I lost one

And I'm ok with that

I lost a follower.

I had 11 in the morning, and by evening I had 10.

What does that mean?

Am I that boring?

Is my simple life of motherhood too mundane rather than the occasionally inspiring piece of the internet I hope it to be?

Or did someone just decide to stop following because they didn't have time, or did I hurt their feelings, or did some cataclysmic event happen that prevents them from reaching their computer?

I don't know the answers to these questions.

But it has caused me to ponder my blog and why I write it.

Partly it is to keep a record of my life with my husband and children.
On some occasions it is for me to share whatever thoughts are trapped in my head and need to get out.
While at other times it's just for attention when I feel especially witty.

But ultimately it's to feel that I have a presence that isn't only physical. That somewhere my thoughts to words are recorded and kept, cherished by the few who give a darn about my little world.

Obviously that's not for everyone. So to the follower who no longer finds me worthy of following, I wish you well in your search for a blog that feels worthy of your time.

To the rest of you, I love you. Seriously.


  1. I bet their computer was either hijacked or repo'ed... Crazy economy :)

  2. I seriously love you too... and your blog. You are too kind. I probably would have gotten all bitter and been like, "Your loss, sucker. I don't need you either...stupid-head". So cheers to your civility.

  3. More room for those of us who truly enjoy reading about your life and that of your family every week!! Keep up the good work!

  4. p.s. i read your blog everyday. :)

  5. Hey Amy! I'm just tuning in since I just found your blog. We missed you and Jeff at dinner a few weeks back. It was fun catching up with Maile and Laura. Sounds like life is good for all. Hope to see you and yours sometime soon!


  6. This has happened to me 2 times and both times it was a blogger glitch. Both followers emailed and let me know. Maybe that's what happened with you...
