In a 3-2 vote today, the Federal Communications Commission approved a measure to remove the tough net neutrality rules it put in place just two years ago. Those rules prevented internet providers from blocking and throttling traffic and offering paid fast lanes.

We Must Act Fast To Save Net Neutrality & Our Internet Before December 14th — Urgent Call To Action

Jerry — the creator of "Barnacules Nerdgasm"  
The FCC and Congress are voting on December 14th, 2017 to repeal the Net Neutrality laws that protect us internet users from ISP's Throttling, Blocking or Prioritizing internet traffic by regulating the ISP's (not the internet) as a utility so you can buy bandwidth and use it however you like without restrictions. Without the Net Neutrality laws in place the Internet as we know it will no longer exist and we will have to pay for premium packages and bundles for our favorite websites like Twitter, Facebook and Reddit.

Sundays And Blogging

(Photo credit:
Some people do blog on a Sunday; since it is like any other day of the week for them.

Now, it would be quite eerie if all bloggers refused to blog on a Sunday and the blogosphere came to a complete standstill.

There are bloggers that do not blog on Sundays; because it is considered by them as their day of rest (There is nothing at all wrong with that; after all, every blogger on the world wide web is entitled to some time away from all internet activities).

Some people have chosen not to blog on a Sunday, because of the fact that the incoming traffic to their site is, somewhat slow (Hmm. They are obviously not members of WordPress, because that blog site is always filled with lots of activity).

Blogger has a fair amount of activity on a Sunday; but it is quite a minuscule amount in comparison to the incoming traffic of people that WordPress attracts.

Some people on Blogger have chosen not to update their blog on a Sunday, because they feel as though they are wasting their time posting articles when their part of the blogosphere is quiet.

Now, what about those people like myself that go online on a Sunday to post articles, to read posts from others and to comment on them?

Do we all have to visit WordPress to fill that void on a Sunday?

Now, do not get me wrong; WordPress is a fabulous blog site with great bloggers on it (I would know, because I am also a proud member of the WordPress community).

I am merely suggesting that more people within the Blogger community should blog on a Sunday; which in turn will make Blogger a much livelier blog site on a Sunday.

Human beings are hardwired to be social;  therefore, if other bloggers on Blogger made the effort to blog on Sundays, other bloggers within the Blogger community would happily do the same.

Those bloggers on WordPress log in to their accounts on a Sunday, because they know without a doubt, that there is going to be lots of activity taking place on their blog site.

Hmm. I wonder: do bloggers on Weebly have the issue of their blog site being half-dead on a Sunday? I guess that would have to remain a mystery for the time being.

As bloggers, we have the freedom to blog (or not to blog) whenever we want and no one should be forced to blog on a Sunday.

Since I love blogging, people are guaranteed to see posts from me on both WordPress and on Blogger on a Sunday (Provided that I do not have any issues with my internet feed, or any technical difficulties with my computer).

To stay away from the blogosphere on a Sunday would not feel right for me; since I have been blogging regularly for quite sometime.

Thankfully, there are those who update their blogs on Sundays; they would provide me with something rather interesting to read on the day that a lot of bloggers on Blogger have chosen as their day off.

The Case Of Only Blogging On Mobile Devices

Smartphone And Tablet

A friend over at WordPress, told me the he uses his smartphone to do everything on the internet; he uses it to do searches on Google, visit websites, handle financial transactions and one of his favourite pastimes, blogging.

In the past, the majority of my internet browsing was done via smartphone; it was an average of ninety percent; but it was not one hundred percent mobile internet browsing (Back then, the remaining ten percent, was done through the aid of a laptop computer and a desktop computer; it was never my intentions of handling all of it through the usage of a mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet).

Today, the majority of my blogging is done via PC (And, I would not dream of having it any other way).

Oh well, we are all different; we would prefer to use electronic devices that we are more comfortable with; which is the reason why I would never ridicule anyone for wanting only to use a smartphone or a tablet to access the internet.

One of these days, I will try composing an article on a tablet and see how that turns out for me; I have already tried posting via my smartphone and that worked out okay; but I would not recommend using a smartphone to edit your template.

I guess the reason why some people have chosen to use only mobile devices to surf the world wide web is, because smartphones and tablets are the in thing and it is a lot of fun to post on the go.

Also, the average smartphone and the average tablet are way cheaper than a desktop computer or a laptop computer; so, it could be a case where some people have chosen to economize.

If you are one of those people who only use smartphones or tablets to access the internet, I would love to hear about it via the comments section of my blog.

Also, I would not mind finding out what the rest of you think about only using mobile devices to surf the world wide web; this can also be done via the comments section of my blog.

Is The Web One Giant Popularity Contest?

World wide web

In reality, people post their work on the internet, so it can be noticed; but some people have taken it to another level by the implementation of SEO techniques and the heavy utilization of social media tactics.

Nobody likes being a failure and somebody is always out there willing to shows us how to do it right.

What I do know for a fact is, that many bloggers love the attention and we do not mind having increased traffic to our blog.

Some bloggers have even gone all the way out by uploading a new theme for their blog and have been brainstorming morning, noon and night with the intentions of attracting you with their fancy titles of their posts; more bloggers and web administrators are doing whatever it takes to stand out, because someone told us that the world wide web is akin to a dog-eat-dog world.

Apparently, people like myself (and a few others that blog for the fun of it) are perceived as a dying breed of bloggers, because of the fact that more emphasis is placed on blogging being a fun activity than one done for the sole purpose of becoming popular).

Also, people blog for different reasons; while I may do it for the share fun of it, there are those who blog with the intentions of becoming tomorrow's superstars (Ha! I wish them the best of luck with that one).

Okay then, remember the old adage which states: "As you make your bed, so you must lie on it."
