Check my blog out sometime and give me opinions..
Is that gif real? Did that person survive? Just curious in case a family member accidentally saw it in a search engine.
Unlikely to be real in my opinion.
Welcome to FR.
Actually, your blog is not bad, not bad at all. But FR is not a place to promote your blog, let alone coming out with one. You will be labeled a blog pimp, be ridiculed as such, and lots of IBFZ posts will pop up. Humble gunner is not so humble, by the way, and for good reasons most of the times.
Promote your blog elsewhere, but I hope you do stay and join in the conversation.
FR must be showing one’s local time now.
Nice blog. Its at least a good experience to put something like that together. I read your first article and it seems good enough for a vanity post at Free Republic where you can discuss a topic with some of the greatest minds in blogging. Just classify all of your FR posts as general chit chat, or the moderator will rip you a new one. Its hard to get yourself heard on the internets and at sights like TheBlaze that just have hundreds of mindless rants. That said, check out my site. www.poserindex.com.
It’s real. Person survived. Saw that on one of those lucky to be alive shows or some such thing.
Better than the glitch when it showed pacific time and the clock was off 20 minutes! lol
A lot of replies..and trolls. Lol.
I’ve got this semi solid substance under my toe nail. Check it out and tell me what you think!
That’s it? You’ll never survive being a blog plimp.
My standard IB4TZ post
Sung to the tune of Oh! Susanna, dont you cry for me.
.... Oh, no Bama, please dont lie to me... for Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
I come from Minnesota with my laptop on my knee; | Im goin to Free Republic my true love for to see. | It rained all night the day you left, | the weather it was dry; | The sun so hot you froze to death, | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | I come from Minnesota, with my laptop on my knee.
I had a dream the other night, | When everything was still; | I thought I saw Obama dear, | A-coming for The Hill. | The smearing lie was in Duluth, | The croc tear in his eye, | Said I, Im coming for the truth | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic, | with my laptop on my knee.
I fight in my pajamas, | Its plain for all to see. | I aim to be the next Buckhead; | The media all hate me. | I fell in love with Sarah | When my sister bit a moose. | The Guvnors family ate it up | And then they set it loose. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic, | with my laptop on my knee.
She loves her sons, she likes her guns, | and Triggernometry. | The media will jump the shark | When she makes history. | Well, JimRob knows shell pave the trolls | So controversially, | And Berg will knock Obama down | With friends of Hillary. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
I soon will be in Hawaii, | And then Ill look all round, | And when I find his birth record, | Ill fall upon the ground. | But if I do not find it, | This Freeperll surely die, | And when Im dead and buried, | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you cry for me; | Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
That said, posting a link to one's own blog can be considered bad form around here. (but not always)
You might find an Un-welcome mat rolled out for you?
I take it you know nothing of the culture here?
We've had much experience with people promoting blogs on this site. We are not here to be blog "customers" or guinea pigs for your own advantage or amusement. Toying with bloggers trying to get us to look at their stuff however, is one form of OUR own amusement.
Try to imagine it from our perspective. Think you can hang with this crowd? Maybe you can, maybe you can't.
But you did claim the blog was your own, which helps a little, in my own estimation. (some others have come here and refused to admit or deny the thing they were promoting was their own).
Often what we see is a "teaser", then a link to 'read more at'.
We call that blog-pimping, trolling for "hits".
That's sort of a no-no, too, if not the best way to piss off a certain cadre.
Since bloggers own their own content, there is no real need to excerpt (provided the content to be appropriate for this forum) since there could be no potential copy-write violations for them to post content here. Which means you could post the whole thing here...
If you were trying to save space and clutter here, by not posting it, or if you were trying not to be rude by posting the whole thing, then I could see how one could think that. And I'd appreciate the thought.
If it be too lengthy, like page after page, then edit, trim, or use something like [snip] to denote cuts & "jumps", giving us some intro, the key points in the body, and some form of summation.
Look around in some of the other forums a bit, to help get a feel for the place. If you believe the content to be of possible wide interest here, then try posting an entire blog entry. They may hate it, they may like it, who knows?
But do not assume the culture here accepts blog entries the same way they may accept other informational formats. (we chew those up for breakfast).
Contributions from the online "Examiner" (if you are familiar with how that works) are frequently sneered at, looked upon as the vanity publishing of the "news" realm. Blogs are considered much lower in esteem than that. They are -- bottom of the barrel until proven otherwise.
And yes, I know. How can you prove yourself if we won't even look? I see others have looked, and gave it decent reviews, but I won't, until I see something else, a bit something more.
That is the conundrum you yourself must first figure out. I'm taking the time here to give you some hints...
There is truly nothing new under the sun. What would be found at your "blogger" page, that has not been said elsewhere before, even over and over? Can you tell me that in five sentences or less?
You are welcome to stick around but I must warn you, this can be tough crowd (as I see you have already noticed?) and you must have some thickness to your hide --- or grow it quickly. Don't be prickly or "sensitive" if you can at help it. Yet one need not bow & scrape either. Hold onto your dignity, just don't be whiny or worse ---snooty--- while trying to demand respect. If they try yanking your chain -- just smile. If your stuff is good enough, it will earn enough respect -- just beware of being baited into losing your cool, and thus losing what respect which otherwise could be your due.
Straightforwardness and honesty however, can buy one enough grace, to help carry one through.
We don't necessarily need a full life's story. You can simply stick with whatever it is you wish to be saying.
But you have to tell us something true. Opinions we have plenty enough of already, and can find a fair number from valued sources, which we then bring here. Think you can run with the big dogs? Maybe...
