Time for a change….

Time for a change….
Restaurant's "Sorry we're Closed" sign

I’ve decided the time has come to make a few changes to my online presence. Five years ago when I started this blog I didn’t sew, I didn’t quilt, I hadn’t discovered Flickr, or Pinterest or GoodReads or Twitter. I didn’t own an SLR camera and I didn’t have a photography blog to maintain. Other than Facebook (which hardly anyone was on) my blog was pretty much my only way to communicate with the world. Over the last half decade I have been spreading myself more and more thinly and I’ve decided to do an audit, which means the time is right to stop blogging here.

I’m not disappearing entirely. You can still follow my photography blog at claremansell.com and if you are a Flickr user I’d love you to add me as a contact and keep up to date with me and my family’s activities through my photostream (I’m making a conscious effort to post photos with more text) I have considered doing a Tumblr blog, and may yet, but for now this blog is being mothballed. Thank you for all your support and comments and for stopping by and reading, it has always been much appreciated…

PS – For those of you who have been hanging on to see if I was correct about my blogger-friend’s baby name, she’s still yet to have it, but I shall post an update on my Flickr photostream to let you know if I was right when she does!

Sorry you’re not blogging any more. I know what you mean about social media though. As much as I love it I have never joined Twitter because it would be too easy to 1)spread myself too thin online 2) Spend so much time online I don’t do any photography or sewing any more!

Clare, I’ve enjoyed your blog the last 2-3 years (??) and getting to know you through it–You’ve taken me to places I’ll probably never get to visit, and shared your life and adventures. Our lives change, and yours certainly has and is full of so many wonderful and beautiful things–I admire you for looking for and finding the balance in your life. I wish you and your family good health, happiness, and all the very, very best!!

Oh what a shame – I will miss reading your blog. As I don’t do any of the other social media stuff (blogging is as much as I can manage) I will miss finding out about how things are with you your family and your quilting. Really must source that dough book you suggested many months ago. Hopefully you might pop past and leave a comment from time to time. Good luck in your new ventures!

I’m sorry to hear you are ending your blog, but I know how hard it is to juggle so many things at once. I will enjoy following your photography venture, I’ve had a look already at your new site and your pictures are terrific – you are very talented!! Good luck with it all x
