That’s how to get attention, right? And apparently page reach, which is what it’s all about these days over on Facebook. Shame it was a post of terrible ideas rather than something useful.

Look! Hello Kitty air freshener. Vanilla. From SuperCheap Auto. Get one!

I have a session of birthday dumplings scheduled for Sunday. I intend to die of dumpling poisoning ahead of my 32nd birthday on Tuesday.

Have a good weekend!

Remember when we all left comments on blogs? I looked at some of my old blog posts, and they’re full of discussions, friendly notes, silly pictures, and occasionally spin off into random banter. I have made friends via blog comments, and found interesting other blogs through the links left by commenters.

Now, all conversations about blog posts happen externally – mostly on social media – and blog comment sections themselves are either empty or filled with spam.

It’s easy to blame others for not leaving comments, but be honest: when did you leave a friendly blog comment yourself? Let’s be the change we want to see, and all that. Let’s leave our own friendly blog comments on others’ blogs, and try to get back a small fraction of the early ‘00s web community.

So this is why Eva has tried to rally us all around making comments again. Actual comments, not just sharing links, or talking on Facebook or Twitter and never clicking through to the post.

Join us? I’ll be your best friend!

Hellllooooooooo my loverlies!

Just wanted to write a few ‘housekeeping’ notes :)

On password protected posts: I’ve decided that I want to write about the therapy sessions I go to, and it’s easiest for me to type things out some days. Rather than exposing all the ins and outs for the world to see, but while keeping an ordered record, I’ve decided to make these password protected posts on my blog (with some completely private ones at times). That way, I can get it out, have a record, share with the people I want to, and perhaps go public in 5 years when life is smoother. Or not! :p

So, if you’d like the password, email me at phonakins@gmail.com. I may of course say ‘no’ and that’s probably either because I have NO idea who you are, or I work with you :p Also, don’t ask if you know you’ll feel uncomfortable reading it. And don’t stress if it takes me awhile. I get lazy with email sometimes.

Does that make sense? I looked into registered users being able access certain posts etc, but it all looked too hard. Plus, it’s also possible that I’ll change the password on you either deliberately or accidentally at some stage, haven’t decided what I’ll do then, but Gmail remembers for all eternity, so it should be easy for me to find who will want it :p

*******

On review posts: I’ve gotten a bit of a backlog of awesome things in the post lately, from jams to deodorant to sleeping potion. I’m way behind, so exect a bunch of posts, or one or two mega posts on this stuff at some stage.

*******

On blog ads: I thought I might try again at using Passionfruit ads as an ad management system.I’m offering 3 sizes of ads, with $10 discount using the code tenoff (which means you can get a free 125x125px ad for a month if you want). Check out this page if you’re keen. They will run in the right sidebar, under the Twitter box in monthly blocks.

********

I think that is all.

Here’s a picture that was tagged as “cute” in my Flickr stream….

I’m tired.

Life is tiring.

Yes, there is fun happening in my life, but to write about it later isn’t coming to me lately.

My food photos are going un-blogged.

My kitchen has been boring. Cooking for one sucks.

Blah blah blah.

I’ll come back when there’s more sparklies to be said.

Til then.

Be Prepared

For rambling posts

Or no posts

Or posts I put up and then delete/heavily edit

Or business as usual.

Who knows.

I’m trying to figure out (the eternal questions) how much to trust my own judgement.

And how to convince others to trust me (to an extent, at least to treat me like an adult)

I’m not resentful, I know why it is. I just want to not to have to prove my need to not be babysat.

Time, I guess.

And hard work.

That is all.

No, wait.

Thou shalt always Kill.

is it.

I come in peace

Sometimes I feel like an alien.

Not quite sure why I can’t interpret this world.

Why things work out the way they do.
