Are you happy/satisfied with your blog with it's content and look?

Are we ever?
I am always changing this or that.
I have come along way from when I started my first blog and I have learned a lot and there is more to learn.
As for the content, I wanted to be myself.
I wanted to speak my mind without having to raise my hand and ask for permission.
For a while I was catious but in the last 7 months I have let go unrestrained, speaking my thoughts and lending my opinions when I felt like it.
As an individual living in a country where freedom of speech is encouraged I have spoken without fear of beig arrested.

Does your family know about your blog?

No they don’t and I have no intention of telling them.
This is still a private diary and I write about them, but for that, I have tried to show both sides of the fence as much as possible.
I believe in cause and effect.
Behind every story there is another version and try to understand it before I write a post about them.
That is something I have always watched for in other blogs.
We can gripe about our partners but are we understanding them?
Can we see their side of the story and honestly judge ourselves through their eyes and their concerns as we so readly condem them for their feelings?

Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?

I am not embarrassed in fact most of my backgammon frineds have my blog now and read it daily.
Many people at my BBQ sat down and read it when they were here.They are to shy to comment though.
The problem of having friends and family reading is that they don’t ungerstand your thoughts and feelings.
It takes away you abilty to speak you thoughts without having the scrutinized thus putting you on the defensive at home.

Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?

Yes and no.
For the most part they have, I have learned a lot from reading how other people live and what they go through in life.
In many cases it enlightening to find similarities with me life and to see what their solution to a problem I may be having and the effect it had on them.
Then there are the few assholes who I want to slap silly.

Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?

Both.
I have a large blogroll and the people on there are for different reasons.
The main one being is that they are real people.
Honest people with stories to tell and lifestyles to share.
They are no better than me or any of you but people struggling to live a life they choose to.
I go to your blogs and go through your blog rolls to see what you are reading and if I find someone, I save them in my favorites and keep going there.
I may comment, I may not but with my big mouth the chances are I won’t shut up for long.
There is a wealth of love, caring and life on many of your pages and you should all go out and find some treasures.

What does visitors counter mean to you?

That I have visitors.

Do you care about putting it in your blog?

Well it’s also security meassures.
I have 3 on my blog for different reasons the one I count is the bravenet counter.
It’s nbeen on my blog from almost the beginning.
The others are for their tracking abilities.
It’s to bad that we have to put up precautions to keep the assholes at bay.

Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?

Not really, I see the people as they truly are through their words and the physical appearance is meaningless.
Beauty comes from inside and the words most people put on their blogs are from the soul.

Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?

Yes I do.
I think by sharing what we go through in life helps us deal with the hardships we go through.
We find people in similar situations and could relate.
We see we are no alone in our pight or happiness.
Then there are the benefits of helping others with your posts on something they are dealing with in their lives at the momment.
Like I have said before, the blogging community is a vast network of reality.
It’s the biggest reality show on earth and the prize is your life.

Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?

HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s all about life and what is happening aroud the world or in yuour house.
The news on TV tells you what they see, here we hear how they feel.
We are real people in real situations.
We watch Monica waiting for her son to come home from Iraq.
We were there in New Orleans when the flooding was ripping families apart.
We were appauled when a father forgot his baby to roast in his car.
How much more fucken real can you get?
When Heather was prematurelly in labor and much much more.
NO script
No rehersal
Life at in it's rawest form.
You fuck up
You pay
That’s’s what we see and feel here everyday, what people all over the word go through alone everyday or together as a global villiage.

Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it's a normal thing?

Critism doesn’t bother me if it’s toward what I wrote and someone opinion is always welcome.
Let’s face it we don’t all think the same.
We should respect what other people think or believe in.
Now if you come into my site with a chip on your shoulder screaming and ranting.
Insulting the other guests on my blog well then you are going to get what’s coming to you from me and then banned.

Do you fear of some political blogs and avoid them?
No I don’t.
When ever I can’t sleep I go seek one out so that I can pass out from bordom.

Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?

No I am not shocked.
People who work in sensitive areas and then spill it all out on their blogs is a breach of trust.
A lot is said on these pages and some could be potentially dangerous in this political climate.
How many pedophiles and sex offenders use these pages.
Do you know, I don’t.
I have posted about how dangerous it can be with the internet and blogging
In these two posts, Scary Lurkers, Harsh Lessons .

Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?

Who gives a fuck, I'm dead.
My archives are there for those who wish to read them, otherwise who they hell wants to read my typos anyway.
My blog is about my life and when I am gone it ends with me

What do you like to hear?

The sound of a woman moaning as I am eating her pussy.
I have no idea what this question was for LOL.

What's the song you like to put its link in your blog?

What song, there are many songs I put up and for many reasons but usually it has to go with my post.
I think two of my favorite songs that I have put up is “Saving Grace” by Tom Petty and Eric Clapton’s “You Look Wonderful Tonight”.

Five bloggers to be the next "victims"?
I hate Memes so I won’t Tag anyone.

Have a nice day

Walker

Thanks for not tagging. I hate those things, too!

It is interesting how many different meanings and purposes blogs serve. I didn't know what to expect when I began, and I had an idea about the purpose I wanted but didn't know if it would go there. Well, it has, and it hasn't! It took on it's own life, and I just go with the flow. My only expectation is that it would be "decent" once I learned that 2 of my granddaughters are reading it. Curiously, without my requesting it, it has been exactly that while allowing me to go whither I chose.

Yours makes me blush. Among other things. But I keep reading, so you figure it out!! ;-)

I prefer to keep my blog prviate from my family also but it probably won't stay that way forever. Blogging has been very therapeutic for me. Like Lynilu you sometimes make me blush Walker but I am here and read every post! Wouldn't miss it for anything.

I agree with much of what you say about blogging. My blog is a little more public than I first intended it to be, but I still feel freedom to write pretty much what I want.

Your songs? Those are both classics.
