About Me

My photo
I love a lot. I wait a lot. I try to find a lot to laugh at. I don't usually have trouble with that. I pray a lot. I'm not always sure who or what I pray to, but I firmly believe that prayer makes a difference. I try not to panic very often. I try to learn something new every day. I spend a lot of time poking my nose into other peoples' bidness via their blogs. I clean up an awful lot of feathers. You can dress me up, but you can't really take me out. I travel a lot when I can find bird sitters and we take them with us when I can't. I drink, prolly to excess, but I rarely get sick because my body is a hostile environment to germs (or maybe no SELF RESPECTING germ would LIVE in my body?) I collect: gnomes, passport stamps, MONEY-preferably US dollars or Euros, red headed womyn and chicks named Stephanie. My Momma taught me many many years ago that girls don't fart, they foosie. She taught me lots of other chit too. Thanks for stopping by-leave me a comment and let me know you were here, feel free to link to me, or email me at jacquelynn.fortner@gmail.com

Short and Sweet

For the record:  Don't insult my intelligence.  It really pisses me off when I'm reading one of my favorite blogs, which has, literally HUNDREDS of followers-it shows them right there on the farking page-and the author makes some facetious remark about their (singular) reader.  It may be a little haha funny if you are struggling for readers, but when you are getting thousands of hits a day on your page(s) it just comes off as false modesty.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog reading.

Oh.  A wee bit o' lagniappe:

Damn right... I have nine followers, and one of them is my wife. I'm someone who is suffering from a lack of readership. Someone with a few hundred people reading their blog every day needs to STFU about their readership.

Improbable Joe-I read you faithfully every day!

Dar-Again, I read every post you make. I can't help it if it won't always let me comment. May I also point out that I spent the night at your house since the Unit left, I've been sick AND studying for my trip, you've been doing a wedding, and the road runs BOTH ways. Just sayin'.

I'm on your side with that one, Derf. I get annoyed when it's all, "Does anyone read my blog? Oh, way, lurkers come out!"

Because really? If you're blogging to make friends, that's fine, but who wants to be friends with people that are needy and annoying and constantly looking for verification?

Ugh, I know. When I started (and for about 6 months thereafter) there were PLENTY of days when absolutely no one, like ZERO people, would read. Then one day, I got 17 hits. And I was elated. Because to me, that was the lottery. Seventeen, real live people wanted to hear what I had to say (no, it never occurred to me until much later that it could have been one person who hit 17 different posts. Cause I'm swift like that).

Awesome. Now I just need to get one of those inked on my g-spot and I'll be good.
