Sometimes we post a joke. Other times, we "talk" about how our day went. Sometimes, it's about the days events in the news. Sometimes it's to tell stories. Sometimes to play a game. Sometimes it's to just bitch, whine, gripe, piss and moan. Sometimes, it's just to throw a bunch of words together. For the most part, it's fun. Sometimes, it gets heated, there are arguments, sometimes hurt feelings, sometimes words are printed that are hard to take back. Sometimes feelings get hurt if there isn't enough attention to one's words. But, all in all, it should be for sharing thoughts and maybe a few chuckles along the way. So what if a joke has been read/heard before? Maybe there is someone reading/listening that it's the first time they've read/heard it.

The guidelines say "keep it interesting". Well, interesting for who? The person writing it? Or, those who may read it? How does one know if others will find the subject interesting? What one person may find interesting, another person may not. Just like jokes, what one may find boring, someone else may find funny. Stories, some find them fun, others may find them so so. News, sometimes it's interesting, sometimes it's not.

Ok..if you haven't caught on yet, I'm talking about blogs. I've looked at blogs on other sites, even over at the vanilla site, (and some of those blogs there can get pretty heated!), but, I keep coming back here. Why? Friends is a big part of it, but, it's also because here, it feels like "home". Kinda funny to say that about a little website, but, that is how it feels here. How many here have actually wandered over to other sites, checked out blogs, and then just end up back over here?

Just something I was thinking of while at work today.

This paragraph says it all IMHO. I'm sick to death of the people who continue to bitch and moan about how the blogs aren't meeting with their approval. Give me a break!

IMO...it's that mentality that continues to detour some people from blogging...me included. Kudos to you Ms. Sugar. You took the words right out of my mouth.

I couldn't agree more with you, Dawn. Very well said.

This does feel like home to me as well. I do enjoy some of you and enjoy your friendships.

Sometimes it's nice to just take a break from here and then. Kudos!

Oops...I forgot to answer your question.

Sure...I wonder here and there...but I keep coming back to AMD because of the wonderful friendships I've made. I haven't found another site that holds a candle to most of the peeps in Pervia.

We come back to what we know...the familiar, no matter the "condition" of the blogs...AMD with those we know is....well... just familiar.

Familiar now is really the unfamiliar. Lots of new profiles yet I suspect most are one and the same with the "game" of trying to be totally diverse in subjects. Yet in this case, the unfamiliar is somewhat familiar.

The front page is choked with...sludge...just my opinion which doesn't matter one whit. So anyway...I'm here but not here if ya know what I mean. Interest? That is elusive for me at this point and that is ok 'cause ....well...that's just life in Pervia...yanno?

Are you referring to the front page of todays blogs, or the popular page which is the sign in page?

I will agree with Softie and add that a large part of the appeal of Pervia is that it is small so people can get to know one another and not get lost in the crowd. But it does seem like this theme is a bit tiring with all due respect.

And like I said:

Well, interesting for who? The person writing it? Or, those who may read it? How does one know if others will find the subject interesting? What one person may find interesting, another person may no

The last line, "What one person may find interesting, another person may not."

It was something I was thinking about today....if, and this is with all due respect...."a bit tiring".....I'm not sorry. It's my thoughts, and if someone finds it "tiring", there's no arm twisting to read it now...is there? Like I said, something I was thinking about...if one doesn't like it....skip on by.

No just your crap !!! I'm quite sure she is referring to the blog page .... Elementary my man. ..

I'm referring to the blog page...when I click on blogs. Don't be paranoid Shawn...I have no problem with your game blogs. Just know that I'm not into anything that has to do with music/movies/television/actors and artists....I have little knowledge about any of it because I'm not interested in any of it. I'm not criticizing those games at all. Just because they don't interest me doesn't mean a thing...there's a number of people here who are into those things.

It's all the other sludge that I'm referring to....and that's as specific as I'm gonna get.

I wasn't, Bonnie. There were two ways that could have gone and I was only curious and wanted clarification.

I have no problem with your game blogs.
I didn't think you did.

It's all the other sludge that I'm referring to
To be honest with you, my first thought was that you were referring to today blogs, and nothing more. I should have just let it roll and thought nothing of it. I apologize for putting you on the spot.

I don't meander over to other sites to look at their blogs- I prefer to blog here! I like to be informative and be a smart ass occasionally............ alright... more often than not but, in my defense, it's to get a few chuckles out of people- sometimes at my own expense!

Good blog sugar!!

I wander back and forth from here to vanilla and a few others too once in a while. I also post blogs on both ... sometimes it's the same blog sometimes it's not I don't generally think about who will like or even read what I wrote ... most times I write just because the urge hits me.

I am on here and Y Groups. I am a moderator on a couple of friends groups over there but I usually just stop by there to approve new members and take out the trash. I never really blog on any of the groups. This place is usually more friendly in spite of the occasional troll wandering through.

I've always been all over the place. I only pop in here now and then anymore cuz I just don't have much to say right now.

I dunno.. there are some great people over here .. so I'm gonna say the people.
