hooked

I love wandering around the word press site. I wind up reading all kinds of blogs about all kinds of things. Then, if I comment, I click on the follow the comments buttons or subscribe to the blog. I find something in common or interesting in almost every blog I read. Needless to say, this has really increased my incoming email. For someone like me, who still thrills on getting an email, suddenly seeing 45 incoming emails for you is fun.

Fun for the first couple of days . . . . . until, of course, it sorta felt like work. I found a subscription manager page & had to let some of them go. Thank goodness a lot of them don’t post every day & they escaped the “unsubscribe”. It was hard to get rid of some of them. Hard, but I did it. I am in unloading mode these days. If  you are one of the two folks that subscribe to me, you already know this.

There sure is a world of bloggers out there. I’ve followed heart breaks, divorces, laundry & the most beautiful piece of cake in the world. Some of the bloggers are young, some are older. It’s all about senior year, my grand baby or what someone has for dinner for a week. I’m following the vacations of folks I don’t even know! I chime in on the comments.  I even wound up getting myself flamed for my (apparently) bad advice.

I mean, even I do it. I just write it, don’t really believe anyone else could be interested. They are all busy doing their own blogs & living lives full of African sunsets (some of the photo blogs are amazing!!), ranting, love & hot dogs while I carry on in my dog agility with my happy doggie, pilates with my happy friend & living with my bestest man I have ever known.

I’ve always kept journals & blogging is a natural extension of that, in this here new mileniumn. It still blows my mind that we can do this. Type a few worlds, throw a few random pictures & let the entire world look at it.
