Can’t stomach the ‘meat’ personally; I find it tasteless: always have. My dilemma, though, is not with this so-called ‘meat’, but with the other kind of SPAM – unsolicited mail.
My computer, like any other computer, filters through the SPAMS, but occasionally a couple will get through into my SPAM queue, and if they do I will read them. But the fact of the matter is, I am loathe to respond to any of them because they’re in my SPAM.
The thing I find weird is that these SPAMS all refer to blogs I have posted, and the fact they are ‘awesome’ as someone wrote. If the senders of these SPAMS enjoy reading my blog, then why, oh why, do they not respond by clicking onto the ‘Leave a reply’ at the head of the blog. Does my picture and potted history on my author page strike fear into my readers? I hope not. Or is it the fact it seems rather formal to ask, ‘leave a reply’. I suppose it’s like replying to the RSVP on a formal invitation. But, I think I may have solved the problem, and only time will tell. I’ll put a ‘think bubble’ in place of, ‘leave a reply’. Something bright, welcoming and, I hope, more user friendly.
My next task is to seek out my computer expert as I haven’t the foggiest idea how to go about inserting a ‘think bubble’ into the blog. Got better things to do than tamper for hours, trying to work out how its done: things like writing for instance: might shuffle off my coil tomorrow and I want to finish the novel I am half-way through, so no time for learning new IT skills, I have an expert living in the same house.
For those of you who read my books, and my blog, keep your eyes peeled for the new ‘think bubble’. I quite like the one above. Something, though, will appear. It may not be today, or even tomorrow as I have to coerce, bribe, or even blackmail my ‘expert’ into completing this task for me, but I can assure you it will be done.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to continue sending me your comments as I really do appreciate them. They make this ageing author’s day.
