SOMEONE THINKS I DON'T CARE

I had to respond to an "Anonymous" comment suggesting that I didn't care enough to visit my own blog once I post. For those of you who have been following this meme for a while you are aware of how busy I've been lately. I miss not being able to spend as much time visiting everyone as I used to.

I set my weekly posts to a schedule posting time. They post when I'm at work and I am sometimes far too busy just to log on to check. I don't catch my errors at time until I get home which is late because of the distance between where I work and live.

If I didn't care I would let time take over completely and not post these weekly memes at all. But I do care and will continue to post as long as there are those of you who are still enjoying this meme. I love that you continue to post though I'm not able to. My weekly smile is knowing that you all are still enjoying getting a little cyber wet each week with or without me.

Much love and thanks to all of you who participate.

just read this coz i'm following this meme and i love it! I understand your sentiments. I read that comment today and just ignore it. If he/she is brave enough to tell you that, why does he/she left an anonymous comment. It is only showing his cowardice and he don't have any idea about this meme. I am honestly telling you Ms. Bruce that I am truly enjoying this meme...thanks for hosting it! keep up the good job! let's get cyber wet every week! take care and God bless!

or maybe we need to understand that Anonymous person because he might be carrying a burden right now...still this meme is one of my favorite!

No worries here, I remember when you got your new job and how busy you were afterwards. You show how much you care by keeping this meme going through pre-dating posts and I am very grateful. It is one of my favorite meme's and I participate most weeks unless life gets in the way. I also enjoy visiting other posts when time allows. I can't keep up with everyone because there are so many of us out there in the blogging world but I try and when I can't most people understand because they are in the same boat. So, thank you for creating this meme. I will keep participating whether you have the time to pop in or not and wish you well while sending my thanks for creating Watery Wednesday in the first place.

I missed this comment that you are speaking of but I can understand you being too busy to comment on everyone's post. I appreciate that you are keeping it going because it is a fun meme. Thank You!

We are only human and because of that cannot perform all the tasks we wish to. I think you are doing an outstanding job. I know, myself, that I get behind in reading and commenting and want to visit everyone. If you work, have a family, and have a life you are limited by time constraints. Your heart is there when you cannot be. Thanks for being there in spirit when you cannot be there in the flesh!

Forget about it. All of us have offline lives that take precedence. I too appreciate that you are hosting this meme.

Hugs.

It's understandable, everyone gets busy with work or house chores and anything else. But like you, we find time to somehow update our blogs and I know it is very hard to keep up with it. I still enjoy participating in this meme, it's the pleasure of sharing that I enjoy and not the counting the comments I receive.

I agree with all those above. An anonymous comment should be tossed out, as far as I am concerned. And, I thank you for sponsoring this meme. I look forward to it every week and use it as an excuse to get out and hunt for some nice looking water to photograph. Thank you again! Just don't work too hard...save some time for play!

Speak up - show your face - it is cowardly to complain and not tell your name - cowardly indeed. Besides - it is each person's business as to what and when they post and/or make corrections.

Thanks for the fun meme - I love all the blogs to visit.

That comment was very uncalled for. We give you a lot of credit for continuing this meme. One of the best meme that I religiously participate.

Being exceptionally busy for some account can be a sorry setback indeed. I for one do the same. Not for being ungrateful but things in the real world can be overwhelming inasmuch as being in the meme world. I am aware that returning due courtesy is very important in this network activity.

Just don't take the comment to heart. At least, you have responded to that comment and clear your part and that's all that matters.

I created a new meme blog hoping I'll be able to correct the commenting problem I had in my previous blog:Australia:Quadrat in Focus. Alas, as it appears, it did not make the difference at all as the problem still persists.

Sometimes we have to post ahead of time. For us photo driven bloggers, it isn't just sit and think of something smart to say and publish. We have hours in the field, hours of editing and then there are the activities of making a living and having a family life. Watery Wednesday is my weekly "must post" meme.

We love our followers and sometimes we make it looks so effortless that they may not realize how dedicated hard working we are.

Suzi Smith said...

What?!.... you mean you have other things to do apart from sit & watch your blog!!!! how dare you? LOL, i've only recently found you & appreciate it very much, thank you x

Thank you all for your comments. They were so deeply appreciated. As long as you all keep posting I will gladly keep this meme going. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :-)

Jane said...

I am so sick of "anonymous trolls", the only ones that have no life are the ones that complain about people having a life. Of course you care as as you said, why would you keep the meme if you didn't, delete the little horror and take no notice of them 2sweet.

I'm so grateful to you for taking the time to post WW meme every week. (I accidentally deleted mine today and now can't visit those who commented, LOL!) I, too, love Watery Wednesday and always look forward to your photo and Mr. Linky. Thanks again for your efforts to keep this going and don't let that one comment make you feel bad. We love you 2sweetnsawy!
