The Books Are Somewhere Else Now

I don’t know how well this will work, anyway for better or for worse there’s the other site I was writing about

The Precipice Dominions… (A Fantasy Trilogy)

It would be nice to say using the Brave New World of WP setting up a new site was fun. However for the sake of dignity let me just say ‘It Was Interesting’ and being a retired UK Civil Servant would suggest ‘I could have produced a better basic instruction manual, shorn of assumptions about the prospective user’s knowledge’.

Anyway. It’s launched (Without Widgets– I opted for the Blogs I am Following, and was presented with a list of ‘Who?…Well only once?…Hey where’s…..’ It looked quite rude and offish)


Oh Gladsome Day!!

(Should be played throughout the post for the full esoteric and joyous effect)

Oh joy of joys!

Let there be singing and dancing in the streetsdancingmania

and the villages, for thanks be to Chrome

I can now communicate on WordPress without fear of being a Non-Person. For Google did lifteth the scales from my eyes and did show unto me that MSN was a false prophet whose browser was filled with much evil miasma and thought crimes

Ahhhh Goodly Blessed Programmer of Google Chrome


How wonderful of you to care for me so.

For all I needed to so was sign a long and obtuse document put together by the caring lawyers


of Great Google and download a whole slew of necessary stuff


I am so very, very happy


Join with me ye Word Press

WP!!! What the ffffffffffffoolsihness are you up to now??????

Word Press Why Do You Haunt Me So?

Pause for Thought

Word Press. A minute of your time dear ladies and gentlemen.


Why do you send me a link to the post I have posted up? Why do you think I need to know what I have posted? What would you do if I were to ‘like’ this?   Laughing and pointing




I have been very patient about this matter, and will continue to be bemused because this quirkiness provides me with much material for blogs posts, that are quick and easy to produce and thus give the impression how buzzy (sic) I can be.


I consider myself fourtunate I have opted for a free plan and do not rely on my welfare and income hereabouts……

But have others ources.

But soft

On the whole I find the whole business most singularwilliamterriss7-2

Ah well, I have said my piece, I must be on my way

Whimsical one

PS: Addressed once before, How Existentialist Can You Get?

But poking WP’s foibles is such fun!

How Existentialist Can You Get?

According to the WP information I started this blog on the 26th July, which is very reassuring that WP has acknowledge my existence since on the first attempt (1 hour before) it lulled me into a sense of false security by setting up a site and then denying such a site existed, even if you could type in the address on a Google search.

BUT that is cyber water under the programmed bridge let us not dwell on it…..I’ll just mention it through snarky teeth, from time to time. ….. WP…….  big-raspberry


However it is nice to be back amongst the WP friends again and for them to ‘follow’ me.  11 of them, so far…..

But soft But soft…..The statistics (all hail the Grate(sic) God Stats). Do they not advise me there are 12 followers?….Ah, check I must, who is this shy and timorous creature who follows and yetR_Staines_Malvolio_Shakespeare_Twelfth_Night does not contact me?


Puzzled expression

It’s me!   WIN_20190804_08_40_41_Pro

I’m following me?

Wow, that is so…..

Isn’t it just?

But how can it be that a computer system decides I have to follow me? I mean, I have a fairly good recollection of what I have written (well in the last few days). Where in the programme is the rational that a blogger must follow themselves.

This of course explains why my posts keep turning up on my ‘Reader’ and whereas it is very tempting to ‘like’ them…Well that would be cheating, and I don’t want to end up doing that, I mean where would it end?

Yes, I know Number 10

However back to the subject matter.

How can it be that a computer system let’s you do this, or more to the point encourages you to do it? Because I do not recall making anything like a conscious choice. The evil little programme just picks up on a wandering spasm in the brain, or a few fat fingers and there you are.

Following yourself?Laughing and pointing

I would delete ‘me’ as a follower, but if I were to do that, would that mean a denial of one’s self as a being? Would one be in danger of eradicating oneself from this plain of WP existence? Or, as it were make a statement that one should not be here, for fearing that following oneself is something narcissistic? Brexiteer

There again does this leave me open to the charge of being so fragile that I fear the act of even deleting something so tenuous and ephemeral as a ‘following’ status on WP? Am I thus without the fibre which encourages the growth of character and independence? Whimsey 5…..

Ah me……

Melodramatic man

T’would that the answer be simple, thus….therefore

There again, perhaps it is best to leave the whole thing alone in case WP has another hissy Angry cat 2 fit and wipes out my whole blog !

And we read that AI might take over the WorldAre you serious





So just keep a look out, and if anyone does notice me replying to myself…..I have a FaceBook page and my wife and children can be contacted through there.
