I'm bacccckkkk!

Hmmmm, well, I was going to give up blogging.

Just too many creeps and snarks and horrible people out there and I stumbled on a vicious site of women pulling apart and criticising and generally being totally awful about other women's blogs and it made me feel very vulnerable.  (There wasn't anything there about me and with blogger statistics page thing I can see if there's a sudden spike in traffic here and from where so I guess I'd know if I did make the radar but still...) anyway, it was all a bit unsettling as the mean women were able to dig up so much stuff about the bloggers on the internet and repost and publicise it and it was all seen as fair fodder for snarking at.

So, I went quiet here and was thinking of just not bothering any more.

Then it got to rice harvest season and we were trying to remember when we harvested the rice last year and I just click, click, clicked and there was the date and pictures and memories right there.

And I thought hmmmm, not blogging because you're afraid of what might happen between people you don't know seems pretty stupid.

And then I thought well I use facebook and have had some articles published online in various places so it's not like I couldn't be traced anyway, right?

And I was thinking FB would be a good blog alternative in the scrapbook/ diary of our lives kind of way but they keep changing it on me and I can hardly find stuff there at all anymore so maybe blogging afterall....

And I like this as a record of our life here as maybe one day I'll get it al printed into a book.

Yeah right.

Maybe one day!

Anyway.  All that is to say that I was gone and now I'm back. :)

Narcissistic blog post over.

I'm glad you are back :)

I would have missed your blog too much if you quit... am kind of worried about that blog you found though?! Who are they targeting? Other women in Japan?

I'm glad you're back too! Even though I never comment, sorry! And that other site you found sounds extremely unsettling, and although my inquiring mind is dying to no more, I don't want to know any more. If I found out my blog was being ripped apart by other women it would just do serious damage to me, no effect whatsoever on them. And I need my blog, no matter how little or few and far between my posts are. Screw the bullies of the world! And thanks for yesterday! Sorry Amelie wasn't as into the research as we were!

heyyy! Thanks Brenda for pushing me back into blogging yesterday. :) That troll that was going around and made horrible comments on even the incredibly lovely Lily's blog unsettled me but I didn't mean to make everyone paranoid- the nasty site is free jinger dot org and the blogs they rip apart are fundamentalist Christian and earth loving hippie mum blogs so I think we're all safe for now. I was just really horrified by how rottenly outright vile they were- even when they knew the author was reading what was written. I don't know, I like to go around thinking we're all nice people out to do good and pay it forward. Makes me ridiculously naive I'm sure but naive and happy. :) Here's to rainbows, sunshine and friendly blogging!
