I miss blogging and mentioned it to someone the other day. They said no one wants to read blogs anymore. I am pretty sure that isn’t true. Authors still write books and people read them and they even make it to the best sellers list and have them adapted to film at times. Not everyone is completely addicted to TikTok or Insta. My friend Claudia has been blogging and I have been a subscriber for years–since I moved to the UK 3 years I have gotten emails of her blog posts and enjoyed them. It made me feel great to see her working and all the thoughts she had about the process and the art.
Making a commitment to blog has happened–I will do it. Soon I will have consistent wifi for the first time in 3 years. I am really looking forward to it and finding new friends that read, write and make art. Live and blogging is a beautiful thing!
The art above is made from old magazines and paper that I alter and collage and then paint. It is one of the processes I love and helps me offset some of my carbon footprint. It helps keep the magazines out of the landfill. I started it about 3-4 years ago and haven’t shared much of the work. I was waiting for the right time, this must be the right time.

Thank for the mention, and I agree with you. Blogging is a different form of communication than other social media and satisfies a different need in both writer and reader. I would continue with my blog even if only a couple of people ever read it, but I think there is a whole world out there looking for a connection, more than we ever know as blog writers/creators. Really to glad to hear your voice again. (Please excuse typing, I just had eye surgery, and a lot of things are geting past me right now…!)
My subscription to your blog kept me feeling tethered during the lockdown, it was wonderful to read and see what you were creating. Hope you are feeling better soon 🙂
