I've been absent, as several of you have reminded me, for far too long.
I have become a victim. Of my own elevated expectations.
"I'll blog when I get the rest of the materials together for this discussion"
"As soon as I get those pictures downloaded from the camera, I'll post"
"No one wants to read the mundane minutiae of my life!"
"They'll understand - I've been busy"
"I hate to post an incomplete topic!"
"No post is better than an unprepared one"
And so on...
When the fact is I write at least 2 posts in my head every day!
But to face reality: I'm not a heavy picture-taker. It's an effort beyond my already barely-making it patience and energy to photograph everything I would like to post. I have lots of scattered ideas about history, textiles, and the like that I dream of posting as complete topics, but I never have the time to gather materials, cite references, and organize. It could easily be a 2-6 hour endeavor just to make a post! I had every intention of posting M-W-F when I started this blog.
So what do you think about random, not-too-well-organized posts? Too eclectic? Too unreadable? Too...what?
After all - I probably should have named this blog "The Storehouse of Useless Information" - a moniker I've had (and my mother before me) as long as I can remember. (And yes, we're great at Trivial Pursuit! Used to have family competitions, 3 generations/side until my grandparents (and Pop) passed.)
I have so much I want to say! SO many things to write! Can I do it one blog-page at a time? Or should I be writing small books every time I post?
