Since I didn't keep up with my blog in June it also means that I didn't participate in the Tuesday's Slice of Life put on by Two Writing Teachers. Which means I wasn't reading other people's blogs either.
I'm back at daily blogging. Back to posting my Tuesday Slice. And back to reading other people's blogs.
I knew I missed blogging. Missed putting my thoughts into black and white words. Missed writing about my life, the books I read, taking pictures of the little things in my life and sharing.
What I didn't realize is how much I missed reading other people's blogs.
I have a ton of blogs I follow in my Feedly but their not real people. I mean, they ARE real people but they aren't the teacher with a little blog they keep up with for themselves. They are professional bloggers. They do blog about their life but they also blog advertisements and stuff for money.
I missed the... I don't know what word to use here... amateur (maybe) blogger.
I like reading about the little things. Like the teacher blogger who was moving states, changing from a suburban, financially fluent school to an urban school with no money. Or the mom blogger who found some journals from her childhood who took some time to read through them and remember her old self.
I missed those simple things. I didn't expect that.
