From a frosty window

Missing you all so much! Missing the writing and reading, but I'm hoping for some kind of changing!

The blogging have given me so much. I think it's easier for me now to understand English, but that has also resulted in something scary. I'm more fearful to write now than I was in the beginning. I'm so afraid of using wrong words.

So the scary feeling about the language is one of the reasons why I haven't been writing since september. I have the words in my head but I can't get them "on the paper". But I'm not alone, some others have also stopped writing during 2013. I wonder so much about some other of my favorite writers, where are you? And what are your reasons? 

As Ms Becky. I've been visiting her "blue door"so many times like an old friend visiting someone and hoping that someone will open the door and ask me to come in.

I was so happy to see your post Ella! Please don't worry about making mistakes, we all do. I could never find the courage you've shown in taking on this challenge to learn our language. I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Yes Ella, you must not worry about mistakes. We all make them. I know I haven't blogged due to a new job, lots of other obligations and time just didn't present itself. I've made a vow to at least post once a month and here I've posted 4 times already this week! Welcome back. Don't be afraid. Love, Nelle

Thank you, giving us a sign that you are all right. I was afraid that something is wrong with you and your life. Such a long time nothing moved here on your blog.
Last week I found a new posting in your swedish blog Kalfträsk, so I hoped that you will also continue writing here.

Don't be afraid in making mistakes. I like so much to read in your blog, to see the photos, to "feel" your land and your culture. Please carry on writing here.

I watch also the pictures on your other blogs without understanding the text. Perhaps, some day, I'll understand a little bit or your language.
Love ML

Lovely to see you, Ella! I think the blogging ebbs and flows...for 3 years, I barely took a break at all, but this year I have slowed down. Partly because some of that time and energy goes to Instagram, partly because I have been dealing with some "stuff" and lacking positive energy and maybe just.... I don't know, just because. So we'll see where it goes this year. I'm not going to beat myself up if it doesn't come naturally. And, yes, it's amazing what you have done, given the language situation - You are to be commended! I think this is a very forgiving community and no one cares a bit if you make a mistake - we love you anyway! 8)

I find I get caught up in other things but I ALWAYS miss blogging! As to your English...I find it EXCEPTIONAL so I do hope you will continue!

Hope you are WELL!
