Z's sins are scarlet but her blogs are 'read'

Not actually read, I'm afraid.  I've given in, marked 'all read' and will try to keep up from now on.  I'm sorry, I just couldn't catch up.

I said a couple of weeks ago that I was going to delete any blogs where I didn't feel a personal involvement, including those whose writers never commented on mine or acknowledged me - of course, I revisited any blog before I deleted it, and hardly any have gone.  I only read blogs whose writers I like or whose writing I like, so I can't be selective and decide whether you're 'worthy' of being written by the criterion of you getting around to commenting here.  That would be a bit arrogant of me.

Right, that's that out of the way.  But transferring to G-Reader from Bloglines meant some duplications and I've not been able to sort it out, so I'm starting again.

I spent most of the day at the school, in music lessons.  I am fond of 13-year-olds.  And, at this stage of the school year, they're all polite and respectful and they thank you for any help!  I'm not cut out to be a teacher, but I like helping voluntarily.   I'm jolly lucky, in fact because the voluntary work that I'm mysteriously compelled to do is, mostly, a pleasure.  There are a couple of things I'd like to ditch and another I rather wish I hadn't taken on, but no matter.

And now I realise that a couple of emails haven't yet been sent.  I must go, darlings, because I must write them this evening.

Just finished work for the night. I forgot to have coffee, so will take a nice cup of Rose Pouchong to bed.

I seem to read less blogs these days - but mainly because many of those on my blogroll either don't post anew every day, or have stopped blogging completely.

lom said...

its good to have a clean out, I have also found a lot of the blogs I liked to read have stopped, it must be the time of year.

Z said...

Good job we're reliable, hey Dave?

It is a very busy time of year for a lot of people, isn't it? I think of September as the start of the year in some respects, partly because of schools and also because in January we don't exactly return from a Christmas break refreshed and invigorated.

I can never keep up. I'm totally hopeless these days... I log in and work down my list... and jump in if something catches my attention... I miss loads.

I'd never delete a friend, darling, you know me better than that.

Especially linked with sin, S?

I deleted a whole lot of rubbish caught by the spam filter, some of it less blatant than that. Random, isn't it? Sorry, folks.

It's the "I like your writings, they helped me...." spam I don't understand. What's the pay-off for them? Is there any?

Was going to add something else, but decided against it. Discretion, etc.

Maybe, in some far-flung land, there are students daft enough to use our ramblings as the basis of their dissertations, Si. Simon the Discreet. Oh, okay.

I found that these "Oh your text is so helpful"-"comments" and others of this kind carry a lot of links in their addresses, not in the text. They may work as hooks for other spam to follow, but I am not sure about this.
