This blog pushes me to the end.
And I will not pretend to contend
with all of the work
that makes me berserk.
Do you hear me? Do you comprehend?
So, I'd like to point out that I've been tracking my blogs progress with google analytics. The results are somewhat suprising! In LESS than three days, my blog went from 700 to over 800 unique visitors. Thanks to all that have ever read, commented or VISITED my blog.
Special Acknowledgements go to a select few bloggers that I feel have gone out of their way to, not only read the blog often, but become frequent commenters.
-Mary (of http://mary-marysmusings.blogspot.com/) For frequent comments and suggestions, and from what I read on the OEDILF forums, she has been reading ever since January! Thanks! By far, she is THE most frequent commentor and even gave me the main suggestion for my idea of posting limericks in the form of a story!
-Courtney (for sending the excellent site to me[gotta check em' out!] www.oedilf.com) Her blog is: http://fifer-traeger.blogspot.com/
-Lauren S. (for linking to me, continued comments/ suggestions) Check out her blog as well. http://bamagirlinthecity.blogspot.com
-Editor of OEDILF- Not only a fellow Norwalkian (I think thats correct), but has expressed intrest in the blog and encouraged me to join the team. (I have....btw)
-Robin: In my early stages of stunted limerickal development, this blogger came by with repeated encouraging comments. Thanks! http://creativewritintravel.blogspot.com/
-Margaret- Owner of http://thehatchlingpress.blogspot.com. The poems featured there are good and she has offered comments often. Thanks to you too!
-Prof. R.K Singh- THis man not only provided great comments but, suggested that I try to publish my works elsewhere. I haven't looked for a publisher yet (frankly, I don't know where to start) however, I have entered my writing into several contests. http://rksinghpoet.blogspot.com
Many thanks to the other readers of mine. These readers did something that made them stick out in my mind, wheter its a comment on most limericks or directing me to a place where a larger audience of people can view my poems. Thanks to All!
-It's come to my attention via a post on an online forum on www.oedilf.com that my readers think I am older than I actually am. I didn't mean to set off this kind of confusion. :\
-In my profile I said I was a freshman, and that IS true. But not in college. Im still a ninth grader and the fact that my readers think that I was a freshman in college bewilders me and in a weird way, gives me a warm fuzzy feeling all over. Thanks for the fuzzy feeling just wanted to clear it up.
p.s- Mary, although I don't respond to comments on my own blog, the post on the forum has made me think that it's only a common courtesy to respond to my comments. So.....as of today, all comments, I'll try to respond to with a legitimate comment on the commenters blog. :)
Limerick coming soon!!!
Over 700 visitors is a pretty good thing! Thanks so far for all the comments, suggestions. Keep em' coming! Thanks
But as soon as her maid left the room,
Her insane palpitations resumed.
Kate fell on the floor
And crawled towards the door.
A thick gloom in her room signaled doom.
Another detour, my apologies. It's just, I have exams coming up soon, I'm trying to get "in the zone."
My exams are just four days away.
When they’re over, my thoughts will allay.
But that doesn’t bring hope,
I have reason to mope
Because then I have more tests in May!
Ok, the story resumes. it may seem random, but like fine wine, this story takes years to age! Maybe not years, but wait until tommorow.
As the King’s niece drove to his estate,
Her sedan broke the wall and his gate.
But the King did not care,
Other girls don’t compare
To his niece and sole heir
Within days all will bow down to Kate!
Like the sun rises up in the sky,
Lovers laugh and they fight and they cry.
But on Valentine’s Day,
All harsh words drift away
Because Cupid is ever so nigh.
I hope you like the twist I've put on the story! For a second, I thought it was over...
So, It Didn’t Really Happen?
Well the king thought that this was enough.
This new story was violent and rough.
So he put the book down,
And went out into town
He forgot he was still in the buff!
I know, the queens already been killled, but there's more to this limerick than you think...just wait untill tommorow
When the man was all ready and clean,
He passed by the blood guilty queen.
The man spit in her face,
And put her in her place,
After throwing her in a ravine.
