Blogging: a farmlet advisory

To all my dear Friends,

Having been laid up with my knee, as you know, has caused me to get very behind in posts, responses to comments, and following your lovely blogging too!  As well, there have been at least 30 new followers who have signed up to enjoy my news, and I haven’t been by to thank them personally!

Thank you new followers of the Farmlet!

I have been writing, following and loving, all you do for so long and then suddenly found it impossible to stay at the computer as long as I did in the past.  Consequently, this forced time away has opened my day to new adventures and old beloved pastimes not involving the computer, hence…

I feel the need for a schedule.

Perhaps this might do?

  • A day for posting (one for Farmlet news and one for my Flash Fiction)
  • A day for responding to comments
  • And of course; a day for visiting with you!

Give me some time to work out the details, and I will let you know what I have come up with.

It will take some discipline to see this through, but I think we will all like it when I get on track!



I looked for a suitable icon for WIP and stumbled upon this on Youtube.

OK, it isn’t a suitable icon, but

I like it.


You of course are permitted to hate it if you want to.


From Industrial Light and Magic and entitled:  Work in Progress

However you feel about it we may all agree that this one is definitely off the wall!

See you soon!

    Yup. That video certainly is off the wall. I looked, but I didn’t linger. 😉

    I’m surely glad to see you pondering schedules and such, because that’s just one more hint that you really are feeling better, and getting on with life. One of the things all of my friends and I are learning is that increasing years means slower healing. It’s a sad fact, but a fact none the less, and we’re all trying to be more patient with ourselves.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how you sort it all out, and especially looking forward to news of the farmlet!

      Then you missed the part with the operatic Ape when he changed into an vintage cymbal playing toy monkey? Too bad! 😉
      OH NO! So that’s it? You mean I’m getting older too? DANG! 😉

      Well, schedule or no schedule, I do have a post for you, Linda. 😀

    It will be nice to hear from you again a tiny bit more regularly, but getting better’s the important thing. And it’s your blog, so you can have whatever WIP icon you like, and blow what the rest of us think!

    With all of the outdoor work to be done, and gallivanting around after Daisy deer hoping for a photo moment with her fawn, I too am feeling the lack of time on the computer. We all experience it and understand. Just be good to yourself my dear deer friend!

    • Lynda says:

      Lori, of all my blogging friends you appear the most busy and yet the most laid back about posting of us all. You always post the most amazing stories and photos of nature… and seemingly without effort. I love it!

    It is bad when what should be a pleasure begins to feel like a duty. Don’t worry about anything other than doing what helps you to recover most quickly. Although we will cry bitter tears if you don’t read our deathless prose, we will survive surprisingly well.

      Nancy, I have no idea what lurks in the brain-pans of the folks of Industrial Light and Magic, but I do know my favorite part was when the gorilla turned into a cymbal playing monkey and the ‘creators’ found that more entertaining than the awesome Operatic Ape. 😉

    • Lynda says:

      I’m glad you understand, Julie. I have been sad not to get by as often as I used to. I miss your news about how you your family are doing.

    hey amiga
    there are no injuries keeping me from online duty, but the lack of internet at home has kept me offline more than i’d like.

    i hope that you’re mending and pulling strength from the longer and warmer days of spring and soon-to-be summer!


    • Lynda says:

      I am, Lisa, and even finding time to get on my bike and ride (only a little per Drs orders). Can’t wait for summer, and to get over to see what you have been creating at the Playmart! BTW, I have been actively collecting little bits and bobs to use in some of my own creations. 😀 (Hope my Farmlet friends won’t be too offended if some of them contain bones!!!)

    What ever you decide, at whatever pace works for you, is just fine by me sweet girl; ). Just glad you’re able to post. Period.: )

    I hope you knee feels better now Lynda and even without this, we all have to organize for our blogs.. it is not an easy work!!
    all my best and have a nice week

    • Lynda says:

      Chantal, my knee is a whole lot better, thank you! Working on the organization of a schedule is good, but sticking to it will be the hard part… 😉
      You have a wonderful week too!

  8. LB says:

    The joys and wonders of blogging can definitely be time consuming and therefore a schedule is a great idea!
    How great that you’ve discovered new adventures and rekindled old pastimes. Sounds good to me!!

  9. Bill says:

    This certainly resonates with me these days. It’s our busiest time of year on the farm and these days start at 6 and don’t come in until after 9. I barely have time to keep my own blog going and precious little time to go visit others. I’ve been thinking of posting less often and I like your idea of having a day for posts, a day for comments and a day for reading other blogs. But old habits are hard to break. I’ll just have to ponder it a while longer. 🙂

    Kept wondering how the other house is going. I have found great understanding lately at the frustrations my parents felt when they finally decided they were too old to do something. Don’t go too fast. Healing takes time. Stay cool in the hot Alabama weather.

    • Lynda says:

      Thank you, Margaret. It has been brutally hot here this past week. The humidity makes 90 feel like 110. I recently watched a documentary on the dust bowl. It gave me cause for pause when the “missus” of one of the couples who bought a farm there said: “We were so excited to realize our dream. We didn’t realize how hard it was going to be starting at 60.” (Paraphrased)

      We do not give up hope, but getting it to go will be a while longer. 🙂

So how about that? Go on; say something!
