I turned on my computer this morning to find several emails and comments had come into my in box overnight. Mostly, complimentary messages about particular posts I have written , which is very kind of all concerned. Thank you. The remainder were from some people I have become friends with through Alphainventions.Without exception, they all mentioned the difficulties they face in submitting their blog, mainly due to a few kamikaze-like individuals who like to think that the site is for their exclusive purposes, be it commercial or private. Even the checks and balances that have been implemented by Cheru have not deterred them and it is getting to the point where one has to wonder if it is worth even submitting a site into the cycle because the chances of it appearing are minimal and if by chance it does make it on, it is merely a flash on the screen then it’s back to the same few blogs who seem to dominate the cycle.
To be honest I am getting tired of all the sniping that surrounds this current state of affairs and there are far more important issues in our lives that warrant concern.Let some common sense prevail and hopefully those catalysts for the issues at Alphainventions will be shamed into acting like rational adults and we can all get back to pleasant networking and making some good friends along the way- as was originally intended by Cheru.
On a less intense note. Prue and her housemate Lauren called around this morning. It was a lovely surprise and they stayed for a while, before they had to leave to go into the city. Lauren is a nanny so they are taking the child into town to see a circus. I think they are looking forward to it as much as the child!
