…doesn’t mean we’re engaged
I drop in and out of blogland as the fancy takes me, or as long as my boredom threshold will allow.
I use blogsville to try and mentally jar some inspiration for my writing. I am unable to sit on the toilet until the elusive spark arrives and too much time spent gardening…one of my favorite pastimes will invariably see me fall off something high up or into something sharp and cactus- like. Talk about the pricks of conscience…I end up just feeling a p… well you get the picture.
Anyhow, because of my penchant for suddenly disappearing I was wondering if this may be why I don’t have such a huge fan base?
Let me expand on that…
I get ‘likes’ ( but not usually comments) from Christians. I mean for their god’s sake…why? It’s not as if I ever say anything complimentary about religion or its adherents, now is it?
So I began to figure it out. They like my post so I will visit theirs and lo and behold there is this christian post about morality, walking with the Lawd Geez- Us and admonitions about how I should consider it a blessing that I wear glasses as this is god’s way of warning me I should stop now in case I go blind.
And when you want to comment on their posts your comment is Awaiting the Moderator or worse…goes straight into SPAM. This makes me strip! I could become a Muslim just on the off chance I might get to blow shit up. Think of all those virgins, Ark
But what really baffles me is when I get a ‘like’ – and it is usually only one and they are never seen or heard from- from someone called Ho Chok Pong who lives in a smelly village in Cambodia and eats dog on Fridays and is learning English from a Cheerios packet left behind by a US Marine in 1970 and inherited from his late grandad and one day will be emigrating to the US of frikkin’ A with his Granny……and ,and he has 289 Effing ‘likes’ on his post and 1,641, followers!!
Including 17 marriage proposals and offers of a place to live for the gods sake!
