What it takes


In an attempt to not be the spam blogger but also find a balance with what I share the line has become very clear. So here I am sharing with you what it takes to get a rise out of me. What you need to have in order for me to like something, reblog something, comment on something.

Liking something.
I find it fun to like things. Even things that I know bother me but the fact that someone put it up and caused my brain to think about it, no matter how much I hate it or love it. I will like it. Posts that make me think are fun to run into. But that is as far as I will go. I will like it because it made me think.

Commenting on something

I comment on things when I feel strongly about the topic. When I want to bring attention to something or when I feel that there has been a violation. It does not matter to me that I may offend, insult, or basically make someone cry. I could care less. I am commenting my opinion and my thoughts from the research that I have done throughout my life. I do not apologize for what anyone else thinks about the words that I type. I work with words daily, in my writing, in my teaching, in my life. Which is why looking back through my posts I tell people to read, reread, and then read again to what I stated, as to often than not the misunderstanding is that the individual did not read or did not comprehend my words.  But back to the topic at hand. I comment on things that draw me in. And no, it does not have to be words. Pictures, video, heck even a good title has gotten me to read it and make a comment.

Reblogging

I reblog friends that talk to me. That means if we interact with comments the more that I will reblog you. I do not reblog everything as there would be not much time for my own posts to get noticed. I do reblog others more than some but this is due to the fact that some people post more blogs and make a larger signal. But still there must be that line of communication for me to reblog. If we have talked if we have even crossed paths on a post somewhere and started to follow the chances are I will reblog your stuff. Talking helps folks.

Do I expect you to reblog me. I would like it, to that extent I will not lie. But no it is not an expectation. Still the more I reblog someone I do hope they take notice of it and decide that some of my works deserve the notice to be reblogged, commented on and liked. On an interesting topic, my words are mine and if I insult you, treat you like crap, or all in all tell you to fuck off, it is not the responsibility of the post hoster, if I am doing a guest post, or mine. Should you know me then you would understand that I do not insult, treat people like crap, or tell people to fuck off unless they deserve it. And nothing is more deserving than talking BS, trying to tell me or anyone else to change the way they behave because it offends your sensibilities.
When it comes to comments on faith, spirituality, religious matters, I default to my atheistic position. Bring me proof, verifiable, falsifiable, and testable by anyone, anywhere in the world.

When it comes to science, medicine, engineering, theoretical or not, bring me recent published papers from peer reviewed magazines.

If it is just a discussion you want then that is fine. And the final note, just because I do not agree with you is not the reason that I may insult you. Agreement or disagreement on a topic is not enough. So think clearly and post clearly. It is the only way we can keep blogs from degrading to the twitter world where everyone just starts spamming and following for the simple fact of getting more views.

Getting followers is nice but if you have 10000 followers but only 10 views per day, then there is something wrong.

BookCoverImageThere was much that she loved about me or so she liked to say. Still the dislikes and challenges is what brought her closer to me and towards the approaching day or so she reminded me daily.

There was no way for me to fight it either. Every bubble I tried to form she busted. All my fears of the coming change, she put to rest. She had a way about seeing the world that I needed. No matter how much I tried to deny it, the truth was clear.

Dhara andd Greg


Many of you would remember the show Dharma and Greg. If you don’t then I recommend you pop over to youtube and enjoy a show or three. Now the premise is s free spirited woman and a conservative man get married on a whim. What I found interesting was the clear view that Dharma and her family were more petty and more egotistic than Greg’s family. They mask it in the oh see the world in a new light but the message is clear that they ware pushing their beliefs on others and turn out to be more hypocritical than Greg’s family.

I find it sad to say that I have not met a free spirit who did not take offense when you did not agree with their way of life and may the gods help you should you disagree with them on politics or the environment. Where many of the ones that I have met have argued points based on hearsay and anti-capitalism when the data shows very clearly that the more economic ties a country has with another and that people have with others the less likely they are to go to war.

Tell me what you think.

People


There are many times that people want to say, “Hey, you , yes you I am following you and you are following me. At least say Coverfronthello. Clicking the follow button is easy, it is harder to comment here and there with the rush of posts from so many people that you follow.”

Well I promise that I will be more proactive in commenting and building on our relationship. And I have posted bellow the links to all the blogs that I follow who in turn follow me. It’s a part people. Pick up your name tag and say hello. Post a link to your most current post or the post you would like to see read and commented on. Let’s breathe life into our day by meeting each other.
