I'm so Vain!!

There was a time when blogs were posted all the time, and I mean all the time. Chances were that if you posted a blog it wouldn't remain on the front page for more than a couple of hours. To some of us that remember.........those were the good old days......As I get older I realize that what was..........may never be again.

There is a lot of complaints about how boring the blogs are..........and to a point that is true but it could be less of a bore if people put more effort towards them. Even if you read something you don't agree to..........its that more exciting than not having something to read at all?

It's not the limited about of blogs that irritate me, oh like the rest, I would love to go back to the days of running through the blogs and playing. We may never see all of the "oldies" return but I think with the right encouragement we could get some of the newer people (well some of you are new to me cause I was gone a year lol) to interact more.

What does irritate me is "Your comment must wait for approval". Now everyone has the right to make (ok keep since that is default) that rule on their blogs.........but let me tell you.........you miss out on a lot that way. I read about 3 blogs today that I would have loved to comment on......and when I found I had to wait for approval.........i didn't bother to comment. Yup, I am just that vain. In actuality, when you post a blog you want people to make comments, exchange ideas, and most of us don't want to wait until you come online to post our comment. And when it waits that long, most of us don't go back to see if someone else has posted something else.

There was a time when we didn't get that notification that blog comments had to wait for approval or you weren't allowed to comment on a certain blog..... But they changed that so we would know. And we utilize that feature..........or at least I know a few of us do.

How many here do not comment on blogs that are awaiting approval? What would be a reason why you would keep the default that comments had to wait?

BTW if its just a case of not knowing how to change it........please let us know..........I am almost positive.........that WordsofWit has an awesome blog that could help you with that.........

By the way........has anyone noticed that my blogs are a lot shorter than they use to be? What could this mean? I am old...........

but it could be less of a bore if people put more effort towards them

I've said that before myself.

As for the wait for approval, I just don't have the patience for it I guess. Yes, I admit it, when I post a comment, I want to see it right away, not wait hours or a day or whatever.

Yes, I miss the good ole days of anything goes. It was fun, it was wild, and it was a blast. Blog hijackings, and other overall silliness. Guess I'm the optimistic one, keep holding on to the hope that it can get playful again.

Sugar.........you're right in holding out hope.......I also hold the hope but it may not happen with getting the old ppl back in here (by old I mean past members) but maybe whereas the oldies aren't here.......the newbies will come forward to play.

It doesn't really matter to me if they wait to post my comment or don't post it at all .. I'm making it to them anyway so if they read it then all is fine. I'm sure most of them do it so they can keep control of their own blog... which is our responsiblity I'm assuming .. don't see a mod here very often .. unless he's summoned to kick somebody out.

I would love to see some return to blogging, Shawn for one, I used to love his blogs. I cannot remember the full name, but there was one, Ash, I used to like reading her comments on blogs. And of course Borty needs to get back here. Max is back, .

but maybe whereas the oldies aren't here.......the newbies will come forward to play.

That's what I keep hoping for.

it's true, summernite, that we have to police our own blogs, but that can be done by deleting comments and/or blocking that person from further bs. and yes for the most part I do make comments to the author of the blog, but to get a good commentary going a person could answer other people's comments as further agreement with your own view or to make a reason why in your opinion that their belief is wrong. You will get more comments and therefore get more feedback if you open up your blogs.

As i said it was a persons right to do what they want with their blogs, if a person did nothing but post a blog everyday that said he had blue balls, it is his right. (please no one take this as a suggestion!) I was just saying there are people that would comment if they were approved without waiting. Why would anyone not want more comments on their blogs..........after all its more attention..........and that's really why anyone writes a blog is for attention.

Now you know......if there were some guys out there suffering from blue balls getting ready to blog about it...you just done gone and discouraged them.


As most know, my blogs are set so that comments are automatically approved. I just delete, block, and report(if necessary) any who are just trying to start fights. Otherwise, I like to keep the lines of communication open.

Chances were that if you posted a blog it wouldn't remain on the front page for more than a couple of hours.

Interestingly enough... that just ended about a couple weeks ago, when a certain 'blogger hogger' would cause other blogs to disappear off of page one way before their time! Some blogs were very good, some useful, some humorous etc. All were gone in a short period of time. That used to be my bitch!

There is a lot of complaints about how boring the blogs are

You can't please all of the people all of the time- only some of the people some of the time, no matter who writes what! That seems to be the fact that some people just can't understand, for some reason!

What does irritate me is "Your comment must wait for approval"

That used to bug me too. Now, it doesn't because I don't... comment in that particular blog that is!

How many here do not comment on blogs that are awaiting approval?

Skip... onward and upward to the next blog! I go from the oldest to the youngest... blog that is!

What would be a reason why you would keep the default that comments had to wait?

Just to piss people off............. ohhhh wait- that sounds too much like the guy with the cruddy shower stall!.......... NEVER mind!!!

By the way........has anyone noticed that my blogs are a lot shorter than they use to be?

Sounds like a serious computer upgrade is needed- it can't keep up with your touch typing speed! At least upgrade from a TRS-80 to a Apple IIe.


Just my 2ยข worth and then I probably have change coming back!

I explain how to change the settings to the newbies sometimes. Otherwise, I don't comment.

I am almost positive.........that WordsofWit has an awesome blog that could help you with that

I don't know how awesome it is, but anybody interested can just enter "newbies" into the search field on the blog page and "Blogging 101 for Newbies" should show up. The computer I am now using cannot get the URL feature for links to function
