I'm always a bit perplexed when people respond to the subject of blogging with a "NO, I DON'T READ BLOGS", accompanied by a recoil, as if even mentioning the word "blog" will precipitate an outbreak of leprosy.

There are a lot of really boring blogs out there, though. Painfully boring. And I admit that I avoid those.

My goal is to bring to my readers a snooze-free experience. Don't always accomplish it, yet the effort is continual.

Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Oh, I do agree!

    Yours is definitely not snooze-inducing.

    I have seen that reaction to blogging a number of times. It gets my back up. They don't know what they are missing. There are some very articulate, well thought out blogs and it's a shame there's still somewhat of a stigma around the medium.

  2. "as if even mentioning the word "blog" will precipitate an outbreak of leprosy"

    Is that what happened? I didn't think there were blogs when you were a kid.

  3. I love reading blogs but I have to say that I don't like the word- blog- very much. These days, I wish that I could spend more time in 'blogland', reading and writing, rather than deal with some of what fills my days elsewhere.

    I think that people find it easy to dismiss things that they don't understand or even know about. It makes for a simple way of life. After all, what you don't know or understand doesn't affect you- does it?

    Keep on writing and I'll keep on reading.

  4. The word 'blog' is boring.

    I call mine online journals.

    They are kept for me (though only for non-private matters, obviously) while hoping not to bore silly anyone else who happens by.

    Yours is always worth visiting because it is beautiful, kept by a poet and artist.

    Love, C.

  5. Yours is one of my all-time favorites....NEVER a snooze-fest!

  6. Just for the record, I WAS NOT trolling for compliments. You all are too kind!

  7. Must point out that people who don't read blogs will have missed your hilarious post about texting for soup. I'm still crying.
