Not only do I have friends and family who have supported me – physically, emotionally and spiritually throughout my life (even when I was undeserving of such support) but since I began blogging in March 2011, I’ve a whole new crop of friends on the Internet who have done the same. Thank you.
And even persons whom I admire and respect have, on occasion, visited Guffaw in AZ. And made nice comments. As I said at the inception of the blog, I expected no one to read it. I still am pleased and surprised daily that someone would bother.
AND, I get email. Not an overwhelming amount, but some. Very few comments and emails from spammers (knock-on-wood).
But, some folks apparently don’t stop by the blog often enough to see what has been addressed. I certainly don’t wish to turn anyone off or offend anyone, but sending me stuff for possible inclusion in my blog – when I’ve already written about it multiple times – wastes both our times. Sorry.
It’s similar to the email that you know from the heading contains a joke, but the joke it turns out is from one, two, three, or 50 years ago. A joke my father told me.
One of my correspondents insisted she knew so much more from the ‘Net than I. Until I told her I was disabled and spent hours daily on the computer. Reviewing links for news, humor, and over 100 blogs. Daily. While she has cut back, she still sends me cartoons from last year. Sigh.
I am still very lucky that someone would bother to send me stuff. But, please look before you leap.
