Bother - said Winnie ther Pooh -

I regret that I had to lose my blog list. I wondered about dividing it up: blogs I like, blogs that teach me, blogs that give me hope, blogs I don't like. But I couldn't decide. So I have gone to an old backup and will see what sorts of blogs I have or have not lost or gained in the last year or so. I currently have 74 subscriptions on Google reader - too many to manage. Most of them are in the second list. It changes all the time. So I am not sure that I will bother trying to be friendly by classifying the blogs I like and don't like at the moment.

I use the Behemoth for sharing - it seems to me like a useful thing and the shared items appear on this blog. But the gadgets on the other blog interfere with printing - I never print but some do. I wonder if anyone has developed a print button - looked for such a gadget but did not find one.

Here's a list from a year and a half ago

There are some blogs I have read that are not now on any of these lists.

I will be away for the next two weeks in England and France. It is not too likely that I will post from December 2 till mid December - and I will have too many things to read on my return so will probably mark all as read.

I do enjoy the interaction and will often mention posts in my writing. I do wish good for you all, friend and enemy alike.

Thanks for bothering! Wow, you always (re)present words and text in such visually appealing ways. I love your translating (and even like how you show us what you're doing with reading various blogs. I am honored you've included my blog in your list, and that you read it some)!

A comment - yea! Thanks for the encouragement. Yours is a blog I learn from - my highest award. Bless you in your coming roles. Do not lose your edge but sharpen it on the rock that you are on.
