In the process of organising and moving links, I was surprised and saddened to see that at least half of the weblogs I used to follow are now closed. At first I thought this was evidence that blogging is dying. But as I explored new weblogs through Bloglovin, I realised it is mainly that a type of weblog is fading away. The small, personal, diary kind. Dreamers, drifters, artists and wonderers. Also, mothers who used to write about homeschooling but whose children are growing up now.

I often think how I can promote and grow my own little weblog, but today showed me that it's unlikely to ever happen. The majority of the blog-reading audience is looking for something different than that which I offer. Never mind, I shall continue to write, drifty and dreamy though I am. I love my audience.
In my e-travels today, I found some lovely things, and so would like to share them with you now ... it is a very eclectic list, I'm afraid! ...
