I am not ignoring anyone!

Like most bloggers, I love receiving comments on my blogs, and always try to respond to them by posting a comment on your blogs. But lately it has become increasingly difficult to access some blogs, due to the enormous amount of graphics they use. The reason my blog headings are so plain is not just because I'm not clever enough to do fancy stuff on my computer. I also leave them as simple as possible because the downloading process is a lot faster for readers as well as me!
So, my apologies to those of you who post comments here but haven't had a response. If I get on to Ken's laptop (once in a blue moon), I can usually access most of my favourite blogs, and will leave a comment. But if I don't, it just means your blog is too complex for my ancient PC (11 years old) and OS (ME, cc 2000)! I have another computer on order, which is about 5 years old and uses the XP Op.System. Yeah, I know it's old too, but not as old as mine, and it will only cost me $290 for the modem, LCD screen, keyboard and mouse, so hopefully it will do me for another couple of years, because I just cannot afford to buy a brand new one!

I understand the graphics problem. When I try to access a blog and it takes forever to load I move on. Widgets, music players, graphics links. I am probably missing some great blogs, but the waiting is a pain.

Thanks for understanding, Cathy :-)

Don't worry Gina, we understand you. That's also the reason why I don't put gadgets on my blog. It's only putting many photos on some of the posts that I cannot help because I really wanted to show the readers as much as I can.

Hugs :-)
