I have a movie you should see,

And this will give the news

That in my Blogger blog it be,

Which I so seldom use;

The hero is a bright young spark

With quite a lot to say,

But when it comes to match his bark

With bite, he runs away!

The sounds which then emerge are quite

Incredible to hear –

He is a very noisy sprite

When overcome with fear!


I opened the Blogger one at about the same time as WP, and for a while I had a bit of fun there with flash fiction and poetry.  When those people faded, though, I found it very difficult to trace any further kindred spirits, and just about abandoned it.  Recently I tried a few posts, but the result gave all the wild activity one finds in a buried chunk of granite – which is also how my original LD blog has gone since the winds of change played havoc with it.

    Can’t you bring the videos into this blog, Col?


  2. I am really missing the interaction of the old LD blogging platform!! I hope you will enjoy th erest of the week, Col!

    Who has the time to run two blogs? Certainly not me. It’s all I can do to keep up with this one. 🙂


  4. Very glad you’re here in WP, Col: it simply wouldn’t be the same without your wordplay…

    I’ve basically given up on LD as well, it seems pointless to post there as there is almost no interaction. Plus there’s so much spam.
    Loved the rhyme 🙂

    That was screamingly funny 😉
    As for leaving a comment, I tried, but really, not going through the hassle of those stupid words, and then, as with LD, it tells me I used the wrong code…
    Think I’ll stick to WP – at least it works most of the time!!

    Other blogging platforms don’t appeal to me as much as WP ~ some seem downright antagonistic to people who want to leave a comment.

    Something else I don’t like about Blogger is the word verification 😉

    I popped over recently to my old LD blog and found that it was a blog now.
    The one advantage was that I could back-up the old posts and import them into another WP blog as everything doesn’t work on the 24 blog. Categories, tags and followers were lost, I am spammed every-time I post, I cant get the subscription to work, etc.

    I’m glad I left when I did.

    I have a blogger blog and have not updated it recently but have noticed a few people going over to it.
