Turning Off Comments

I've made a decision that I have been vacillating over for a while. I have decided to turn off the comments section of my blog. It seems I am blogging less and less. There are lots of reasons for this, but mostly they narrow down to time management.
There has been a slow moving trend in the blogging world. People are using Instagram more and blogging less and it has led to fewer posts and less and less interaction between my readers and me. I think readership is down and then of course comments have dwindled and to be honest, that made me sad. I loved reading your comments and I prided myself on always responding to every comment. I'll admit I have been guilty of not reading as many blogs as I used to. I seem to scroll for content and then I usually don't comment, either. Guilty as changed!
When I originally started blogging, it was for me, as a permanent record of my creativity, travels and family life. I will continue to blog for that very reason. I cannot tell you how many timnes I have referred to my blog to look something up or to find a photo or a recipe. It's a great source of reference for me. 
I am still planning on blogging and now I might even pick up the pace a little more, after the Christmas holidays wind down.
So the things that started me blogging...

TRAVEL


QUILTING


BAG MAKING


FLOWER ARRANGING


GARMENT MAKING


MARTHA STEWART LABRADOODLE


KNITTING


GARDENING


COOKING, BAKING AND CANNING

FAMILY LIFE


I'll still be blogging about all these things.

I hope you will continue to read my blog and if you want to comment or have a question you can always email me or leave a comment on Instagram, because it seems that is an easier medium to communicate quickly. 


THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
