Picking things up again

 Had to look twice before I noticed she was carrying a black cat :)

Hi all! 

I have been keeping in touch with a lot of people via Facebook, which I only joined last year. 
I was reluctant to join as I enjoyed blogging instead. But now I see the advantage of Facebook is that I can see messages from my friends as they write them- I don't have to be on their page, a little square pops up in the corner to tell me who has just updated, whether they commented on something I posted, etc. So I am in touch even while I'm typing.

It doesn't feel the same as logging though. It's like comparing an article with a headline, or a letter with a text.

Well that's ok, as I've had some lovely online conversations with people whilst there (you can send private messages, not just on your page.) But I do miss my blog, and being able to write longer stuff, and share more fully what I've been doing.

It will be hard to get back into blogging, but to start I thought I'd do an update on the week, each Friday.

I especially want to do this because I don't want to lose contact with good friends that aren't on Facebook, like for example, Angel & Kirby :)

I'm going to look over my blog layout over the next few weeks and have a cull on my links. I'm going to make sure the links are only to blogs owned by friends, or websites that really interest me. It isn't that I no longer judge any of them as good, it's that my interests, my amount of spare time, and my own artistic interests and style have changed.

I have a feeling about 50% will go. So if you like any of the links on the left, make a note of them quick!

Love, tea & cake,
