From a relatively new WordPressee. (Okay that’s not a word, so sue me)
I’ve been blogging for a while now.
Started with Yahoo 360 back in the day…
(Admit it, you hear the yodeling)
And lived through their horrible experiment Mash.
(Let’s not and say we did.)
Moved on to Multiply…
Which instead of proliferating like rabbits as the title suggests, died a slow death and left me adrift.
I found Blogster…
Which had a great platform but a disinterested owner who let it become rife with trolls and go belly up with technical issues.
Yes… I’ve outlived more sites than I care to admit.
So now I’m here, feeling my way around.
WordPress has some wonderful writers, and a plethora of blogs way more interesting than mine. ( Although if you’re into watching someone wage war with woodchucks and the occasional Tequila bottle, I’m your girl ) (Okay, more than occasionally… geesh.)
But I have to admit I’m not feeling the sense of community I felt with other sites. No one stops by to say hello, or welcome you with a pie. ( btw, I like blueberry )
I can’t even implement the time honored tradition of poaching my friend’s followers because they’re not listed here. (What’s up with that!)
I’m in the habit of reading a post and commenting… even if I have no intention of returning for a second helping. ( Pie reference again, apologies )
So am I jumping the gun…. expecting too much connection, too soon? Or is this really the drive by of blog sites? I know you’re out there… I see the visitor stats.
And hey, our blueberries are almost ripe.
If you stop and say hello…
I’ll bake the pie.
