Ooooppss…I threw the baby out with the bathwater there…..

baby with the bathwater

Hello everyone, I have missed you all, writing my bits and pieces and reading your posts. So much happened last year that my downsize/re-vamp was severe to say the least and when it came to my writing I realised that I had thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Previously, I streamed my blog through to Facebook and Twitter and I think I overcomplicated things. Personally, I found Facebook to be a leech on time and Twitter I never got…what is that all about? I had people following me for goodness knows what reasons and rarely did I get to engage with anyone properly. So having found myself missing writing and my blogging family, I thought I can blog without ‘additions’ and simplify it all somewhat and still write. Yay!

So with much love, a Happy New Year to you all, and may it be a year full of warmth and happy possibilities (including writing).

    Heeey, it’s good to see you again Jane. Do what ya love, I say. As for FB and Twitter they’re good ways to get viewers. You don’t need to get “bogged down” just post your blog stuff there.

    Welcome Back!!

    Love and Blessings ~ Maxi

    Hello Jane buddy – though I am on FB, it has become too frivolous for my liking. Twitter? What’s that? Like you – back to ‘good old’ blogging. Much luv and hugz, Eric

    Yay, you’re back!! Wonderful!

    I must admit I am far too obsessed with fb for it to be healthy! Hence it being one of my “not resolutions” in my latest post!!

    Regarding Twitter, I, too, tried it!! ?????

    Love and big welcome back (((hugs)))

    Christine and her teapots 🙂
