Oh, lawd...sometimes it just takes a 2 x 4 upside the head

You know, while I was out decorating a room for a charitable cause, I had time to think about this blog and what it says about me. 

And I came to a conclusion, helped in part by several of my regular readers, one I didn't even know was reading.  They both said that they don't read to look at my crappy DIY pictures, but to read my writing.  Which was the whole reason I started this blog.


So while I'm NOT giving up the DIY entirely, I am going to focus on writing.  If you don't want to read because you have a need to look at photographs, you don't have to. There are plenty of blogs out there with great photography. (After all, this IS America!)  Meanwhile, you few and stalwart readers will get to read about how people are so quick to assume I am over 55. Or about saying goodbye to summer.

You know...what used to be "the usual" stuff on my blog.  Before I drank all that lovely, colorful, heavily-sweetened Kool-Aid.  Before I thought that people would like me better if I did what everyone else is doing.  (Here's where I'm supposed to sound like my mother and say "If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?")

That being said...thanks to you who are here to read.  I really appreciate it.

And here is my picture for today:

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

So glad you had your "duh" moment and are back with us again. In all your fun and flavorful glory!

And that line, "my favorite bridge" made me chuckle. You see, my husband despises bridges ...

Glad to hear you're sticking around. Truthfully, I could care less about DIY stuff & recipes on blogs. I just like reading the "stories" that go with them!

I love the writing and the adventure of finding out what the topic will be next (or music video, or murder mystery, or next trip to CNY).

Bliss said...

The Kool-aid was hard to resist huh?
Nice Bridge :)
Listen to your mother. That water will most likely be too cold.
Welcome back.
