I am not politically motivated in any way. I do love my homeland and often worry about the turn our government is taking, but I generally keep my opinions to myself. My head is not in the sand. The nearest I have ever come to making a public statement about my political preferences was on MULIEBRAL VIEWPOINT last year and the only two comments were sage.
Opinionated Man had some good advice today about controlling the comments on his blog—Harsh Reality. These two suggestions, plus the comments that follow show what every new blogger should know. I dared to comment on his previous article about feminists—hoping nobody I actually know reads what I said.
Hoof Beats and Foot Prints had a great article, “Worth the Wait” about a cat watching the bird feeder. The actual point of the article was that the photographer and the cat were both watching for a particular bird to appear, but the cat was so pretty and the mention of him made several, including me, comment on the cat instead of the bird. Oh, well.
SAPPY AS A TREE posted an article entitled Dear Miss Alcott. I feel connected to that writer. Forgive the bad grammar, but she is me. Do you ever feel that way about some stranger you meet online? She is a much younger lady than I, but her interests and her ideas mirror many of mine. She has another blog called WRITE OUT OF DARKNESS. Be sure to read that one too. I would elaborate, but why should I steal your joy in discovering her?
Finally, because one buddy, who could easily be part of the Blogging 101 dream team, kept after me, I have changed my TWENTY 10 theme for a “user friendly,” or as he put it, “a responsive theme for better viewing on mobile devices.“ I do not own those expensive hand-held gadgets, but I must live in this modern world where others do. It is obvious that I should adopt a theme to meet my readers’ needs.
Among other things, I cleaned ants off my kitchen counter today using glass cleaner. I will see whether that is as effective as HIT chalk. I made breakfast for my husband, did two loads of laundry, fed the dog we recently adopted, pondered the mess an abandoned puppy made in our entry and was thankful we were able to find a home for the less than pint sized baby after only 24 hours.
Have a good day and blog on.
