It was over 8 years ago about this time of the year in 2005. There were about 50 or so of us humans, mostly from the good old USA, who were blogging on a fairly new blogging forum called Windows Live Spaces. We had all gotten to be good blogging friends and we called ourselves a blogging family. Jim had been diagnosed with lymphoma a few months earlier and I was trying to find a way to express myself.
At one time or another most of us had received a blogging award from Spaces, some more than one. There were a lot of problems at Spaces. Collectively the bunch of us decided to have one day a week that we could rant about Spaces and other things that were bothering us. And that is how the Wednesday Rant Day came into being.
I still have several of my blogging friends that follow my blog here. My twin, who was among my first blogging buddies, Paul, Joe, Nita, Rhapsody, Terry and many who are on Facebook now that read my blog from there. Windows Live Spaces closed its doors to blogging in mid 2010 and we had the choice of moving our blogs to Word Press or having them deleted. I made a copy of them and then sent them to Word Press which I am not very fond of. I have 3 blogs there and I update them sporadically. I have 3 blogs here on Blogger.
http://bethmariesmainblog.wordpress.com/ This is one of my Word Press blogs. You can go back as early as 2006 on there. I had deleted my first blog from 2005.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
