Why You Should Keep Blogging

I have learned that you need to keep blogging, because weird things happen while you are away, like all of your pictures dissapearing!

Like I said in my last post, I haven’t been blogging for awhile, or even paying attention to any of my many blogs. Of course, the first thing I want to do is change the theme, and I have spent the last hour or so looking at new themes. I finally find what I think is a great site, they have a lot of themes that I like, and are original. I download a few, install the first one, and it crashes my blog! How annoying. To fix it I have to go into my cpanel to delete the theme. Finally get that straightened out, try another theme, same result. Arggg.
So much for that site.
So I have just switched to an older theme that I had. Later I will seach again for the perfect theme.

But then I notice that my pictures are missing.
All my great hiking and kayaking pictures.
Well, right before I quit blogging I changed hosts. I thought I transferred over all the files.
Apparently I forgot my images file.
I can’t go back and get it! Arggg!
The pictures are on my computer, but I would have to go into each post and find the missing pictures and upload each one individually. I’ll have to think about that one.

I was going to post about my new house, but that will have to wait for next time. Because I need to update my WordPress and a bunch of my plugins. Then I should check my other blogs….
Sigh.

Julie and Julia

I just finished watching Julie and Julia on DVD. It is about the beginning of Julia Child’s career as a chef, and at the same time it is about Julie Powell who goes on a mission to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking which she documents in a blog. I enjoyed the movie, it was both touching and funny. Plus the food looked fabulous! But what really struck a cord with me was Julie’s blogging. She had a passion for cooking and a passion for blogging. It made me start to think about why I quit blogging.

I really don’t have to think to hard. I quit blogging about 6 months ago, at the same time my husband left.
Funny thing, finally no one is around to complain about how much time I spend on the computer, and I quit blogging.

Well thanks to the movie, I hope I am back. The husband isn’t, and I’ll probably talk more about that later. But for now I have new plans and a new life ahead, and I’ll have lots to blog about!
