What’s this? A new post on Beyond the Sphere? What is the world coming to?
Anon said I’d heard Beyond the Sphere had become a reblogging site, posting only old posts and no new content.
Mr X said I suppose it makes sense to repost old material from time to time, but for a whole week? And on Beyond the Sphere, of all places? Unheard of!
Mrs G said I won’t be visiting Beyond the Sphere again if they are only reposting old stuff. I come here for new content, not outdated posts.
Dr No said Although I enjoy a trip down memory lane like the next man, reading old posts doesn’t feel the same as reading a new post, even if I haven’t read the post before. It’s the last line ‘Originally posted on…’ that does it for me. It spoils the buzz.
H said I’m happy reading any post on Beyond the Sphere, old or new! At least I can get to read something without having to search through a decade’s worth of posts to find it.
I think it’s time for a quick explanation for my current absence from Blogland.
Z said Another absence? You’re always on a blogging break!
Thank you, Z. I’m not always on a blogging break, but I am for the time being. Only for a week or two to recharge my batteries. I’m not away away, by the way. I pop in every now and again, to see the latest post in the reader, but I am away where it comes to replying to comments or posting new stuff. That will all return soon, however!
When I return, I’ll have lots to catch up on… replying to comments… commenting… posting… catching up on my favourite storylines on other blogs… catching up with other bloggers… seeing great photographs and creations… learning new things! It all happens in Blogland, so I can’t stay away for too long. And, the place is so inspirational that goes without saying… even though I just did!
So, if like Anon, Mr X, Mrs G, Dr No and H, you’ve missed me around Blogland, this is a very brief explanation why. There may be a few more reposts before I return, selected by a very advanced algorithm of my own making, which works a lot better than a few of the more recent algorithms we’ve heard about. They are picked at random.
Worry not! I will be back and replying etc very soon. Until then, take care!
And Happy Friday!
