Just a quickie today.......a plea for enlightenment. I am confused, bemused, baffled, puzzled and perhaps even hornswaggled (if I knew what THAT meant) and also pissed off. I hate it when I feel like this. After months of fuming, fretting and much wringing of the hands, mind fraught with anxiety about the shutting down of Google Reader and agonizing over whether to try Feedly or Bloglovin and simply not understanding what mechanism had been providing me with access to all the blogs I read and follow, etcetera, etcetera, etcetra, July 1st has come and gone and I seem to still have access to my beloved blogs via Blogger.com same as always. WTF?????? Needless to say, I am ecstatic over the fact that nothing has had to change for me......I do not need Feedly or Bloglovin or Whatever......tenks gott. BUT..... Can anyone explain to me where Google Reader impinges on my life if it does, indeed impinge? Sigh.
Hell and damn.....I used to write these damned programs and used to understand how they linked together and how they could access stuff stored here and there......of course, that was back in the dark ages so I am willing to admit ignorance and willing to learn. This whole brouhaha makes no sense to me and the perplexity is driving me bonkers. Please, someone......explain in simple terms how Google Reader fit into the blog world or any other world. My gratitude will be boundless......I might even offer a bribe.....I mean prize. Eagerly waiting, Perplexed Bonkersville, CA.
Maverick of a weird, but wonderful family. Have managed to stay alive for an astounding 86+ years kept alive by a passionate interest in many things and a sense of humor.
Have led 2 or 3 separate lives,the first 40 years as a starving artist, ceramist, and graphic designer. At age 40 a matchbook cover that said "Be A Computer Programmer" inspired me to go back to school and emerge as a binary fanatic. Loved my work, had a wonderful 20 year career as programmer and trouble shooter. At the same time I had the chance to meet, befriend and marry Jazz Cornetist Pete Daily,an idol of my youth, whom I had worshipped in my young life. Lost him to cancer after 11 wonderful (and sometimes awful) years. Retired in 1989 and had 20 years of fantastic travel adventures all over the world. Now I crochet afghans, tend my garden, my 3 cats, the neighborhood birds and squirrels, a flock of voracious hummingbirds and assorted wildlife like possums and raccoon families who come nightly to my Porch Buffet. A great life, and it ain't over yet !....(after all, I have just discovered Blogging....)
