My God? How time flies??? It was exactly one year ago today that I officially became a bloggler.
I believe that it was a huge step for this individual to spread his views around the world.
For you long time readers, you know my old ways of sending my updates. I would write a long winded one and send it along the information Highway.
Once it reached the person on my list, they would read it or delete it and that was that!!!! It was over!!!
But with Bloggling? It’s a total different ballgame?
Remember when you were in school 30 years ago?
If we wanted some pictures, we would run to the library and look for them.
These days, it’s totally different because of the information Highway.
I noticed that I received many visitors from images Google.
If you go in Google and go to image.
Write Bernard lord and you’ll see artist WCIE works shows up.
I might add that my picture with the Premier is on the second page.
< I don’t know if that’s a good thing? > …lol
You can also write - The Irvings!
Same action happens but the picture of the Irvings and Hitler appears.
There’s no escape for the Irvings on the information Highway.
They can own all the newspapers in New Brunswick but the bloggers do have the upper edge.
Yes, we sure came a long way since WCIE approached me to be a blogger.
Can you imagine? At first, I said – thanks but no thanks!
Very scary stuff.
You wish to see how far this blog came within one year?
Click on this blog?
This is the first blog I wrote. Just click in here and have a look!!!
Big difference eh? I used to put the comments in my blog until WCIE told me to leave that alone and the readers can leave their own comments on different issues.
We blogged away and tried different approached.
He showed me how to pasted pictures on the blog.
I practiced on this new way of bloggling.
WCIE with the help of other people surprise me with a brand new computer.
In the past, I would write highlights of what issue I’m going to write about and go at the Library to send my updates on the information Highway!
With a computer nearby? Everything would be easier.
In the spring, we took many pictures and this made the blog much more interesting.
I used all the pictures in different blogs and it was a good way to attract the readers attention.
Also in the spring, Tim Smith once again came to the Capital to protest the issue of VLT’S!
We quickly noticed that the hits on the blog went way up there especially from the media.
Speaking of the media? It was funny when the CBC workers were locked out. They approached me of linking their blog site to mine. How times have change?...lol
I might add that I did link their site. I didn’t mind.
One day, we had problems with the blog while in Saint John and couldn’t contact WCIE!!!
One guy came to the rescue from Ontario. We called the guy WCIE jr. It’s nice to have a guy who knows what’s going on in the computer world.
I never went into the template and I don’t plan to in the near future.
Everything was going perfect. Nothing could get better for this blog but I soon found out that I was dead wrong!
I received an email from an individual who wanted to join the team!
We nickname the individual Artist WCIE!!!!
I will admit that I truly believe he was the star during the Bi-election in Saint John.
He came out in full force with his talent.
Word spread like wildfire of his unique work. Many people including close friends asked me the name of this individual?
I would always refuse to tell anyone who Artist WCIE was?
The hits were close to 300 hits a day.
What I like about Artist work is that it saves me a lot of writing. If I don’t feel like writing a blog? I just pasted his work and the battle starts within the readers.
On many occassions many would comfront me on his views? I told the guy- Hey? That's artist views!!! Not mine!!!!
So? Everything is fine and nothing can be better.
But again, I was dead wrong!!
All change in Saint John during the bi-election.
One reader knew I was in the area and bought me a brand new camera, software to download the pictures to my computer and all the rest of the kit.
Now, I could go on the streets and have some fun with my little toy.
Nothing better than carrying a camera with you at all times. It’s better that a gun!! …lol….
Not even a guy like Rodney Weston from the Premier's office can enjoy a nice peaceful walk!!!
A photographer from the Irving’s newspaper would walked or drive around all day praying for that perfect pictures but it still has to get the ok from the Irving’s boss!
Well? In my case? I take the picture and send it along on the information Highway.
Last week, I have told that I can no longer take any pictures in the Legislature.
The Quebec security staff took the unusual step of denying my rights to take pictures. I will get to that story in later blogs.
A couple of weeks ago, another individual join the team and we call him - Computer WCIE!
He’s a very handy member to have on the team because if something goes wrong? He’s right there without hesitation.
I’m very grateful that he volunteered his time in this blog....lol….
Last week we hit the 50,000th visitors to this site and I believe this is a good thing.
Word is spreading like wildfire about this blog and I truly believe it’s the biggest blog in this province.
Many would love to have their own blog but they find it discouraging because of the low passage of visitors.
Well? Lets be honest here? If I didn’t have my huge email list?
There would be no one in here.
I would love like to thank CFBC Talk of the Town who allow me to promote my blogsite on the air.
Many regulars to this site first came because they heard it on the radio. Especially many poor people.
Hey? Anyway to spread the word?
I soon found out that this is no longer my blog.
It sort of became the people’s blog.
Every once in a while some individuals would come here and condemn me.
I learned that I have lots of backers on the information Highway. Just like soldiers they will step forward without a second taught.
If you want the MLA’S to addressed a certain issue?
This is the place to do it because they do visit the site.
Lately, the Irvings have also been seen surfing in this blog.
Every citizen from different walks of life are in here and that’s a good thing.
There’s a reason for everything!!! I’m a strong believer of this because what’s the odds of me being in the Capital facing those bureaucrats with the MLA’S every single day and my best friend is the Priest?
Makes a person wonder?
If I was working? This blog will come to a sudden halt because I wouldn’t have the time to spend on this website.
I had a job but the Government labeled me as a security risk.
Lets say that I was working? Would I be truly happy? I would have money but then again that’s what is strange while we’re on that planet.
I mean? It don’t matter if your filty rich or filty poor? We all have to make an appearance in front of the same Boss!
If there’s no life after death? Well, I guess you could call this a big waste of time during my lifetime.
Yes, too bad I don’t get paid for this hobby but what can you do?
I truly enjoy this little hobby and will continue doing so till the end of times.
I understand there’s many out there who hates this site. I received a few emails with a deadly virus! All part of bloggling I guess?
In closing, thank you to WCIE, WCIE JR, Artist WCIE, Computer WCIE and Tim Smith.
As any other group of people? We had our battle within but we calmed down and continue the battle.
What’s ahead for this blog?
Who know? Time will tell? I know one certain fact!!!
There’s never a dull moment in the Capital! There’s always something to blog about!!!!
I bet there's also a lot of people who would love to throw my computer in the garbage!!!
