A response to a comment

Dear Radioman KC,

In the beginning. If you are Catholic you know that this is code for long. In the beginning I was introduced to blogging by a good friend ( Gone Mild ). From his blog I found XO & Greg Beck. After months of commenting on those blogs anonymously I decided that it was only fair to them that I create an identity (anonymous one) so that they would know it was the same person. Since I had the identity created I might as well start my own blog where I could rant & write about what ever I wanted. That's what your own blog is for. It's for you. I don't care to be like Tony or anyone else. As I don't go to Fox Fake News I don't go either to Tony's. He can put what ever he wants on his blog. Good for him. I don't make any money from this & don't plan to. I don't want to be a news person. I blog what & when I want.

I created this blog to store a list of blogs in the Kansas City area. Which as far as I know there wasn't one back then. As people asked me I've included their blog here. If anyone knows of any send them to me to include. I will include everybody. Unless they piss me off. It's only happened once so far. I'm pretty easy going, really.

I had no intention of opening this up for anything more than the list & announce gatherings, Happy Hours, whatever. I would be willing to post an introduction to a blog. If bloggers emailed me something describing them & their blog I would be willing to post that. But you can "piss and moan. Coin ideas. Lament, Stroke and diss each other." on your own blogs. If you are "working less on my blog as on my website" you don't have time to post on mine.

Regarding the monthly meetings. Did you ever come to one? I will confess that I have become lax in scheduling them/announcing them enough in advance. One of the problems is they were so big that it was hard to find a good place. So we moved it around trying to be fair to bloggers all over the KC area. Changing days because some could come on this day but not that one. I will tell you it's like herding cats. Mind you I do love these cats! And that is the thing, many of us have become good friends. I would even say the kind that will be life long friends. Many of us see each other at other times than a monthly meeting. We have each others phone numbers, addresses, keys & codes to their houses. I'm grateful for these friendships.

I work a full time job, I'm on two boards, and do weekly volunteering. I have two FB accounts, one Twitter account, multiple emails. I'm married (+25 years), own a home with 4 acres & a cat & 2 LARGE dogs. I'm 54 years old. I'm tired. So if I don't schedule a Happy Hour please forgive me but Life happens. And cooking? Well, I've done all the cooking I need, now I'm simmering.

So please, anyone how would like me to post an intro to you & your blog email it to me at Great idea Radioman!



PS While I'm at it: I'm a vegetarian who loves Bacon. I'm a liberal democrat who goes to church. I do spiritual direction & say fuck. Oh yeah! I almost forgot. I took English as a second language, my punctuation is not text book. I like to use !!!!! And my spelling is better than many English speaking people. Now you all know a little more about me. Don't like it? Too bad, plenty do! LOL!
