Steele and Thank You

February 24, 2007

Steele and Thank You                                                                             2/20/07I don’t think the network is doing so well.  I hit the send button, and I felt awful.  It took a couple more days to send again, but I did, one half at one time, a total of well over a hundred, maybe two, hundred email addresses.  The response I got was on the phone from my brother.  What’s this blood thicker than water thing?  He knew who Bobby Steele was.  What are the odds, that my bro who spent one year at this possibly God forsaken high school would help out.  These people apparently haven’t seen It’s a Wonderful Life.          Secondly, I think I’m going to turn to these lady bloggers for community.  I love them.  I’ve met most of them.  My #1, go to blogger I probably won’t ever meet.  Another one was/is my favorite writer.  I don’t want to kiss up to her because she’s so powerful.  I used to search the paper to see if she had a column in today.  Most likely a book review.  And her husband’s pretty cool too.         
Erin is great.  I don’t want her phallic people over here though, so I’ve been sparse on commenting on her blog.  But that is what I must do, I guess.  And write more here (where I can edit,) because invariable if I go on at length I’m going to say something stupid, or something that will look unfashionable five years hence.  One lady I love to death in person, but I haven’t bought any of her books.
          Another wrote A New suit for Charon, and I am overwhelmed.  I think she’s warming to this medium, and I’ve been remiss in obtaining her free publication.          That’s five.  They are all women, and I’m not.  What develops?          There are more of these personal bloggers.  They make my world go round.  I’m not sold on this … this thing where the news people cannot upload as fast as my cheapest cable modem.          At one time I was going to cold call to promote our web design.  I’m not there yet.  And do we do pay pal or not?  Hmm.  You can ask me questions.          Also I’m in pain, and I think it’s the bad guys again.  This and an inspection, like how much stress can a person field?  More soon — I’m to go comment on the realities.          Oh, and I almost forgot.  My post did not show up on that network for good thing, which is really a Technorati venture and I’m not signed up with them either.          My thread on message board for social networking at AOL has got no response either.          On my space I was sleepy and accidentally used my first name instead of the network’s and I tried to back track but they wouldn’t let me.  I did not return their email confirmation, but maybe I can be myself on my space, if I ever care.          P.S. 2/21/07  Allow me to end a bit more upbeat.  These things, including the Religious Order thing may yet work out well.

            This is why I’ve maintained a relationship with AOL.  They can help make this thing go.  There were only 39 other blog posts about networking for good.  One place about Social Networking had zero threads.  So that’s part of my goal for tonight.  Make friends with AOL.

            I’m a philanthropist.  I just don’t have the endowment of Gates and Buffet, although I may contact these guys, who have not paid to be in the network.  This is not set in stone.  There is another guy who may come through – maybe I’ll post the letter here.

            Also I want to open up My Space so I can talk to some people already there.  And I’ll turn you all on to some books, movies, and music in my Blogger profile.

            The news from my high school is so far non-existent.  My message has been out there three days plus and there is resounding quiet.  Not even a dud thump.  There’s time, but I’m going to comment soon on the situation.  The first time I hit the send button I felt awful.  There’s got to be well over 100 adresses – too many to send at once, I was informed.  It took days to work up the nerve to send in smaller batches, and there’s no reply.  I think.  For now I’m going to include Confederacy of Dunces in my books.

            And I’m going to include Blue Velvet in my movies, if only for one of Dennis Hopper’s lines.  Things have been hot for me in blogger land.  This line did not impress a lady writer in my email to her.  She must have complained because this other “demented” blogger is lady ranting about it.  Finally, I’ve thanked a real lady writer for giving my writing some exposure on her blog.  The thought that she was trying to expose me as not good, but a really crummy writer gave way when I decided to defend the controversial stuff as having some merit.  I think she knows this too, and maybe I should have stayed quiet.  Oh well, and I’m still going to defend the controversial priest thing, and the twelve step thing, where they should not have invited controversy to the name.

            Finally there is another lady blogger to whom I wrote, “Maybe we’ll be blogger buddies.”  Maybe she remembers me from a chat or two, but she doesn’t really know me though I think she’s a really important writer from following her for a year.  She likes her space and her privacy, so I don’t want her to feel weird about me being a fan.  Some of this comes with the blogger territory, I think.


            Here is the code to get to my spot nationwide: 

<a href=”; mce_href=”; rel=”tag”>Network For Good</a>


            Special for WordPress:  I don’t know how the Seven came out so big but I’m going to leave it, at least for a while because this is supposed to be big.  Also I’m going to go for it with this AOL tag Network For Good, send them this blog too – let them figure it out.  They did not list me yet and I’ve published on Blogger.  I hope to God I don’t get into trouble with AOL, maybe I’ll have to reinvent.
