Blogging Insights — New Format # 29 — Spam

This week Tanya has asked our opinion of this quote;


Successful people don’t spam.” — Adrienne Smith

I would never spam someone on purpose.
When I first started blogging someone told me I should include the ads in my blog because I would make money every time someone clicked on the ads. This to me was almost like spamming. It took away from everything I wanted to convey in my writing.

When I started the fundraiser for the scholarship in my son’s name (to honor his legacy) I did sort of “spam” a bit but it was only a link to the fundraiser and to people on my list on LinkedIn. Even if someone clicked on it there was no gimmick nor did it do anything bad to your computer. I guess it depends on what you consider spam. I did send out individual messages to everyone and actually reached my max one day, but it was for a good cause. Is that still spam?

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #11

Amy is our hostess for the Sunday Ramble.

This week’s topic is “Would You Rather?“.

Here are the questions:

  1. Would you rather be the hero that saved the girl or the villain that took over the world? I would like to be the villain that takes over the world so that I can change whatever I want and get rid of some of the problems and drama.
  2. Would you rather have a skin that changes color based on your emotions or tattoos that appear all over your body whenever you are dishonest? I would rather have skin that changes color based on my mood. You know when you are out shopping and the guy outside the shop is panhandling and asks if you have some money and you say no. Well, if I gave to every person that panhandles for the sake of not having my liars’ tattoos come out I would be out there panhandling too because I’d have nothing left. That isn’t to say that I don’t give to the needy, I do, but there are limits.
  3. Would you rather have unlimited pizza   for life or unlimited tacos   for life? Unlimited pizza because you can have more toppings, no sauce, white sauce, different kinds of cheese, all that to get different tastes. I think with tacos you sort of always have a “taco” type taste.
  4. Would you rather own a key that can open any door for you or be able to visit any place you want? I would rather be able to visit any place I want. I don’t care if I have to knock on all the doors if I get to travel!
  5. Would you rather wake up in a dark forest or wake up on a deserted beach? Definitely on a deserted beach. In my mind there is less chance of a crazy serial killer being on a beach than in the forest.

Three Things Challenge #867

Di hosts this challenge

Your three words today are:

Once upon a time
in a world not far away
there was a great big man
who worked hard night and day
he had a slate car park
right where he parked his bike
he saw a horror movie
it’s one he didn’t like
he thought the scenes were boring
the characters were dumb
he knew he’d rate this movie
with a down stroke of his thumb.

A Very Random Challenge ~ Love Is In Da Blog 2022

Today the theme is A Love Song from February 7th, 1942

When looking on the internet for songs I found that I really didn’t enjoy many of them. One thing I did notice was the nostalgic reminder of Bugs Bunny cartoons…the background music sounded much like this song I chose.

I Don’t Want to Walk Without You

All our friends keep knocking at the door
They've asked me out a hundred times or more
But all I say is, "Leave me in the gloom"
And here I stay within my lonely room

I don't want to walk without you, Baby
Walk without my arm about you, Baby
I thought the day you left me behind
I'd take a stroll and get you right off my mind
But now I find that
I don't want to walk without the sunshine
Why'd you have to turn off all that sunshine?
Oh, Baby, please come back or you'll break my heart for me
'Cause I don't want to walk without you
No, sire
