Is anyone there?

Is anyone there?

It's funny how summertime affects me even when there's no real reason for it to. For instance, my part time job carries on regardless of the season. My child isn't in school yet so there's no change in her schedule or routine. The only real difference for us is its...HOT outside!!

But we're affected because others are affected. Some of my friends are school teachers, so they're out for the summer. More potential for playdates that we don't get during the year. Also, its swim season, so we have chances to play in the pool at various friends' houses.

The downside, though, seems more prominent. Everyone is SO BUSY that nothing is the same online. Blog counts are down, bloggers aren't blogging as regularly during this busy summer season. The ACFW writers email loop I'm a member of doesn't have nearly as many emails cycling through because of the busy-ness and from people traveling, taking vacations, spending more time with family, etc. All worthy causes. Just makes me lonely! :)

I miss my online friends! Are you there? (helloo...helloo...helloooo...)

It does seem pretty quiet. I know that I'm guilty of slowing down on posts in the summer too.

I'm here! I've felt the same as you, though. Vacations, activities, divergent schedules...they all conspire against the online community.

Stay cool!

Yeah, I've noticed there are less comments in the summer. I'm mostly a lurker, but I'm still reading.
