      1. Gosh I hope you are not a bot because I am ‘approving’ on my phone (laptop makes it easier to see what you are going)-Wordpress added the reblog feature (borrowing from tumblr) a little over a year ago and it made it very intuitive – I like the whole idea of collective consciousness and so choose specific posts (whose categories matter to no one but me!) my writing tends to be an ongoing work in progress. Cheers!
