TO MY BLOGGING FRIENDS AND OTHER DROP-INS, FRIENDS IN THE MAKING.
Some of you, as do I, believe that we are providing a ministry to the Lord by our efforts here on Word Press. Others are interested in helping others by sharing their own story, information, and/or advice. Others are endeavoring to promote books, business, or other merchandise. Some want to rant. Others are looking for entertainment or friendship. And some are doing all of the above.
Whatever your motivation I say welcome to my space. I do a lot of “likes,” because I like a lot. I do “likes” for many reasons: Outstanding ideas, Fantastic content, Creative style, Agreement, Original thoughts, Unique poetry, Inspirational encouragement, Terrific Vocabulary, Picturesque talent, and other stuff that hits my fancy. My “likes” do not mean I agree, I might or I might not. If I do not I might say so in the comments section. I “like” even though a blog is not grammatically correct because I encourage effort, besides I do not know a person’s background. Perhaps English is not their native tongue. I like anyone who tries a second language, even if it is not perfected. It is more than I can do!
I love comments. I’m not alone in that. I like interaction with bloggers and make friends that way. Answering comments is my first priority. If I am days behind on reading and have to delete, I scan to be sure I have found my “Comments” responders.
Now what I don’t do. I do not continue more than a few days with people who use profanity except if I feel that God wants me to minister to that person in spite of the way I cringe. Most often profanity is just used to add emphasis, shock, ignorance or laziness because a writer doesn’t care to use a proper vocabulary to express their thoughts.
I seldom follow bloggers who write long blogs, more than 800 to a thousand words. I might scan long articles, and I might leave a “like” but not often. It might be my age, but I doubt it. Mostly it takes too much time and/or I lose focus. I never leave “likes” if I do not read – or as I said, scan long articles. There are a few of you reading this who write long blogs, so you know I can be snagged even though the blog is long. I even thoroughly read some instead of scanning!
You will find that I write a variety of styles and subjects. I love poetry: Dr. Seuss style, nursery rhyme style, limericks, or prose with rhyming and alliteration. I don’t try prose poetry probable because I don’t have a knack for it.
Welcome to my blog. I appreciate your visit, reading, and commenting. Please leave me something to let me know you have been here. Almost every day I have about thirty percent more views than visits and I have about three times as many visits as likes. No problem there except that I cannot read everybody’s blogs. I try to get everybody read at least three times a week but that is beginning to be impossible for me, so I have to delete. I do not want to delete my readers, so please let me know if you are there/here. 😀
Five hundred forty-eight words. I’m stopping because you are also busy and have too many to read. See you tomorrow probably!
