And I’m back =).
As aforementioned here I had housesitting duties to cover for a friend’s belated honeymoon~♥ and really it was mostly taking care of their pets♥ mostly and I must say the amenities were quite nice!! Hard to imagine that the summer’s officially over and yet it’s still very much summer-like with the heat and humidity still lingering on. But there was air conditioning there yay! you see I don’t get that at home =(.
So anyway just a few thoughts about the blog while I have you here reading as I’ve been thinking about and feeling really badly about my falling behind in comments and if you’ve been visiting here for awhile then you’ll know that I used to be really quite prompt in commenting and answering messages but since then my life’s gotten a bit more I don’t want to say complicated so it’s been rather a bit more just busy with the personal aspects needing much of my attention and very much more so than in the past as living conditions and the like change over time as it’s happened to me also.
The friendships and speaking with those with similar interests really do make everything which is wonderful about blogging and without that blogs simply die over time and it’s been truthfully the driving force in keeping things fun and motivated for me. And so with my much more limited time to spend here blogging as some days I can’t even get to my laptop =( I just wanted to reiterate that I do cherish and read absolutely everything commented on here despite my absence in commenting on my own and I sincerely apologize for that so much.
It’s absolutely a fault of my own doing in that I tend to spend so much time in creating posts here as for example with the post on Nacchi’s new album which is just before this post, I spent over four hours getting that post ready and likewise with Tomochin’s recent post over 9 hours to complete which includes encoding of media, scans, photography, image-caps and editing, post design, any additional random silliness which often occurs and then uploading time. And with magazines and photo books which I often scan depending on the thickness of the publication it can take anywhere from 5 to 8 hours to complete one set of scans as cropping and further editing is most often also necessary for each image. I guess what I’m trying to say is that with my limited blog time these days I’d really love to post as much as possible but at the same time I’d love to comment as much as possible and there lies my balancing act as if I post more often I’ll have that much less time to comment which is what’s been happening or I could do vice versa with equally unbalanced results =(. And so I’m curious to know what you’d like to see more of in how I spend my bloggy time here as I feel conflicted deciding that on my own and besides you’re the sole reason for me continuing to blog here so you’re voice means the most. I know that most visitors here are very quiet and won’t say anything but any response will be most appreciated and taken to heart ….you know if you get the happy urge to type something into that little comment box, thank you♥ in advance ^^.
