Playing the Odds

I bet my life,
it’s not worth much,
against the knife
you tightly clutch.
Though in my heart
I fear we’ll part,
all in to win

      1. Well, I’ll tell ya what–I’ll be using less tags in future, even though the idea behind them (according to WP) is to drive more traffic to a blog when people type in a word of interest and it leads them to all manner of blogs writing about the topic. Apparently many of the tags I use routinely are magnets for Spammers–it makes me crazy and led to me deleting the last blog I had. I notice they’re not interested in tags like “Christian”, “faith”, “God” and “Jesus”–but mention food, houseplants, money, health…and you get spammers wanting to help you make more money, sell you vitamins/health products (including sexual ones), tell you gardening and travel tips, as well as advice on making your blog “better”…it’s relentless. So my tags are going be pretty generic from now on 🙂
