House cleaning

 I stared blogging in 2007 and it seems that I have either gotten, lazy, forgetful, nonchalant and  or distracted. I recently went blog searching and found one that interested me and was so glad that her blog was set up with labels so that I could quickly go to the areas I was interested in. It got me to thinking about my labels and was I ever sorry to see that many times I was not putting one or had multiples with different spellings and etc. so I have spent a bit of time trying to clean them up. I worked through to 2016 and then decided that was enough. What I hope it has taught me is that it is important to follow through. It also inspired me to go back and re-read all my posts and I found it to be as heart lifting as going  through an old photo album so if you find yourself looking for something to do give it a try. 

I discovered several other things in my looking back project, I have just settled in and no longer search for new contacts and new interests. There was a blog that I loved called Simple Joys. Her last post was in 2012 and then she was just gone. I still on occasion go back land look at her site and am always uplifted by her wonderful talent. I really believe she could have put her pictures and writings in the form of a book.  I went through her site again recently and starting looking for followers of hers and found 3!!! I am so excited to get to know these three ladies and have left them messages. I guess there is a lesson to be learned.....You get out of something what you put into it.

I never label my posts and I should! I've been blogging since 2008 and recently went through some old posts looking for something. It's fun to do, but somewhat melancholy to see those pictures of kids now grown!
I checked out Simple Joys. Her photography was gorgeous!

i have a "search" for my blog and that usually works well for finding things. i don't know how to add labels to my posts!! (hangs head in shame)!!!

i looked at "simple joys" and you are right, it is an awesome blog, with beautiful pictures!!

Debbie on blogger there is a place on the new post page to do that but maybe you use a different venue.

I find blog labels helpful when I find a blog post I like under a certain category and would like to read more of the same. I do label mine for the same reason. I imagine it must be a long and laborious task to go back and label old posts. You must have a lot of patience. :) Blessings to you.

Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment.
Fascinating to look at some older blogs. I always wonder what happen to those that don't post any longer.
