6 year anniversaries and other stuff and nonsense.

Friends,  I apologise for being so absent from the blogosphere for so long and for failing to endeavour to maintain the friendships that i have forged over the 6 years that i have been blogging (I forgot all about my blogging anniversary back in July –  yes 6 years!!!).

First thing i need to say is that I don’t see this changing.

There’s heaps going on health wise, family wise etc and i really can’t deal with blogging in the same way i used to. So i guess what i am trying to say is that this is my new way of blogging; infrequently, sporadic, posting a lot at once, posting nothing for weeks, reading all my blog buds blogs through bloglines or googlereader and praying for you all. I mean that. Sending positive vibes and everything, but I am not visiting as often as i would before…you know that already though.

This is not a reflection on the way i view our friendship with one another. (For those who don’t know me in person) In person, if you knew me well, you would know that I am not the life and soul of the party and i have never wanted to be. As a friend i stand back, i am there if you need me, to offer practical help, love and support, but i’m not an in your face kind of friend…so perhaps my blogging habits are in some ways mirroring my personality?


Tomorrow i may blog, or maybe i won’t and i’m ok with that. I may not blog next week or next month either. This is perhaps the natural cycle of blogging when one feels they have said most of what they had to say?

This started out as a convert blog, but it gradually became a blog about the various aspects of my life. I know that hasn’t always pleased some of my readers…especially those who didn’t/don’t like the truth that has been borne on these ‘virtual pages’ in cyberspace.

Nowadays I need to be distracted on days when i am well enough to be doing something, so the blog has become more about resourcefulness and my newer interests in living more frugally and simply…but it’s still me folks.

I guess that’s all i want to say right now.

For those who continue to pass this way or those who read me in Googlereader etc, those who send a prayer to heaven very once in a while or otherwise think kindly of me, i hope you will long continue to do so and that my distancing myself as i have been (and likely continue to do) will not cause annoyance or upset.

Continued prayers will be offered for you all.

    One of the nice things about friends is that they’re understanding if they’re truly friends. Blog post or not, you’re remembered every day! +JMJ+ John

    Dear Madam,

    Your blog demonstrates it is possible to lead a good a decent life, one pleasing to our Divine Master.

    God be with you.

    Deb, It’s so nice to see you when you pop in, but I truly believe that you should blog as fits into your life — not make your life fit into blogging. I think you’re doing that just fine 🙂 Keeping you always in my prayers!

  4. mum6kids says:

    Deb, blogging is something to do when you feel like it. It should never become a burden.
    Friendships will outlast blogging anyway.

    Having said that (blushes with shame now) I’ve tagged you for the devotional meme. LOL. But don’t feel pressured to do it. After all what IS important is your prayer life-not what you write about it.

    Talk soon
    God bless

  5. Barbara says:

    I have not posted anything for ages. LIke your dear friends who commented earlier, post when and what you feel like.

    Always on the end of an email if you need me.

    EVery blessing.

    Not a problem. No explanation necessary, really. God bless you.

    As an article as early as 2003 or 04 said, “Real life trumps blogging every time” and while one can argue that blogging is a part of life one understands the intention.

  7. Hi Deb, I’ve been out for some time myself due to the responsibilities of my daughter’s wedding. I think you have a very good and balanced sense of how blogging may or may not fit into your life right now and in the future. We all must realize that at different times we are called to spend our time on other things. You remain in my prayers. I will stop by now and then to see how you are. And whether you’re posting or not you’ll still stay among my favorite e-friends. God bless you and yours today and always.

  8. Rita says:

    Nice to have you back, but don’t ever feel blogging is a pressure.

    You sure aren’t forgotten in this sleepy corner of Wessex, whether you post or not, I will keep praying for you and yours,

    With love

  9. Mary Lou says:

    Hi Debbie,
    I’m finally back. Gosh what an appropriate post–readers are like that as well, things in their lives cause them to come and go. I think of you so often and pray for you even more. Stay well, stay happy, I will continue to hold you in prayer.

  10. Renee says:

    Just popping in to say hello, and that you most certainly are not forgotten. Friends are friends, after all! Many blessing to you and yours!!

    I am so touched by all your responses. I apologise for being so late in responding to your comments. I haven’t been feeling too good and Wonderboy has decided he doesn’t want contact again so it’s quite tough right now. Spiritually, i’m struggling too. Might do a post about it. Thank you all for your kind words, i’ve felt quite down physically too…will explain more about that in the post.

  12. Elena says:

    happy blogiversary Deb – and I hope that you feel cheerier soon!

  13. Matheus says:


    You don’t know me but I remember you from when you used to comment regularly on Jimmy Akin’s blog during its “golden days”.

    I read your blog every once in a while and will certainly include you and your family in my prayers (and I ask you to do the same for me).

    • ukok says:

      Matheus, i’m so touched that you would remember me from JA’s blog. How kind of you to stop by and leave a comment letting me know that you remember me from there. Please be assured of my prayer being offered for you and your family. God Bless you!
