Long Time, No Blog

It’s been almost a month since my last post here and to be honest with you, I haven’t missed it. In the past when I’ve gone through lulls it was simply a matter of not having anything to say and refusing to post just for the sake of posting. This time seems to be different though. Those other times I still had a desire to blog here, this time not so much.

I’m hoping this is still part of the ebb and flow thing. Y’all know I still love me some Richard Armitage! In the meantime, I updated a wallpaper I made previously to incorporate one of the newest (to us) Robert Ascroft photos.



In an attempt to get writing, working on graphics and stuff again I’ve started a more general purpose blog where I can post anything. On the off chance anyone is interested, here is the link.

  1. Love the wallpaper! Like Doublemint Gum ads – Two, Two, Two Richards in one! 😀

  2. We all encounter ebb and flow. I’ve had so much going on in RL–some of it of the traumatic kind–I don’t post as much as I did at one time at my own blog. And I like the wallpaper, too. 😉

    • You have had a lot going on lately, Angie. I’ve read many of your posts and FB statuses and just wanted to give you a real hug.

      I’m starting to wonder if it’s the RL stuff that’s causing my lack of desire/interest in blogging here. I haven’t mentioned it elsewhere, but two weeks ago today was the fifth anniversary of my dad’s death. It hit me harder this year than usual, perhaps because five years is kind of a big one. Anyway, hopefully I’ll be back to my usual self soon.

      Sending you hugs. And I’m glad you like the wallpaper. 🙂

      • Yes, I have. Losing the third cat in 18 months and Jack still missing has been, well, stressful. Thank goodness the other dogs reappeared, although they are either down at the farmhouse or the cowpond right now. And working to get the production company off the ground has been very time consuming but it’s our financial future, so got to kept priorities straight. It was 10 years this year since my dad passed away and that seemed to hit me particularly hard, so I know where you are coming from. Father’s Day just makes me feel sad now. There are days when his passing still seems so fresh and I just yearn to see him and talk to him once again. Just one more time. So I send you hugs, too, my friend.

  3. I think I already told you how I feel about this wallpaper, but just in case you missed it the first time around: I love it, love it, love it!! ♥♥♥♥♥

    • Thanks for always being one of my biggest cheerleaders. I really does mean a lot to me. 🙂

  4. This is like a BOGOF offer…love it! 🙂

    Who wouldn’t want two Armitages?

    • Could you imagine if there really were two of him? I’m not sure our hearts or our ovaries would survive! 😉

      • Maybe not…but two of him means there’s more to go round! 😉 Actually that sounds like he’s a meal…on the other hand…no…not going there!! 😉

  5. You can only do what’s right for you, no sense in forcing it if you’re not feeing it at the moment. Que sera sera right? I’m heading over to take a look at your “general purpose” blog. Thanks for the lovely wall paper!

    • Exactly, I’m not really one for forcing something that isn’t there. The new blog isn’t much of anything yet. Glad you like the wallpaper! 🙂

    It’s that question of “Did you just have something to say?” or “Did you just have to say something?” I totally understand your quietness. I’m no less an RA fan than I’ve been since I discovered him those years ago, but there are just SO many discussions that can be cooked. He is, after all, just one normal guy who happens to live in the most beautiful tent ever created, and who is in the spotlight. But the topics seem to have been exhausted until more work is revealed (“Black Sky” or “Desolation of Smaug”). Even with the “Staged” release there doesn’t seem to be much news. Happy blogging.

    • Yeah, I guess I just don’t have anything to say and don’t feel (for the most part) that I have to say anything. I think the ongoing discussion of topics is natural. As more people discover RA and explore his past works the same discussions will be had because they are new for the newbies. I enjoy seeing that enjoyment and interaction with his works. I’m sure if I’m still in a funk by the time Desolation of Smaug comes out that it will be just the boost I need!

  7. I LOVE the wallpaper!

  8. LOVE the wallpaper, Jas! 😉

    Totally understand about the whole ebb and flow feeling. I’ve experienced it myself recently.

    *big hug* Handling the anniversary of your Dad’s passing is hard, and that’s expected. My Dad will be gone three years on July 15th. And with everything else that’s happening around then, I expect to be a bit of a basket case. (fair warning, folks)

    Take care of you. Write when you want to. We’ll be here, ready and willing to read! 🙂

    • Thanks, Zan!

      For your sake I really hope that you aren’t a basket case in July, although it will be understandable if you are. But we’ll be here no matter what. One of these days we’ll actually get to meet and I can give you a real hug!

  9. Very much like your edit. (And I rarely do like edits. So there. That merits a comment :-))

    Hi Jas, good to hear from you. Obviously again, nothing remains as it was before (something I’m also struggling with quite often). BTW like your wallpaper: our man looking so breathtakingly manly and sleek! 🙄
    Sorry, can’t stop myself from asking you: Is there still a chance that you will finish your „Maggie & John“ fiction?

    • Teuchter

      Ooh! I was going to ask the exact same thing! 🙂 It’s such a great story. In the meantime, thank you for the wallpaper. Needless to say I love it and have naturally “snaffled” it!

      Going though a bit of the same feelings myself lately. My feelings for Richard are the same but somehow I can’t find the motivation to comment on blogs as often as I have done. Now if that darned “Staged” DVD would just turn up – I’m sure that would help. 😉

      • I’m so glad you like the wallpaper, Teutcher. I’ve been minimizing all the windows on my laptop so I can stare at it. 😳 Hopefully the Maggie & John story will go forward at some point, but I’m not making any promises.

        It’s nice to know I’m not the only one going through this lack of motivation thing. I hope your “Staged” DVD shows up soon! I know you’re looking forward to seeing it.

    • Hi Linda. I have to remind myself that life is constantly moving forward and things change, even this blogging thing. I’m so glad you like the wallpaper. RA really is breathtaking and Robert Ascroft did such an amazing job of photographing him!

      As for the Maggie & John fic, I’m honestly not sure. I just haven’t had the motivation/inspiration to work on it, so I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up. That said, I would really like to move forward with it.

    Two Richards by the ocean, what fun.

    I checked out your new blog and hit follow. It is always good to branch out and try new things. I am thinking about maybe looking at taking piano lessons again, I did for a short time when I was younger but then did not have a piano to practice on. Music was always big in my life when I was younger, would have liked to learned to play an instrument then but it didn’t happen. All my boys have gotten to learn to play at least one instrument, one can play two. This will have to wait until I get done with school.

    This will be 10 years since my mom passed away, and yes the big ones seem hard. My dad is looking like it will be his time soon too. He turned 90 last Saturday and is not in the best of health. I was never close to them, but it still don’t matter as they still are my parents. I am also an only child, so when dad goes there is no one else.

    • I hope you do take piano lessons, Katie! Even though you have to wait a little while it would be so great for you to give it another shot. Especially as it sounds like something you’d really like to do.

      I’m sorry to hear that your dad isn’t doing well. I think no matter how close we are to our parents it’s always difficult to say goodbye. I imagine being an only child does make it harder. I didn’t really think it would be harder for me this year, but I guess it’s the milestone aspect of 5, 10 and so on. Hugs.

  12. Love the wallpaper. As for not always blooging t’s no big deal, we all get like that at times.

    Hugs re: your father.

  14. Everyone has already said what I would say so I will just send you lots of hugs.xxx (and Thorin asked me to send you one too)

  15. What a lovely wallpaper, bravo ! 🙂

    Lots of hugs re: your father.
