Enough of that!

Okaaaaaay, then. That was a short-lived experiment.

Turns out guilt-free blogging = fun-free blogging. Whenever I posted I felt like I was talking to myself. Who needs that? I also had that elementary-school feeling that all my girlfriends were hanging out without me. Ugh.

I thought I could live without comments. Turns out, I can't. Can I come back and join the party?

DO YOU REALIZE HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS FOR ME TO BE SILENT? DO YOU? DO YOU? DO YOU?!

kirsten said...

shiso mama said...

pretty funny. it's so overwhelming to keep up with everyone, true, but fun too! when you're not feeling overwhelmed, that is.

Katherine said...

Love looking at your work. Missed you. Glad you're (all the way) back. See, look - you made me de-lurk. But, please, feel free to spend more time by your machine than at the keyboard. It's okay. Really it is.

lera said...

yay! glad you're back.

Heather said...

So glad you're back, blogland was awfully boring without you!

Erin said...

Yay your back. You know us fellow bloggers can always comment but you don't have to respond!!!

Leslie said...

We like you! We really, really like you!!!!

kathy said...

It was really weird not being able to comment. Welcome back!

Ali said...

Oh, thank goodness. I kept wanting to say stuff and then feeling deflated when I couldn't.
You don't need to reply, but I really really need to be able to comment I found!

Lora said...

Just couldn't stay away from us eh?? So glad your back!! Love your crafty adventures that you share!

Mo said...

Oh all right...

Angelika said...

Your posts make blogland so much more colorful and fun.

Beth H said...

Glad to have you back...can't wait to see what's up next.

Chara Michele said...

Yay! I am glad that you are back (with comments), although you really don't need to reply back to any of our comments (or at least mine) if you don't feel like it! :)

Angela said...

You're the best. You are so funny and I'm glad you're "back". :)

Samantha said...

Welcome back. :-) Please don't feel like you have to answer every comment. Seriously, it doesn't bother us! We just like being able to tell you how much we appreciate your posts!

laeroport said...

Yippie!

melissa deakin said...

i am new to your blog, but oh so happy that you are allowing commments.
i wanted to tell you that i adore your work.
don't feel like you need to reply.
i just wanted to say hi!

caitlyn said...

Glad that you are back!
Yup, there is definitely no need to respond to every comment. Another option (which I personally might try) is to respond within the comments after a day or two.

Katie said...

Thank goodness. I hate not to be able to comment when I really have something to say, like, "I love those tissue box covers!"

P.S. Don't reply to this comment. =)

Stacy said...

squealing right along with the rest of them. :)

She sure is strange! said...

I started a blog a few months ago. Being the "different" person that I am, it was JUST for me to record various thoughts. Entertaining was the last thing on my mind. If I happen to post something helpful to someone, that's great, but my main purpose was a written record/journal for me.

I seriously doubt many have read it, maybe a handful. There have been 2 comments so far but that is perfectly fine with me. Blogs are tools, use them as you need to. If it is a way to keep in touch with other crafty people or a way to collect your own thoughts, just do it!

Welcome back!! Nice to have you back in the party, and the tissue box covers are lovely.

weirdbunny said...

Horay !! Yes please come back and join the party. When I announced that I was giving up my blog, I managed for a month, then I just had to come back !!!!!

joyce said...

ha ha! you're funny =)

Melissa said...

please do come back, I've missed you!

Eren said...

He, he...I had to stop in for the very reason to see how your "turning off comments" experiment was going. And now I dont have do try it myself. I know I would have the same feelings. And Im dying to know what's keeping you up at night...do tell, soon.
