I seem to be constantly battling tiredness. I always feel tired – so tired. I feel like spending days laying about in bed snoozing whenever I want. Mind you, it’s probably my own fault as I view sleeping as a waste of time and tend to spend far too much time doing other things than sleeping.
I haven’t posted for a few days on this Blog. Reason? I have been busy deactivating social networks and deleting information I have stored on the Grou.ps platform. I have also been advising members in these communities to do the same.
I was once an advocate for Grou.ps, despite the many problems that existed there, sure that the service was improving and there was great potential in the platform. Now I feel that I have been betrayed by a platform I defended and pushed. Why do I feel this? The service has decided to go premium – though there is a free option also. However, the free option removes the privacy and moderation that owners of Grou.ps communities were assured of. You can just imagine what will happen with spam and privacy under these circumstances. Added to that, the platform is plagued with performance issues and seemingly full of bugs (at least that has been my experience and that of many others in the support forums).
I will not be supporting Grou.ps and longer and withdraw all of my endorsements of their product. As someone in the support forum said, they don’t mind paying for a service that works. Neither do I, but there is also the issue of the bad taste left in my mouth as a result of the way Grou.ps has ‘betrayed’ their loyal members and users.
If you’re into gardening and feel you need to re-design/design your garden, there is an online tool you can use. It’s the online trial version of the software you can download (pay for) from the site – for Windows. It could be just what you need to draw up some plans for the garden.
Ning, the site that allows you to create your own social network, is going to discontinue its ‘free’ service and only have paying clients. I used to use Ning but changed to the Grou.ps platform about a year ago. I believe I made the right decision when I did so and now I really feel I made the right decision back then.
If you would like to visit Ning, click on the link below. However, I have a feeling that many social networks will be fleeing Ning and looking for alternatives.
If you have a website there are times when you feel the need to set up a poll or a survey to gauge your visitors opinion/s on a certain subject/s. Polldaddy has a number of options for doing this, including a free one.
Check out the options available at:
I now have an Internet Radio Station at Blip.fm. Anyone can listen to the music by going to my Blip.fm site at:
While not a radio station in the sense of what you get on the radio, the radio station that I have begun have a play list that will grow over time, playing songs from the 1980s through to today. There may be an odd song from out of that time period, but that would be the general time frame.
What sort of music? Well, there won’t be anything too heavy there, so I suppose the music could be described as easy listening pop/rock.
I have only just started at Blip.fm, but there is some music there already and it will steadily grow. You’ll soon get a feel for the sort of music I like.
I don’t feel like doing a lot now – just resting and hoping that it goes away soon. I have taken two of these cheap paracetamol tablets, which in my past experience work just as effectively as the more expensive options, so why not use the cheaper?
Now to rest!!!
