S – Starting this blog has been not dissimilar to becoming first time mothers. Having created this monster we then looked to friends for comments and guidance. The upshot is that, like rearing children, there is no right or wrong way to write a blog but lots of challenges to be overcome. Everyone giving you different advice, but no one offering any practical help other than Rich Baby, our wonderful IT guru, whose last text referred to turning his attention to the black art of promoting the Fifty Shades of Rural Dorset (his name for our blog)!! Words have been bandied about such as passion, dedicated to your subject and time consuming. A lot of discussion has been directed at our texts not being current. This is because we started compiling them some time ago and, due to our reference to the weather (and lambs dying of cold), they would leave our readers a little baffled if they were not dated correctly. As our writing gathers pace we should be up-to-date soon and, hopefully, be blogging in the present!
We notice that Cherry Menlove really does write what she is thinking (and straight from the heart). We have taken a leaf out of her book and are doing the same. I have been helping Camilla with her cleaning today (as she has just had the life changing operation she has been waiting for; yes she can now sneeze without her gusset being awash). Whilst cleaning we discovered a Pet Correction Spray that made a perfect hissing noise whilst dispensing a blast of air, for correcting those challenging pets. We both, however, agreed that it would be perfect of getting idle teenagers out of bed on a school day.
Yet again I glance at our blog and we are being told that “Zemanta is inactive! You need to write your blog post in Visual mode for Zemanta to work! What oh what does this one mean?
