Here, if needed, is proof of why I should NEVER be left to my own devices.. I’ve tried to add as many bloggers as possible. If I follow you and you’re not here
thank your lucky stars it’s because I ran out of original sin!!
‘Twas The Blog before Christmas
And throughout WordPress
Not a Blogger was stirring
Not even “Our Mel,” the Caramel Goddess
The posts were all scheduled
Curated and checked
The reader was loading new posts to inspect
Good bloggers were snoring and farting in bed
While dreams of SEO (and other weird shittery I don’t understand) danced in their head
Then notifications went off with a clatter!
I woke, WTF – to see what was the matter
I opened up Windows and exited Flash
Pop ups kept appearing, WordPress wanted cash!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Bottomless Coffee with a barrel of beer!
Dressed as Santa and Rudolph and a saucy Elf wenchie
Our Lana was there with new books to peruse
While Laura had posts about stuff she’d re use
Sam and Anna brought wine from the back of the cellar.
Who’d come to the party with The Eclectic Contrarian
With a diva like entrance, came the gorgeous Rakkelle
Who was driving the party on the short bus to hell (aka upstate NY)
Ruth tried to post but was right out of luck
T’was then we discovered the Reader was fluffed! (I couldn’t think of anything to rhyme with ‘luck’…)
Well tickle my tinsel and twinkle my glitter
“Our seasonal postings are lost in the gritter” (I was going to say shitter but that’s rude)
Said WordPress community
Without a trace of impunity
With wailing and cursing and gnashing of teeth
We called out to Santa to send us relief
Down the chimney Ben Huberman came with a bound
He brushed himself off and then had a look round
A couple of sherries had him feeling like Yule
And thus he reinstated the Community Pool
All bloggers united, delighted and proud
That the boffins at WordPress had bowed to the crowd
The party restarted with music and cheer
And let’s not forget the barrel of beer!
The booze was a flowing and as long as it lasted
I had to declare that my flabber was gasted!
A lesson for life that will last us forever –
Good things will happen when we all stand together
And thus, it’s the end of this great pile of shite
Merry Bloggy Christmas to All
..and to all a good site!
