Hello again dear reader I would like to put readers but that may be a bit optimistic judging by my statistics. Why oh why did I use such an infernal soul breaking thing that has enslaved me? Sit closer dear dreader and lets continue the story.
I have already posted in the past about the joy of blogging so this must hence be named the joy of blogging part two, catchy title eh.
The story may be familiar to you and if so feel free to share and delight me with your own words of wisdom, be they waspish or wonderful. My foray into this world of blogging was born like many others by the blog service provided by google or as I shall now call it the big G, why did I commence this path? I suppose like many others I wish to write and more importantly perhaps be read. Sadly I am lacking in the time department meaning the world will have to wait for my well received novel until such time it is written.
Blogging seemed to fill a crack in my soul, not quite the same , but nether the less it provided some relief from my writers craving, like an electronic nicotine patch. I filled a few posts with words and published them to the electronic ether and like those that had gone before me became shocked at the general apathy in the world of the web at my creations. I it has to be said felt somewhat foolish upon realising that the blogging scene is what one calls a bit full.
So time being limited I reached a crossroads, which path should I take? Was blogging but a dead end of blackness and disillusion? Should I forge ahead using what can only politely be described as the limited freebie service from the big G? Or go that one step further self hosting a blog with the bells, whistles, plug ins and seemingly endless widgets of word press?
My friends who had indulged themselves in the bald ones rantings spoke of pleasure as their eyes caressed the flickering screens, but truly can friends be un bias? Doubt entered myself like a slowly spreading virus. Then I received help from an unexpected source, a kindly gentleman from a country a great distance from my own whose blog not only inspired me but fed the embers of possibilities further.
He took the time in what surely is a busy life (don’t call me Shirley) to look at my foundling efforts and spoke kindly of content whilst offering guidance upon the design.
Frustrated even more by the big G the decision was made thus and I leapt into the freedom of self hosting and wonderful widget wordpress and after around eight hours of technical support from my patient page providers I finally feasted my eyes upon the bare carcass of my new blog.
So stuff the the stats! I shall I shall continue on this journey and hope others may join me along the way.
Thanks again to my inspiration and his splendid blog, if you enjoy my humble efforts offer him a humble thank you under your breath if you don’t enjoy these finely crafted words then its all his fault!
