monday morning blather


So 
have you 
adjusted 
to the time change?  

I know 
we 
do it here
 in the US
 I am not sure 
if 
Canadians
 adjust their clocks

 losing an hour is rude 
I dont care
 how 
much 
more
 daylight 
there is at the end of the day 
I want 
my 
hour 
back

if you're awake 
you might 
have 
noticed
 I changed 
Monday Monologue 
to 
Monday Morning Blather 
why? 
well 
monologue 
seemed 
so 
stuffy 
the 
spelling 
seemed 
pretentious

 its more blather 

blather 
being 
a less 
pretentious 
word 
or 
maybe 
more

 bottom line
 I like it better  

I've been blogging 
4 years
 give or take 
new bloggers pay attention 
I am about
 to impart
 old blogger wisdom 

when you start blogging
 its all about getting followers 
so 
you join things 
called 
MEMEs 

no

 I have no idea 
how its pronounced 
but
 its a good way to meet other bloggers
build that following  
then you start to find themes 
for each day 

clever pithy titles
 for the clever posts
 you write 
 fun captions
 for the photos you post 

of course 
once you have become comfortable posting
 you 
dont 
worry 
about the 
number of followers
 or 
being in a MEME
 or 
passing around awards 

you 
just 
want 
to 
keep 
being
 interesting

 maybe
 the title 
for my post weekend recaps 
should 
just
 be 
blather 
that's all it
 is
 blather 
punctuated by photos

for
 months
I have been trying 
to
 figure out 
why 
the # of followers 
doesnt show
and 
why
 'titles'
 or 
'labels' 
on the sidebar 
dont show

 the other night
 apropos 
of nothing
I had this brain fart
what
 if the reason
 the words
 dont show
 is
 because 
you set the type color to white?  

then 
I fell asleep
 amazingly 
I remembered 
in the morning and checked
 sumofabeach 
if 
hadn't 
set
 the font color
 as
 white

DOH

GAH

fixed it 
I discovered
 I have
 405 followers

wow 
I guess
 I am not as jaded as I thought 

thank you
for joining me as I blather along
okay, 
now
off to work
