Click…Click Visitors

Well hello out there in Blog-Land… such a terrible
description (it reminds me of bog) and I’m not referring to marshes or swamp-lands. Oh lord I just checked my stats – yes we all do, don’t say you don’t! 🙂 As of 7.54pm Thursday night I have clicked over 7,000 visitors.

I am sorry that quite a number of you didn’t stay long enough to comment or hit the like button otherwise I am sure I would have offered you a cup of tea, a beer or a sauvignon blanc.

However you chose not to and that is your prerogative. Regardless of why you visited or how you came to visit I thank you. You have wandered tirelessly amongst the internet and google and other search engines to find something of interest…when in fact you just found me.. sad but true. This woman from The Land Down Under, who writes (prolifically) about any thing that enters her head.

From little things big things grow…they say.

Yes I am indebted to my regulars who hit the button, who spend time to comment and it truly is a wondrous thing that they do and I am very grateful, for those of you in other countries that have probably ventured into my domain (without realising) apologises.

Was my tag too convincing… did I lure you under false pretence? Or where you genuinely interested in finding what this woman who you don’t know from a grain of salt had written about?

as they say SPEAK OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE … SO if you have stumbled upon my site… PLEASE don’t be shy.. that’s all I’m saying.

Thank you my followers I love you all – PLEASE also remember now that I am working again I may not have time to comment on each of your posts, but I try damn hard to, for you have given me the curtesy and I shall reciprocate. If I hit the like button and don’t comment – I HAVE read your post I just can’t muster a response…it takes me a good 1.5 to 2 hours to read you all, like & comment and that’s before I even start to post anything. Without you I wouldn’t write…without your support, your encouragement and you commitment to me I would be nothing – to each and every one of you…I thank you and remember I enjoy your posts immensely and will continue to follow.

What irritates me # 3

December has certainly been a busy month for me – no not work – well the first few weeks of it – but I have blogged away merrily every day sometimes 7 a day.. with what you say?

 

Just stuff 🙂

This is another example – Pull up a comfy chair…

The other day I made the extremely brave move and went head first into modern technology and bought an IPhone 5. Now I am the kinda gal who was reasonably happy with her tiny button Nokia E71 even though I had to hold the phone at a distance so I could actually read the thumbnail size keys,  till the battery started dying on me.

Then it was a case of “Really why don’t you get an IPhone?” “Coz I don’t really need one that’s why”. “But there are so many apps you can have on them”. “Apps, Schnapps – why do I want an App that tells me what noises I make during my sleep, or how I’m going to look in 40 years from now – coz I won’t be here”. “Really mum…”

Ahh technology grabs us sooner or later and we are  forced cohersed into having the latest gadgetry , so yes I sucummbed. However this is not with this post is about…or is it?

Instead of walking into our the Mobile telephone dealer shop and standing around in a queue  for 20 minutes then going through the rigamarole of paperwork for an hour, I rang up the Telco. Mind you the staff of this Telco (like many others in Australia) have been transported have had their jobs made redundant and Sales and Customer Service  are moved to other countries.

I’m not naming which country, in case I offend anyone.

Anywhoo 3 hours later and 6 different departments and being hung up twice, it was ordered. They were advertising order by the 18th get it before Christmas. I ordered on the 18th and had one hell of time trying to actually receive by Christmas. “Oh no Miss Jenny the paperwork will take 5 – 10 working days”.

Not on the add.

Needless to say there was a considerable amount of fluffing around, annoyance (on my part) and frustration. This morning I received a text you phone will delivered to the local Post Office. Wonderful you say… no then she tells me I need the letter with the special bar code in order to pick that up and that will take yes 3-5 working days.

Not on the add or told to me during the ‘lengthy’ conversation.

So how does one get said phone BEFORE Christmas if I can’t pick it up until I get this letter (I was quite ummm irrate by this stage).

Hang on Miss Jenny.

Right then another 20 minutes…. could do my nails..

“Ok Miss Jenny – we will fax the letter to the Telco store, you pick that up (as if that is easy with Christmas shoppers in manic numbers) then you take that to the Post Office and you can collect”.

“Right” Miss Jenny said.

Sure enough within the hour the text came that the notification had been faxed to the Telco shop..off Mr. S and I went to collect (and had to do some more Xmas shopping of course) my idea not his.

Then onto the post office.

GIVE ME STRENGTH!!!

I walked in at 4.35pm. I walked out with phone at 5.10pm.

The idiot gentleman, I swear did not not know the computer system, 3 different forms of ID to collect said phone, which I had but he wouldn’t listen to me.

This went on…and on…and on…and on. I was losing it big time!

At 5.10 I walked out with my new technology under arm (after having to buy a cable to download all information off old phone into computer) so I could retrieve and put onto new phone (if it works that is).

I love technology…. I love Christmas……

She has made entries for Day 1 and Day 2. I am sure she won’t mind me re-posting her Day 1 Journey, for she is trying to battle her own demons and become a healthier, fitter her. Please give her encourage and support.

Blabbing on a Blog is easy trying to make a difference within yourself or to others is the hard part.

Blog of The Year Award 2012

BLOG OF THE YEAR AWARD BANNER – Has vanished from this post – apologies.

I was honoured to receive another Blog Of The Year Award.

I am accepting it from the lovely Ivonne .. you can see her here..  http://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com

I am sure many of you had read her poetry and have visited..but if you been remiss please go and take a peek.

I have received 3 Awards lately and though I cherish each and every one of them, they are hard work to put together 🙂

Please take that the way it was intended (with a smile).

