RSS Reader Wars

Starting about a year ago, I was thinking that I should start using a RSS reader. I tried several, but they seemed to be rather awkward and very difficult to use. After trying several, I would wonder what all the fuss was about. They just didn’t work very well. It seemed like I missed a lot of posts and the effort just wasn’t worth it. However, about four months ago, I thought that I would give it another try. Again, bust after bust. I would tell you which one’s I tried, but honestly the only one that I remember is

I’m All Caught Up! Whew!

Back in July I had a wonderful two week vacation of geocaching, family (the in-laws), and girls’ camp with my daughter.  However, upon my return, I found myself behind on reading my RSS reader.  I was so overwhelmed that I didn’t even bother reading most of the posts in July.  I simply hit the mark all as read button.  I hope I didn’t miss anything important. Despite skipping many posts, I still felt overburdened.  I just didn’t feel like tackling any of the new posts to my reader in August either.  So, I let them stack up again. With my

Blog Is Moved

Please note, that this is here, just to keep the post. We are staying right here at WordPress For the past few months, I have been transferring my blog from here to WordPress.com. It has taken a long time because there was no automatic transfer, so I had to do each post one at a time. It is all done now, so I won’t be posting here any more. This is your official notice that I will not longer be posting here, but over at gazelem.wordpress.com. This means that if you want to keep up with me, then you will

Fabulous Farding Friday: Changes

Yep, I am reusing the “Fabulous Farding Friday” series again. But don’t get your hopes up. I am using it only because this is Friday, and because the subject here is completely fitting for a Fabulous Farding Friday. You may have noticed that this site is a little different. The changes are actually the result of an errant click of the mouse. During my long inactivity from this site, there have been several upgrades to the Blog-city service. It appears that most of them were for the better. However, by clicking on one of the links to confirm the upgrades,

Fabulous Farding Friday: Ten Days, Ten Posts

I haven’t been writing as much as I like. And so, to get me back into the pattern, I am going to do another writing marathon. Starting on Sunday, I will write a new blog everyday for 10 days. I am planning on sticking with my themed days (i.e., Solemn and Sagacious Sunday and Marathon Maniac Monday), so if that’s what keeps you coming back, I hope you enjoy. Otherwise, it will be politics. There really is a lot going on, but I just am avoiding writing about it. I just have lost interested. Anyway, here’s to the next couple

TeleValues

Well, I have done it.  If you remember, I spent the whole month of may giving my thoughts and opinions on television and the programming.  Well, that lead me to think that I might enjoy writing a blog dedicated to television.  So, I finally put one together.  Actually, I have been working on it for most of the summer. So, I would like to invite you to come on over to TeleValues and especially tell a freind.  To be completely honest. I want this site to be a money maker.  I don’t expect to get rich off of it.  However,
