I could not express this any better if I had written it myself. Many times I have felt ashamed that my entries have been so erratic, and I do MISS those of like mind who have been so faithful to follow the posts.
Back in my brief blogging heyday, I felt baffled and abandoned when a fellow blogger would vanish from my Reader. Not only did I miss the blogger’s words or photos, but I felt concern: had a crisis or illness prevented the blogger from posting?
