What would THEY say?

Well, I missed my normal blog posting schedule yesterday – not sure why, exactly, but just did – so I’m writing on Thursday instead.

Does this matter?
Why do I write the blog on Wednesday, you might ask?
Well, when I decided to write this blog I did a little research (and really, I do mean a little) and something I read said that Wednesday was the best day to post a blog.
Now, do I know why this is?  No.  Do I know who said this?  No. 
I will give it to the ever-present, ubiquitous “THEY” who say lots of things that we end up believing.
THEY said that Wednesday was the best day to post a blog.  Funnily enough, I have had several people (two, I think) of the multitude (of tens) who read this blog each week tell me that they never even see my posts until Saturday.  Saturday is the day that I re-post the blog that I write on Wednesdays (except for today, of course – today the Wednesday blog will be posted on Thursday – confused yet, ‘cause I kinda am).  And I decided to re-post on Saturdays all by myself – THEY had nothing to do with it.
The more that computers and the World Wide Web can provide us with what THEY say at the touch of a Google search, the more we may believe it.  Is that smart?
Access to information is amazing, but I want to always think for myself.  Maybe I need to Google that – THEY may know something I don’t.
My #FundraisingFriday $10 gift is going to the Wikimedia Foundation.  I hope that THEY approve.


  1. I have decided that "they" are really only three people locked up somewhere in area 51!

  2. Love that, Leslie -- maybe you and I need to be 2 of the 3. How about George Clooney for #3?

    1. I'll go for that. BTW My #FundraisingFriday choice this week is the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council.

    2. My dad was from Pittsburgh -- I'll check them out!

  3. Life is full of people telling you the right thing to do - most of the time it is just what they WANT you to do, not what you should do.

  4. Good point, John! Although I must admit that my mom is right most of the time -- don't tell her I said that, though....
