. Or should that be an ex-writer? Except I’m writing this post. Maybe this blog isn’t abandoned after all. Perhaps there is still something to follow.
I do still have some followers here. They haven’t abandoned my abandoned blog. Not yet. I guess they might. It’s been a long time since I last wrote a post. Why?
I got a bit discouraged with this blog. One day, without intending to, I caught sight of the number of subscribers this blog has. Oh my! That number had halved since the last time I looked. My readers had disappeared. I was discouraged. I decided to disappear too.
It’s hard finding out many readers are no longer interested in reading my posts. I imagine everyone reaching for their mice (or is that mouses?) and then clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button. And I feel sad. Oh well. It’s all part of this blogging life. Things change. And maybe it was time to move on anyway.
I moved onto my Stories of an Unschooling Family blog. Do I still have subscribers there? I don’t really know. I’ve learnt my lesson. It’s not always good to check stats. Sometimes it’s better to just write and not worry about the facts and figures. Kind friends stop by and we enjoy some great conversations and that’s good. That’s all that really matters.
People who want to know more about unschooling read the posts on my other blog. But I also seem to have readers who don’t even homeschool, let alone unschool. This surprises me. I guess that’s because unschooling is about life. Life is interesting.
Are my stories interesting? Are they worth reading? I don’t know. But feel welcome to hop over and find out.
Sometimes I just want to write, regardless of anything. That's what I felt like doing today. I wonder if you felt like reading. If you did...
You can still find me on my Sue Elvis Writes Facebook page. I tried to abandon that page too but for some reason I keep posting there. I guess it just doesn't want to be abandoned!
