I was feeling pretty bummed that the weather decided yet again to take a down turn. There were floodwarnings and tornado watches before the whole mess was through and now we're left with fifty-three degrees and wind. The good news is that the coffee tastes just as good no matter what it's doing outside! I love to have the rasberry chocolate creamer to add that little something to my coffee (no matter what Marshall thinks!).
I've been continually dismayed at the condition of things over on spaces. I can pretty much keep up...mostly manually because the notifications are trashed again but I keep getting that sense that it's becoming a ghost town over there. I think that part of this is the technical problems but also I believe that it's a sign of the decline in blogging in general. Back in the day it was the rising thing to do but now I'm beginning ot think it may have been the flavor of the month and it's a new month. Sometimes I find that I've considered quitting this whole thing all together but then something changes my mind. Lovely and Carole have helped me in this regard though they may not understand why. I hate the suggestions that people are dumb or unfaithful for leaving Spaces. I know that for me communication is so important. If a site makes it harder to communicate that really effects my decisions. I don't understand that logic that says waiting it out sends some kind of message to Microsoft that encourages change...frankly I believe it does the opposite. If we sit there no matter what they do...how does this send a message that we're not happy? That being said there are those that don't want to go through the debacle of changing to a new site and have so much that they don't want to lose in their archives not to mention the danger that people they've known won't follow them should they move. Let me aleviate the fear that you can't keep in touch. I've been able to keep in touch and still blog from here. The problems with comments doesn't always make this easy. Even if they fix the comments there's still the new limit on size of comments which again hurts what matters to me: communication. Whatever choice you make: you're not stupid and I respect whatever you decide to do however keep in mind everyone has the right to make their choices.
