Just One … Please!

I posted my best
But I guess my posts weren’t good enough
Cause here I am: few likes no comments like before

Seems nothin’ ever changes
I’m back to being friendless
Wondering if I ought to blog
Or delete and just walk off the WordPress floor

Just One

Can’t figure what I keep doodling wrong
Why my posts never ‘sing a song’
Yes! What am I doodling wrong

Just One

Can’t figure how to finally “write it right”
Make the dopamine last for more than just one like
If I could just get to it
I know I could finally break through it
(Hmm hmm)

Just One …………

I do want to understand
Why I’m firing blanks posting crap
Why … can’t I get myself in hand
And admit to myself, my wife and my mother
That I’m no good as a blogger
Take my best and spread the butter
Find a way to get my shit together

JUST ONE …………

Can’t I find a way to finally “write it right”
Make the dopamine last for more than just one like
I know I could break through it
If I could just get a few followers, reads, likes, and comments

JUST ONE!

Whoa oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh …… I can get to it

Juuuuussssttttt one!!’

🎈💥💫….🙀😹🤡…🎉🎊 🎈

Isn’t this like plagiarism!?

No!

Just somewhat like Just Once, a James Ingram and Quincy Jones Song

Songwriters: Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil

    Not to worry. It’s summer. Blogging in summer melts into the cracks of the sidewalks and empty streets. Everybody’s gone to their local beach.

    I’m so new to this I feel as if there is no hope, but I’ve learned to cope. I touch those I can and for the rest, I will remain.

    2. There is hope! Go to Reader … query a tag or create your own tag … search people on applicable tags … read applicable blog posts … like as is deserved … and make an occasional comment. It will pay off in spades.

      My post ‘Just One’ is for humor sake … but I do often consider chucking the whole blog …

      Thanks! And keep your head low: fully focused on what you are doing, not looking around and daydreaming! And maybe not blogging too much!
