BlogTalkers: Okay, now THIS we've been to before...

THIS POST IS FOR BLOGTALKERS... another meme... if you're looking for my "Blog Your Blessing Sunday", please scroll down a little bit to the next post.


This week's question/request...

Please tell us: What story is on the front page of your local newspaper? Do you think the event is worthy of front page coverage?

I hate having to start off a post with an apology of sorts, but I'm going to... Karen, of "BlogTalkers", had this to say...

Yes, I realize this question has been asked before. But I think it’s important to take a step back from our self-imposed worlds (i.e. blogs) once in a while and take a look at what’s going on in the world, don’t you?

No, I don't.

Mostly because, I already do on a regular basis.

Also, because if I want news, I go to news sites... in fact, MANY of my inspirations come from news events... and why on earth do I need a "meme" to revisit this?

Once was fun... look at the "local" situation and be forced to comment on it... but that's the key... I felt FORCED to comment on it... I don't like being forced.

If this meme was about to become "Local News Event Sunday", fine... but it's not... it's supposed to be original questions to make me think and be more creative... not to re-hash old topics... even if they're based from "news".

I know... I'm being harsh... but dear goodness...

Okay, I have to examine this... AND NO DISRESPECT TO KAREN...

I already do a meme on Sundays... and there's been confusion over it already... below this, you'll find my "Blog My Blessing Sunday"... and many people, okay - without reading, have "commented" on my previous BlogTalkers post assuming it was my blessing... and it isn't...

Now, I know that Karen DOES have some original questions... but ignored them in favour of pulling out an oldy... and that kinda grates on me little...

Also, and we didn't mention it earlier, but she attributed one question to Sue... despite the fact that Sue hadn't submitted it... which was puzzling.

I hate to say this, but this is my last BlogTalkers... the reason being that the confusion is too bad when parallelled with the "Blessing" post and I'm confused as to why an old question would be dredged up over a new one... amongst other things.

Oh, and yes, I've submitted a question that has not yet been used... but this isn't my concern... like I said, it's based on, for me, memes bringing out my muse... making me "go original"... think about something I haven't thought of before.

...and I've been here this week... not all that long ago...

Put those two things into a shaker with some of my other concerns, mix well, and I'm having a hard time coming up with a reason to continue doing "BlogTalkers".

So, sad to say, I'm not "BlogTalking" anymore...

It's been fun... but sometimes, you gotta move on...

I DO NOT WISH TO TAKE AWAY FROM BLOGTALKERS! I mean, it's enjoyable for many... I'm sure Sue will stick with it... but for me, it's time...

Thanks for the blog-fodder...

Should we go back to concentrating on and letting folks know how things are going with our bus? (Kinda back to the good ol' days?)
