5 Reasons I Didn’t Read Your Blog Post

Hi guys, sorry I’ve not been about much this week. I just found Elena on the bloggers bash chat Twitter page and this great post on what we makes us read a blog post. Certainly much of what she says here I can relate to.
Great post btw Elena, I hope you don’t mind me reblogging.

Simon ☺️

Elena Peters | Midlife Blogger

Everyday, I probably read a hundred blog posts. I really enjoy it. There are some amazing writers out there sharing fabulous content. They inspire me and often spark an idea for my next blog post. I know, I am really bad at commenting and I’m really sorry to all of you for that but I’m much more a social media gal so most times, I will comment on your post within the social media platform I found you.

E. Denise Billups, Writer

WordPress DAily Prompt - Nature Pleading 2

You howled along the coast like an angry host

accosting a frightened town with a category four

more  critical than ever before catastrophic floods rose

appose street rows and continued to rise

devastating priceless lives

transposing rivers on dry ground

drenching opposed citizens fleeing treasured abodes

lives shattered and unrecoverable but memorized

as they fled for higher ground

 Your angry winds lashed Houston to a whipping post

wielding a woeful lesson in environmental education

taking lives presaging  global warming unheeded

til the next time your winds call

with cataclysmic pleading

for a smaller carbon footprint
