Yesterday was a glourious day that felt more like early April than anything else. We took a little walk on one of our beaches here … this is called Saints’ Rest Beach. Thanks to the tides, there’s always sand to walk on. I love to go there — many times, just to sit and gaze at the ocean.
The saline air does something to my airways — breathing gets easier. Not that I have any problems breathing in the first place, but still … it somehow clears the nose.
«SALINE» is another of those words I was never sure of how to pronounce. Is it ‘say-line’, ‘sah-leene‘ or ‘say-leene‘?! I’ve heard all three variants — that’s what makes me hesitate.
Webster’s to the rescue! It’s ‘say-leene’! Hopefully, I’ll remember this now.
It’s interesting to read all the blogs that are partaking in this WordPress challenge. Last night, I spent a great deal of time with that after I’d watched HOUSE M.D.
Came across one, who had written about what would make her unsubscribe from a blogger. It was a very long post, and some … in fact, most … of the issues she had stated, made perfect sense to me. For example, ‘no interaction’ … you feel that you have no real contact with the blogger. Another thing was when a blog becomes so popular so that it gets hundreds of comments … then you sort of get lost. She had lots of valid points but it also made me think. She said something about narcissistic bloggers who have nothing to say but want to write anyways ….they have no information to provide?!
First I asked myself … «is that ME?» But then again … I can honestly answer that question with «NO!» Isn’t it all a matter of the purpose of it all … I’m not here to provide information about anything, this is a personal blog with smalltalk and photos . This blog is my pet, next to McDuff … I love, not only to write in it, but also to make it look pleasing to the eye. I can change it around as I want … change colors, backgrounds, graphics … you name it. I want to reach out to the online community … to other bloggers who feel the same way, who love to just share little bits and pieces of what’s going on in their lives … to meet new people from all corners of the world.
Came across another one who said that he spent two, three hours every day on this blog thing. That would make me feel terrible, it would feel like it was a chore instead of pure pleasure, as it is to me!
This wasn’t meant to be a blog about blogging … sometimes I just let myself go.
After the beach, I spent some time practicing shooting ducks in flight. I think I’ll always feel like a “newbie” when it comes to the camera and photography … always experimenting, trying out different things.
I never tire of the ducks … it’s amazing, really.