If you are seeking acceptance & praise -- you may well find it, even here.
If you want analysis of the sort which will search for the good and the bad, and tell you the truth (it might be lots of bad news mixed in with some good) then you may have found that too. Yet that takes more work, and is often not much appreciated when effort is made to be thorough. I should charge by the hour.
So what will it be? Some content here, from yourself, or not? You didn't even give us a clue as to subject matter. That sort of thing reminds me of craigslist info-scam hustlers.
So tell us, just who are you?
LOL - that’s funny!
How about actually take the time to learn what the wall of separation of church and state letter was all about and stop regurgitating the same tried old liberal mantras of ignorance on the subject. Same with evolution.
Plus you really need to take some courses, or gets some books and learn it yourself, on economics and differing governing ideologies in understanding the true differences between all the “ism's”. Your just throwing out vague generalities and not very good ones at that in making your arguments. Which leads to a few of your blogs contradicting later blogs. Very confusing.
Then suggesting that voting Republican will cure all ills is just wrong. There are many republicans who are progressives and Progressivism is bad for our country. And these progressives are heading our country in the wrong direction as much as democrats and other liberal organizations. So just don't vote because there is an R, D, I, C, S, or L, etc.. in front of their name. Take the time to know what your true core beliefs and principles are and then find out if the person your voting for stands up for those so choose wisely. Learn what a person's voting record is and what they have said and done in the past so you know what they stand for before voting. Be informed.
Then there is the cross-sectioning of Libertarianism, Progressivism, athesim, with a sprinkeing of Conservatism. You need to pick one because they do not work well together and ends up developing way to much hypocrisy when you combine them and try to govern by and live that kind of life. Your are constantly sacraficing one for the other in trying to govern or live by which leads to totally inequality and less freedom for ever one.
One other thing if you don't believe we need God as in the God of the Holy Bible, the Son of God, Jesus, who sacrificed his life for our salvation, you need to really rethink why you believe in America? Because without God there would be no moral laws that our society could abide by. It is God where we get our right and wrong from not man. With out God who is to say that murdering despots such Stalin, Hiltler, Pol Pot, Mal Tse-tung,..etc are wrong? What standard would you use? Well guess what God set the standard in his laws for governing which if you go back and really look at what our Founding Fathers said and wrote you would see they were very Christian and because of that we have the Free Republic of governance that we live freely in today. Our inalienable rights were bestowed on us by our Creator "God". So if you believe in America you need to set down do some serious rethinking and studying on what you actually believe that makes us a civil society and a free nation.
Read this and really study it: The US Declaration of Independence states that God Himself bestowed our rights and liberties upon us. The entire American political experiment is based on that unique premise. No other bulwark exists to safeguard the natural rights of human beings except Divine sanction. Remove God, and you also remove all claims to liberty, rights, meaning and purpose.
Then once you grasp it Learn It, Live It, Love It. Because it is the only way you will ever have to actually being free.
You wanted feed back there you got it. Hope it was helpful.
I'll admit I went and skimmed through the one page. Said I wouldn't, but the guy got so much grief right out of the gate, thought I might owe it to him. Besides, some others broke trail, so to speak, so I had little to worry about just clicking on the link (which at times can be hazardous).
We'll see if he can take frank criticism. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do.
I hope he can learn from it and get his life together and figure out what he really believes in as core principles.
His latest couple of rants were pretty good then I started going down the line and earlier blogs entries began weaving all over the place and in some places it went right off the rails. He has a couple of good ones but the other things he wrote just overshadow them so much making one wonder what he really believes in.
As far as the others hitting on him because he is a blogger and posted on FR I could care less about that. Ever now and then you run across someone who is thinking outside the box and making a difference in their community and are good reads that give you pause to think about. This blog hmm... not so much.
“McLovin” Is that your first name or last name?
Yes, we're all trolls here.
Please write more blog posts. Your blog is very good and should get lots of hits.
I’ve spent the last several minutes laughing at those .gifs to the point that I woke the dog.
They are still trolls. I never said I had an issue with that, I enjoy trolling on other forums as well. I did not know you guys had an issue with people advertising their blogs here or trying to get feedback so I will not do it again. Another thing I did not notice was how popular this site was.. I thank you all for your time to at least comment on this post or take a gander at my blog.
It is allowed.
There is a bloggers/personal sub-forum. Your stuff could go there.
I expecially like the way it is set up so the sidebars are not there unless someone clicks to put them there.
The freeperbeaters will still accuse you of only posting here to make gobs of money from your ads, and try to discourage you from posting you blog here.
Don't let them get to you.
It's a few posters that are like squeaky wheels that are trying to get you not to post you blog at this site.
The bloggers section was put here at Free Republic for posts such as yours, that is where you should post you articles instead of in chat.
It's preferred that you post your entire article, so
the faidy cats oops, those that don't like blogs won't have to click on the link to your site. (did you know that you have bazillion tracking cookies and invasive ads? LOL)
If a blog article is several pages long, I prefer a posting of a giant portion of it and then a link to see the rest.
Or post part of it in the comments section until it is all posted.
Welcome to Free Republic.
The lower left one looks like ......oops nevermind : > )
Hey, I always imagined the freeperbeaters looked like that! Which one is you?
You wouldn’t recognize me from that.
I’ve had a makeover.
I was never intrested on making money from my blog, just a hobby of mine to blog. May I ask what invasive cookies are? Also, I could never figure out how to make it hide half the article so that people had to click on it to get the whole thing.
Don't give it another thought.
And never learn how to shorten an article. Never!
: > )
You got a long ways to go before you reach the mark set by this blog pimp. good luck.
