What a thoughtful post. I'm not sure I believe in God, but if I did, I think my only conclusion would be that He (She? It? that's problem #1) is leaving us alone to work through the positives and negatives so we can grow from the experience. I would like to think that when we suffer, so does the deity, while choosing not to interfere. It's either a sign of my great wisdom or complete and utter superstition.

+Jack Steiner If you're going to make your study of commenting systems a little more scientific, you need to swap positions with Google+ and livefyre. Most people will comment using the system that comes first.

Also, I unfollowed you on Twitter because the vast majority of your tweets are automatic Triberr spam. I'm pretty selective about who I follow and I don't want my Twitter stream to have that kind of junk.

+Andi-Roo TheWorldForRealz +Jack Steiner Gosh, I had NO IDEA that it was unacceptable to say in the comments that I unfollowed someone on Twitter. People follow and unfollow every day. The man has thousands of followers and I'm sure he never noticed that someone he doesn't follow decided to quit following him. I'm not trying to be mean. Really. 

But mostly, this was about my reaction to Triberr on Twitter since that was the focus of this post. IMO, Triberr spam on Twitter is not much different from DMs asking me to buy your book if I follow back on Twitter. I always unfollow those people immediately. I left Jack on my Twitter stream for a very long time even though he never followed me back and 95% of his posts look like they come from a spambot. I think Jack is an amazing writer. I subscribed to his blog so I can see all of his posts. But when I followed the links in his Twitter feed, too many of his fellow Triberr writers wrote on topics that were not of interest to me, or they weren't very good writers.

If I were as good at writing as Jack is, I would have to seriously consider whether it's in my best interests to promote bad writing. Which is what I think he's doing sometimes. Here's a blog post that really sums up what I'm talking about.  http://bit.ly/19o5EU9

+Jack Steiner I know you have your reasons for not using your face on your blog, but if you want to increase engagement I think you should consider using an avatar that looks more like a person. Perhaps a cartoon or something? The internet is not like it was 10-15 years ago. People don't like to interact with a landscape.

+Pamela Reynoso I have to check the mobile side again. I have made some changes that might have messed with it. Thank you for mentioning it, I appreciate the tip.

Today, Generation Fabulous is having a bloghop using the songs of summer. Here's my contribution. http://bit.ly/1d0aw2h
Summer is winding down, so in these last few days before fall begins let's listen to the sounds of summer and take a virtual summer vacation together.

I am a mommy and I am a blogger, but I am not a Mommy Blogger™. I suspect middle-aged bloggers are the ultimate winners. We have resigned from the Mommy Wars. As far as the toilet seat? Close the lid. It keeps the germs contained when you flush. Also, you need to learn some different numbers. Perhaps 42? 
BufferIt is a few minutes after 11 PM in Texas and the thermostat says it is about 92 outside on a partially cloudy and moonlit night. Got a cold Shiner Bock in hand and a thousand words begging to flow from fingertip onto the page and you want to know is the headline another example […]

+Jack Steiner You're right. New parents are so very, very serious about it all. They suddenly realize they are the Keepers of the Next Generation and it weighs them down.

I can provide 142 examples I've seen just this week.

Horrible, horrible experience. I had an 11:15 appointment and arrived 3 minutes late. No one at the front desk, but I signed in and noted the time of my appointment on the sheet. No one else on the list had an appointment. At 11:30 when they called the 3rd person since my arrival I asked the person calling patients if they were paying any attention to appointment times. THEN, the woman had the audacity to tell me that their system was down and my appointment didn't matter and they weren't actually doing any testing today. Do NOT go to this location!

What a great store! They special ordered Green's gluten free beer for us. Just got home from their once-a-month event. There was live music and food tastings.
