Oh dear blog friends, I am afraid what I do in my down time at work has been noticed, and it was not taken happily by the powers that be. In other words, I read blogs when I'm bored, which is more than I would like, as my services are only needed toward the end of our burning projects. But I think the thing that really kicked me in the ass with all of it was the number of times I logged into blogger every day. I am sure a huge red flag went up, and honestly, I'm surprised it has taken this long. I knew if I kept going the way I was, eventually I would be found out and blocked.
Today was that day.
I got to work and nothing to do, as I am waiting on stuff from other people. So what did I do to occupy my time? I went to my happy place, my blogs. Imagine how unhappy I was when I was greeted with a message telling me all personal sites, including blogs, were now being blocked. I couldn't log in.
I wasn't mad. I'm still not mad. I AM sad though. I feel like my best friend has been fired. What am I going to do between projects now? I wonder if they will block CNN too? The funny thing is, they didn't block Fa.ceBo.ok, and I am sure that site gets way more hits company-wide than blogspot. Oh well. There isn't a damn thing I can do about it.
The thing that really makes me sad is there is no way I can be caught up on my blog reading anymore. DH hates my blogs. He calls them, "my boyfriend." So if I ever dare take any time away from him to blog, I hear about it for the next two months. I started writing my blog posts just before bed (hence all of the typos and grammatical errors) just to keep from stealing time from him. That still didn't make him happy though. If I had time to blog, I had time to snuggle with him. Forget the fact that my blogging time came out of my sleeping time.
I think what is going to happen is this blog will eventually have to merge with my primary blog. I am going to try not to do that, but if I can't keep up with two blogs, I will have to downsize. I need this blog. It is my secret hiding place. I guess we'll just have to see how things go. I only have a few more weeks until my surgery, and then I can blog my butt off while I convalesce for four weeks.
Be patient with me friends. I now have to come up with a new blogging strategy. My comments may slow down for a bit. The funny thing is, I can still access everyone's blogs, I just can't log in to comment on them. I might try to read at work and then comment from home at night. I'll figure it out, cause I'm smart like that.
All right, I'm off to catch up in the half hour before my laundry is done, at which point I will be going to bed... late.
