‘Follow’ and ‘like’ seem as though they might be…

…pointless, if one doesn’t actually like or follow a blog.  All this is about creating a network in hopes that some real follows and likes will occur.  I see that that is the way it works.  I see the need to do it.  On the other hand, I feel compelled to at least have a look before I follow.  And I can’t bring myself to click ‘like’ unless I actually see something I like; and, in that event, I usually will comment also.  I suppose one might call that doing it ‘the old fashioned way.’

Really, it is a compromise, because I am generally going to follow someone’s blog, unless its content strikes me as unusually offensive, especially wrongheaded, or, especially ugly or repulsive.   That doesn’t happen often, however when i get a follow from someone and their site immediately hits me with massive amounts of ugly right off the platform, then I can’t see my way clear to clicking ‘like,’ or ‘follow;’ and, of course, there is no ‘wipe this hideousness from the face of the Earth,’ button.

While investigating the various…

…post interfaces, I found myself flipping the last (Xerex) sequence and starting another sonnet.  I felt lazy today, and for some reason, that often causes me to appear industrious–even to myself.

There was a Java update…

…I wonder if quickpost will deign to work again.

No, it would appear not yet.  I had to use “popout” for this to post….

The post interface that comes from the drop down menu of the “W” in the upper left hand corner of the screen, does not appear to be working either.

So far, the main posting interface is the only one that works consistently.

I think it would make sense…

…if I were to make the Xerex original link up with the sections in the sonnet sequence whereunto they correspond.  I think that will be for tomorrow, when I reverse the order of the sequence.  Tonight is for sleeping, I think.

This next of today is a sonnet based, once again, upon an older work, not in sonnet form.   Though not freeverse, it felt itself sanguine to adaptation.
