Falala and la di da
Today I am writing about something that is interesting to me. (as opposed to my other blogs...not being interesting to me?) That was kind of dumb. I love music. Not all kinds of music, I am very simple, I pretty much like country and a few other songs like the oldies. But I really do like music. I was reading a blog one day and one of the writers "pet peeves" was music on blog sites. I almost took mine off, almost decided to just quit blogging because I didn't fit in to the standards of blogging. And this person gets quite a few comments on her bloggs. In fact, most of the comments on that post was they do not like music on the blogs sites either. I am often so insecure about myself and my abilities to do anything on the computer so I almost...almost stopped. Then I remembered something. I blog for me, not everyone else. I blog because I like to hear myself talk and ramble. I blog because I needed a place to put my pictures and just have fun since I have retired. I did not know people were reading my blog other than Cara in Texas and Linda in Nebraska and of course Jill my cousin and neighbor! Then I started branching out and found out that other people will come over and visit. And I started visiting with them. That is actually how I found out that you can put music on a blog post. And I liked it. I used to go to this blog and just listen to her music while I played on the computer. But I have found a lot of people really do not like the music. It is too distracting. I agree. Rather I should say...I understand. I wonder if it doesn't bother me because for 21 plus years I listened to AM/FM radio, police radio, talked on the phone and listened to/for people as I am driving around town in my police car. Do you think that might be why it doesn't bother me? I actually listen to my play list, watch TV and read blogs or play on the computer. Weird huh? But I really do want to know how many of you are bothered by the music. Will I stop it? Probably not right now, but I might later on. I wish I knew how to fix it to only play if the viewer wanted it to play. Otherwise it was on the stop mode. So I put a poll on the side. Please vote and it does not hurt my feelings if everyone says they don't care for the music. I am just curious. I promise I will not change things just because everyone says so, I am not that big of a conformist, but I am a person that just wonders about people.
Another thing I want to know is....do you know what a flat wallet is? Do you have one, do you like it? Would you like to have one? How much are they were you live? What colors have you seen? What color do you like most? You can not hardly find them around here they are so popular and yes I got one. For my birthday from my husband. and yes I love it! I heard they are going to be featured on Oprah's Favorite list this fall. I was just curious as to what you think and know. And I needed something to blog about!
Don't forget to vote...with or without comment.
