Musing Mondays (September 30)

Musing Mondays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

  • Describe one of your reading habits.
  • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
  • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
  • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
  • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
  • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing:

I am on too many social networks. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Goodreads, Instagram, Flickr… I do them all. I have this blog on WordPress and another one on Blogspot. So when I got another invite to another social network that is meant to be about books, what did I do? I signed up, of course! Have you heard of Riffle? It is like Pinterest, but it is about books and books alone.. so a cross between Pinterest and Goodreads. I have started ‘following’ some boards and the whole deal, but I don’t know where it’s all going to go. I’m happy with Pinterest and I’m happy with Goodreads, but do I want an amalgamation of the two? Do I?
Well I don’t know yet… when I do, I’ll let you know.
Are you on too many social networks?

About Spam…

Well, so far, I’ve seen no reason to not trust WordPress. But, a couple of days ago, I noticed a sudden spike in the number of comments marked ‘spam’. I never check that folder… this time I did. I found that about 40% of the commens were not spam at all! They were all from regular other bloggers who had written nice things, no profanity, no nothing! Now, why would that be…

Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you’d have commented on some post and it never appeared on my blog, it is possible that it got flagged as spam and then deleted automatically after a few days… what a tragic loss! But from now on, I will be checking the folder regularly, so no worries!

If you know why this might be happening, do let me know.

Thanks for your words, all of you 🙂
