Some would say it’s a milestone–reaching the 4000 follower plateau. I appreciate those, faithfully following this iterantneerdowell’s creaky, Conestoga, word wagon, down the dusty trail.   My efforts are just a drop in the bucket, compared to some bloggers. I’m not running a race; only trying to have some fun–writing and interacting with other like-minded bloggers.

Trying to hurt someone’s feeling in the process, is the farthest thing from my mind. And, at the same time–I shouldn’t have to feel like I’m walking on eggshells, for fear of offending someone. Normally I write, rewrite, revise, rewrite again–it’s an OCD thing. But, anyway, this is what’s on my mind this morning. BTW–what would a greeting card, or a termination letter for a blogger asked to leave WP, look like?   I know, it’s not funny–nor, did I intend it to be.

I’m not acquainted with those in question, or know the circumstances, but I wish them well.  Please, make this stop, before I break out in song. let’s see–I could do “Feelings,”  “Alone Again, Naturally,”  “All by Myself,” wait, here’s a good one; “One is the Loneliest Number.”  Please make up your minds–because, I’m retired and, do have other things to do–like going fishing, or playing tunes on my trusty guitar.


You say goodbye, I say hello
Is there anybody out there?
Where did everybody go?
Maybe their tongues are frozen?
Because it’s thirty-three below?
Maybe there’s nothing new to say?
Or they don’t know what to do?
And I know, that’s not true!

    1. I’m still scratching my head over that one. I’ve not followed a lot of blogs, because I feel it’s necessary, to read their posts once in a while. If there are too many–I can’t keep up. One thing I’ve observed, is that, people seem to have a fear of liking too many posts & too many blogs. I don’t understand why that would be a problem.

      1. I am only guessing here, but maybe they don’t have enough time on the computer to read very many or they feel obligated to read each and every post that person puts out (and some publish 5-10 a day!!). I admit I follow a lot, which is why I’m always apologizing for being late or having missed one, but I feel we have a great bunch of people over at Pacific Paratrooper that get involved and help to make that site partly their own. [You should know – you’re one of them!!]

      2. Thanks, you know this is something near and dear to my heart. You understand the effort required and I’m glad to help. I’m keeping my eyes on the prize–so to speak. Trying to stay away from unnecessary negativity.
