We're all here 'cos we're not all there



I didn't just disappear into instagram-land if that's what you though, but I did disappear to the "real" world for a spell. Undid my Facebook, didn't list stuff on etsy and barely glanced at the internet at all. It is more than likely that this will continue for a while longer. I'm trading bloggin and social medias for sick cats, six-day workweeks, gardens, kayaking and big jumps.

Having said that, pretty much every time I announce I'm not going to blog a lot, I end up blogging a lot and whenever I promise to blog something it likely has to wait, or never quite materializes. Such is the nature of the beast, I guess.

Thank you for your excellent thoughts on micro-bloggery and everything else. I hope to see them again soon and maybe even share some of my own. If they should occur.

Yours in thoughtlessness,
M

ps. so close  to writing 'six cats'. Wishful. Thinking.

  1. Sick cats - oh no! The kayaking and the garden and the big jumps(?) sound pretty damn good though.

  2. Have fun living your life, love. Except the sick cats and overworked bit. I thought you wrote six cats too! Had to do a double take, and suppress my jealousy ;) can't wait to hear more about it all.

  4. Oh my, Kissa and Kettu are both sick? This is not nice. I'm sending you all resting and healing vibes.

    And I hear you on being busy elsewhere! It took me a good ten days to start writing my "coming soon" chapter 4, and then I had to change the structure completely because it didn't make sense anymore with the previous chapters ;o) Still working on it all! Stay tuned (if you like :o)

    xo xo

  5. Hope the cats are doing better. Sounds like they need their mom right now.

  6. I had to do the same thing my friend. Except I was more rude about it and didn't leave an explanation. Am having epiphanies all over the place right now about the fact that I'm "working" and it has as much value as my husband's paid work - but I've been prioritising his health over mine....and now....I'm friggin sick again for the second time in three weeks. We have to sit down and have THAT talk. Pulling weight around the house, and alternating nights getting up for kids/dog/spooks etc. Phew, sorry about that, I should put this in my own blog post. xo take care

  7. You know, I never see this blogging thing as all that important...but then I don't really do that whole push myself to write blog posts thing. I tried a monthly challenge here or there, but it's not my thing, so I basically write only when I feel like having something to say/share/give. Besides, I have such a butterfly brain that I can't possibly stick to a regiment! (It's all I can do to take photos and upload them to stock agencies) So I completely agree with you. There are sooo many more important things to focus time and available energy on than this whole blogging/social media...etc, thing. And especially when you have a job, a husband, a garden and sick cats...let alone six cats! Lol.

  8. Milla! This one struck a chord with me. Totally. I came close to canceling my long awaited getaway to NM due to a sick cat. I waited it out and then she made a rapid recovery and shooed me off to the land of enchantment!
    My gatos mean everything to me. I will gladly put my iPad away for some quality time with the babies. Plus, tending your garden must take loads of time and patience. We must take to kayak, mustn't we?! Your balancing act is impressive, girl.

  9. Hey there lady! I too took a bit of a hiatus from the world of blogging, both blogging myself and even reading blogs. I didn't very eloquently exit either-- (better stated by Tina). So I've missed a bit that I need to now scroll down and catch up on :) I hope to continue to keep in touch with you, one way or another. I haven't had any earth shattering life changes (recently), but I feel myself changing and wanting something different from the growing smaller amount of time I spent behind a computer. I hope the business is going well and I am sending you lots of warm thoughts and wishing you a most long and lazy summer :)

  10. PS: So I just read below... and you hit the nail quite right on the head! I am that person. Did I mention this to you already, or am I experiencing dejavu? I got a smartphone exactly one year ago (please take note that I didn't even text up until that point) and I agree with all of your musings and many of those shared by readers... yet... I. can't. break. away. I'm kind of sucked in, and there is a part of me that is sort ok with this transition. I can't precisely put my finger on what is happening, or what my true feelings are about it yet. I don't want to pass judgement because I would be a hypocrite. Some of it for me is positive. I really like Instagram... and I'm so happy you are on there now! ;) I'm following you actually already. There are so many negatives though. Are we cyborgs? Is the end approaching? Is the next stage of our human evolution to become robots? I'm not sure, but who has time to think about these questions when I need to go post what I just age for lunch :) I'm looking forward to more of this conversation Milla. When you get back from your hiatus.
