Â Blogging has been driving me crazy these days. At least, trying to leave messages on other people’s blogs has become a real challenge. I’m not sure if it is my computer and Windows,which seems to always be updating its security or not, but every time I try to leave a message on a blog a signal comes up not once, but twice saying “Are you sure you want to go here? Security issues, etc.”. I always say yes. If I am going to post a comment on Blogger, at least once a day I have to totally sign in again with the same information they ask for each time. If it is Typepad, I sign in and it says it is good for two weeks but it is usually each day. Why, I don’t know. I’m wondering if it is because I am writing from France. Isn’t it amazing that computer systems pick this up? I am often given comments and warning in French too. AOL has started making my home page all French language and French news even though I have never requested this.
Â Anyway, I was commenting the other day to a friend that the Internet has led to many amazing things, even rather mystical things. First of all, blogging has become an incredible way to connect with people all over the world but it has also, in my case, led to some almost magical, serendipitous happenings. As my friend says, there are no coincidences, no accidents. And she does count the Internet as something mystical. As she said, it is pure energy and our lives are all about energy anyway. It’s funny to think about it like that but I think I will believe it.
