I Don't Do Circles!

Just when I find someone whose blog I might want to read after an interesting comment, I cannot read. Why do I have to join a circle? I want to read Mama. bonnie or Bonnie.mama, but I cannot. Why?

I have to join a stupid circle. (Nothing personal Bonnie.)

What is a circle? I don't mean a round thing. I mean a Circle. Is this like a kumbaya circle? Traffic circle? The circle of Life? Nope, not joining a circle no matter how interesting you are. Why are you in a circle?

Is this like an exclusive club? I am shut out? Well, la ti da to you, too!

Are we circling to fight off Indians that we antagonized in the first place? Somebody tell me. Everybody tell me. Maybe then I will get it.

Is it another arm of social media? Gaaaah! Help! I refuse to twitter. I barely go to facebook. Oh, I bet it has a sign-in every time I want to read something. No thanks! It's probably hard to get out of after I have spilled my guts with all my personal information. Will it be linked to facebook because someone needs another bazillion friends? Bet so! Can you believe "bazillion" did not get a red line under it?

You got a circle you want to rope me into joining? Well, just lasso me and throw me in. Do not make me sign up for one more thing. Help!

  1. Sounds like the Google Plus 'circle of friends'. You know? Google Plus? The social plug in that failed miserably. I don't think it beat My Space. ;)

    1. Mik,
      Uh, no. But, thanks. I think. Since I don't like fb, I am glad I did not fall for it.

  2. A circle is a round thing, connected with no end.

    1. Coffeypot,
      Please define "round."

      "No end" is what social media says to me. I won't go there.

      Smart ass!

    2. Coffeypot,
      LOL I needed that. I read it to a friend who laughed, too.

  3. Social media is badly named. I suspect that people spend so much time on it that it replaces their social life - says the dinosaur who doesn't play twitter and isn't on FB.

    1. EC,
      Right! I really don't know how people can think they have a social life when it is all unseen, just letters on the page that are not even as solid as ephemera sent through the mail. I only got a fb account because of peer pressure. Then, I don't go there often.
