Really Dee? Can you say something other than 'really'? Really?
Been getting a crazy amount of page hits over the last week, so of course I have like nothing posted for 4 of the past 5 days to take advantage of that, so back to pre-blitz amounts of visitors.
Made this one for Moonburst, and looking back on it now, it seems a bit disjointed. Really! At this point, I am not quite sure what I was going for, other than to stress a certain word, almost like a mantra, though out the caption text, Here's what I said in the original posting:
I saw your preferences, and thought that some humiliation would be fun. I also wanted to see if I could work out a narrative that would stress certain concepts and be fun to read. Hopefully I accomplished what I set out to do in a way that you and others enjoy!Obvious to me now is that if I WANTED to do something as a mantra, it SHOULD be set to a caption that involves hypnosis or using the repetition to reinforce triggers somehow in the plot. Mostly what I did was get people that read it to say, "Really Dee? That is a complete and coherent caption?" The answer to that is, "yes, it IS a complete and coherent caption. Its just not a really GOOD caption." As now its almost a month since it was posted in the Trading Area and the recipient hasn't responded to it yet, I can probably be confident in my prognosis that its a "meh" caption, though I gave my idea a shot .. its the follow though that fell short of my goals!
PS. If it isn't quite clear, you are always female, but when wearing the boots you appear to look like your old self. I'm guessing you might just be kicking off your boots if you get any more horny for your boss!
Here is something that Britney/Steffi posted last night/this morning:
Its an admirable post, and one that us bloggers do feel from time to time. You want to make sure your readers get something interesting to read every few days, and yet you should hit others blogs regularly as well .. for inspiration, for support, for building a community, and of course, poaching ideas for discussions on your own blog! You can find the whole discussion here. Perhaps you can read it first before you read what I have to say.
I am part of the "Problem"....
I know full well, and better than most, how much comments/feedback can mean to a caption creator/blogger... Yet quite often, I don't comment, either...
I basically give myself a "pass", because I generally post so much more content than your average Blogger, but that's a cop-out. It really does only take a few moments to take the time to give someone a simple "thank you"...
Now, when I "take a break", as I just did, I do just that. I did not view, read or attempt to create any captions for several months. That means that those of you who did have a HUGE backlog (for me) of content that I am just largely ignorant of.
I "follow" about 100 Blogs... It is just not realistic or feasible to attempt to comment on every single Blog. It also neither realistic nor feasible to attempt to go back through all that I have missed and "catch up"... Even if I restricted myself to my dozen or so "favorite" Blogs, I would be able to nothing ELSE for several days, maybe even weeks :(
I found the comments intriguing, as I tend to do. When people comment, it means that the post is doing its job in stimulating others to respond and share their thoughts. What got my engine running even more was that I was paraphrased and cited for some of the things I've said here on my blog.
Helena (signed on as an anonymous poster) had a good response, especially for an English as a 2nd language speaker, and said, "In my case Dee Mentia nailed it on her blog when she said we are paranoid." Another anonymous person, Michelle, said :
absolutely agree with people who say that we are,in general, a paranoid bunch...especially those of us who have not yet worked up the courage to come out online or in real life. just take your example, britney...i mean you started over with this new blog, but your cyber trail lead some people back to steffi. isnt that just a few steps away from the worst fear of some of us here?I am so glad to see that people do read these blog posts, no matter who's blog they are posting comments on. Its obvious that they appreciate the work we do, even if they don't say so in the discussions we are having. Perhaps I am slowly knocking down the walls of resistance, or making someone think about something that hadn't questioned before. Maybe you've popped in here 50 times and never made a comment, but that 51st time, something in my post or in the comments section really got you stirred up and you needed to reply. That is exactly what I am waiting for!
what helena said was absolutely spot on: you cappers and bloggers deserve better appreciation. for most of us silent lurkers, you girls are the only outlets for our fantasies, the only source of our sense of belonging and not being totally alone living in our closets...
ok, before i choke on my own melodrama...one last to thing id lake to say to britney, dee, caitlyn, rachel, courtney, tiffany, and all of you cappers/bloggers out there: we lurkers may not be able to overcome our fears enough to leave comments, but we feel the magic your works bring into our lives. we appreciate it more than we can express (other than accumulated page views) and we cant thank you girls enough for that.
And to recap those "paranoid" people out there .. I don't log where you are from in the diagnostics of the website, and I don't have captcha so those using their phones or tables can comment if they so desire. The current weeks comments should appear right after you post them, after that, they are held up until I can view them to make sure they aren't spam (most spam bots tend to post their crap on older posts, hoping that moderators don't see them.) This also means that discussions in the current posts should flow freely without me having to pop in 10 times a day to approve comments. My privacy is dear to me, and i value yours as well.
I just love this animation and it fits the raw acoustic version of this song so well!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What are your essential TG blogs? As in, even on a busy day, you'll pop onto these people's site to see what has been said, even if they haven't posted anything new that day? With the photo I used, what would YOU have written as the story?
