I regularly receive emails from the 80′s kids, some of whom are just finding out about the blog and write in to say hello and thank me for what I’m doing and with that I say I’m incredibly humbled.
The plus side for a new arrival to the blog is a wealth of archives that has been accumulating over the past few years. The down side is a wealth of archives that has been accumulated over the past few years! You might want to keep a pad and pencil on hand and check off the one’s you’ve read and listened to otherwise you will definitely miss something worthwhile.
One other set-back is the inability to leave comments on older posts. Truth be told spammers are relentless to blog comments so I make no other choice but to close comments after a few days. It’s a set back for me also considering the amount of work I put into posts, it sucks if someone didn’t get the chance to say something nice about it.. their memories, their positive opinions…
So I decided to come up with this little supplemental post which will sit beautifully among the Common Threads where anyone can reference a previous post from the archives, talk about it – share a memory and what have you, and hopefully it will start some discussions among everyone.
As of this writing there are currently 665 posts, so there’s certainly no lack of material to pick from!
One other word about comments… This blog thrives because of the happy go lucky 80′s that I love, so let’s keep it happy ok. If you don’t have something nice to say than don’t say anything at all. If you’ve never said a word here on the blog, and then finally you speak and it’s with some form of negativity, I’m not going to approve your comment. I don’t need it and neither do any of the 80′s kids. You wanna talk smack, try youtube.
That aside… comments are open, what songs or posts are on your minds??
