Finding The Blogosphere Part 2



When last we left our intrepid band of adventurers, they were getting ready to enter the Emerald City in search of the Great and Powerful Blogosphere…


Betsy:             Wow. Everyone in this city is…green.

Coffee:            It ain’t easy.

Muse:              And they’re all singing. I want to sing too!

Betsy:             No. We have to find the Great and Powerful Blogosphere.

Coffee:            Maybe we should follow the sign that says “This Way to the Great and Powerful Blogosphere.”

Betsy:             Shut up.

*all three creep through city, following signs* *enter a room* *stop short at sight of giant monster*

Monster:        What do you waaaaannnnnttttt!!!

Muse:              I want to know who does your makeup! You are like totally goth!

Betsy:             Muse, please. Monster, we’re looking for the Great and Powerful Blogosphere.

Monster:        Blooogggooooosphere? I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Coffee:            Hey, there’s something behind this curtain.

Monster:        Pay no attention to the machinations behind the curtain.

Betsy:             *darts forward* *pulls down curtain* Blogosphere! It IS you.

Blogosphere: *sigh* Yeah. 

Betsy:             Well why in the hell have you been avoiding me? Why have you turned your back on me?

Blogosphere: You turned your back on me first.

Coffee:             Told you.

Betsy:             I have not turned my back on you. When did I turn my back on you?

Blogosphere: Hey, you don’t have time for me? I don’t have time for you either.
Outta sight, outta mind.

Betsy:             But I had to get my book finished. I had to move on with my life. YOU told me to do that!

Blogosphere: Well, I didn’t mean you should ignore me. You think I care about your life? If you’re not interacting with me, you do not exist.

Muse:              Now that’s not fair, Bloggie, honey. She was spending some quality time with me. BFF, you know?

Blogosphere: *shrug*

Betsy:             *stares, disillusioned* I get it now. You…you’re all tricks and magic but…but there’s nothing of substance to you. *eyes fill with tears* *lip quivers* I just want to write a good blog. But if I’m not following you around like a sheep you don’t want to have anything to do with me. *sob*

Muse:              *puts hand on Betsy’s shoulder* Hey, I’m a freaking goddess, I don’t care what Bloggie says, I’m telling you that you have the creativity.

Coffee:             *dribbles on Betsy’s foot” And I’m a freaking beverage. I’m telling you that you have the caffeine.

Betsy:              *turns to hug Muse and Coffee* Thanks, guys. I’m just going to go on write the best darn blog I can. And piffle on the Blogosphere anyway!

Coffee:             Piffle?

Blogosphere: *heavy sigh* Oh, all right. I’ll come visit you again – I promise. Now get out of here. Put on these ruby slippers and click them together three times while saying “there’s no place like my homepage”.

Betsy:             The ruby slippers are diabetic sneakers?

Blogosphere: Go. I have some more smoke and mirrors to take care of before the next celebrity scandal hits.

Betsy:             *looks at Muse and Coffee* Ready?

*Muse and Coffee nod*

Betsy:             *takes deep breath* There’s no place like my homepage. *click* There’s no place like my homepage. *click* There’s no place like my homepage. *click*

whirl whirl whirl whirl

Muse:              Hey, I think we’re back.

Betsy:             We are! But is the Blogosphere here too?

Blogosphere: Yo.

Betsy:             Yay! Now I can post with gay abandon!

Blogosphere: Great. Please put on something about cats.

Betsy:             Okay!

Blogosphere: I was being sarcastic.

Betsy:             Oh.

Coffee:            I’m outta here. My beans and I need some alone time.

Muse:             I need a nap.

Betsy:            I’m so glad things are back to normal!



  1. I love your conversation blogs. Great big bunches! 🙂 Diabetic sneakers. Now I know what I am getting you for your birthday – where is my glue gun???

    I was thinking that you’ve been quiet for a while (at least on Facebook), so I found this blog. Writing anything new?

    • Betsy Horvath says

      @Valerie Watts Eichlin: Hi, Val! It’s been CRAZY! LOL But I am finishing up a book I’ve been working on, and plotting out another. Nora Roberts had better watch out! Until I get sidetracked and…oh! Shiny!
