Frank's Rules

One of my favorite fellow bloggers can be found at Ranting Monkey: The Last Stand Story. There you'll find rants covering a wide range of topics, timely political commentary, bluntly honest introspection, and some incredibly poignant personal stories. I was delighted when Frank recently returned to blogging, coincidentally on the very same day I did.
Today Frank wrote a post called Frank's Rules for Internet Blogging in response to my previous one . He's listed some well thought-out rules for hassle-free public blogging that are definitely worth a read. Stop by his place and take a look around, there's something there for everyone and Frank is always up for a good discussion or debate! :-)


  1. Aw, you didn't have to do that. But thanks.

    Heh, I've been pimped by Joise!

  2. Well holy crap Jos, I check and check, NO POST. Then, I don't check for a few days and I missed a gazillion!

    There are so many things to respond to...yes, at times, I find that I worry about my blog being "out there". Especially since I have started this new job and have not exactly been quiet about what I think of some of the others there. However, there is no reason for any of them to think I blog, I don't know any of them well, but yes, I know I could be discovered easily. And I guess I would have the let the chips fall...something to think about, maybe.

    I know how you feel at the loss of your old home, I may soon be looking in that direction myself. I am certainly in the same financial mess you were in a year or so ago, and I have to say it's very upsetting. But my dear husband has not been helpful in this mess, either and I am tired of trying to carry the entire load, so i gave up. Screw the creditors, and screw him. you think I am a little bitter? I try not to put my whole world out there, I am just not able to do that. But I know that you read between the lines, and with me, that is necessary.

    I am so happy to read that you are doing so well. I love your tone, your words, your stories...and I think it's most appropriate, as no one deserves it more than you. Hugs friend. Happy weekend.

  3. Yes, for sure I am a sporadic writer, Jamie. I definitely go by moods, one week playing games, one week writing, and sometimes just hiding out in my cave. :-) It does amaze me how closely the changes in your life have mirrored mine, and I will never forget all the encouragement you gave me and I fumbled thru it. I am still amazed at all that has transpired since then. My heart goes out to you as you deal with houses, debts, new jobs, the works. It sure can make us feel old fast! But I have also discovered that there is a great burden lifted off when it's all over. Starting with a fresh new life can be a real blessing with lots of good things yet to come! I still have a little bitterness left inside me too, probably always will. The story could have ended so much differently. But the reality is I have a MUCH better life now, so yes - screw it! I think the fact that I no longer require blood pressure medication says it all. :-) Just keep slogging thru one day at a time, enjoy the weekends off you've finally earned, and I'll keep prayin for you. It's going to be ok, we both know that! XOXO
