After two years of blogging and following I have a problem.
following the blogs of others
When I started most blogs I found were on blogger and I just pressed the little follow button on the top left and the blog would faithfully turn up on my dashboard where I could read and comment to my hearts content.
After going missing in action for over six months I notice there have been some changes.
Many bloggers have swapped to WordPress
Now, if I was following them before, that is fine they still pop up on my dashboard
if they look exciting and I would like to follow it appears I have to subscribe via email!!!!
This I won't do!
My email here is where I conduct beautiful conversations with you and the one thing that gets me out of bed in the mornings is the chance that there might be a lovely message from you
I do not need to lose that amongst the emailed blogs!
My personal email currently has dozens of unopened emails that I really need to attend to so I don't need more there either
So my conundrum is
do I follow from someone else's blogroll (and not really get to know them!) not follow at all (and thus miss out on what may become a beautiful friendship!)
Now sometimes they do have an RSS feed but this creates another problem...I do not understand RSS feed and every time I try to do this I just get the same blog (1 only) from about 18 months ago from a blog that I no longer wish to follow as she was somewhat offensive!!!
I have also tried copying the URL (?) and adding it to the dashboard only when I do that all of you, my dear band of merry men, disappear (obviously blogger objects strenuously to outside influences!!)
what to do???
and the images you ask? I am just trying to pretend I am still at the beach!!!
first photos taken on my new (old) camera!!!
(I have to work on the lighting thing as it was one of the few sunny days!!!)
