Today I was browsing a few of my regular blogging sites, also a few new one, when I came upon a Canadian one, who mentioned this word Lurkeing. Apparently (in the blogging world) this word means people like me who pop into loads of different blog sites without leaving a comment, this shows on lots of sites (those that have them) blog counters, but they don't actually know who the visitors are.Now apparently some bloggers have a "anti lurkeing" week, attempting to encourage people to stop and comment. This got me thinking, yes I do personally visit lots of blogs but I only stop and comment very occasionally, so why?. Firstly for me, the time element, to stop and comment on every blog site I enter would leave me no time to write my own. Also the content of that particular entry may not interest you/me. Those sites where you have to enter not only the jumbled letters but log into an account as well I try to avoid, mainly because personally I think it unnessary, and secondly because I have 23 different sign in names and passwords to different things ie Flixter, Google, MSN, Facebook, E-bay, pay-pal it goes on and on, So to sign in on these sites I have to go into my drawer find my book and look up all my log ins(my bloody memory, age is it?) .Now my very very pet hate is (and I NEVER EVER comment on these are) the sites that comments have to be vetoed by the author, ok you may have your reasons for this but they do not wash with me, I believe if your big enough to write a blog you should be big enough to stand critism, (blogger will remove bad language etc) or in the case of some bloggers that are so full of themselves they dont want you to be showing a comment that could lead readers to your own blog. Now I hope this has stirred a few of you out of your chairs enough to, send me some comments PLEASE, I dont mind what you say, but comment.
PS. Does anyone out there know how or if you can put on the old blogger a list of the sites I visit?.
JOKE OF THE DAY.
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No," said the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
If this posts joke does not display properly I have redone it three times but dear old blogger wants it this way!!!!.
