Discard the old

This was supposed to happen yesterday but the snow was gone and the soil was too dry so we didn't dare to lit the large pile of old boarders, debris and old christmas trees. I had this photo on my swedish blog Jaknell a year ago and then a wrote about how we want to clean up both inside and outside our houses when it's spring. But I also wrote about how I cleaned up my blog list.

At that time I  followed some bloggers, usually about design and home styling, but almost never sent a comment. Sometimes when I got tired of a site that I had bookmarked, I just dumped it. There were so many others that I liked more and wanted to follow instead. I never thought that I had any responsibility against the bloggers that I just say god bye to.

But now it's totally different as the bloggers I follow are much more interesting as they share more than just furnitures and style.  I get more interested in bloggers that write about different subjects and share their thoughts and small stories from their life. I think that's the reason why my blog is what it is.

Comments and emails has meant so much to me, but I'm also afraid that I will pay too much attention to it. It isn't easy, but I try to write and show photos of things just because they are important for me and not to count the comments.

But I am so grateful that there are someone who wants to follow me, in this world of millions bloggers.......

Ella I love my glimpses into your life on the other side of the world! This blog world CAN be a bit overwhelming at times...but I find that after taking a break here and there, I am always EAGER to come back!!! Spring does bring out our need to clean up and out!!!

Ella, I have enjoyed following your blog as well. Like you, I enjoy reading about other blogger's lives, their thoughts on a given topic and how perhaps we share a common way of thinking. I like blogs that have a wider view of the world, not ones that focus on a narrow topic. It's good to open ourselves to a world full of many ideas, visions and beauty. :)
