I'm Canadian in case non-Canadians might not have noticed .. although I don't know how since I mention it all the time .. but that isn't what THIS is about right now.
Please excuse what might be a ramble .. the girls got me up at 5 this morning so brain matter is totally scattered ...
Nancy from Soliloquy, well I just got to read her post this morning and it hit a HUGE CORD within"my" why I blog and why I read other blogs.
In case you haven't read her post .. here it is Nancy's post ..
She couldn't have said it better .. I love Blotanical and I so enjoy the benefits of being able to "see" and contact other gardeners and what they are up to.
BUT ....... this competition thing ? Hell NO !!
I don't want anything to do with it .. sorry Stuart .. I also love you to bits as well and you know that .. but I am really turned off with this whole thing of rating a post.
I also have another dislike and forgive me this please .. it is wonderful that other bloggers enjoy it .. and please continue your efforts and enjoyment of it all.
BUT .. I will be taking myself out of the competition of the awards at the end of the year as well.
I do not want anything to do with that either. This is just my opinion , with my likes and dislikes .. I still want to be a member here but if withdrawing from these activities means I get kicked out .. well .. so be it .. I have to stand up and STAND for what I am truly thinking.
The attachment to being Canadian with all of this ?
We can be TOO POLITE .. we usually agree with every body to be nice .. come on ! I know that is our reputation guys ;-)
But now I have said exactly how I feel and finally that guarded opinion is OFF my back .. I have been set free !! Halleluja
PS .. isn't there ENOUGH STRESS in the world ? shouldn't this be a gardener's refuge ?
