Deranged Writers Enjoying Righteous Posts

As the President -and thus far only member of – Deranged Writers Enjoying Righteous Posts
(DWERP) it is time for our first announcement.

bloggers

Due to this Deranged Writer being out of town for three days, secluded in the boonies of an un-named Nevada town, the Inbox count climbed from 250+ to 782 unopened emails. Had a great time on the ranch raking and hauling sagebrush and oh those tumbling tumble weeds…. Lots of time with the horses and seeing friends.

National Security forbids the naming of this locality so it can only be revealed that there is limited cell service and no Internet hook-ups. Said town is  famous for being very close to the site of major nuclear testing in the 1950’s, resulting in the death of every single member of a Hollywood blockbuster to drop dead of cancer within 20 years of said production. Favorite cocktail at the local watering hole? A ‘Big-Ass Tumor on the Rocks.’ I had a double. Thought the sign read ‘Tuber’ and figured it was a local vodka.

So, besides spending time near this friendly, albeit somewhat barren city, your DWERP President was not only devoid of contact to the Interwebs, but also busy avoiding tap water contaminated with arsenic. Seriously. Just in case you’re wondering a river does run through it and many large and tasty ranch and farm vegetables are grown in the region.

Let’s  face it, if you were going to pick a place for nuclear testing Nevada is the place. Really, the drive from Reno to Las Vegas appears as though the entire state has been nuked anyway.

But I digress.

It’s the damned Inbox thing. I cannot keep up. The stress in simply SEEING all of that unopened email (98% of which are new Blog posts and Comments on Blog posts) is cause to reach for the Xanax AND Dalmane. It also keeps me from even attempting to write. Just knowing that there are so many other wonderful writers out there, that I cannot keep up with, dulls my creativity and fills me with guilt. It’s just impossible .

In an effort to keep DWERP alive, and yours truly out of  The Reno Home for The Cognitively Impaired I am deleting every post. A few will be kept to read. Miss R has enough addictions and does not need to add benzodiazepines to the list.

Apologies to all of you wonderful bloggers who have posted over the last 4 or 5 days. Will do my best to catch up.

Until then… DWERP ON!

~Miss R

    • EG: You are the official Second Member of DWERP. Been deleting over an hour… up to March 7th now. Just didn’t dawn on me how MANY emails/posts there were. Damn. It’s too early to drink to your induction.
      Many thanks for the understanding and true empathy of a companion DWERP.

      • I wholly endorse wholesale deletion. I partake often. Who in the (&^% says it is too stinking early to drink? I am on my second. What time is it? Who cares? It is still light out, and I am ready to get lit.

        Shall I pass you both something flamingly flavorful?

  2. Hey you need to start un-following everyone Miss Blackraven and then you will not be swamped down with so much mail, as WP has a true fetish for it, nooooooooo I mean a fetish for the mailings naughty 🙂

    Actually it is very good un-following and it gives you the opportunity of just hitting the follow option on the blogs you like the most, and as the Meercat on TV always says ‘Simples’ so get on with that tomorrow or whenever you can and just see those numbers fall 🙂 Be good too if that is possible for you 😉 lol

    Oh yes and if you are not being too Radioactive later you can have a whip round, sort of just choosing a few Follows to keep your inbox activated… But not ALL of those you have now okay? Wow I am being a tad Masterful there 😉 lol

    • Andro, naturally you are a (dark) genius. Believe it or not I only follow ten blogs. Have unsubscribed from some and either get the other 5 via RSS (which I always forget to check on Yahoo) or have simply divorced. Still check up but get no emails to go through.
      The problem is that I always click ‘check here for updates on this post.’
      Think that this is it.
      Could just be a combo of that and OCD.
      Dear gawd ANOTHER fucking point to bring up in the 4x yearly visit to the shrink…. who is happy to sit there and say ‘having any side effects from the medication?’
      My answer is ‘Why yes, they aren’t doing a fucking thing.’
      He refills the same crap and we’re off to the races. Or Blog in my case.

      I have checked my ‘stats’ maybe five times since 2006 when I began the WP blog. Numbers are nuttin to me.
      Maybe should cut down to eight. But hell… there are so many fab writers out there!

      • There are settings to stop the e mails though have you looked past all the cobwebs in there, well just uncheck a few boxes and like hey bleeding presto those numbers will drop faster than a hobo on crack 🙂 That shrink of yours needs popping onto the table and given a stiff one, nooooo not that but he needs a big gulp of something strong enough before we tell him that his choice of medication sucks, oh yes and we can hang him upside down out of the window if he doesn’t believe us, after that he will be revising his choices and changing his shorts 🙂 lol

        Wow on here since 2006 you have certainly seen a lot of changes in that time then? I think adding a blogroll with just the one’s you enjoy and then visiting them whenever you can, that way it cuts down on the e mails and gives you a better outlook on the blogosphere, blimey even shrink features will approve as we won’t need to be giving him the rundown on the DWERP situation, but we can still dangle him out of the window if you like just for a bit of fun 🙂 Yes I am joking 🙂 I think? 😉 lol

        Be good now Miss. Blackraven and don’t be too hard on that shrink, unless he tries anything we don’t like, and then it is game on… the poor fellah must be crapping his pants 😦 lol

  7. Sheesh… took me like 5 mnts to scroll all the way through all these comments to get to your “leave a reply” box….
    So, I sub a lot of people. Get several hundred emails a day. Granted, I’m always on line, work and home, so it’s easier for me to keep up than it is for others. But I have a handy-dandy method… I go to the wordpress dot com site and choose the “Read Blogs” tab. There, all the postings from the blogs I sub show there. Now, I use Firefox for this stie and I have installed an app called “Cool Previews.” Basically, whenever there is a link on a page, a little icon shows next to the link. When I hover over the icon, then a pop-up window appears with that site – fully functional. In fact, I’m commenting now via this little pop-up. So, what this allows me to do is scroll down through all the postings at one time (no open email, click link, go to page, return to email, delete, open email, click on link… yada yada yada). Then when there is a posting from one of my fav’s (like you), I hover over the icon and the pop-up comes up for me to read and comment. Never have to leave this screen/tab.

    I also don’t check to follow-up comments. Now that all replies show in the number in the top bar in the drop down, I’m good with that. Now, when I was checking to receive email follow up’s, I was getting way too many emails and didn’t have that much time to read everyone elses comments.

    So…. there ya go. Cheers!
