In Swedish we have a saying that goes like «Sour, said the fox about the rowan berries!», meaning ‘as he couldn’t get to them he said ‘too sour’, and walked away … like he didn’t want them. The above might sound like that LOL… but I assure you, it isn’t so 🙂
Every now and then, when I see some post that looks interesting to me, personally, I click through and read. Then, when I see that the post got like three hundred comments, I choose to refrain from commenting. The way things stand now, here, in my own blog is just fine. How personal and how much room for interaction would there be with three hundred people, or more?! I’m very happy about how this has turned out for me, and I’m grateful for the Daily Post-challenge. Had it not been for that, I think one would have felt a little lonely here at WordPress.
Back in 2005, I was blogging in Yahoo’s project Y360°. In the beginning there, my page got featured on a page, similar to Freshly Pressed. I got a hundred and twenty five new ‘followers’, in one fell swoop. At first, that felt extremely cool as I was new to the whole concept, but in the long run it got hard to handle. The Y360 was much more of a community than anything else, and making the rounds, commenting on hundred and twenty five blogs got … time consuming, to say the least.
The pictures above is from yesterday’s trip to Darling’s Island. The day was incredibly warm and sunny. At first, we stopped to look at the Canada Geese and their goslings beside the highway. We had no plans at all, really but continued on … I’d never been to Darling’s Island and Gerry had not been there since he was a kid, fishing with his dad.
The river you see there, is the lovely Hammond River, which at some point, merges with Kennebecasis River.
We crowned off the day with hamburgers at A&W in Quispamsis … or possibly Rothesay — I’m never sure if I am in one or the other … they’re so close.
I can’t believe I find myself sitting here typing at this time. Woke up, felt good … completely rested, turned on the coffee machine, washed … then I happened to look at the clock: 05:40AM!!! Thunder & lightning overnight … now the humidity is probably close to 100%.
