My blog behindness is so bad that even the old blogjams wouldn't work. Appreciated + adored mail arts have been hanging out on art tables, shelves, stools, chairs, the piano, and in to-acknowledge bins, to-blog bins, to-reply bins. They make the place look fantastic! They've also led to blog behindness panic attacks. Ack! Others who have had these know what I'm talking about. Today blogging will restart, in pretty much a random, casual, and gradual fashion; and the end will probably never be reached. I've always liked to blab on + on in blogs, but that can't happen right now, and many will probably be grateful. Whatever happens or doesn't, Thank You, one and all! Long live IUOMA.

It all goes in fits and starts, Terri, except for a very few always-faithful bloggers (Kat has to be one!). The main philosophy seems to be "don't sweat it" if it's a problem, and I try to believe that every day, haha. Whatever your intentions (and no doubt they're the best), just sending mail art when you want to is the most important aspect of the m.a. world.

There is a balance only in our dreams, I'm afraid. Not only blog behindness is chronic, as xx says, but any imbalance among the many mail art facets in our era. Sometimes I miss pre-1995-whatever mail art, and I wasn't even there! xx, your recent m.a. was scanned last night and is going into the next blog. Gradually and casually, as promised. :--}

This works the other way too. I am currently doing so much blogging that my snail mail is a trickle these days, and I have a ton of people I want to correspond with. There must be a balance, somewhere.

Nancy, I so feel with you! I have accepted now that blog behindedness is a chronic condition and I have to learn to live with it, so no point beating myself up about it. Making mail art is more important and yours is always appreciated!

Now that makes it real! Thanks, Angie.
