This morning I had a bit of a twirl about WordPress. And found some wonderful photos on a photoblog and wowed over them to the photographer. A real treat to start the day.
I read about a cat that had died at the vet’s and I sent the owner my commiserations. I found some pages that I did not understand at all, some because they used languages I don’t speak, and some which seemed to be in a type of code.
Some pages were obviously for families and friends and I was surprised they were in the public domain. I found details of a hen party tonight quite near to where I live. Some pages I looked at were brightly coloured and dull in content. One was very dark and had some very dark fiction. Well, I hope it was fiction.
I may never find any of those pages again. It was like having brief collisions in time and screen. Random, chance meetings.
I found all of these by clicking on the latest posts at the bottom of the dashboard page. The ones that scroll by so fast that even if you check back after a few seconds have gone by they have disappeared into the ether.
It was amazing. This site is SO BIG. and MyT is SO SMALL.
Which made me think about what Araminta had said, that someone over on MyT had called this a side show. That’s like the flea thinking it’s bigger than the dog. No, not even that, because if WordPress were the dog, it wouldn’t even know the flea existed, much less feel any irritation from it. So, help me someone, please find me an analogy that gives some idea of the scale.
And now I might just go for a little wander again. Take in some of the sights.
