Where on earth do people disappear to? UPDATE ALERT MESSAGE NOW
Well I heard from ONE of the gals. Her name is Melissa and her blog name was Keep calm and decorate. She said her blog was removed by google without warning, just GONE! She is very very upset right now and hoping someone out here can steer her in the right direction. HELP anyone??? Now I wonder about my other friend LEANN...her blog was Vintage Sassy. Anyone know?????
Now you can read my story below:
OK seriously, twice in one week. Two of my favorite blogging friends have removed their blogs. Just up and left. You know when something like this happens, and I know it happens, I feel sadness. I think about it and wonder. Now that sounds dumb right? I do not even know you people, you don't know me. But in a virtual kind of way we have all connected and visit and talk to each other sometimes more than we speak to our own families and friends? RIGHT or WRONG? I am going to say right. One of my friends who left actually posted and said she was thinking about it. WHY, she never said, but after uplifting words she seemed to stick around for a while, and continued wonderful posts, that I so enjoyed. Now the other friend, there was no sign or red light of any sort. Just GONE!
I do believe If I where to remove my blog I would give an indication. I feel that I would have that obligation to my readers and visitors to at least say SEE YA! That is just me. I do not know their circumstances and it could be serious. There have been women who do come back and then pour their hearts out as to why they left in the first place.
What is it with blogging? Why do so many of us feel so compassionate about it? Why do others become withdrawn? I am a woman of many questions here. I would love your insight. AND to my blogging friends that left...You know who you are, I miss ya! I really do. Even if I did not visit you every day, or every other day, I know I got over at least once a week. From what I see, we are all very kind and considerate to one another. Have you seen different?
Well I guess I have bad PMS this month, because I am feeling the need to get this out there and talk about it. That is the emotional part of me this month. Is blogging competitive in your opinion? Are there jealousies amongst us, that go unspoken? What do you all see, that perhaps others do not? Do you get annoyed if you comment continuously on someones blog and they never come over to yours? Do you love comments, or can do without? Do you get annoyed at a host who never comments on your blog, YET she goes over to a lot of others? I am going to answer that right here and NOW YES I do, it's rude! OK....that is my input for the day.
ALSO one more thing. I think we should all turn OFF word verification. IT Is NOT necessary. It is annoying, it takes extra time, I always make typos and can't stand it! NUFF said!!~
