welcome_to_blather
User24 Hopefully this blathe will reach more than 0 new blatherskites...

!!Welcome to Blather!!

A few things:

there are no 'posts', 'rooms', or anything else, this is called a blathe

I am a blatherskite, you, too are a blatherskite

To create a new word, scroll to the bottom of an existing blathe, and hit the "blather" link, then in the 'word' box, type the new word!

You don't have to type an email addy.

To see what blathes a person has contributed to, click their name on the blathe.

To see what was blathed when, click the date of the blathe.

You MUST look at

blathermaze_entrance

at some point in your blatherage.

there's no sign-up, login, etc, you surf, blathe and leave, that's all.

Hell, you don't even have to blathe.

If you don't like blue, try

If you don't like red or blue, well, erm, ah, dammit, I dunno.

tourist If you weren't sent here by someone you know, Then the chances are high that you came here by accident, shear curiosity.
When I first came it was a result of just typing words into search engines and seeing what would come up.
I can't recall the word that opened the door, But it might as well have been "Open O Sesame", For the door swung wide and the place seemed deserted.
But everywhere I wandered I could find evidence of recent (and not so recent) occupation. Like a city that had just been evacuated, Personal belongings left where they lay. Plates of food still warm on the table. I picked up a chalk and started marking messeges on the wall, to mark my way, and maybe locate the departed inhabitants (or discover the bodies surrounded by Kool-Aid cups and tattered Bibles).
The inhabitants were everywhere, Hiding like the Munchkins.
It was such an enchanting land that I never hardly go anywhere else anymore.
Except through the Purple_Door.

minnesota_chris now now, people who are computer clueless can be fine writers. Whitman, for instance.

I've been wanting to make a "how to blather" guide for a while now. I mean, anyone can write anything they want, but some blathes are downright cool.

IMHO, write something unique. Something you've noticed, felt, seen. If nothing else, write about something interesting that happened to you in the past week.

Then reread it (I know, reworking sucks, but it's the only way to write well). Change any words that didn't quite say what you wanted. Shorten/tighten whenever possible. Use cool words and metaphors if you can.

Decide if you have a point. To entertain? Ok, is it entertaining? To inform? Well, first of all, is anyone listening? Or is it just drunken ranting? Remove anything that's off your target. Nix the whole message if need be.

green eyed gwen wow the blather world seems so much bigger
do you ever just feel lost?
031231
...
u24 heh.. yeah, it's huge, I mean, like, really really quite massive indeed.. but lost? not really.. we're explorers, but more than that, we can add to the habitats we find without destroying them, and over time, I've memorised a small map of a few of the parts, and created (and destroyed) a few safe-havens. yeah.

:)

...
misstree one little thing of note:
if it's taking a while for a page to load after you've hit the little "blather" button on the bottom right, PLEASE, be patient; hitting it multiple times is what causes repeats of the same post, which is just durned annoying. thankyoupleasepullthrough.

jenny enny dots I'm a real newbie here. I'd like to make an observation. I'm not sure why but something about making every word you say a link is downright fascinating! It's the power of words. For someone with an attention span of not much more than a few letters, it makes reading much easier. And it's kind of ego boost to know that even if you don't respond to my whole sentence, you might at least respond to to a single word. It's a place to be liberated to feel free. I still hold onto rational, logical thoughts, but occasionally it helps my mind to shift to something more abstract. Thank you Blather for helping me find you!! 040123

Dafremen "Blatherskites are paper sails
To catch the winds of our expression
The nothingness that is our expression, the wanting-to-be-somethingness that it represents
Inseparable from these expressions are the rules of order found in their chaos
Like the strings that keep blatherskites tied to the ground
These tethers are tested to their limits, on occasion snapping free from restraint
Twisting and gliding prettily yet swiftly to the ground, we find that blatherskites need these strings to keep them soaring, to keep them stable.

These strings that we place on our expression must be both delicate but enduring.

Mutual respect regardless of personal prejudice allows blatherskites to stay tied to their individual ground.

But it is the unchallenged wind of expression that allows blatherskites to find their mutual joy against the background of a common sky."

That was the inimitable and redoubtable Dafremen. As birdmad said "Nice one man"

pipedream but we aren't going to tell you how to crate your own blathe; that's a magic hush-hush type o' thing ;) 040123
...
u24 if you're looking for a generic blathe, eg, something to do with monkeys, you could go to

http://blather.newdream.net/m/

and see a list of every blathe beginning with 'm'. This won't work for 'i', 'h' and 'd', but thankfully, some totally incredible guy created
index_of_i
index_of_h, and
index_of_d

thunderbuck ram This page (and other well meaning guidance notes) kind of upset me a bit. It was like being herded by one of those tourist guides waving a flag in the air and telling me to tie a yellow spotted cloth round my neck or wear a bright purple hat and follow. At the same time I could almost feel a wall being put around me as I was chained to a desk and a hundred instruction manuals were unceremoniously dumped in front of me: "No escape until you have read all these - and there will be a test later".
I'm just going to keep on wandering on my own, not knowing why, not knowing where, and not giving a toss whether what I write is good, bad or indifferent; not caring if anybody reads it or nobody reads it, whether they like it or not.
Thanks for the welcome all the same.

BnB I stumbled across this site many years ago by throwing random words into my search engine. Over time, I forgot it existed. But now, I have rediscovered it.

Wow... now that I'm back, I wonder how I forgot about it's presence... It has a wonder and a magical pull that I just can't describe... Oh well, I'm just glad I found this place again. :)

() ( for me, i try to adhere to the principle of not doing anything here that i would not do in a notebook or offline in a word processor. i also try not to use blather as chat, a scratch pad, first draft, or a bathroom wall. because of it's lasting nature, i try to blathe in a way that i will find compelling to re-read, forever. and though i am ultimately blathing to please myself, i try to remember, that there is a public aspect to these works. i try to be my own worst critic, so that criticism from others (and it will come) is not as likely. i try to make artful works. or thoughtful ones.

ultimately, it is about self-respect. 070611 zeke )
