I am wondering the same thing….

Is it just me because I have been away or is our corner of Blogland really quiet?  It has felt this way to me most of this year, it makes me think of how fun the holiday seasons were before this year….

I know it was going to slow down from the frenzied  first year, but it feels lonely out here now….

I miss the energy we made happen, just saying…

It does seem a lot quieter around here, I feel like I have been too though. Just have been busy busy!! Hopefully we'll all be around for the holidays and some good crafting soon!! :) Wishing you a lovely Sunday! xo Holly

I know. It's quieter- less give aways and swaps. More women doing it for money... Pinterest, facebook, etc. doesn't help either...

I can post to facebook and have almost immediate comments or likes. It's just faster! I still love playing on my blog but not as much as I used too. I used to change backgrounds and side bar pics and post much more often. I guess there's no going back unless one of us "old timers" gets some energy! :)

Hi Sandy! Im still here. I think it has been quieter.. Some people have disappeared and some are on much less. In my case, I have been finding it hard to keep up with everyone else. I think Holly is right about facebook and pinterest taking up time that we might have only been here before. I dont know! but Im still here and I'm not ready to leave blogging behind yet. I also have a package in my car all made out to you.. been driving around with it for at least a week.... maybe it will make it into the mail this week! I have an aversion to the post office or something. I can drive right by 3 of them in a day and not stop...
have a great night my sweet bloggy pal!

I think you're right. It is alot quieter. I know I've been taking some long breaks-maybe everybody just need to reenergize.

Sherry said...

I've been asking the same thing as you and Snoopy, I'm glad it's not just me. I'm guilty of letting Pinterest take up way too much of my time so I've not been blog hopping as much lately.

I'm going to start checking the sidebar on my blog first and visit my bloggy friends before Pinterest from now on.

Yes, it is "slowing down". Not sure why. I don't do face book and pinterest. Blogging is still my favorite! I've also noticed less swaps and giveaways.
Hope you are doing better...

Blogging?

Oh yeah!

I'm one of the slow ones!

I have your sign ready! Are we trading?

It definitely has been quieter this year. I like swaps more than giveaways. I tried a few when my blog was newer, hoping to get a few more followers. The ones I experienced had too many hoops to jump through..."like me on Facebook, then comment that you liked me...become a follower, then comment that you're a follower"...lol! I got tired. But I would never enter a giveaway without first being a follower anyway! One-on-one swaps are the best for me. That way I get to know the other person a bit better. And it's fun if it's a challenge...like spoolies or using a tart tin or a nest. I guess I don't like having to make a lot of the same thing. I don't plan to stop blogging for the forseeable future...it's my way of writing my personal story as well as sharing my interests and finding new friends.

Sandy, I'm sorry I've been so quiet lately! I've just had an extremely hectic fall so far! I still think of you often and am always sending prayers your way! Love Ya! Twyla

Wish I had time to come back! I actually sat at the craft table and made Xmas corsages on Friday afternoon and had a blast! This afternoon I hung the garland of tags I had made about 6 weeks ago; it was one that E profiled and used my October Afternoon papers so I had fun! Get out those ABC books and make yourself a garland! I had so much fun doing that one I could hardly wait for the next letter!

I miss everyone too, Sandy. I especially miss Elizabeth at Creative Breathing! I guess everyone is just busy doing other things, I still enjoy all my old favorites.....Shirley, Viv, Erica, Holly, Deb, Tammy, the other Holly :-), Heather, Connie, Diane, Meri, Pam, Barb, Laura, LV, gosh....that's a lot of blogging, and so many more!
I hope they don't all stop, I'm looking forward to retiring and spending more time crafting and blogging!

I haven't posted in so long, everyone has probably quit following me and doesn't remember who I am! I have had lots of things I've wanted to post, I just can't seem to find the time, or should say "make" the time!

LBP said...

I haven't posted on my blog in forever and I really do miss it and all the camaraderie of the ladies I had all the swaps and fun with last year. My Mother in law has advanced Alzheimer's and I am spending a lot of my time with her. I did take some photos this past weekend and maybe I will have time to get them on this week. I miss all of you!

Blessings

Linda

Sandy, I have been away from blogging for a while, but have recently started a new crafting and hobby blog. It's been a while since I've visited many blogs, but look forward to getting back into the swing of things! My new blog is http://craftingcapriciously.blogspot.com/, and I'll be adding your blog to my list of favorite crafty people! Becky

I have been a little quiet, just getting back from a blogging break. Hopefully with Christmas season coming it will get a little more busier with fun crafts everyone is doing! Have a lovely week! xo Heather

★Carol★ said...

I hear ya Sandy! Blogging just isn't the same as it was when we first started. Caring for my Mom takes up more time every year, and I just don't seem to have the spark that I once had for blogging. Should pick up again real soon, because I think everyone likes to blog at Christmas time!

agravette said...

I love reading your blog and I check it almost daily for new posts...I'd love to be involved in a swap, if someone is interested in getting one going. I don't have a blog of my own...like a lot of people, I'm on facebook and pinterest.

Lori said...

Thank you for posting Visions of Sugarplums in your sidebar. I've got you down for an early entry. Maybe we can liven things up a bit! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

E said...

I seem to have lost my blog mojo too not sure why, bloglovin blocks me from commenting on others posts, haven't figured that out, have two computers, both cumbersome. Most often I have to exit bloglovin and open the blog directly to comment, cant comment directly from site. Looks like you guys had a great time at Meri's, so wish I could have joined you guys !! Happy Thanksgiving, E
