First off, I never named anyone, only stated my opinion on 'someone'

you put out a great howl, i felt bad about it and pulled it.

now you're complaining about that?

Your nails must mean a lot to you, if you don't mind me pointing that out.
Besides that you wrote me about some kind of danged 'poll' after knowing I took it off (for your benefit) I look at your 'blogroll' and see that you still have
"get your own blog"
on there....when the blog doesn't exist.

That's called 'martyr'

And as for losing my temper, I'm immune to you now.
I'm glad I came back to see this.

If you need the request, then please take me off your sidebar altogether
You'll be happier
I'll be happier
everyone can be happier

Boney, why are you trying to make me feel guilty for something you have done? you removed the post, it should never have been written in the first was spiteful and quite a few people knew the 'someone' was me. You had already said you had 'offed' your blogs because the 'dame from Australia' had pissed you off in a comment over at Pete's. So was I supposed to listen to all those things you were saying about me and say nothing in my own defense?

I don't know what transpired here. Frankly, I don't care to know. It IS bad form to post/comment negativity about another blogger. So whomever did it first: shame on you.

Conversely, only a fool would believe - at face value - anything they read here in blogland, in the first place. I NEVER let another being (human, canine, etc.) exclusively determine what I should think.

This should be a place for fun, and/or expressing one's thoughts/ideas/musings/creativity.

Now I am willing to admit that there have been times when I've been "irritated" by another blogger. But I did NOT blast them. I simply and quietly withdrew in certain ways, to maintain some distance.

Blogging DOES easily present the illusion that we truly know each other without ever having met and interacted in person, over a long period of time. This is simply not true, and we need to always be cognizant of it. I refuse to be offended or hurt by someone whom I truly do NOT know (or in this case, "see" them only through their blogging).

Now what I am about to write is just my opinion. Take it or leave it. I suggest that you BOTH delete your links to each other, and also delete posts referencing this conflict. Let this pass quietly - no jabs, no statements in defense. Continue your blogs in your particular styles and appreciate those who do visit them.

Sorry. I felt that I had to say something.

you're not to worry.

dianne said...

Thanks K9 lovely to see you, yes it has been fun but I'm thinking of pulling the plug, not out of temper mind you as I dont have one; out of disillusionment thats all.
Where have you been, painting that beautiful calendar I guess, I love the September page, 'the 12 labors of Hercules', you are such a great artist. :) xoxox

dianne said...

Puggles my dear, thank you, I thought I had already replied to your comment but I'm a little upset this evening and confused. You are quite right in what you have said, this is supposed to be a place to express my thoughts,my creativity a happy place where I can welcome people into my little world and we can all have fun reading the comments.I have taken note of your advice and I will sleep on it I wont do anything rash. :) <3

K9 said...

no no. dont let one bad episode wreck it for you. a cursory view of the blogs you visit shows far more reasons to stay -clearly you are enjoyed and very well liked by your fellow bloggers!

thank you for your kind remarks about my work. i have been building my website which is a monumental task for me. i did do a new painting it is at chickory. (you can find a link on my sidebar if you are so inclined)

i hope you dont pull the plug grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl.

dianne said...

K9 thanks dear,no I wont do anything silly this little space is a part of me and I still have so much to contribute. If I did I would still visit you all as you are all part of my world now and I love having a look at what you have all posted. I will pop over to chickory and have a look at your new painting. :)
