Just a little November hello to all of you before another month (or year) ends.
The "back to the future" part of this note is this . . .
I've not been very good at posting on my blog for the last year or two, (or 3) but
I really am going to do better.
I miss it.
I remember when blogging was the big techy thing of the future.
Then facebook and other social media took over. There aren't enough
minutes in a day to post, blog, work and attend to the realities of life. We all
know which of these is most important, right?
I've never been a big "poster" on facebook. I use it mainly for the
From Our Hands show, and for that it works well to get the word out.
It's also a great place for stitchers all over the world to unite.
But . . . .
I'm finding facebook too political and too filled with anger.
It moves too fast for me, it's too many people and I need my world to quiet a little.
(I will still promote our show there, but you'll find out about my work, shows and life here and thru my newsletter ~ see sign up in right sidebar.)
I do like instagram as it's more about pretty photos, but I'm sad that it's owned by facebook and afraid of what it will become.
I guess it's a lesser of 2 evils, so for now you will still find my photos there.
Pinterest ~ I loved it in the begining . . . I still use it for inspiration and try to keep my work page up to date, but all the ads make me anxious and are SO distracting.
Shouldn't looking at pretty photos be a calming experience?
To this end . . . I'm going to be blogging more.
I can type, breathe, post a pretty photo and go along my way.
(No need for me to "like" everything ~ no need for you to feel obligated to comment ~
just know that I appreciate your taking time to share in my little world.)
So back to what was once the future, it may be "old fashioned" now,
but ~ I'm kinda old fashioned too!
