How or why one writes a blog, is entirely up to that individual. Writing styles change as do reasons for writing.
For example, when I started, we lived a simple, frugal lifestyle. Not excessively so, just having an awareness of food waste and willy nilly money spending.
We had had almost 6 years of huge financial restraint (see our war diary) and although things were better, we still had a way to go before feeling we were out of that particular, restrained way of living.
When you have lived, cutting all spending to the bone, it stays with you. Well, it stayed with us. Again, I can't speak for anyone else.
Time has moved on and we still live a similar lifestyle, it just seems normal to us. We try not to preach about how we live, or suggest others do the same. You may or may not find my blog appealing, but at the least, hope you find some useful information on it.
I often wonder about changing the title but with many people reading each day - though few comment:( - wouldn't want them 'to lose me'.
We no longer live that hugely restrained way of frugal living but still live what we think of as frugal and simply. We menu plan, use food stock taking charts and most if not all meals and baking, are cooked from scratch. We make our own washing machine liquid (recipe has changed many times until the current one which we really like - thanks Mr. H. M.) White vinegar has replaced fabric conditioner and is also used amongst other things, to clean the house.
Yes, we have a light lunch out when on our walking days but that is our absolute treat. We are careful with our money and manage to save every month. We budget for changing the car (which we have just done), all our bills, logs for the burner, an annual holiday and gardening things. We have a small garden with raised beds to grow summer vegetables (plus leeks for winter), fruit trees and a fruit cage for soft fruit.
We have both worked hard during our lives but for now, I cannot contribute any money as I have to wait another few years for a delayed government pension. We live on the pension provided for DB. As we age, we hope our savings will allow for any help we may need in our own home rather than in a home, but who knows.
My blog is slowly evolving, but then, so are we. Yes, it still reflects mundane things, things that concern me or those around us, but it is primarily for my family members, so they can touch base with what we are up to. If it is also of use to others, then that is a bonus.
For whatever reason people give up blogging, that is their choice. Whether they choose to leave their blog up or take it down, is again their choice. I prefer the former but wouldn’t vilify a blogger for the latter choice. Each to their own.