The rules are below (which we are told you must not alter) so I will be a good girl and do as I am told.

My only conundrum is that I have nominated so many people that I am truly don’t know where to start from again.

So I am nominating only one,  because her post is all about how and who she is. I nominate her not because she is a fellow Australian (Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi) but because she simply is always supportive of others and she is an extremely brave woman in posting the issues that she suffers from.

So I grab this award and clench it to my heart from you Ivonne and now I pass to

http://depressionexists.com Paula and more so for her post  http://depressionexists.com/category/fight-depression

Yes ‘fraid so it is I again…with my obsession to write.

Yes it is me again …

I wonder how many of you get that notification that I have posted yet again (maybe I should get a job delivering mail?) and shudder.

If you have followed me and are over my ‘ramblings’ and have completely tuned out, switched off , un-followed or simply delete the email notification you receive from ramblings or you couldn’t be bothered reading I forgive you.

I understand you and I bare no grudges 🙂 for I do post a lot I am a prattler  – “talk at length in a foolish or inconsequential way”.

Some times my posts are informative (rare I know) sometimes they are lyrical, sometimes they are poetical and sometimes they are just well nonsense.

But come to think about it, if you have tuned out or struck me off your list you wouldn’t be receiving a notification of this post anyway, so eck I’m not disturbing your peace at all.

I honestly could write all day and night (I’m sure there’s medication for RSI). I cold prattle on forever. What obsesses me to do so? Whether it’s writing a Novel or a Post…it still remains the same an OBSESSION.

I now repost 10 reasons which I found on cassandrajade.wordpress.com site. I hope she doesn’t mind me using it and I thank her, for I find what she has written so very true.

1. You start re-reading every sentence that you write and then start re-writing every sentence, convinced that you are ‘improving’ them. I know when it’s time to stop when I have just written the same sentence ten times and I no longer even believe it to be written in English.

2. Your partner/best friend/child sends you an instant message asking if you will be eating breakfast/lunch/dinner.

3. You start arguing with your characters out loud: “No, you fool. You have to go…”

4. You have any kind of repetitive strain problem (wrist, arm, finger, neck, eyes).   Hence my medication comment.

5. You get home from your day job and your computer is turned on before you have put your bag down, taken your shoes off, fed your pets, or spoken to your children.

6. When you have told your friend/partner/child you will be ready to leave just after finishing one more sentence you write another couple of pages and forget you were meant to be finishing until they unplug the computer at the wall.

7. In your bag you have at least three notebooks and five pens, as well as a pencil in case all of you pens cease working on the same day.

8. Every single thing you read or watch is critiqued in terms of character, plot and setting.

9. When you meet someone for the first time you repeat their name, not to help you remember them but so that you can someday use that name in a story.

10. In conversation you directly reference events and characters you have been writing about (even though nobody else has read it yet).

So I post away day to day if I need to (yes I need to) I’m convincing myself it’s not a form of OCD.

Also I would like to mention October 24th I did a post about having 1,816 people read my ramblings, as of tonight I have had 3,022…Yes I am delighted, thrilled and feel very appreciative to all of you who continue reading.

Whoever would of thunk it!!!!

What can I say?

Whoever thought when I started this humble little blog site through WORDPRESS that I would have accumulated so many people reading my gibberish?? I for one certainly did not.

I have raved and ranted and dribbled for the last three and a bit months about not necessarily the most exciting or thought provoking topics on this planet since I started at the end of July and did not think that I would even have 1 follower, 1 like, or 1 comment,  but I have over that time, learnt that’s what a blog site is all about.

You can be but a singular voice amongst a casts of thousands.

So many sites about life, fears, phobias, photography, personal hardship, personal goals…such an array of works… everyone sharing their lives in the open for all to see.

Through this I have found an affinity with so many people.

If it wasn’t for your site I would never have met or known of people around this world and for that I express my gratitude.

So this Post/Blog is to say THANK YOU WORDPRESS for giving people like me a simple suburban woman living in Australia who lives a pretty much normal existence the power of speech… an outlet to be able to say what her thoughts are, publicise whatever is on her mind at any particular moment of the day or night.

I have met and made friends (though only in the ‘virtual world’)  because of this. People actually care and comment about what I have written ( at least I think they do) and through your site you have made it possible to read, absorb and learn from so many others that contribute to it.

Yes there are sites that have had thousands of visitors and thousands of followers…but I am content with whom have liked, commented and followed my little site of ramblings. I get to share my emotions, my photos, my thoughts with people around the world whom I shall probably never meet and to me that is PRICELESS. I treasure everyone who visits me, everyone who comments, everyone who follows. I did not start this site to have a thousand followers. This site is not about vanity. This site is being able to share with people in the hope that you may connect with them…not a numbers game.

Hopefully I can continue being able to reply to everyone’s comments as I feel that they are all special for taking the time out of their busy lives to follow me and comment on what I have written.

They have all made me laugh or shed a tear and be in awe of their writing skills.

There are SO many talented people in this world, and through your site you have made it possible to see them in an otherwise unknown realm.

I do not write this for adoration or to be recognised. I write this because I feel that you have allowed me to be who I am. You have never met me I am a number or a name logged into your site..nothing more nothing less..but you have opened doors. You have by way of having this site have allowed me to meet amazing people and read posts from people unknown to me…and because of that I feel I am part of their lives be it ever so small.

So I end saying Thank You WordPress for having the insight to allow people to write what they may, share what they will and in doing so meet new friends and enjoy others in this ‘virtual world of ours’.
