Remember The Old Days (of Blogging)

Remember the old days when Pinterest was a collection of bloggers instead of magazines, retailers and websites? 
Ahhh - the good old days. 
I was perusing Pinterest for summer mantel ideas. I came across a pin by Debbiedoos. 
She hasn't blogged since March. She blogged only sporadically before that.

I'll admit, that I've been super busy and I haven't gotten around to all my favorite blogs. 
I was a little surprised to find that once prolific bloggers are not blogging anymore.
 I get it. 
It is a struggle to come up with new stuff to say.
There really isn't any explanation either as to why the person no longer blogs.
These are some of my favorites that are on hiatus.  

Debbie Doos
Faded Charm 
Northern Nesting
Simply Vintageous
Must Love Junk
The Essence Of Home
Nancy's Daily Dish
My Kentucky Living
Thoughts From Alice
Chateau Chic
Creating a Life
I'm sure there are more I could add to this list.

I'll be honest and say that I've thought about quitting. 
The truth is, however, that I'm always puttering around my house and garden so there will always be stuff to blog about. 
It just may not be as prolific as it once was.

As I was thinking back over the old days, I was reminiscent of some of the projects that made blogging fun.

Painted Furniture

Drop Cloth Everything!

Grain Sacks

Seasonal Decorating

Mason Jar Mania

Real DIYs

Inexpensive Kitchen Updates

Thrift Store Finds

Remember when we didn't need to almost be a professional photographer?
Remember when big bloggers actually visited you back and left a comment?
The good old days.
I miss them.
I think I'll start blogging like it's 2012!
Have a great day.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
P.S. If I've been bumped from your blog roll, can you please put me back on?
