I was talking to someone recently about why I blog. First and foremost, I like writing and I enjoy recording our adventures here in Provençe. It’s a bit like keeping a diary, but different at the same time. The fact is, I was rubbish at keeping diaries, yet somehow I have managed to blog consistently for two years now. So why is it that I can manage to blog regularly, when my diaries always came to an abrupt halt some time around the end of January?
I think the answer is feedback. Likes and comments, both here and on my Facebook Page. I LOVE getting feedback and I reckon it’s what keeps me coming back here and typing up whatever nonsense is going on in my life. So to all the people who follow my blog, whether you observe silently or comment regularly, thanks for making this work for me, with extra special thanks going to my ‘Top 5’ commenters Allison, FinlayM1, Kayti Aiken, Grey Horse Matters and Lauren.
Not only do I love to get feedback, but I thoroughly enjoy following other peoples’ blogs and making virtual friends. It’s funny to think that from this little corner of France, I have reached out and connected with people from all over the world as they document the trials and tribulations of their own lives.
On that note, I’ve somehow picked up a few new followers here, despite the fact that I haven’t posted very much this month. Welcome to Zany Zach, SunnySleevez, Ici & La Nature, James Revels, Michelle, Cristian Mihai, Kendall F Person and Gemma who have all clicked on the “Follow” button in the last month. Yeah, I know some of you are “Commercial” but that’s ok, everyone’s gotta make a buck somehow and who knows, maybe some of my other readers will want to buy sunscreen or music or a book…
Enough philosophy. Back to horse stuff tomorrow. I promise. Cross my heart.
