I Ain't Dead Yet
OK, calm the frig down. I just didn’t have an idea for a post yesterday. Between that and being too lazy to look through my tickler file of things I want to write about; I took an easy way out.
I am not closing down Rust any time soon, and if I were it wouldn’t be with a whimper of a pathetic post. There would be a count-down to the final day and there would be a party at the end. I’d even invite the people I’ve pissed off over the years.
Leslie did a Facebook post about the demise of Rust yesterday and she got responses from Rust readers; many I have never met, heard from or knew were reading regularly.
I liken Rust to a dairy farm. One doesn’t get a day off on a dairy. The first milking of the day is when I log in during the morning to reply to the comments from the previous days post. The next milking is when I return later and post a story or two that will post automatically at 4:00am on what ever date I want it to run.
There have been times where I’ve had something like 30 posts ready to go and there have been other times where I put the finishing key strokes at 10pm on a piece that will up-load at 4am.
I was heartened to see all the positive feed back on Leslie’s post. Thanks everyone, but I'm here to stay.
