I’ve Been Cited In Two Professional Publications And Other Stuff About Blogging

Thanks so much to all followers new and old.  There has been such an increase in subscribed followers lately that I’ve not had time to keep up visiting their blogs.  Please forgive me.  Rather than clicking like and moving on,  I prefer reading posts and if there is something I would like to say, to leave comments.  Time does not always allow me to leave comments.  I’m hoping to set aside at least one hour on the weekends to visit and catch-up on the blogs I follow.  Here’s hoping that it works.

It’s a humbling experience to discover that things you have written have been cited in professional publications.

In October 2016, blogger Supabutterfly wrote a post honoring me.  I was already humbled and honored by his handle.  For those who might not know, in July 2014, I made a decision to use the option that a Word Press account would be needed to submit comments to this blog.    It was because since mid-2013, I was bombarded with harassing comments submitted through proxy IP addresses.  For over 6 months, I blacklisted the IP addresses, but one proxy IP address service might have hundreds of proxy IP addresses.  It was a never-ending battle.

There were people who had participated on this blog since it opened in August 2012.  They opened Word Press accounts and many of them incorporated the word “butterfly” into their new handles.   One did not consider himself a butterfly so chose a handle that includes “moth.”  What they did was honorable and a blessing to me. None of them had to go through opening a Word Press account to continue posting comments here, but they did and I am forever grateful. Read the rest of this entry
