FRIENDSHIP


Our Tehachapi friends, Carol and Robert.

I have made a decision to resign from Open Diary.  Why?  The Diarymaster tells me that I was wrong…all materials posted on OD are mine and mine alone.  That’s not how it read to many of us who post there.  But I have found that life is simpler without OD and Wordpress…that last is another OD replacement. 

In the past, every time OD broke down, I would feel compelled to continue writing somewhere, anywhere.  So I found Blogger.  Others fled to Wordpress.  I started a blog there too.  This last time OD died most of my friends moved to Prosebox.  It offered a simple format that went well with my blog format built on HTML.  I could use it with only one change.  I reduced things to Blogger and Prosebox.

One dear friend that I met in writing class many years ago finally started a fresh blog in Wordpress.  She doesn’t write every day, but usually what she notes interests me.  She quilts, she and her Husband Robert love trains, and they volunteer.  Today we got together for breakfast and talked cars.  Best of all, the four of us had a grand visit all speaking the same language of friendship.

  5. I wouldn't want to have to start over with a new blog program. I don't feel as though I know WordPress as well as I should by now, but it works.
