Bloglovin’ is on a new kick... only showing two blogs at a time.... to read more I have to keep reloading. How painful is that? I think I’ll have to check with Feedly again. However, that’s not the main theme of this post.
The question of making blogs private was recently raised by a blogging friend. Should she or shouldn’t she was her dilemma. Turning the question round, though, it means all her friends would have to log in before they could read her blog. Does anyone who follows private blogs find this an inconvenience? I ask because I was also thinking of making mine private to get away from some of the (sometimes) distasteful remarks I read before allowing comments to be published. I thank the powers-that-be for the ‘email notification’ facility but equally I would rather not have to read the rubbish that ends up in my email box. I would be grateful for your thoughts on this subject.
Why do some some people feel the need to aggravate us? Is it for kicks to brighten an otherwise dull life? There surely can’t be any gain! Whilst typing the above words I was reminded of an incident that occurred the other day. I had just left the Townswomen’s Guild building and was heading towards the car park which is near a school. It was that time of day when pupils were leaving the school in droves. As I neared the car park I encountered a small group (around six) of sixth form lads, one of whom made a ‘fancy you’ remark as he passed. I ignored it but was shocked to hear his next remark. He had waited until there was a good space between us before saying, in a loud voice, something which shocked me to the core. The diatribe included the word fornication which he apparently felt in need of. I cut him down to size with a cutting remark that emphasised his immaturity and he was laughed at by the other lads. What possible satisfaction could he have for uttering such an improper suggestion to someone decades older than himself?
