This blog needs to be kept from becoming stale, something that just irritates me about some others.
I speak of those that I discover, fall in love with and then......hear the internet crickets chirp...the cyber-wind whispering through the motionless circuitry branches amongst the computer chip landscape.....hear...nothing...read.....the same entry for MONTHS!!! After awhile, you stop checking in. Why bother?
So, when said blogger finally returns and has something to say...No One Visits to See!!! Picture their words boucing off canyon walls of disinterest. How sad is that?
So NOT going to happen to me.
There's one blog I visit frequently that tells us readers that there's going to be a hiatus....and an estimate of time it will last. I so appreciate that. There's another blog that actually has someone come in as a guest blogger so entries can continue. Its kept me coming back and I've enjoyed the two different writing styles.
I make this promise...it's in writing here so it seems to me that it's binding. If I think I'm not going to post for an extended length of time......I'll let you know..not just disappear.
It wouldn't be very smart of me to be my own pet peeve now, would it?
Another.... annoyance, is when a reader posts a comment ( or many comments over time)
and the comment is NEVER acknowledged. There was one blog where that seemed the case. And I repeat.."seemed".
Example: I followed this one particular blog for 2 months..(at least).. and just the other day... a blog entry was dedicated to ME!! Jumpin' Jelly Beans! Really! That just got me all warm and squooshy all over. So, although I won't see any responses...and I now accept that about this particular blog...I am content to "know" that my comments ARE read. I can live with that.
*ahem* No, I don't expect blogs to be dedicated to me now. It'd be NICE.....*grin*, but nope. It was a beautiful anomaly.
And for those that might think..."Hey, I didn't write my blog just for comments." OK. Good Point.
However, Blogger provides options to prevent comments from being left..or you can specify and tailor it for a "select" group of invitees. If you don't want comments at all...shut it off.
If you leave your options open, expect someone, sometime, to post a comment.
Consider it a compliment, not a hassle.
And I ask, as a courtesy, throw me a bone and say "Thanks for visiting!' How hard is that???
ALRIGHT! Someone's thinking.."I don't HAVE to DO anything! It's my blog. What law is there that says I have to say anything to anyone?!"
*smacks hand to forehead*
There is no law.
You'd be right.
BUT, courtesy is a wonderful component of a civilized human society. We ALL benefit with its use.
Now that I've vented...go on....I can take it. Throw your worst comments back at me. Tell me I'm being unrealistic or that I'm full of hot air, or get a grip......
But check back to my description under my Blog title.....this is also a place to use as a sounding board...and I just "sounded off".
Do I feel better? Yes..
If you've read all the way down to this point...THANK YOU.
In appreciation, I present this:
A little old lady goes to the doctor and says, "Doctor I have this
problem with gas, but it really doesn't bother me too much. My farts
never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I've farted at
least 20 times since I've been here in your office. You didn't know I
was farting because they don't smell and they are silent."
The doctor says, "I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next
The next week the lady comes back. "Doctor," she says, "I don't know
what the hell you gave me, but now my farts... although still silent..
The doctor says, "Good. Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's
work on your hearing."

Have a nice Thursday!
