Ok ok ok .......the cat's out of the bag anyway because I told Pus about my blog. So Pus=Steve.
I don't know if that's true about "proper bloggers" anyway; what I said in an earlier post about not using real names to protect the innocent. I spent this entire, gray day inside (except for the walk I just went on) reading other people's blogs and tweaking my little nascent blog. Man, whoever made up the word "Blogosphere" was not overstating the case--there is a veritable gigantic sphereical PLANET jammed with ka-zillions of bloggers out there!!!!!! I am sufficiently humbled.
You've probably figured out by now that I have come to blogging by way of throwing-myself-off-the-end-of-a-pier-to-learn-how-to-swim route. If I ever read a blog before I began writing my 6-day old blog, I don't remember it. There are a lot of very hip & cool bloggers out there and after today, I've realized I have a LONG way to go before I'm either, much less both. That said, a lot of these "hipsters" use real names, so I suppose I can too if it strikes me. On my honor, I promise to ask permission first if any of you out there are afraid I might stick you with a name like "Pus".
My friend MEC has told me no less than 8 or 19 times in the past forty-eight hours, since I first introduced Pus to my readers, that she hates "Pus" (the name, not the guy) and that reading it makes her up-chuck every time! Which surprised me because I know it's gross but it's unique and plus there's Puke and Phlegm ........
Have you noticed the nifty "Reactions" widget (blogging word for cool little thing to put on your blog) below each post? I changed the reactions today to 1) I like 2) made me laugh & 3) I can relate ......since none of you have been mean enough to check off "sucks!" which was sweet of you, and since Miss Delicate Flower, friend MEC, also pointed out to me after up-chucking that she doesn't like that word either. I'm all for constructive criticism however and I have to admit she may have a point. However .....(Good writers try to use this conjuntive adverb as little as possible--I just used it twice in two sentences! Ha!) ....I reserve the right to use the word "sucks" occasionally in my blog because it's a perfect word for such occasions and I long ago got over being offended by it.
So to the point--for the next 24 hours (after which they go back to See Above), I'm going to change the Reactions widget again to 1) Pus? & 2) Steve? ...for you dear readers to register your preference. Fun! And I will honor whichever wins giving first dibs though to Pus/Steve if he has a strong preference. Fair enough?
PS--btw it changes ALL the Reactions on ALL the posts to Pus? or Steve? so .......I'll get them back to normal tomorrow at this time after the Pus? Steve? poll results are tallied!
