Now, I’m usually not one to bitch about comments and stuff. But a few people may know where I’m coming from with this one.
So I’m a member of the commenting sites. I get the Despair email, and I comment within the time limit unless the site is down, the site’s on hiatus, or the person has neglected the site to the point where their last entry was in February. I mean what’s the use of having a blog if you’re going to leave your site to rot. Sometimes the site is hosted on someone’s domain. Now really, these people are hosting you from the goodness of their hearts so you can get the fuck away from Geoshitties. You neglecting your site without probably not telling them is kinda rude, no?
But that’s not what my rant is about. It’s about people who are on the commenter sites. Not all of you, but there are a few people, and I noticed this as well, who won’t comment on the sites given to them. I was checking my emails, and even though I don’t have the best memory, I can remember websites and people who are supposed to comment. I’ve run into at least 6 people who was supposed to comment here, and they never did. Fine and dandy if you’re busy, because that’s a viable excuse. But if you know you’re going to be busy, they have a little button that says if you’re going on hiatus or if you’re going to be unavailable, then click it, so you don’t get an email.
I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. I didn’t get a chance to comment on sites that I needed to for two weeks. When I got back from the hospital, what did I do? Checked my 110 emails, and went through all of the commenter sites’ emails and commented on every site. I attached to it an apology and I commented. I could have easily said “fuck it”, but I didn’t. Circumstances do come up. But some people just will say “fuck it”.
Don’t do that. You joined these exchanges. If you don’t want to be forced to comment on people’s sites, then fine and dandy. Don’t join then. I found a few wonderful sites that I’ve commented on and I will keep doing it. And if I see that you have to comment on my site and you don’t. I’ll give you 72 hours. I’ll give you ONE WEEK. If I don’t see that you have commented, I will start reporting. I think that’s a good deal considering that some people will give 72 hours and no more.
So there. Now that that’s off my chest…no Mobile Meme this week. Krissy had something wrong with her laptop and her desktop. Something about a bug getting inside the laptop’s screen. She doesn’t even know how that happened, lol. Hey, maybe she’ll get the laptop back before the week’s through. But as of now, the Mobile Meme is on a one-week (forced) hiatus.
So my niece graduated from kindergarten. This would have been her fourth graduation. Okay, before you wonder what the hell is going on, let me explain. So when she was three, she went to pre-nursery, and she graduated from there to nursery. They saw that she was very much advanced, so they moved her into pre-kindergarten out of nursery. She graduated from pre-kindergarten, and because of her age (she was 4) they made her do pre-k again. Something about them skipping her ahead too soon or some shit like that, I dunno. So she did all that stuff she did the year before again in pre-k. Then she graduated from pre-k…again. That’s three right? Okay. So now she went to kindergarten and now she graduated from kindergarten…number 4. Now if you want to look at it like this, she would have at least 4 more graduations: 5th or 6th (I dunno what that school stops at), 8th, 12th and college. And if she wants to go get her Master’s, yeah. I’m sure she’ll break the Guiness book of records for the most graduations. I have pictures, but I haven’t put them on the comp yet (still in the digital camera).
After that, we went to eat dinner. Red Lobster. I don’t know if I said this here, but I wanted to go out for dinner on my birthday, and because I was in the hospital, I never got to go. So I got to go on Friday. I wish I could have gone back to March and have it then, but…I’m going to make it my point of existence to acquire some friends and go drinking for my 22nd.
So I went back to the program again today. After two weeks of trying to look for a job, and failing miserably, I figured that I better be out there rather than in my house. They said that they’ll set me up with another one for job placement in 2 months. So I’ll be broke for at least another 2 months. So, yeah, donations and buying hosting and advertising would help me out a lot.
I’m very close to closing my MB. I’m seriously just giving up on owning one. I’ve always wanted to own just one successful board. I owned three dead ones. I’m like someone who’s gone on so many bad dates that they’ve pretty much given up on that. I don’t give up that easily, but I dunno. I’ve had a few people help me out, but a message board is a group activity. The members make the board. If you don’t have active members, you don’t have a board. So…yeah. I’ll just end up focusing on other projects. Like making a new layout for this site.
And so I leave with a love of strawberry cheesecake ice cream, which I’m about to go in my kitchen and get while watching Adult Swim. Laters!
