I've been blogging since November of 2005.  Nearly 10 years!!!  Blogs have come and gone with the addition of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  Everyone seems to look for immediate contact...but those seem so fleeting?  I have struggled of late to post on my blog.  I seem to use my iphone for most of my picture taking and posting from the phone doesn't allow me to write posts when I have time and schedule posts for when I am busy!  Also, I have been hesitant to delete old blogs off my blog roll so I don't find myself reading as many blogs as I used to.  I keep thinking "maybe they will start blogging again, but most likely that is not true.  I know people put a lot of pressure on themselves to be creative, funny or entertaining and perhaps that could be why they stop?  Sometimes it is just life....always changing.

Anyhow, the photo is from the very first time I met a bunch of bloggers and lived.  They were not murderers, I did not get kidnapped.  I had a blast and remain friends with these ladies.  We have had many get togethers since this first one!   I have met so many and hope to continue to meet more!

So...I'm going to clean up that blogroll and ask for suggestions from you guys....who do you read?  Who can I add to my daily reading????

PS Mom just added your etsy business to her pinterest page. She's totally new at that so let her know if it's not appearing.

Congratulations Punchy on your 10 years! My reason for lack of blogging is time restrictions due to becoming an elementary school teacher. Right now, I am in my final semester of student teaching. The program I am in requires 2 semesters of student teaching. This semester is critical to me finding a job and getting my license to teach. I find my extra time going to my immediate family instead of my blog family. I may not comment everyday, but please do know that I read your blog and other pug blogs. One day, I hope to be back to blogging. Also, my laptop had to go in the shop twice in the past few years and this last time I lost my photo editing software, which I find essential so my pictures are somewhat enjoyable instead of awful looking. :)
I recently purchased Paintshop, and when I take the time to download it and learn to use it, then I should be back to blogging with pictures. :)
Love you and the puggies lots!

Ten years. Crikey ..... that's a long time, aye?? I've just had my 1st Anniversay. I sure hope I'm still here in 10years time. Mum and I read as many of the Dog blogs we can. Mum loves dogs of all breeds and loves hearing about them. I think you've just got to look for blogs that interest YOU. It's great that you have been able to meet so many other bloggers, aye??

Oh Punchy...what a good time that was back then. I miss every one of the friends. I hardly update but keep telling myself I will because I can't stand to not know what I was doing this time last year. I hope you continue to blog and if it's not every day, once in a while is fine, too. I never could get into FB. It was a bit too much for my liking. But now I don't know what's going on with friends. Miss you!!
