I have absolutely nothing against blogs and posts from over the pond, they can be very entertaining. I do have angst about all the so-called ‘top blogs,’ and about all the so-called ‘top posts’ on Word Press (WP) which are given a link to visit. Those posts and blogs are generally not particularly special or outstanding. They all appear to be from one English-speaking continent. The Americas are not the only land masses on this planet with people who communicate in the English language. There are a lot of people who have great writing talent, which is of interest to a whole swathe of people who live in the Americas and elsewhere around the globe. It is unlikely I would see anything of the same calibre being recommended (or should I say given the heads up) on the ‘top’ listings picked out on this site by…. whom, and why?
Looking around on this site over the years, insofar as is possible, reveals little of other activity to explore. Either I am missing a trick or, WP is as it looks, rather impenetrable. It would be really good if it were possible to access other bloggers more easily. Surely there could be a system installed that would make it possible to be a more straightforward socially interactive site.
