I posted this in comments the other day but perhaps I should have made it a regular blog because I think it's important. I've returned to this site in an attempt to give it a second chance, but there are some problems which I feel need to be addressed and quite frankly, I'm ready to leave again. I know there are several who will give me the old "don't let the door hit you in the ass" comment but I find it hard to believe I am the only one who has these feelings.
So here it is. May I respectfully make a suggestion? It is very discouraging to me that there are serial bloggers here who post several times a day. While I would never impose censoring fellow writers, it seems only fair that people who blog more than once a day should make their subsequent posts part of their original daily post so that we do not have to look at their photos in 3-4 different spots on any one given glance at the home blogging page, and more importantly, that they don't knock other writers who have blogged off the page within an hour. It seems very disrespectful to fellow writers, especially when I click on the links of serial bloggers and learn that a lot of the time, they are merely reposting links to news articles written by other people. We are all internet savvy here - we can find those articles ourselves.
In the spirit of community on Red Room, please limit your posts to one per day, and if you insist on blogging throughout the day, like I suggested, simply add it to your original post and then perhaps let people know you've posted again by commenting on THEIR blog posts. It is curious to me that when I click on most blogs, there are no comments at all, especially the serial bloggers. This just reinforces that there is a "look at me, me, me" mentality going on here.
Please do not take this the wrong way - I am really a very nice person (most of the time), but I see a frustrating situation and I want to help fix it. I shouldn't go to the home blogger page every single day and see the same photo 3-4 times taking up space reserved for everyone here. And don't tell me that people aren't blogging. They are. But their faces are only on the home page for the aforesaid hour before the same people knock them off again.
Thank you for indulging my little rant. But all kidding aside, I am interested to see if others here agree with me.
