This blog of mine has been around for a few years now. It’s made quite a few moves, but oddly enough, I’ve managed to keep my blogging buddies. For that, I’m very thankful. When you blog like this, you get to know your fellow bloggers a little bit, as you well know.
This is a difficult subject and I’m not even a hundred per cent certain it’s even an issue. However, I have very sensitive antennae, and usually they work really well.
If someone stops “following” you … that’s no big deal, I’ve “unfollowed” myself, at times, when I’ve come to a realisation that we have absolutely nothing in common … nothing to say to each other. That’s alright — we’re all different, huh?! But when someone you’ve had a closer contact with, ceases to visit/comment, even though the person’s still around the blogging circles … that’s something else. I always loved her input, and now I miss it. We even had a contact outside the blogosphere, at times … email, texting … it felt like we really connected, and that’s rare with me and other women.
I wish I was wrong about this. Been through all comments and other correspondence, trying to determine what it could be. In my case, as a non-native English-speaker, it could always be the language barrier … that I’ve said something “stupid” without even realising it, but I can’t find that either.
The most logical, would, of course be, to ask her outright, but I’m holding off for a while, still clinging to hope that I’m wrong about all this — overly sensitive. IF it turns out it was nothing and she comes back, I’ll never mention this again.
Apart from that, it’s business as usual. We «jumped» Spring here, and it dove straight into Summer. The first batch of ducklings is out — I saw them the day before yesterday. Apparently, that’s exactly the same time as last year — just got one of those emails, reminding me of what I shot this day one year ago; that was ducklings and marmots. This proud, Mother Duck, has eight little balls of down. At least, she had, the day before yesterday — they often tend to diminish! At night, there’s another crew out and about — a crew that would find duckling delicious!
Happy June, bloggeroos! Today, we’ll have some fun in the sun, I suppose.
