You don't like me why don't you admit it

As you should all have noticed the lovely people in IT Services have now added the favourite blogs feature to the blogosphere and slowly people during the day have been creating their favourites. For those who haven't noticed we can make all these favourite viewable to different people so that others can see which blogs we find interesting and read regularly.

At first the idea of seeing other peoples favourites was appealing until I looked at one or two of my favourite blogs and saw I wasn't on their favourites list, it was depressing to see, and at that moment I decided that I wouldn't publish my favourites list as not to offend those who aren't on it. After some thought though, I have changed my mind and decided that I don't really care if I'm not on others favourites, at the end of the day my blog isn't particularly interesting or funny.

I am on a few peoples favourites (some of which were unexpected) which is really nice to see, although I do wonder why sometimes, I've never seen my writing as particularly good, and if its is insightful its usually only insightful about me and not much else. Seeing myself on others favourites has made me feel more motivated to keep up my blogging as its now clear its not only myself that finds my ramblings, which are largely for my own benifit and self-confidence, useful.

So whilever I have fans and, to be honest, even if I didn't I shall blog on.

  1. I expect equal in return.

  2. I'm adding blogs as I go along so some that I do read are not on my list yet…

  3. You were on mine from the start. But where I am to be found on yours? (cries bitterly)

  4. But ditto to Holly – I can't splurge the lot in one go. And "favourite" is really (in blogging terms) just meant to be a convenience. It doesn't have a value. How do you feel about being someone's convenience?

  6. I've always been someone's convenience, its not particularly well-payed and I tend to be very tired in the mornings. You're on my favourite list, so stop complaining, whingebucket!

  7. I suppose a whinge-bucket is as good a convenience as any. But how will any of you learn about all the most pressing issues in cyber-jurisprudence and unisex cosmetics if you don't make sure you can get onto me with a single click? (and the relief you would feel at having another convenience!)

  8. "Favourites" is misleading. I have that arse James Hughes on my "Favourites" list and I hate him and everything that flows forth from his scabby, diseased hands.

  9. Yeah, that arse James Hughes is a plague to my existence, and he gave me horrendous diseases when he shook my hand

  10. I don't have anyone registered as favourites, I just read what looks interesting and keep the bum chumming out of it.

    That's another reason they should have kept the old topic lists with all the new entries and hot topics. For MY PERSONAL BENEFIT.

  11. Ok, points taken, I may add some of you to my favourites who aren't currently listed when I get a moment. I'd be interested to know how the recent topics feature now works as I appear to be in it with this entry which isn't particularly decent or contraversial.
