For anyone who has been blogging for any length of time, there are certain occurrences which happen from time-to-time we find quite puzzling. There are no real explanations for these happenings - it is what it is. I will now refer to these phenomenons as Blog Physics.
For example, Two-Steps Back. I stepped away from my blog on Friday to take care of registering my vehicle. (By the way, I did survive it.) It was only one day, but by the next day, somehow or another, I was actually two days behind when it came to making my rounds and commenting. How does this happen? I just don't get it.
Then there is the Time Zone Scoop. This has happened to me on more than one occasion. I'm already set to write my post only to discover someone (usually Dufus) has posted something on the same subject that same day. Arrrggghhh. Even though I have readjusted my sleep pattern to wake well before the crack of dawn, I am still faced with this problem. To me, nothing is more frustrating than having to regroup under the power of just one cup of coffee.
Finally, the Disappearing Follower is another weirdness I cannot explain. A couple of times my followers have dropped off by as many as 60. Where in this world did these people go? I know there are times when I can't please everyone, but 60? What, is there some kind of conspiracy where everyone gets together and un-follows me at the same time? But, as quickly as they left , they all seem to return the next day. Beats me.
I'm sure you all have had similar experiences, at least I hope you have. Please tell me I'm not the only one cursed with such happenings. I'm curious to hear about your unexplained experiences, the ones you can only chock up to Blog Physics.
