Non bloggers never worry about stock photos and whether they are appropriate for the post they are writing/
They don’t worry about permission to use those photos or concern themselves with whether they are allowed to write about a certain topic.
They don’t ask themselves if they should pray to the gods of blogging to make their post go viral or hope that some magic entity will discover their writing and offer a book or movie deal.
Nor do they concern themselves with labels and wonder if they are a tech blogger, parent blogger, dad blogger, humor blogger or any other blogger label because it doesn’t matter.
They don’t worry about tech issues blowing up their blog or taking time they don’t have to research, pray and hope they can figure it out on their own.
Non bloggers aren’t approached by friends and family with requests not to blog about conversations or incidents they experienced together.
You won’t ever see them arguing with someone about whether a story they wrote is fiction of if they included parts and pieces of reality in it.
Nor will you see them worry, wonder, debate or argue about the value of comments and commenting on a blog.
Today I Need Your Help
Today I need your help because I am having some tech issues with the blog and I can’t fix them without your input.
Some of you have been having trouble commenting here and I haven’t been able to figure out why. I know it has happened because more than a few of you have written to let me know.
I turned off one of the commenting plugins because I am 90 percent certain the issue is tied into that particular plugin, but I would like to be able to turn it back on.
Because that plugin enables functionality that I think enhances the experience for everyone here.
Not everyone is affected by it, so I am a bit confused by what is going on and that is why I am asking for your help.
What I want to know is what browser you are using when you try to comment. Are you on a Mac or a PC?
Faking Your Own Death Is ProblematicÂ but figuring this out shouldn’t be, at least I hope not.
I look forward to seeing you in the comments.
Feel free to share your own thoughts about problems only bloggers have in the comments too.
I tell my kids we should be cognizant of the difference of big problems and little ones.
In the grand scheme of life this is a little problem, it is irritating but it is little. If it is the only one I have for the next 20 years I’ll be grateful.
But that is unlikely and since my AC hasn’t been replaced it is not, so it is 109 inside my house and I am no longer a lovable curmudgeon, but we’ll leave that alone for now.
Don’t feed the bear, he bites.
