Do you notice what your friends have on their profile?

When I first came to myLot I was always checking people's profiles. I was always curious what other people wrote on their profile... I noticed that a few people had blogs... Most didn't, so then I was curious what the person found to write about on their blog, since I can't even find enough stuff to write about on myLot! (If I could come up with topics, I'd probably have more than nine discussions in nine months!) One of those people with a blog became a good friend... Her blog is the only one I've ever followed... I found, when she actually posted to her blog , that I got a good dose of common sense, usually something laugh worthy and most of the time, some beautiful photos! Today, one of her photos was of a hummingbird giving her a raspberry! (A bird after my own heart! LMAO!) IDK if this lady sends out one email to everyone or not, but normally the email announcing the new post on her blog is funnier than all get out, to boot! If I post the link to her blog will you recognize this lady?
They're all a blessin'. That knowledge that one's made't through the night, despite what pains'n sufferin' that may've endured the day prior. A "clean slate", per se, a chance to do better, to put...

i confess to ya that such's a wee mass mailin' to all 12 who were kind 'nough to subscribe :) i've a mailchimp thingy that'd make such purty, but've failed to figure that monkey out 'fter many months'f arguin' with't, lol. thanks fer the 'xposure, hon. folks've dropped like flies comin' to see the photos 'n such since i aint consistent with postin' there. i dribble lots 'nto the drafts, but 99.9% get deleted glad'ja enjoyed that lil juvenile hummer. i got lucky's she was drinkin' from the feeder 'n 'twas most pleased to've gotten her tongue. does look's though she's givin' me one though, eh? big hugs 'n love, my friend!

Hmmm... I've never heard of mailchimp, but if it would help I could take a look and see if I can figure it out and do a tutorial for you? Just an offer you can refuse if you want. I went looking at some of the other posts on your blog the last time you posted one... I was surprised that you had been seeing fewer and fewer people posting a reply to your blogs. I am wondering what they could possibly think is as worthy to take up their time as your blog?! (I confess to hoping you find a few more myLotters who enjoy what you talk about as well as your beautiful photos!) Uhm... I think I should also warn you that my daughter has said she will see if she can post your link on a couple of the sites she uses, too. (I know she said Reddit, but I can't remember what the other site is that she uses most. If she can, she will also try to help you a bit, too.) I am wondering about asking Pretty to make your avatar a split picture of that little lady hummer and your equine avatar... Pretty would have to be in the right kind of mood, but I could ask. LOL! I could always start telling people the hummer is your alter-ego! LMAO!

Yeah, @dpk262006, I am sure Crazy has a basket full of people who "follow" her, but if they are like the people who "follow" me, she actually sees one or two of them on her discussions and has no clue who the rest of them are! We can't all follow everyone. There is just not enough time in a day to keep up with that many people on any site! I keep thinking I am going to go through my followers and clean out the ones I have never met before but haven't had time to do that yet. As far as you know, sir, is there any reason at all I shouldn't drop off the ones I don't know/have never interacted with before? Uhm... I have seen people say they get notified when someone they follow posts a new discussion... Do you know where they are seeing those notifications at? I've never been notified when someone posts a new discussion. (I keep thinking the people who say that are seeing something else and are mistaken about what it signifies or else they may have gotten into my meds and are just confused!) Thank you for answering any of these questions you know an answer for. I appreciate that!

@sofssu I've never considered things like that. I like to know as much about the person I am talking with as I can/am allowed. I don't see much point in trying to talk to someone if I can't have a good conversation with them... (The way some people here interact is not my idea of a conversation. It MIGHT be considered interaction, but (sigh!).... ) Yes, I know I don't use this site the way it was intended, but I am not a "hit and run" type person. One person here had a good presentation about courts. I know a bit about courts and law, so I was intrigued. That person mentioned an aspect of the law and said they weren't sure what the law really was... I knew the answer, so told them.... I received a very disappointing comment in return.... I was told to please keep my responses/comments short as the author was not interested in reading three paragraphs when a simple sentence would do. (Uhm... have you ever tried to understand a law and explain it in a simple sentence? You can't!) I had commented several times on that discussion. None of the comments were less than three paragraphs. I deleted those comments. I haven't responded to that author's "discussions" again. That is not a discussion. That author wanted just enough from me/others to make money with and no more. I am not capable of interacting like that. So, I believe I do put discussions first. I am fundamentally incapable of not putting the discussion first. I suppose the difference is that with me the discussion is first, second, third and in about tenth place is that 1/10 of a cent we get for each comment/response/interaction we receive from someone else.

I am happy I could surprise you in a good way, Ruby! (Sure beats anything else I could say or do, huh? ) I just love talking with Crazy! I love the stories she tells and adore the pictures, too! I told her (quite some time ago) that I was collecting the pictures she has on her blog in a folder on my pc. I also assured her I wouldn't do anything with them except admire them. I am thinking about using some to make a coffee table book for my house, though. (She's fine with that!)

I don't even need to open the link to know who that gal is. I didn't notice her blog before but barely have time to spend here most days. I have checked out a few blogs in the past, but generally, it's easier to stay mainly here. Maybe when I get to retire or downsize in jobs or hours I can again check more of those things out and get active again with my own. This comment brought to you by, ChesneyM.

Hi Marsha! Yep! You are not alone in recognizing who owns that avatar! LOL! I might check out a blog, but I've never been interested enough in one to actually follow it before, and then keep up with it. There is one other blog I look in on once in a while. The author used to write on WebAnswers. She married a guy who was divorced with several kids and an ex who couldn't be relied on for anything except complaining that she never got to see her kids when she was the one who kept being a no-show whenever she was scheduled to see them... I kept encouraging both sides, hoping they could figure something out for the kids, if not for themselves. It turned out the absentee mom was simply interested in garnering sympathy while the step-mom busted her back for those same kids... It was crazy! (I still go read her blog posts once in a while and give suggestions/encouragement to the step-mom.) You are just like me... I don't have enough time for everything I want to do, let alone all the things I feel like I should do! I guess the time will come when we don't/can't find enough to keep us occupied... Not really looking forward to that, either! I am going to open your profile and look/see what you've been doing lately, Marsha! Thank you, @ChesneyM, for suggesting this post to some of your friends! I appreciate that!

@DaddyEvil Actually, this post wasn't found via a suggestion, but rather, via looking at her activity. And, I forgot to say earlier that you'd have more than a smidgen of discussions on your profile if you' hadn't deleted the smattering you had before. Also, it wasn't so much Lady's avatar I recognized, as for a minute there I thought it may have been the horse you were referring to, but once I looked at her 'voice' in the way she speaks, I knew who it was for sure.

I would have eight more discussions if I hadn't deleted those when I "left" myLot, which still aren't that many, considering I have been a member here for nine, going on ten months, right? (So, two smidgens? ) You think Crazy is really a horse? Just you wait until I tell her you said that, Marsha! Yeah, she can't claim anyone else writes like that, that's for sure!

You can tell she has worked on it for years! I would love to be able to go pay her a short visit, talk with her and enjoy sitting at the oasis and just see what happens next... LOL!

I know what you mean, Jess. I have accounts with different blogging platforms, with one, two or sometimes several posts on them, but none of them feel right. I wasn't comfortable with something about each one of them. (Yeah, I felt right at home on Bubbs, but we all know what happened there.) I guess I've finally stopped looking for someplace to call my online home, now. Something always makes me leave or at least not be comfortable with every one of them I've tried. (shrug!) Maybe the problem is always me and not the sites. I don't like to think that, but what can I do?
