A few months ago I read wifeinthenorth and became a blogaholic. Her words were so real they reached into my life and moved me. I was going through a difficult patch myself and thought I would like to express how I feel about “senior citizenship” and let others into my life so that I too could move them.
No chance. This first thing that happened was that I pissed off a bunch of people and was lobbied against. My site was closed down. My husband spoke in my defence. “You know she’s mad. You shouldn’t take any notice of her. Her criticisms aren’t meant to be personal, she just engages mouth before brain. It’s the way she is. She’s always been that way”. You can see he really, really loves me. Only a loved one could be that observant! My site was restored, my wrists were slapped, behave yourself, act your age.
So here you read watered down stuff, although I think I may have lulled them into a false sense of security. I think they got sick and tired of monitoring rubbish and stopped reading the blog.
Anyway, I digress. I remember when wifeinthenorth received her first link request. She wrote of being overwhelmed with emotion. Someone liked her blog so much they wanted to link with her. I thought, “I would like that too”. So I asked IT “How do I get someone to link with me?” “Just ask” came the reply. “How?” Shrug!
The trouble is they think that I have half a brain and I am compelled to foster this misapprehension because if they realise how dumb I really am they may think “Shit, our livelihoods rely on decisions make by this esteemed Senior Director and she’s a dingbat”. Also I would find it hard explained to the Board that the IT projects were delayed because they have been helping me.
So, what I’m getting at is that yesterday a fellow blogger asked if she could blogroll me. I was so thrilled I was like a kid in a toyshop. She loves me. Yes please. Blogroll me! Do I have to do anything to make this magic thing happen? Is there anyone out there that can help me? IN WORDS OF ONE SYLABLE PLEASE
