A look into the mind of one of the most random, crazy people in all the land.

You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

So since it's my 24th birthday today (well, the 23rd), I figured I'd put a little post here.....and comment on something. So many of the anonymous comments I get are so random...."nice site", "thanks for the useful info", and they always have a link to a loan or casino or is that about? Does the link come with anyone who puts a comment up as anonymous or are they just groups looking to spam blogspots....if its the latter I'm going to get my sh*t kickers on and have a ball on their behinds. If its the former.......I didn't realize people could find my posts so easily.....I'll have to work better if I'm to hide from the "man." :-D.

Leaving on my birthday: This prayer from the Lutheran Prayerbook for one on their Birthday: "My Lord and my God, in You alone I have and move and have my being. Today I again mark the day of my birth and the beginning of my temporal life. In deep gratitude I also recall my spiritual birth in the waters of Holy Baptism as You reconciled me to Yourself and cleansed me of my sin. For all this I thank and praise You. This day reminds me, to Your praise, O God, my Creator, that I was not only born into this world, but also that You have bought me to a place where Your name is truly known, Your Word is taught in purity, and where, by Your means of grace, tru faith is kindled. I thank You for the benefits that You have showered upon me, both for my life here and for my life yet to come, from the day of my birth to this very hour. You have protected my life in ways I can hardly imagine, and You have provided my bodily needs of food, clothing, and shelter in rich measure. To this grace upon grace You have added your Word, through which You delive forgiveness, comfort, and peace for each day of my life. How wonderful are the works of Your hands, O Lord, and Your mercy rich beyond measure. Let me ever be mindful of my sinful beginning and my well-deserved punishment. But you have sought me out, the lost sheep, You have redeemed me, sanctified me, comforted me, governed me, and preserved me in my calling. Daily grant me forgiveness of sins as well as steadfastness in saving faith al the days You have prepared in advanced for me, that I may serve you in true faith. In Jesus' (+) name I pray. Amen."

Now with that I leave and hit the sack.....keeping up with high school kids is tough for an old guy like me :-D.

No, the links do not come with anyone who post as anonymous. My suggestion is to go to "Settings" click on "Comments", scroll down to where it says, "show word verification for comments" and click on "yes". You can also use the "enable comment moderation" (which is right below "show verification"). If you click on "yes" it will give you a place to type in your email. Then scroll down and click "save settings" and publish the page. Note: if you use "enable comment moderation" then the replies will be sent to your email, and you have to choose to "accept" them before they show up on your site. "Show word verification" should take care of the spam all by itself though, if you don't want to mess with the "comment moderation".

Hope this helps and happy birthday!

Hi Chris,

If you're asking about adding links to the sidebar, just put:

*h2 class="sidebar-title"*Links*/h2*

Wherever you want it to appear (you can use any title you want, it doesn't have to be "links").

And then list your links:
*li**a href=""*link1*/a**/li*
*li**a href=""*link2*/a**/li*

Note: wherever I have "*" it should be < and >. Blogger just wouldn't let me post like that.

The "links" will not be in cursive, like "archives" and "previous" post, because it looks like they used an image for those. So if you want it uniform you're probably going to have to replace the image with something else, either another image or font command.
