But you see, Lord, there are people out there who seem to think that they can change my blog content just like changing a channel or ordering from a menu at a restaurant.
I’m sitting here shaking my head at how some could say things like “I never win, I don’t know why I bother to leave a comment.” “There are too many Give-Aways on here”. “There are too many posts a day.” “Dang, I’ll never win with this many comments”
And: “What’s with all the kindle stuff, can you not post that?” “I already get your updates through facebook can you not send them to quiltvillechat too, I already have too much mail.”
And I sit here in amazement wondering who these people are and how they got the idea that they could determine what I want to talk about or where I post.
Yes, just this week I’ve talked about my hurting bunions, about toast crumbs on the butter dish, the things that show up in my mail, my massage appointment, what I had when I went out for dinner ----AND I posted links to free Kindle books. This is my blog --- I write what I want. And around everything, I quilt!
Dear Lord, please help me to breathe deep and let these things roll off my shoulders and far away from me and leave my soul at peace --- for I have lived today. And I have shared myself with others.
There is always the delete button. I know that works both ways, and I’ve been deleting, believe me, I’ve been deleting.
I make no apologies for what I post. The content is of my choosing. I am excited about and in love with my new Kindle Fire. I search for books I want to read. If I find one I think is good, I share it. For every person who doesn’t want the Kindle post, is another 1, 2 or 3 people that do.
But what matters most is that I feel good sharing it. That’s all. It’s easy to skip if you don’t want to read it. Is it hurting anyone that I share what I have downloaded for myself to read? And who assigned these random strangers as the blog content police?
And tomorrow there may be someone who isn’t happy with the free pattern I’m releasing for the blog. They won't like that I didn't write it for the technique they prefer to use. Or maybe that will be okay with everyone, because it is for FREE ---but you can’t please all of the people ANY of the time.
I just finished the Winston Ways quilting --- I’ll remove it from the machine tomorrow. Right now I think I’ll go tuck myself in with that new Kindle Fire and read until I fall asleep. And if I find another free book tomorrow --- I’ll post it. Because I can. And readers can read it, or not ----because they can.
Thank You. I feel better now!
