Lesson Learned - I Hope

Tell me I'm not the only blogger that does this. I'll check out a blog and then a link and a link from a comment and then another link and before I know it I'm far away in cyber-blogville! Now that is not a bad thing. In fact, I think that it's a great way to find new and interesting blogs to visit. I have found some of my favorite blogs doing this.

My trouble is after I've gone deep into the abyss I'll find something wonderful like a quilt pattern or a recipe or a decorating idea. I'll naively think that I'll for sure remember what blog I saw them on. The quilt pattern - the recipe - the decorating idea. Notice how if you click on those it doesn't take you anywhere? EXACTLY!!!!!! How many times have I done that? I'm too ashamed to say.

My resolve (please, oh please) is to keep a tablet securely attached to my computer, or arm, or leg or whatever it takes, so I can make notes. Then all I have to do is quickly jot down notes and blog names and I'm good to go!

In the future if I do a post begging for any and all information on a particular subject that I saw on a blog that I can't remember, be kind. I'm fragile...........

That is so funny!I truly like to get lost like that I too have found many beautiful blogs that way. My bookmarks on my computer are so full because I am so afraid I will loose a page that I want so I bookmark it.
It was nice visiting you have a great week.

Ahh yes...the abyss of blogging. Once smitten, you could be lost forever and ever..page after page after page. I totally understand about not wanting to lose something. I started copying and pasting recipes and now have a pretty good collection going in a blog-eats file.

Blogging tis good for the soul....just keep bloggin'!

Yup. As they say, been there done that. I keep a notebook -- I'm currently on my second one since I started blogging. If I have a free minute, once in awhile I'll go back and read through it -- it's good to remind myself about all the good ideas I've run across. The thing that boggles my mind is knowing that for every little note I made there are a bajillion other cool ideas out there on blogs I haven't discovered yet.

I do this ALL the time! I hate doing that because I never remember how I got there when I go back. A solution maybe to save the page in your favorites, that way it will pop right back up when you want it! LOL!

I love where it can take you..
fondly, Deena

You are not alone....I do this sort of thing all the time!!!
I have learned to bookmark things I want to keep, but then when the list gets so long, I'm still a bit lost!!
I enjoy your blog; and I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Blessings,
Pam
