Riddle

Riddle: What do KDP & a nymphomaniac have in common?

Answer: The urge to say.......

To say I'm in a bad mood would be like saying a tsunami is a bit of coastal flooding.

Not a lot is going my way lately. Rosa is also in a bit of a funk as well. But, what the hell? You know what they say...."it's always darkest .....just before you fall down a a flight of stairs."


A nice nymphomaniac acting on the 'fuck everything' philosophy. I'm not sure if it's working for her or not....but the guys don't seem to mind. The people fucking you never do.

If you look at the brief 'mission statement and blog rules' at the top of the page, my intention that this be a place of interaction was always clear from the start. Now I know of a couple of folks who have added or converted their existing blogs to ones with limited access. In the past I shied away from this notion, feeling that I wanted as many interesting people to be able to interact here as possible. LOL. Well a quick perusal of the input lately indicates just how successful that has been! So I'm thinking I might just try a more EXclusive rather than INclusive approach.

I'm figuring there are a pretty solid handful of people who seem interested enough to participate here and perhaps it would be better if they were considered members of a more limited club. They deserve it after all.

It seems like the blog now is like having an open bar without a guest list. Plenty of people will come in for the free drinks and only a few ever tip or get to know the bartender, while most don't even bother to say 'thanks for the drink'.  So I'm thinking if I just opened the bar to a few patrons, not much would change for the bartender (me).....except that the amount of free booze consumed by anonymous party-crashers  would fall to nothing. I would get the same amount of comments from the same people and perhaps even feel more free to post things I have kept private. 

So I'm going to look into what is involved in making the conversion, and if it is simple enough, I will grant access to those who actually make the effort to participate and "Collected Submissions" will no longer be open to anyone else.

  1. Well I certainly know how fell if not for the same reason been that myself lately. Work a lot if hours and sometimes seems like for no good reason. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Give it a little time.

    1. Thanks Joe, I already feel better. But part of that is due to some decisions I've made. And one is definitely making access to this blog limited. (And naturally you are not going to be excluded.)

  2. I agree with every word KD and have been contemplating the same thing with my blog as opposed to shutting it down completely (which is still an option) .
    Let me know what you come up with to restrict access to those who truly deserve it.

    1. Glen, I am going to make the change soon. I am going to choose the option of limited to permitted readers with Google/Blogger accounts. It's an easy step done in Blogger settings.

    1. You were here from the start before everyone else, and have always participated. I can't think of a list without your name at the top.

  5. You put in an inordinate amount of effort on this blog, which is more of an on line magazine article than a simple blog. I often agree whole hearted with your discussion and always find it entertaining at least.
    I have a half hearted attempt at a blog that has faded after some years. It was more a shared journal than a "blog" and rarely had any comments at all. That's ok since my primary purpose of it was to journal my sex life so I would have something to refer back to.

    I do appreciate the effort you go to in writing or creating this and look forward to more in the future.

    Thanks, mrbill

    2. Bill it is important that you send me an email saying you are Mr. Bill. Blogger won't let me add you without an email address. Thanks.

  6. I think it depends on what you want. If you want lots of comments, then I suppose private is the way to go so you don't feel like you're giving away content for free, I guess.

    I enjoy interacting with people in blogland and a private blog makes it harder to have new people find you.

    1. I have thought about this and acted upon it.....only to have glitches within Blogger itself fuck the entire process.

      As it stands now I will keep posting publicly here while maintaining the second blog for as long as it seems possible to actually use it.
