So. I've had a bit of a blog spruce up in an effort to get back into this whole blog thing. They that the effective life of a blog is five years and I must say I've hit that wall pretty hard. A lot has changed since 2009. These days I rarely seem to open my laptop and use my iPhone and iPad o interact with like-minded souls all over the world in real-time using Instagram and Twitter. Blogger seems so old fashioned now with its HTML, uploading and linking (don't get me started on how difficult it is to even comment on a blog!) but I can't quite bring myself to abandon ship. Many of the bloggers I used to follow have jumped ship ahead of me although I have re-connected with some of them on new platforms so I'm still in two minds.
Having said that Instagram and Twitter have introduced me to some interesting new blogs like Mandarine's where Melody walks me through the forest of Latvia and shares her gorgeous knitting projects; Miriams Kafferaps where I get an insight into the vintage scene in Stockholm; and Gracia and Louise where I see what a truly authentic creative life looks like so maybe there's life in the old girl (and this one too!) yet. We shall see...
