I am Ashamed

Kitchen window

The nieghbour’s kitchen window just over the fence.

And so I should be.

This morning, I did as I often do, I flicked a caterpillar off the passionfruit seedlings outside the kitchen window because they do destroy the plant.

Actually, there were two. The first bounced off the fence as normal, but the second sailed right over the fence into the neighbour’s open kitchen window.

I slunk away like a naughty school boy before I was discovered.

Then returned to take the photo.

I see the video clip of Simon and Garfunkel I posted a couple of posts ago has been taken down from YouTube for copyright reasons, I’ll have to have a hunt and find another.

Friday today, a quiet day in which nothing has happened. It tried to be sunny, and although the sun is still there it is cool.

The flat where the US ebola victim is living is being sanitised days after the discovery that he had ebola. This lackadaisical approach is exactly what could spread the virus. That flat should have been cleaned 10 minutes after the diagnosis on 30th Sept. Turns out that 10 people who had contact with him are at serious risk, with four of his relatives being quarantined at home.

Thirty British seamen are to finally received their Russian Ushakov medals from Russia, after the tortuous Arctic convooys during WWII. British regulations previously prevented the awards for historic acts; an exception has now been made for this case.

Sometimes regulations are so petty.

You can read the story on BBCNews it’s quite interesting and a part of WWII that is not commonly known.

The Swedes are about to stick an irritating finger in Israel’s nose by being the first long term EU country to recognise the State of Palestine. If this is the beginning, Israel won’t like that one bit.

The pope belives in fairies. Okay… that’s fine.

The idea of talks in Hong Kong as protesters have been beaten by thugs  purportedly sent the police have been dashed. The hopes that this issue will just fade away seem to be further from the reality than some people think.

Banksy has got up the nose of a local British council.

His latest work was ordered destroyed ny the mayor after a complaint that it was racist..

Banksy anti-immigration birds mural destroyedIt was, and done with a purpose to make people face themselves.

Racism is becoming a problem in the world. It has always been there, but below the surface, now the cauldron is boiling.

It might be worthwhile pointing out that we were all black once before the peoples that lived away from the equator lost their need for colour and became white.

The time has dwindled away. I must look at getting ready to go to class.

Later.

5 Must do Blogging Tips

Once again, I have visited a blog that espouses ‘blogging tips’.

There are thousands, nay probably millions, of blogs and blogs with posts about blogging tips. And, the surprising this is they ll seem to get plenty of readers, likes and follows.

I can’t see why I shouldn’t join the madding crowd.

And I look forward to having lots of wonderful comments, visitors and likes too.

Five Tips to Ensure your Blogivity.

Blogging Tip #1

coffee-cigarettes_00387047Coffee, one cannot blog or write descent material without having decent coffee at hand. Coffee and the by necessity cigarette are essential blogging tools. If your posts lack that essential caffeine hint, then sadly your blog will fail.

The coffee needs to be real coffee; instant or Starbucks will not cut the mustard and will result in mediocre posts.

A pussy is a must, if it’s a wet pussy, so much the better

Blogging Tip #2

Pussy!

You’re blog must have the quintessential cat.

It may be your cat, it can be a LOL Cat, all the better.

It can even be a scraggy moggy found while trolling the blogosphere.

The cat may be neurotic, or one offering philosophical advice; but the bottom line is it must have a cat.

Blogging Tip #3

Whatever your post is about, there must be an image of some description.

Blog posts that are just text are boring.

The image may/may not be related to the post, but it must be linked in some way.

Images should be spaced alternatively, or people will think you are just taking the mickey.

If you don’t have an image, people may think you are quackers or the type of person who plays with a rubber ducky in the bath, which, by the way proves that you are quackers.

Blogging Tip #4

Know your audience, target your posts to your audience. Once you have got a visitor you must keep them captured, enraptured and literally trussed up in what you have to say, or indeed not say.

You don’t have to be as charismatic as that Biblical fellow, but he does have a lot of followers (he must have good SEO).

But once you’ve captured your audience, you have to give them something worthwhile, or not, to keep them entranced.

A sure-fire way to keep your audience, is post regularly and often. And write your posts ‘off the cuff’; don’t plan them. Planned posts often come across as bullshit and the world has enough of that already.

Don’t forget to communicate; if your visitor leaves a comment, acknowledge it, appreciate it, thank them. If you can’t think of anything to say, just ūüôā

Blogging Tip # 5

SEO Рyou must know your SEO. Sex, Enigma and One can of inspiration. If you are not inspired, your readers will know. Therefore you keep them spell-bound with sex and the extraordinary. That other stuff about search engines not finding your material is superfluous. If you have Sex, Enigma and One can of inspiration,  you will be found.

Some people prefer to have an inspiration key fitted to their keyboard. That’s all very well, but it doesn’t give the same gratification as opening a can and dipping your finger in; it’s a bit like that Nutella feeling, gooey but nice.

Blogging Tip #6

Be inconsistent, eclectic, keep people guessing.

Tell them one thing and do another, like have a sixth blogging tip when you promised five.

Don’t just dream to be out for lunch, go the whole hog and go viral.

Summary

My pearls maybe wisdom, maybe not, you may get more readers, maybe not, but you will have the satisfaction of blogging. You deserve another coffee.

NB: Some of the above is not nonsense, most of it is.

Remember, when in doubt ūüôā
