…is where I’m at. You know, that point on a blog where nobody’s watching. Well, i think it’s four people in the whole world, all of whom know me from another site. I am pretty much nattering away to myself, changing header and page style three times a day, (as I discover new bits of the site – fantastic support pages here).
I found the Preview Button at last! And the Save Draft one. I don’t want my typos on Google. Oh, the shame! I found my comments too, mainly because the site helpfully sent me an email with a link – but now i know where they are. I’m still not good at finding anyone else’s blog unless i already know the name, and haven’t found a good ‘by blogname’ search function, but I’ve found the link to the BlogsOfTheDay and GrowingBlogs. There are some lovely blogs around. And of course, then there’s a new favourite, TackyWeddings.
I actually ended up here because of Jenny the Bloggess. When i saw her blog, while looking for a funny pic of a fascist – they were thin on the ground – but Google offered funny racist as an alternative, and a link to a category on Jenny’s blog called Her Cat’s Toes, which was pretty irresistible. It turns out her vet was kinda racist, in a weird way and I just laughed and laughed.
The minute I had my breath back, I realised my kind of writing didn’t have to stay on an adult site just because i say fuck swear – after all, i’m really not interested in titillating anyone. If people don’t mind Jenny, it’s cool, i can come outside – I’m nowhere near as outrageous as her. Anyone who complains about me – well, I’ll just say, for heaven’s sake, am I blogging about giant labia? (Give me time, lol.)
Using Humor or even Humour as a search term for good blogs doesn’t seem to work as well as a serendipitous click on Jenny’s blog. What other people think is funny doesn’t do for me. I think it’s internet delusion time. You saying you’re beautiful/very good looking/funny/well-hung will not make you so. Trolls saying it doesn’t do it either.
On the other hand, me saying it, like “I’m hawt, literate, trilingual*, and moderately amusing”, does make it so. Yes, this is the marvel that is Stinginthetail Fascism® – welcome to my blog. World domination? Pfft. I’ll settle for a new rental house without mould.
I not actually that autocratic in real life – i just shoot all who disagree allow dissent. *smiles beatifically* I like to make people think, too. (You will think, we haff wayz of making you think!)
If any labia were harmed during the making of this blog, *looks innocent* I’m pretty sure it’s Jenny’s fault.
*trilingual – i am reasonably fluent in UK, US, and Australian English.

Oh YES, I just figured out how to stop it double-spacing
every time I hit Enter. It’s Shift-Enter – same as Word.
