Today – outwards by 3

That’s … ONE. Business Insider tells all you Facebook fanatics something you don’t want to know – but you’d be awfully silly not to read about it!

Just consider the source, for starters …

That’s … TWO. For anyone who, like me, discovered æons ago C.S. Lewis’ wonderful stories about the Pevensie children and fell in love with them all, here is not only an image to fill the eye and the heart, but a really surprising fact!

That’s … THREE. This is for my Australian readers (for I can’t believe any Aussie reads this blog and doesn’t share my political views … well – at least some of ‘em).

A quick checklist of our illustrious guvmint’s record of achievement since taking office – you need to scroll down for this one.


I’ve linked to these because only one is a blog and could’ve been reblogged. It’s a morning in which I find my blood pressure rising with no.s 1 and 3, so add no. 2 for cooling-down purposes. And because it’s so beautiful I can scarcely believe it.

Opting out of Facebook

I’ve given up.

As I’m unable to force my business/author page to turn itself into the hero, and every activity I undertake relating to FB continues to append itself to my personal page, I’ve cancelled out. I’ve tried everything suggested to me as a solution by the people to whom I turned for assistance, including FB’s own Help!: in a couple of instances, the first time I did [whatever] it worked, and I was thrilled; but thereafter everything reverted to the author page’s being something I was obliged to work on manually, because nothing done outside could be posted to it.

I honestly do not see what benefit I can gain on Facebook, anyway, in terms of pushing ATLMD (as regular readers know, that is the reason behind my blogging). I mean, honestly. If I were an author of multiple books, perhaps; because then there would be lots of headings to set up and so forth. But I ain’t, and shan’t be for a while.

FBAnd – Facebook lovers please stop reading NOW! – I really don’t like it.

It doesn’t have enough variability of design – doesn’t allow one’s personality to show.

What it does have are many infuriating aspects – one of which is some bloody list of total unknowns it keeps pushing me to link up with. In fact, the pushing of various things within it has driven me bonkers since last Tuesday, when I started.

And with regard to that unwanted personal page, the screen-grab shown is totally relevant: that’s exactly what I wanted to keep screaming!

I couldn’t get FB set up in terms of linking to it from here. And there’d be absolutely zero point in having the bloody thing going if the blog weren’t showing it, eh?

It is a far, far better thing I do, here on this blog (she added, somewhat prosaically) … I LIKE my blog. I like the people who have joined me on it. I like the blogs I follow. It’s a process that keeps a solitary old broad happy. The same would never have been able to be said about FB.

I have spoken.   [grin]
