This is Crazy. Failure on Digg: Success on my Blog!

It's the strangest thing, but the item concerning the mansion for sale on EBay has had only 9 diggs.(Donna9970) I posted this story on my site, it has had 225 hits, and has caused me to be designated as one of the fastest growing blogs on WordPress. The developing saga is contained within the comments in the post below. Check it out!

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

It’s a mystery to me. I definitely don’t understand Digg, although I really like reading their material. I often post from them.

Thanks for visiting my site. Please come again.


Digg is a little strange in this regard. I’ve seen similar stuff where really good stories had 30 diggs and mediocre ones had 1235 diggs.

I think a lot of it has to do with personal taste and/or what stories people happen upon first.

That’s my guess anyway.


i have to admit Shirley that it’s nice, and a bargain. with a current bid of $33,734.00? it’s going to go i just know it!! and soon. if my money wasn’t tied up in a current investment, that would be mine (with the Lord’s Blessing).


Thank you, Helen. It’s all in fun, glad it worked out so well for you, and hope everybody understands that its just a light moment. I’m happy for your record number of views yesterday.


It’s on account of you being so cool, Shirley. This kind of fun is wholesome but allows us to forget for a moment the problems of the world. It allows us to be silly. Silly rocks. BTW, my blog had over 260 views yesterday, also. (The most ever).
