I Need Some Time Time Away

I need to take some time away from this blog. Yesterday I just finished another 5 day week at the humane society. I will learn how to say no. I switched jobs because the one I had wasn’t keeping me busy enough more about that next time. Every day I came home from those 6 hour shifts I was so tired I fell asleep in the recliner around 8 pm, my sleep schedule is a mess. The apartment above me had its water heater blow out the back which caused a major leak in my place. It came in the bathroom, hall closet and main closets ceilings. I had to clear out all of that stuff and dry it out, wash all of my clothes that were hanging up and I guess I was lucky the only thing that was ruined were my leather funeral shoes. I still have all of that stuff stacked all over my living room with a path leading in and out. I found 6 different to do list the other day I am so far behind in my real life it is pathetic. When my real life butts up against my virtual life this badly I have to take care of my real life first. Then add on the fact that my passions are changing. I still don’t have any urge to unpack my camera and I will start my new blog before I post on this one again. I have only been away a couple of days and looked at my email this morning and am staring at about 100 different post. I wont even try to catch up with all of those. The best I can do is pick one from each person I follow and catch up with it. Once I start back up again I will commit myself to posting once a week on this site because I don’t want to lose track of all of you or your post. I looked the other day and some how I have ended up following 50 blogs, that is part of the reason I have fallen so far behind. I have already gotten rid of 5 and some of the new ones are only following me here because of my new site. I still will have to get rid of some more though. I was going to take two or three weeks off but then that would put me to close to Christmas when I would take off again so I will probably be off of this site the rest of the year. My new blog will be about my struggles of trying to go from a vegetarian to a vegan. I will offer a link to it the next time I post other than that I wont talk about it in this blog. I do ask that you don’t follow me on my new blog just because its me, because it wont be anything like this blog. It will be full of recipes reblogs and guest speakers. I have to come up with a new pin name so my new post don’t show up on your readers to keep you all from getting confused. Then I will have to sign in and out every time I switch blogs so I will be confused. I am probably taking on too much but I have to give it a try.
I have a blog I follow that I refer as a hidden gem, this girl writes a lot like me she just blurts out what ever comes into Her head. She only has two or three followers. I am not asking you to follow Her blog, I would never do that. If you have the time you might want to take a peek at it, the choice is yours 🙂

Why

Why did WordPress put that new feature on that says you both liked post on these blogs. This shows me that I have a circle of friends that pretty much like the same friends that I do. It is also a huge a huge distraction for me. I catch myself looking down at it, some of them contain 20 or more people and see a face I don’t recognize. I then feel the need to click on that person and see why I liked their post in the first place. I would guess I waste at least an hour a day doing this.

Why is it that I have about Four friends that I comment on their post on a regular basis that WordPress will occasionally put under my comment awaiting moderation. I thought this was only supposed to happen the first time. It never happens on my side when they comment on my post.

Why do people on here suddenly start to follow you without a comment or a like posted to your page. I know some of them are trying to sell you gimmicks to increase your traffic or sell you on upgrading to the premium edition. The majority seem to be normal people with followers that range from a few to 30 or 40. Some of them I have tried to follow back and a few work out well but the majority of them just leave you hanging.

Why does WordPress out of nowhere suddenly decide on its own to unfollow friends that I have been following for a short time and a long time. I can’t find a pattern it just seems to do it when it wants to, and no it is not something I am doing. So if you are a friend and happen to be bored enough to read this garbage, let me know If I have gotten behind on your post. I always catch up every day so if I missed you it was not me but this problem I am having.

Why is it that sometimes in life once you get what you thought you wanted you realize that in my case all it does is adding to the time I spend on here each day. I have mentioned many times on here the reason I started to blog so I wont repeat them. Anyone who doesn’t know or remember the reasons are listed on my about page. I did what I swore I never would do, I fell into the popularity trap. I now follow about 60 blogs, I still follow them because I like them but I have discovered something about my greedy self. I would rather have 20 likes and a half-dozen comments on each post than the few I started with and used to be content with. I do get rid of a few friends each week that have become to big for their britches and left me in the wayside, but I seem some how to pick up just as many. I am not even fishing for friends anymore they come to me, has the word gotten out that I am a sucker. It can’t be for the garbage I post on here, I am not or never will be a writer in any sense of the word. I have friends that can complete a 700 word post in less than an hour but this simplistic post has taken me over an hour so far because I keep loosing my focus for lack of a better word.

Why is it that two of the people I follow, the ones who post six or more times a day have discovered a way to block their post from the reader. I am trying to use this unfamiliar tool but still have to use the emails as a back up. I can be so scattered brained at times I just thought of an answer to my own why. I can just set my email for these two people and not the rest. I still am curious if others have run into this problem because I know some of my friends are following the same two people.
