How happy I am that it’s Gay Friday again! I’ve had a couple of crazy busy weeks at work. I’ve been organizing a series of events with performances around art and religion, which drew quite a public and also the attention of the media (even from national television *gasp*). This week we had the last in the series of event days and now I hope to get my life back *g*.
By that I mean my book and blog life of course. ;)
Speaking of blog life and blog hopping: Sophia from Fiction Vixen has a post today, ‘Why I’m not commenting on Your Blog’, that could’ve been written by me (if I were as eloquent as her, that is), lol. It’s about being a comment slacker, which I definitely am, as you might know.
It’s not that I don’t want to leave a comment, I just don’t have much time (and patience) and… okay, I’m lazy… So Sophia’s reasoning that bloggers should make it easy to leave a comment speaks to me very much. Especially Captcha drives me nuts, I never get it right. A lot of Blogger sites use it and are probably not even aware of it. I turned mine off a while ago and I can honestly say that spam is caught by Blogger 99% of the time.
Something else that’s likely to drive me away, occurred today again. While I wanted to leave a comment on a blog, it made me log into a commenting system first, in this case my gravatar/Wordpress account, of which I couldn’t remember my password of course. Frustrating.
Well, making it easy to leave comments does help, but I have to be honest, it’s not going to be a guarantee that I stop being a comment slacker. Because it won’t fix my problem of chronic lack of time... Sadly.
Anyway, let’s see how much blog hopping I get done the next couple of weeks. I hope lots! :)
Happy Gay Friday everyone!
