This summer, several of my blogging friends have been in accidents, near accidents or have been sick. And then there was the emergency room run Norm and I had to make in August.
I was talking to Grandma Rosie about this and got to thinking. What would happen if something tragic happened to one of my friends? Would they just disappear off the face of the blogging world and we would never hear from them again?
Actually, this has happened to many of my chatting friends over the years. I had some that I would chat with in the wee hours of the morning, night after night after night. One was from South America, one was from Seattle, Washington.
They stopped writing and I haven’t heard from them for five years. Well, take that back, the South American one used to write to me at Christmas, so I haven’t heard from him for two years!
So, what happened to them? Just got bored? Or some tragic accident? I still think about them and wonder just how things are going for them.
Then there was the case this summer of me suddenly quitting Homesteadblogger. If it hadn’t been for Carla Lynne knowing where I moved, I would have lost many of you friends, as you didn’t know where I had gone.
So, this is my thought, people. Shouldn’t we have some kind of back-up plan to let people know what happens? For instance, should we train a member of our family to post something? (I remember Carla had daughter Amy Rachel post when she was very sick!)
I know I would be very unhappy if one of you stopped posting for ever so long and disappeared from sight.
What are your thoughts? Let me know what you think. Or if you think I am paranoid!
It’s going to be a windy day today, but sunny, non-the-less. And, it’s Friday the thirteenth! You have a beautiful, hex-less day!
