My helper was over this evening and she showed me that all the blogs I follow ARE on my reader when they post! When you get to the bottom wait a sec for the arrow thingy to slip back up and this can continue until the end of your list. (Bethany, take note!) There are just a few who live in other domains, I think, who can only post via e-mail. There must be a place where bloggers can request to be on others’ e-mails. Correct me, gang, if I’m off base.
Concerning the following which I posted earlier, I learned that for updates on all the blogs I follow to appear on my Reader (instead of many on e-mail), I must transition from .com to .org for $99. Just thought you’d like to know.
I recently dropped a number of sites I had been following because they hadn’t posted in a long time. As I dropped well below 300 blogs followed, I discovered that not everyone on my followed list gets listed in my Reader when they post. If that’s you I apologize. I checked everyone in my reader frequently, while entirely oblivious to others I thought I was actively following.
I wonder how many posts you can follow and they will all be covered via the Reader.
When I first started blogging folks were curious why I had trouble posting to d’Verse. I found out why: I was trying to post my poem from the page I wrote it on which wasn’t a page, I guess, but a dashboard.
I think I’ve discovered another innocent error involving my pages. I have 15 or 16 pages and no one told me how to get material on those pages. So, when I come across something that I have a page for, I post it there and not on my main blog. Even if I’ve re-blogged, I post it on the relevant page. I’m going to pause in this post now and explore more about what and how I do it and maybe someone can tell me how I should do it. I’ll be back…
Did I lose other followers?
I received the following from Brian today:
Was your site hit by the recent hack, you disappeared from my Reader. I had to re-follow you. Please make a back up of all your posts, they are to valuable to be messed with.
Thanks, I’ll ask folks. -Nan

Why don’t you just e-mail me and I’ll read what the address is? I’m firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried email@example.com.
I’ve noticed that I’m stuck in the good company of poets who only visit me when I have a poem up my sleeve or somewhere, preferably on Dverse. How did this happen? What happened to the great population of octogenarians who have nothing better to do than fiddle with computer keys. Maybe they’re playing piano keys instead? Sorry, count me out. Musician I’m not, just as I’m not lot of things….Republican, Spanish-speaking, extrovert, yankee….I could go on and on, literally. But you knew that, didn’t you! So, does that mean you’re a bored curious poet just dropping by to see what I’m up to? If so, welcome. If not, double welcome! Edith Smith http://www.Butterfly-Fun-Fact.com
THE YELLOW AND PURPLE CATERPILLAR
(I’ve already gotten myself in trouble–killer?)…
Reminds me of Phyllis Diller
(especially due to her last name)
…this killer caterpillar–not caterpillar killer (you note the difference?)
was devouring an innocent leaf one night
when he saw an owl
also on the prowl.
Our killer said nnnnnnnnnnnnf
and the owl replied WHO?
Impatient, our killer yelled nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnf!!!
The owl on the prowl, you see,
not unlike you and me,
didn’t like sass so
bit him in the ass, leaving
only a purple caterpillar.
I spoke recently at a Writers Fair in my home town. One of many presentations, it was videotaped. Recently I reviewed the tape and to my surprise discovered that I make horible, gibbering faces when I address an audience. For example:
Really now, would you trust anything this shifty-eyed creature wrote?
Or this one?
I’m glad I’m blogging now instead of publishing books. This way, no one has to eyeball the real me.
