Some personal thoughts

It seems there's a metamorphosis that sometimes happen with bloggers on this illustrious site and I think it's happened to me.

After some time away from being online, due to being busy with that other thing called Real Life™ aka Work plus Other Stuff™, I realized that I need to continue with less time online because my boss expects me to do my job, ungrateful bitch (just kidding, she's a great boss actually) and I like the outside world. I like the F2F contact with friends and family, as we all do.

But I do like blogging and I particularly like blogging on this site because the community is a bit more open-minded than others. I did not renew my membership on this site, so I've become (drum roll please) a Standard Member. Which always cracks me up...Gold Member...Silver Member...they should have Long Member...Thick Member...Teeny Weeny Member...ahh I digress. Anyway, in a round about explanation for my bitchy post a couple of weeks ago, I won't give up the thing I like about this site, the blogs.

Being on this site has made me figure out what I do want and what I don't want, which I think is always a good thing. Isn't it?

Thank you for listening. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

But you ARE part of my regularly scheduled program!

For me, cutting back on IM and chat made a HUGE difference. Blogging isn't done in real time, so I can fit it in here and there, and no longer for hours at a time.

Plus, for me, I feel like I'm still getting a lot of that metamorphisis fuel from it.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

Well said... I have gone through the same metamorphosis myself.

I found being a standard member was pretty comperable for blogging... but there are a few little annoying things I missed that drove me back. Damn if the "response" thing isn't so much more convient as a gold member.

OMG, after Spring has Sprung, the garden is planted, the snow is nearly melted, and work has slowed to a crawl, I return to read a favorite blogger to discover she's only a Standard Member. O what is this world coming to? Just kidding, about the what is this world coming to part.
Seriously, high quality bloggers, of which you are, should have all of the priviliges of the new Platinum Member. Free reign on this site. For the time, effort and creativity put into yours blogs, you should be rewarded with more than the ability to read comments such as this. Why not go even further with blogger member levels, Sarcastic, Witty, Funny, AA (All-Around), Spit liquid all over your desk because it's so damn funny Diamond Blogger member. It's the least they could do!
Keep up the great work WOI.

Well, glad you got that straightened out in your head....just go forth and blog now. If you find yourself in temptations to quit again, just do 6 repetitions of the 12 Stations of the Blog, you'll be fine. Later
