boston fencery

So - I went out last weekend and took lots of photos
- downloaded them to my computer
-installed updates
- and -Crash!

Ummmm, yeah, my mistake was installing the updates...
Not good...

So anyway - I found this photo of a some Boston fencery on my iPhone
I took it while out walking earlier this week - can you see the signs of Spring?
I've always liked these old brick apartment buildings
- and the way that in the midst of a busy city, you can find quiet tree-lined streets

and that whole computer thing? - yeah, we'll see - grrrr

random five - those blogging moments

As bloggers, we recognize that there are probably as many reasons to blog as there are bloggers.
Some blog about a topic they're passionate about, some are building their blog to become a source of income, and some have no real clue why the heck they're blogging.
I bet you can guess which category I fit into...

and when life gets hectic - as it often does - I think to myself
"time to throw in the towel"

but then - I remember those blogging moments.
We all have them - the things that keep us going.
Here are a few of mine

That moment when I got my first comment that wasn't from a family member.
Remember that rush?

That moment when someone I didn't know was following me, mentioned 
something in conversation that they only would have known from reading my blog.
- And that shy smile that follows with the comment "I love your blog, I check my feed every day"

That moment when it dawned on me that a blogger I had been following is following me back.

That moment that I realized that within the huge world of blogs,
there are friendly little neighborhoods of bloggers.

That moment when I found myself thinking about other bloggers as friends.
I hope she had nice weather for her son's wedding...
I wonder if her daughter had her baby...
I hope he has fun on his camping trip this weekend...
I hope his move goes well...
I wonder why she hasn't posted in a while - I hope she's well...

So - those are five of the aha moments that keep me from giving it up.
How about you? I'd love to hear your memorable aha blogging moments!

(Oh yeah, the photos have absolutely nothing to do with anything - they are from last month
 - Grafton, Vermont - a truly quaint little village!)
