I have to post this very REAL and well written post by Fuzzygalore. The Motorcyclist blogger I met the other night here in NY. Her writing kicks my ass in the blogging world but then again as we both discussed this not a competition. I can at least bow my head to someone who really knows how to reach out to her readers. What an amazing skill and gift. I am so disappointed I forgot to take a selfie pic of the two of us but Fuzzy did in fact post her version of us…please continue to reading to find out. 🙂
I was given permission to post this on our blog. Please read. This might be a post not many even comment on…sad but true. Too intense? Too political? I don’t know but hope it’s read.
It is very heart warming and humbling to know our blog about everything can influence a person like to this to share their horrific story and then thank us for publicly posting who we are….people are amazing and this is one reason I try to diversify our BLOG.
I have been reading your blog now for a while and have really enjoyed it. I just wanted to share with you how much it means to me and to thank you for the time you have put into it – sharing so much of your life. Also to Cheryl for her work with the It get’s better video. I had seen the video first and then somehow stumbled upon your blog. It has meant the world to me to see your lives together as normal and healthy – something to be celebrated and lived. In the video I had never heard women speak of their lives and sexuality in such a positive way and it captivated me. Growing up – gay only meant men and it was directly connected with rejection, Continue reading “Why do we BLOG???”
If you like something like it….or better yet please feel free to comment. Also, check out the F800 Album page up in the header. We add new pics all the time.
If you are trying to navigate around this BLOG of ours…there are an overwhelming amount of posts and can make it quite daunting to try and find something you might want to read.
Why am I not surprised by these numbers? Is it because I am on of those BLOGGERS and use almost all social media? Do I have a life? Am I missing out on the world? I doubt it…I blog at 3 in the morning before work! 😉
These may not be exact STATS but you get the point.

From the WordPress Team and for your information as well!
It’s now much easier for you and your commenters to keep track of the conversations you’re involved in across WordPress.com. Some recent tests have shown that by subscribing commenters to new comments by default, they are more likely to stay engaged and come back and comment more on your blog. With that knowledge, we’ve changed the default comment following behavior to help you get more conversations going on your blog.
We made the initial changes last week and after great feedback from you we just launched an update. Here’s how it works:
- By default, posting a comment will now subscribe you to receive follow-up comments via email for that specific post, keeping you updated on the conversation. This is indicated by the checked box in the comment form.
- If you have a WordPress.com account, you now have a global setting to change this so that by default you will not be subscribed. If you don’t have an account, then you can create one over here.
- If you don’t want email notifications for a thread, just uncheck the box when you post your comment. If you’ve disabled the feature, you can also subscribe to a specific thread by checking the box in the comment form.
