I’m Quiet Now, But Just Wait.
I realize I have not been keeping up on my blogging, and I apologize. We celebrated Two-Lane Livin’s second birthday, then the garden came on, then fall chores needed done, and here I am.
I am fully aware that blogging “rules” require regular updates. If you’re new to my blogging, then you know that I blog with great regularity in the winter. It’s just so hard to keep up in spring, summer and harvest when you live on a farm.
I both love and hate social media. I know of its importance in networking and marketing, in keeping communication lines open, but it feels so…. shallow. In the winter, when I’m taking a break from my winter projects, I blog. When I’m bored, I blog. When I feel the need to reach out, I blog.
But when I actually have a life? I’m too busy to blog.
The next month doesn’t leave much room for blogging. It’s time to get the Christmas ad promotions together, and Frank and I now have monthly trips to Morgantown for new media workshops at WVU as part of WVUncovered.
I am also looking forward to a several day visit from my Mother, and a several day visit from a cousin in California whom I haven’t seen in eight years.
Of course, the garden isn’t finished. We still have sweet potatoes to dig, carrots to dig, and the garden space to clean up when done. I need to winterize our chicken tractor, get the vehicles ready for winter deliveries, and – well, the list goes on and on.
If you follow this blog through an RSS feeder, you may also want to bookmark our online edition of Two-Lane Livin’, which now updates like a blog and has an RSS feed as well. You can find it online at http://www.twolanelivin.com/issues.
I hope to send out more updates from here. I should learn how to do it from my cell phone – but I have a love/hate relationship with my cell phone as well. There’s no real push for me to make good use of it. We don’t get any signal here at the house. But I suppose, on these new trips away from the desktop, I should learn to make better use of it.
Either way, as the winter weather progresses and shuts me in the house more, you’ll likely get sick of my updates.
But for now, and for October, it looks to remain sporadic.
I suppose, if today is the worst of the trip (and it really wasn't that bad) things are going quite well. Jim - our friendly,
