‘As the World Turns’. I never watched it. During the short time I watched soap operas, I switched the channel to it now and again to taste the flavor but it seemed leaden and boring to me. But they must be doing something right!
I’d like to see a soap opera called ‘As the World Blogs’.
There’s always a story to be found in the world of blogging!
In the latest episode (set on Karen’s computer) there has been some excitement. Two new and startling dramas were performed for her viewing pleasure. The first was the moment when upon clicking on an incoming link the world itself started to renew itself over and over again, faster than a speeding bullet – and even kryptonite could not stop it. The world of the Constantly Renewing Page had been entered without warning, and what a ride it was! Zap zap zap zap zap! went the pages of the link entered at a rate previously unseen by the human eye. Excellent, I imagine this is – for viewing counts. I envy that blogger. They must be able to read much much faster than I!
The other drama was not as vivid but more quiet. Sinister, if you will – if we are talking drama. More like a minor Pain in the Neck, if we are not. Into Karen’s computer entered an intruder. Quietly and without fanfare the intruder moved in and hid under the ‘most clicked pages’ section, though the WordPress measurements did not show him as ‘most clicked’. The intruder was a link to another world . . . the world where the intruder usually sits. Rather like a guest who comes to dinner then never leaves, getting fatter and fatter by the clicks. The action continued as Karen, acting in her sometimes
bitchy authoritative way, moved quickly to flick off click off and remove the intruder’s link, whereupon he disappeared into the fog of the always-swirling virtual universe.
‘As the World Blogs’. Stay tuned for more episodes.
