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.
Maybe one day!
Anyway. All that is to say that I was gone and now I'm back. :)
Narcissistic blog post over.
