Sorry I've been out of touch for a couple of weeks. I was trying to fix some issues with the blog and then I had a no good, very bad week. (Lots of fodder for future blog posts.)
So, the housekeeping. Turns out when you signed up to follow my blog, you were really just doing sort of an e-shout out to me. It was a web wave. It was a "Hey, Cathy, I read your blog." It was sort of the equivalent of the facebook 'like.' What it doesn't mean, evidently, is that Blogspot sends you notices when I post a new post. No, it does not. I had no idea. I thought all of you were getting a brief little email from Blogspot every time I posted saying "Hey Marian, Hey Cindy, Cathy has a new post so read it." Dang, following is a worthless (although appreciated) gesture.
So, now I will email you a notice when I post something. I will do what Blogspot has failed to do! My web person tells me there is also the option to sign up for an RSS, which will notify you of the postings. Some of you younguns may know about RSS but I didn't. My understanding is that RSS links are at the top of the blog page or on the url line or somewhere up there and are easy to activate on all browsers except Safari. If you use Safari and you want instructions, let me know and I'll email them to you. They're long.
Also, I removed any restrictions on commenting so if you had trouble commenting directly on the blog before, you should be able to now. I had been advised to have restrictions so all the wackos and spammers couldn't send comments but we'll see what happens, won't we?
Is it just me or is all this technical stuff just too damn technical?
An actual content-based blog post coming soon.
