Field Expedient Repair – Or Not…

A perfectionist meets baling gum and chewing wire…

What, me blog?

Why blog? Because writing good comments takes too long. By the time I have the comment the way I want it, the post is old. (Note the bit about the perfectionist above.) It doesn’t help that some folks post three times a day.

You know how you can be discussing something and the responses don’t make any sense, and then you realize you aren’t on the same subject? No? Happens here a lot. I keep telling Linda that she should blog this, and she says I should get a blog.

Who, Me?  Well, I know what’s good for me, so here goes. (Sometimes that’s called knowing what side your butter is breaded on.)

    Ours is a mixed marriage. You’re Linux, I’m Windows. You’re Word Press, I’m Blogger. You’re…well…Welcome to the Blogosphere, where comments are king. No wait, content is king. Well, comments are pretty good too.

    Welcome to blogging. I know you’ll have a good teacher.

    WP isn’t as easy as Blogger regarding comments. As you can see, I have to leave my comment via my twitter account rather than my site. This is because I’m an unofficial WP member. I got in when they would let anyone join:~) Now, of course, I’m there, but my password doesn’t give access to leaving a comment at your site. You might want to include Google, if you can.

    My words of advice — Keep the content going, answer comments (some people will subscribe to get your replies), go VISIT anyone who comes to your site, but most of all…have FUN:~)

    BTW I love the header….the cat from outer space:~)

      Oops, sorry about the comments. Because I didn’t have a blog, I have always commented anonymously and signed my name, or just filled in my details the one time here on WordPress and never thought about the other options for identifying oneself. I’ll see if I can figure out how to add more options. I follow one blog where you must use OpenID to comment – maybe I can add that as an option, if I can’t add Google. This marks my first tentative step into blogging daylight – there are bound to be some bumps, bruises, and skinned knees along the way. I hope it’s not too painful for my readers.

      I love that picture of Sophie. It seems that I should have a picture of some repair operation going on, but I just like that picture. Thanks for commenting!

      update: I just tried to post this comment without logging in, and WordPress is complaining that the email address belongs to an account I’m not logged into, so I guess now I have to log in to be able to comment with that email address. Hmm – I definitely have to work on that.

    Why blog? Cause I can’t sing or dance.

      Have you tried line dancing? I find it’s much less embarrassing; it’s already choreographed and I don’t have to make up my own moves. You just need a way to do a 180 when you end up facing the wrong way…
