A blog waiting to happen...............................


When I think back on the pre-blogging days, I realise how much blogging was inevitable for so many of us, do you guys remember Justine's crazy pics on RMS haaaaaaaaaaa! They were so much fun, but of course they werent apprecieated by all! And who could forget schmecky's backyardigan posts! Girl you were a hoot with those. I too had my moments, I posted pics of my little girl in her Easter finery on RMS and of course recieved a comment like "this is Rate My Space not Rate My Child".
We would have these loooong discussions and the poor RMS authorities did not know what to do! I know many of us have outgrown RMS because of blogland, the love and appreciation shared and felt here cannot be compared. I will always take a peek now and then at RMS because of my love of home decor, however blogland is my first stop on my computer.

Blogging proves that you don't have to be a superstar diva to have others interested in what you have to say or what you do on a daily basis. Who would have thought that we excitedly read about a trip to the grocery store? or enjoy reading the ever popular 7 random things?

So this is just another short post to say hello to everyone, because I am off again for another week! I will be around for the rest of the evening and Monday morning so post early so I can read them before I leave!

Elizabeth said...

Well, you stole one of my future posts, and said it so eloquently!
Have a great week!

Justine said...

Yeah, those were the days! Staying up till all hours rating room after room. I almost never go to RMS anymore, because most of the people I really loved are here in Blogland. Well, there are some I still miss, but they're not even on RMS anymore.

Justine :o )

Bridget said...

Have a good week, Bridget

Donna said...

HAHA, I know what you mean about blogland..first thing I do too. It's really so cool and you're so right about being interested in what we all have to share.....

Isn't it all about knowing that wherever we are or whoever we are we are all the same Mums, wives, girlfriends, sisters, aunties and cousins with the same problems.

Life's invisible thread!

LOL! I saw that pic and immediately thought of my RMS post! LOL!

I had some great times there. I think some of my posts weren't understood. I just wanted someplace for us all to get together and chat yet I got some negative comments for doing it. I don't care. It was worth it. I had a lot of fun.

I remember your daughter's easter pic! She was adorable. And I remember the Rate My Child comment. Rude but funny. LOL!

Funny but I've been thinking of doing a blog about our times at RMS, one in particular. I will work on it.

Thanks for the memories!

One thing I love so much about blogging is that you really can develop friendships! Rate my space started friendships, but it was so open to those who were critical. I remember posting my garden and one naysayer leaving a comment that "What's with all the flowers? Rate My Space is for rooms." Hmmm, then why were there categories for gardens, yards and home exteriors? lol I didn't let her bother me.

Ok, rewriting this lol....I remember when the picture of the cute and adorable little girl with the Easter Sunday outfit was posted. I'm really confused as to why I thought it was someones grandchild. lol Must be the lack of memory once again. The RMS police always seemed to let the really nasty comments slide by though. That's something I'll always remember.

Donna said...

Donna
