This Might Interest You

Posted by terrepruitt on March 5, 2018

I’ve been blogging for a long time. At least I think it is a long time. I know there are people out there who have been blogging for even longer, but to me nine years is a long time. In fact this month is my nine year anniversary to the blogging world. I started in March of 2009. Well, since I have been blogging so long and not all of you have been reading my blog that long, I thought I would point out some posts that you might be interested in. Keeping in mind the comments I have received and the conversations I have had with some of you. Also keeping in mind your blogs, here are a few posts that I thought I would point out in case any of you might be interested.

This is one about an amazing product that helps me with my bumps and bruises. Some of you may be interested.  The product is Zheng Gu Shui.

Foam Rollers are COOL! is a post about two stretches that you can do with a foam roller. Many of us need to stretch more often and many of us love it when we do. These are super easy ones some of you may like.

I teach Nia, you may have heard :-). One of the things I love about Nia is that a lot of our practices within the practice can be applied to life. Here is a post about Sustain, Increase, Tweak, we do it in Nia while dancing and it can easily be applied to our every day life.

I LOVE to watch birds taking a bath in our bird bath. We used to have blue jays that would come back every year to have their babies near by. One time I got a few photos of a baby taking a bath. Even though he may look big, he is a baby. The young ones usually look larger and fluffier than the adults. Pictures do not capture the joy this bird seemed to be experiencing! This post has is about a Baby Blue Jay Bath.

Hummingbirds’ beaks are not straws they suck through, they actually have really long tongues. You can see that in my Hummingbird Tongues post.

More for the bird lovers: Silhouettes

For the dog lovers: Honey, I Shrunk the Doberman Pinscher

The comments on this one are worth a read, Lyrics Gone Wrong. Too funny!

Some nice shots of a beach trip. Do you wanna see the ocean? Check out my post Santa Cruz, California

Ahh, this one I am posting just to remind myself . . . . I need a color for that! Color Me A Reminder

Ok, sorry, I have shared more than I was planning, because I want you to look at all of them, but ten might be too much. I might just have to do another post somewhere along the way to point out some of my old posts that might be of interest to you. And get them some love.

Thanks for taking a look.

Paid Gooblygook

Posted by terrepruitt on September 25, 2014

I have asked on Twitter time and time again.  I have received no reply.  Perhaps people thought it was a rhetorical question.  Perhaps no one else has experienced this.  Perhaps they thought I was joking.  Perhaps it was such a “No duh!” to them no one has bothered to answer.  But my question is:  Do people . . . owners of websites . . . pay other people, primarily those who do not speak English as their first language, to go onto other people’s blogs and leave comments?  I get the weirdest comments.  I get comments that have NOTHING to do with the post.  I get comments where the person posting states their name is Samantha Garblygook, with an e-mail of habeebsrab@xxx.com, and the web address will be for Youtube.  Odd stuff like that.  I have received comments FIVE paragraphs long about washing machines or some computer part.  And the way they type the comments is obvious that they are typing them in a way so they can search for them.  With every “the” spelled tthe, with every “are” spelled arre . . . stuff like that.  I cannot imagine people just doing this on their own.  I can’t imagine Samantha or Habeeb (whatever their real name might be) going onto the internet to leave a comment to promote an appliance repair site or a lawyer’s site just to be nice.  Just because.  So the site owners must be paying these people, right?  They are having people go out and comment on a lot of blogs to try to get traffic back to their site, right?

Sometimes the comments make sense, but they have the mismatched name and e-mail, as I have mentioned.  Or they have the purposefully misspelled words as I have also mentioned.  But sometimes the comments are just gobblygook.  They make no sense at all.  They are just words strung together.  Or there might be one sentence or a two or three word combination that MIGHT sort of make sense but not really.  So odd.  Actually the ones that make absolutely NO sense at all are becoming fewer and farther between.  Now it is more of the comments that have NOTHING, NOT. A. THING. to do with the post they are commenting on or they have a huge number of words crafted with misspellings.  I am getting a lot of these lately.

I probably get at least 10 a day.  That is a lot.  It makes me laugh because some of them sound like nice comments.  They sound sweet, but “I reallly love tthe way you expose tthe information to mme on this terriffic site.  It is clear tthe information meanns allot to you.  Could you tell mme tthe best webblog to use?  You will be famous withh your blogging.” is clearly spam.  Ha!  Yes.  I love exposing information and I am famous.  Sigh.

I used to get excited when I saw that little number that indicates I have a comment.  Now I know it will just bbe a spaam comment.  I used to wonder why they typed like that because it is clearly calculated then my hubby said it was so they can search for their specific comment.  The type-os would be unique to them.  Yeah, makes perfect sense.  So, I think once or twice, the comment sounded nice, so I edited out the type-os and approved it.  🙂

The comments today are hilarious.  Once goes from talking about hair to digestion and then back to hair.  Two talk about streaming movies.  One actually says, “Try to knife him to see that he’s not down and out just yet.”  WHAT???????

So is that what is happening, are people PAYING other people to leave these types of comments?  Do you have a blog?  Do you experience these crazy comments on your blog?

Hello, It’s Me!

Posted by terrepruitt on March 4, 2009

Ok, so here again I can blame my husband.   I am here blogging and it is all his fault.  He has been telling me for a while that I should write a blog.  I keep thinking, “What for?  What do I have to say?  Who would listen to me?”  Then I start talking about something and my husband looks at me and says, “See?  You could blog about that.”

But I still keep thinking “Who would read it?  What do I write about?  When do I write?  I’m not an ‘expert’!  Blogs are are for experts to talk. ”  But then I find myself reading blogs and getting interested and going back for more.  Some of the most interesting ones aren’t written by “experts”.  They are just normal everyday people sharing information, talking out loud.  I figure I can do that.

My name is Terre Pruitt.  I am a Certified Nia White Belt and a Licensed Nia Teacher.  I am also a certified Personal Trainer with the National Council on Strength and Fitness, and a Certified PiYo Instructor.  I am interested in getting people to move their bodies and keeping them moving to ensure their present good quality of life or make it even better.  I also have some strong opinions on other things related to that.

So . . . .I intend to keep my blogs somewhat in the realm of health, wellness, fitness, and the like.  Although, since it is my blog, I get to make the rules as to the clarity of that realm.  In other words, I might stray from that area a bit, from time to time.  Also, since I have already blamed my husband for unleashing me on the world, and therefore somewhat introduced him, he might be chiming in from time to time.   Say . . . one day when I run out of something to say, like that will ever happen.

Until next time, My Lovelies . . . . .
