I Just Couldn't Keep Away





Right. Well… here I am again. I just couldn’t keep away.

The thing is, I love writing and as something of a jaw-me-dead, I have lots to say so blogging kills two birds. Then there’s the fact that I missed this place, sharing my thoughts with people who clearly appreciate them and when several of you sent me messages on Facebook or through emails, asking whether I planned to start blogging again and telling me how much it was missed, well I just knew I had to come back.

I even stopped reading blogs regularly for a while because I found so much inspiration in what my favourite bloggers were writing about that it was becoming a bit frustrating. It didn’t help though, because life in itself does exactly the same thing. Inspiration is everywhere around us, every day of our lives.

Since deciding to lay the blog to rest, a good few of you have added me as a friend on Facebook but it isn’t the same. Not even close. Facebook has its place but it’ll never take the place of blogging. Thanks for adding me though, it was really nice to know that so many of you wanted to stay in touch.

Anyway, I can’t promise that I’ll be posting every day at the moment but as I said, I’m a jaw-me-dead so no doubt I’ll be posting regularly. There’s just so much to say, only this time I won’t be sticking to subjects that are related to simple living, although I'm sure simple living with still feature heavily. I’ll be ‘chatting’ about anything that happens to interest me at the time. And you’ll probably discover sides of me that I haven’t written about before so watch out for a few surprises - this is me, warts and all. And what’s more, it doesn’t matter anymore that ‘somebody’ could be reading this because by stopping doing something I enjoy, I’m letting somebody else control what I do, even though they’re not actually trying to. How daft is that?

I’ll be back tomorrow with a proper post.

Take care, everybody. And happy Valentine's Day.

Sharon J xx

She's back! She's back! It's the same one!

Caroline said...

Hooray, Hooray, Hooray. Every cloud has a silver lining - when you stopped blogging, we became 'Facebook friends' and it's been fun keeping up with you on that while you've been away. Now it'll be the best of both worlds. Welcome back, Sharon!

Oh such good news. I planned to email you today to say I hope you are feeling better? I've found even blogging 2-3x a week is helpful!

Is lovely to see you back have had Mom (Margarets Ramblings) chatting away about you again, glad you are back and no one should ever stop what you love doing.

Sharon J said...

Little Terraced House. I'm sorry you weren't able to find me on Facebook. If you're still interested then I'm the one with the photo of me wearing a grey dress and denim jacket (just a head and shoulders shot). I do have a tendency to put random pictures that I just happen to like as my profile pic though but I'll leave 'me' there for a while now.

Of course, this still applies to anybody else who'd like to add me to their Facebook friends :)
