My Inspiration

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I have been so busy yesterday and today with responsibilities for a support group that I haven't had time–reflective time with the blogs an teams which I visit.

And I'm empty of inspiration for a topic to write about. Usually a comment, a phrase here or there sparks my brain and I'm off on a tangent. Sometimes I wonder how I got wherever I went with an idea.

So, I want you to KNOW how important your words are to me, to everyone who actually reads them.

I cannot say the same for the new technology we are faced with that trolls everything we write, buy, read, do not only on the internet but also in our lives.

Consider the ad on my blog about the problems of cooking with alcohol. I truly take offense at having an add for a Bartender school. Using a words in our written material doesn't not necessarily imply like, dislike, disapproval, or approval.

I don't know the answer. But I am tired of paying internet provider fees for the privilege of being advertised on every page I visit and in hundreds of e-mails daily, or being bombarded with ads for things which are my triggers like m an m ydnac and bartender school. Really?

So, I too might be going the way of another SP Friend who has decided to go private with her blogs. I haven't had the negative experiences she has recently, but besides the tech stressors over which I seem to have no control, I will have more time to work on exercising, planning nutritious menus.

Must go sleep on it and see if I feel better about everything in the morning.
Perhaps I need to go eat a banana and go to bed.

    Seems advertisements are all over all the time. Don't let it frustrate you too much!
    I'm trying to train myself to ignore them!

    Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a good night's rest.

    I hope you find a solution to this. I don't know if going private will help or not. The ads may still show up (only someone who is set to private would be able to answer this). It may be that all going private does is keep others from seeing your blogs unless they are ones you have added as a sparkfriend.
    I don't like the ads either, but I ignore them unless they are blocking something I am trying to look at.
