OK so if you read my blog I’m sure you know I”m not techy. In fact it is a small miracle I have a blog. I don’t want to even tell you how many months it took me to figure out how to embed a link <shudder>
so please please please I need your help. I have an idea for a blog hop but no idea how one makes a button or sets that sort of thing up.
oops I feel asleep putting Little to bed and now I’m awake. This does not bode well for tomorrow yet here I am so I might as well do something other than toss and turn in bed.
It’s just as well that I didn’t write earlier. I was in a foul mood. Now that I have had a 4 hour nap or so I feel better but I thought I would share some of my personal quirky self-imposed rules of blogging.
I will not blog angry (that often) Every now and then a girl needs a good rant to get stuff off her chest and out there in the ethos. very often those rants are met with virtual hugs and lively discussion. This is fine if it is on occasion but in general I don’t think it is a good idea to blog angry. This is for several reasons. One the internet is ink. you can’t take it back no matter what you say. It will live out there forever. Years later your children s friends will Google you and what will they find. Another reason is I am blessed with a memory that is less than stellar. Which means in a few weeks I may have forgotten why I was angry so no reason to put it out there to remember for all time. And lastly I don’t want to read (or be around someone) who is constantly complaining so I try not to be that person.
I will not use Little and Hubs names or pictures. This is MY blog. I do it for me. They didn’t agree to be part of it. Hubs is not pagan by any stretch of the imagination. He probably thinks what I do is “cute” but he doesn’t feel the need to be involved. Little on the other hand is too young to be fully informed and give her consent. Yes I would love to post adorable pictures of her wearing her birthday crown or climbing a tree but I wont. When she is old enough to be a guest blogger she can let me know if she wants me to use her pictures. Again years later her friends will Google her and they don’t need to find ALL that.
Along those same lines I will not speak of anything like potty training or melt downs or bad days at work. All of that can stay in the family it doesn’t need to be shared.
I will not blog about something I know nothing about. Nor will I pretend to be the end all authority on something. I have opinions and I have a fair amount of knowledge. That said so do other.
What are your do’s and don’ts? Do you have quirky self-imposed rules too?
