Not Thought Through

Have you seen the lovely pictures at the bottom of some bog entries?  The ones that say “You might also like …” and have an accompanying picture that entices you to read more and more and more posts.  I have.  I thought oh, oh I want something like that on my blog!

Unfortunately, if you don’t post a lot of pictures or have a picture with every entry then you just get a list of a couple of postings.  That wasn’t quite the look I was going for.  I guess I just assumed that the program could read my mind and pick the corresponding picture out of my head and paste it on the bottom of my posts.  CLEARLY, that was a LITTLE TO DIFFICULT for this program!

I know what you’re thinking … “you get what you pay for.”  Alright, I grant you I didn’t pay anything for the widget, but still!  Now I either have to 1. Stop caring that the list doesn’t include pictures (which is entirely possible) 2. Develop mad camera skills and start taking pictures (highly unlikely!) or 3. Post sub-par but, in my mind, passable pictures (also highly unlikely as that would involve cords, hooking things to the computer, downloading; oh, I’m tired already.  And since I haven’t even printed a picture since I bought a digital camera in 2002 I think I have a better chance of being eaten by a shark than I do of including *daily pictures in my posts!).

*Which is incredibly sad since I bought a SLR camera with the brilliant idea that simply buying the camera would equal knowing how to use it.  Darn it, perhaps I should have bought rock band instead!

No!  You can't tell me it actually found pictures!

Easy solution - Take a picture of yourself shoveling snow and attach it to every post. I would gladly read every one.

Sorry. The heat is getting to me and I can't help myself with the snow jokes.

Nice idea! I'll get right on that! Look, I'm going!
