I've been feeling left out of the blog community for a while now. Admittedly, I don't have as much down-time at work as I used to and I rarely have access to the computer at home. I used to drive into the office on weekends sometimes, just to express myself. I'm working towards remedying that soon, with a laptop purchase.
I try to support the blogs I follow. I read them as often as I can and leave short comments, or try to. Sometimes, I'll write a comment that is a more long winded and heart felt response to a post. Almost invariably, that will be the comment that gets a "failure" message or require that I join Google plus and give them the keys to all my contacts, including my business email list. I did once succumb to the temptation and found that Myeffingpony was connected to my professional LinkedIn account. I was horrified. Those two worlds are not meant to be mixed.
I'm alone at work this morning. I am ahead of my obligations and don't feel guilty spending some time trying to understand where all my friends went. (Did I mention I hate the changes to Gmail?). Well, mystery solved! One hundred and fifty of you must have been behaving very badly, as my Protective G-Deity had relegated you to spam. WTF? Am I not considered able to judge for myself? Apparently not.
I have a lot of reading to catch up on. I'm so looking forward to it:)
