Conversational blogging

ok right what to blog about? thinking
ummmmm yeah well can't not blog can you?
I mean you have have to actually blog something but what ?
lets see it rained a bit today ...
no totally boring no one wants to hear you talk about rain
we had chops in gravy for dinner
big grin
nope boring again
well what can I blog about then you are the expert what do I blog about?
rolling eyes
Me na not an expert ...those are previous drips under pressure .. shut your face about being wet thank you very much
How about this .. got a new keyboard today it's got letters on it
big grin
Ok what are you a geek or something come on a new keyboard real exciting that is
Well you could just talk to yourself that's a blog
hey that's my line ok think we should be quiet now and listen to what others have to say
They will say we are crazy
batting eyelashes

Then again talking to yourself is the best way to blog to others specially with a conversational blog I mean you know have to actually talk to someone while you are typing and when the only person in the room is yourself who else is there
Yes I am slightly crazy but that's one way that I blog how I get my thoughts across to those who read what I write ((OWW just banged my elbow on the desk

Right that totally broke my train of thought ..what was I going to say now ??
Oh yeah that's right
Do you have a way that you blog in a conversational way?
Do you write like you talk or do you pretend there is someone else there, imaginary people that you are talking/typing to?

where do we go where have we been?

As you know BA has been around a while now, we started on 360 as a little joke and I had so many emailing me sending me PM's on 360 "add this" and "do this" so along with my own posts on there a lot of the posts on BA's 360 page were thought up by others some even written by others under the BA handle .... ha ha you thought I wrote everything on there didn't you well I didn't others had the password for the
BA 360 page, it wasn't always me whistling

But here though, it is mainly me well seems like it anyway and yes I know you can't be anonymous on here but the anonymous name of BA doesn't mean the same as "hiding" it's more like "Hello my name is ..... and I'm an addict"

We want you to stand up and tell us what you like to blog about, why you blog what puts you in the mood so to speak hee hee
Bloggers Anonymous has been around since when ..June 06 a joke a little play on the addiction that we then had for 360 that we still have for blogging where ever we are where ever we come from even those form MsN who **shock** don't blog and seeing as we are going into our 3rd year now I want more member participation Joy was always great for that, we've lost Joy into the great blog in the sky, Dana well she's somewhere on the Rez , Snow Bunny no idea don't think she knows either but Susan(Red7) myself and Mister E are still around we will be as well great bloggers never die .. or is that once 360 famous always 360 famous ?I don't know
Anyway we are are still around, thing is right so are you guys and you do know how to post on a group right ...right you do don't you haven't forgotten or anything?rolling eyes
You do know how yes .. you should if you looked at the last album posted here
ok you do so no excuses ok

What is you favourite blogging subject?
Why do you blog?
What do you like out of communicating the most with others via blogging?
Wait one second there before you answer those in a comment.. you where going to weren't you
shame on you ... I know you lot before you comment think about it you could be posting a new item yourself ...oh yes you could, no thinking about it you CAN post a new thing all by yourself batting eyelashes

That's where we will go from here that's the new years resolution for this group more from you and less from me besides my fingers hurt nowwhew!

Oh and Happy New Year

Readability and size

One of the most important things for anyone reading your page is readability
If they can't read what you've written they won't read it

Now I've seen a couple pages today (yes I've been looking) that where either blue on a dark background or had a flashing gif background I opened that one and went "OH [swear removed]" and closed the page didn't even bother to really look at what was written
The blue text at least I could highlight it but the flashing background oh boy way too much sorry

Of course size (which does matter) comes into play as well, before I post I allways choose "Normal" from the font size drop down list makes the text a little bigger and easier to read

Yes I could because I use Firefox choose [View > Page style > No Style] or hold down the ctrl key and scroll my mouse wheel so text is bigger and on a plain background but hey lazy person here I like to read things straight up

So if you are a theme designer or you are just starting or maybe you don't know anything about CSS and use Custom Colors or a default background, please make sure that things are easily read
If you have to cross your eyes and squint at your page to read it then chances are others will have too as well so make it easy on everyone remember when you are posting what color your page is it's an easy mistake to make because compose is black on white to make the text colour a dark color by habit .. or even yellowish orange or brown..

You may have to highlight some parts of this so you can read it

Blog topic

Was watching the TV last night and one of those shows came on where they "do up" the house for a family who is deserving you've seen the kind of show I'm talking about
Anyway this particular one their son had fallen into the pool when he was two years old, he lived but was severely brain damaged this was around three years ago he's now 5 years old, can hardly move, can't talk can't do any of the things a normal 5 year old can, he couldn't even smile when they brought in the Wiggles

Now I'm just thinking here seriously I don't know what I would have done if that had happened to one of my kids it's not a life that I would like them to lead
What this family have done though is set up a foundation for families with seriously disabled children because a lot do end up in homes the family's can't cope, don't think I could have either.
A child's wheelchair and be as much if not more than $5000 for a child with that kind of disability, this foundation helps with things like that and also teaches pool safety.

Be a different story if the child was born like that but wouldn't it be in the back of your mind I wish they had died in the accident because then at least they wouldn't have to live the rest of their life like that
An adult has lived their life a child hasn't but what kind of life is it ?
Someone like Stephen Hawkins who's condition worsens over the years or Christopher Reeves who's accident caused his paralysis but who's brains still function (functioned in Christopher Reeves case) they have money, a lot more than this little boy does maybe he is a genius, maybe he is the next Hawkins

Maybe maybe not who knows but for a child from 2 years old to live their life like that unable to move hardly remembering that they could without the voice synthesisers and the electronic gadgets that a lot of money can buy, this child has to live his whole life without communication what kind of a life is that?

Now I'm not saying everyone who's so disabled should be euthanized can't say that you wouldn't get the Hawkin's of the world if you did that
What I'm saying is it is slightly cruel don't you think not to give him the best kind of gadgets that would help him actually LIVE and communicate with the rest of the world the body might not work but the brain does.

What are your thoughts on this?
Could you cope?
Would you know that your child was desperately trying to communicate with you?
Could you cope financially for the rest of your child's life?
If you have a disabled child, what are your thoughts?

If you want to blog about this on your own page you can you don't have to answer here
