“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”

EGG in White Bowls Study, No1, Edit B

A photographic study of raw eggs in white bowls. Just something I wanted to do for awhile and finally took some time to do it.

“Bloggers that really count?”

It is the ‘natural course’ that some blogs are going to be more popular than others. Therefore, some blogs get a lot of visits, hits, and comments. And, some bloggers, therefore, are more popular than the rest of us for whom what…don’t really count?

I’m not sure what the purpose was for’s announcement that continues to take up space in my dashboard: “Congratulations to our ‘bloggers who really count’.”

In all contests (is blogging a contest?) there are winners (or a single winner), and the rest of us are…losers?

I wonder where wordpress would be if only the “bloggers who really count” were the only ones blogging, and the rest of us left the blogosphere?

I am a bit offended by the statement, “Bloggers Who Really Count”.

Perhaps these MOST POPULAR bloggers do supply the world with great information. But, so do the rest of us.

This last note is for ‘The Rest of Us who DON’T Count‘:  Maybe I’m in the minority, but I think we DO COUNT!   While many of us may not have public acclaim or notoriety of any sort, without us, would not be where it is today.

So, as I like to say when I’m a bit pissed off: “Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!”

Future Goal:  To ‘really, really, really, super duper ka-plooper COUNT as a blogger!

The End.
