As the anniversary of my blog approaches I've been pondering whether or not to continue. I don't like a lot of the changes that Blogger has made. Many bloggers have disappeared - have they moved to another platform, taken ill or worse? Every day there are more blogs on which I am unable to leave a comment - I feel like I'm lurking. 'No reply' comments are becoming more frequent - I feel impolite when I don't reply. Blogger has decided that some comments shouldn't be sent to my inbox - this apparently depends on what email service the commenters use. The 'social' aspect seems to have disappeared. Sometimes blog posts, mine included, are more like show and tell, a 'look what I made' - I'm uncomfortable with that. I don't like the blogs that are always trying to sell me something - most of these I have discontinued following or reading.
I have decided I will play it by ear and continue blogging for now. Please do not feel obligated to leave a comment - if you read my blog I am content with that. Sometimes it's difficult to know what to comment on a post - I've been there, done that.
And since I know that there has to be an enticing/interesting photo posted to attract one's attention, I'll share these polar bears that I made ages ago ......
