RDP Friday: Prompt


Need I say more. This is me in the afternoon sitting at the computer. And what I am doing, I am trying to figure out what to write for my daily prompt. Do I have a suitable photo? Of course I will find one somewhere. In this case I knew what I wanted but they were all photos before I became a golden oldie and also with my older computers. I recruited Mr. Swiss to take the photo with my mobile phone and he did it quite well, despite the problems he had with holding the phone. I am sitting on the porch outside on this wonderful summer day.

It was time to brush up my blogging image and so here I am complete with my apple computer. I also have an Acer computer, but I keep that one for mainly storing my photos. Of course I also use it for my daily prompt blogs now and again.

I have been blogging for many years, 10 I believe and in many places. My first blogging experience was Yahoo 350 which closed down. I then discovered Multiply and that was really fun. I got to know many other bloggers but Multiply also closed (mainly through greed of the owner who moved to Indonesia and decided to transform it into a marketing platform). I still have contact with many from that time: most found a new home in Facebook. Basically I dislike Facebook, but I have my own little corner there.

WordPress was always a sideline for me. I discovered their Daily Prompts and at last knew what to write, more or less. This section also closed, but thanks to the enterprising members that decided to spend time and energy to do it for us, I am still in my little corner of the WordPress world.

I took a course once on web assistant and even made my own site. I also hosted a site with a few others many years ago and realise the responsibility and hard work it needs to maintain its success.

Today is our first annual anniversary, so a big thank you to all involved.

Daily Prompts

There was a time when we received a daily prompt
I always wrote something, although was often stomped
Twas another brick in the wall of ideas to write and compose
But then the wall collapsed on us, the reason nobody knows
They said it would be coming to an end but the wall would still be there
We could write on all the old ideas although that was not fair
You had a computer, an empty screen but needed ideas to write
Where were your friends whose thoughts you read, they disappeared out of sight
And then the human survival strain began to take effect
Bloggers united became active, the idea was perfect
Suddenly prompts appeared everywhere, we were spoilt for a choice
I was hopping from prompt to prompt all day and now I could rejoice
The wall is gone no longer there, the tiles are crumbling down
A cold wind blows throughout the land, it has become a ghost town
