Our little Gold Country Girls blog is six years old today. I began writing it on this date in 2007.
Today's post is number 2039.
For quite a good long while, I posted every single day, but when I started back to work nearly two years ago, I simply didn't have the time any longer. It really bothered me at first (it was a self-imposed goal), but now I have had to settle for - and accept - the fact that I will post as often as I am able, and realize that I am doing the best I can.
I never wrote about it at the time, but a while back I was forced to change my settings and I realize that the change made it more difficult and time-consuming for people to post comments. Our comments took a drop after that, and it made me kind of sad.
I truly hated to do it, but I was getting as many as 20-30 weirdo spam garbage comments every single day, some with links to probably pornographic sites ( I never clicked on any of them, of course - I was afraid to!), and I had to go in every day and delete every single one of them.
I just couldn't deal with it any more.
And if by chance you are able to leave a comment every now and then, despite the fact that it takes a little more time than it used to and isn't QUITE as easy, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With complete and utter sincerity and gratitude, Heidi
