Some thoughts on bloglife inspired by posts and comments during the past week...
In theory, I don't really expect anyone to actually keep up with every word I write. (I've said that a couple of times before.) That would be totally ureasonable, because I don't have the time or energy myself to always read every post in every blog I follow either. (And even less comment on.)
And still, when writing, one sort of assumes that readers have read - and what's more, also still remember the contents of! - previous posts... Because honestly - and I think most of you will agree with me - otherwise one would never get on with anything... One would be stuck in a kind of Groundhog Day (the movie with Bill Murray), just repeating the same things over and over. (In the long run, not much fun for anybody!)
The thing is, after a while, one knows there are certain readers who usually do miraculously manage to keep up pretty well. One gets comfortable, and forgets that not everybody was there from start; and that those who weren't might need to be filled in sometimes about certain facts briefly mentioned in the past.
Thinking about it now, this week has been a sort of Groundhog Day (or week) for me. A lot of going round in circles and repeating, although trying to learn from my mistakes at the same time. (That is what they do in that movie. If you've missed it, it's worth seeing. More than once.)
In the meantime, I realize yet again that I've come across some really amazing people here in the Blogworld. When I started this blog ten months ago I was kind of writing into empty space. I no longer feel like that. Thank you.
