trying to do better…

My blog views are “rocketing” today, and I just realized that State of Origin must be happening in dear old Queensland, Australia. I wrote those posts so long ago, but what I had to say about rugby league football and the Queensland Maroons still applies, even if I’ve been away from AUS for more than 2 years now.

Meanwhile, summer is in full swing, and I haven’t felt like writing. Or posting. Despite just having been to Seabrook for my conference. So, I will try and shape up, and get back to posting now and then. If you have a blog, you’ll know that every blogger goes through ups and downs, trying to figure out where they are as a writer, and having days when you’ve got nothing to share. Or don’t know how to share it.

I even know that my stats tell me that I have over 400 followers, but even that can be a little depressing when I can tell that many of them are those “blogs” where they tell you how to get rich and travel the world… is that even fair, that they use you for advertising, when there’s no proof that they ever read your blog? I would like to know that what I write and the photos I take… I want them to be interesting to someone, or even to brighten someone’s day. No one wants their “followers” to be a bunch of fakes.

I don’t mean that to sound that harsh. Many of you have been following me since I was in Australia, and some of you probably do read my posts. I wish I could write something exciting and fun, like I used to, when I was chasing my Aussie kiddos…

If you’re a fellow blogger, and know what it’s like, I hope you’ll have a cheerful word for me. Some of my writing mojo is missing, and I can’t seem to find it again. Hang in there, and I should figure this out again.  : )DSC_0818 DSC_0821

  1. Hi Rachel, I am your real follower. Though I don’t remember when and how I come across your blog but I liked your style of writing immediately. You are on good terms with Her Majesty English Grammar, unlike me :) Which is priceless for me being an English learner. It’s not only interesting to read your posts it is also helps me to learn this beautiful language. And I love to take pictures too. And I love reading…
    Take it easy, your blog is not unwanted work that must be done anyway. Whatever time it will take, your inspiration and desire to write will be back. Sure! And nobody said it must be on daily bases.
    Enjoy summer and friends))) keep your camera handy to share summer sunny nature’s looks with us someday…
    your Russian follower, Annet
