We all enter new phases of our lives as the years pass us by. Some of those phases involve major changes that shatter the world around us. Others are exciting ventures into new realms.
I am currently in one of those new realms where I’m trying to learn, particularly about how the mechanics of this blog site work. If you haven’t set up a site through WordPress then you may not be aware of all the plugins that are available. That’s a good thing, but be careful.
I wanted to have a subscription option to the blog for all of you who want to receive updates. There are numerous options available. One of those prompted me with a list of options and I unfortunately clicked the wrong one! If you received an email from me with my Facebook photo asking you to join me… well, you were an unfortunate recipient. If you haven’t clicked on it, then you can just delete it.
I believe the new email box on the right panel of the main blog works better and is less intrusive. If you’re on a mobile device, I believe it appears at the bottom of all the posts. I’m still working all of this out, and after three hours today troubleshooting, at least I think it’s mostly under control.
If you clicked that other link from the email, it’s through a plugin that is behaving oddly and so I’m not planning on continuing with it at this point. If you already did so and were accepted, please consider hitting up my main site and adding your email to the newer Subscribe button, and then tell that other service that you unsubscribe. If you have any issues, please do let me know.
Each step is an opportunity to learn. I think it’s fair to say I will face other challenges here. I thank you for your patience, and for the occasional laugh at the absurdity of it all. Laughter is, after all, the best medicine, and I certainly don’t intend to be a pill. 😉
