RELAX – it’s over now

Okay, blog subscribers, you can relax.  You will no longer be getting blog updates of old emails.  The situation has been resolved, and it is over.  Here’s hoping it wasn’t too awful for you.  As Liz pointed out, it gave her an opportunity to re-read my riveting post on baking potatoes.  So.  That aside, it’s new posts only from here on out!  Happy Sunday … looks nice out there today.

NOBODY FREAK OUT

Okay, first, nobody freak out.  I know if you are a subscriber, you’ve gotten a bunch of emails (and I’m setting you up to get a whole bunch more).  Sorry.  Spam from me is just one of the prices you pay to subscribe to this (sadly) neglected blog.

If you’re interested, I wanted to start posting again (and hopefully growing an audience) but then I started wondering if I may have been indiscreet in the past with details that would lead strangers to, for example, know where I live.  So I had this idea that I would private everything and review and then repost.  But I have over 500 posts!  That was going to take a long time.

I am unimpressed by WordPress automatically emailing all my subscribers when I’m screwing around with administrative stuff.

Of course, I didn’t realize that until I had already started.  Sigh.  And then the dates got messed up on some stuff.  Double sigh.  So … you’re going to get a lot more annoying emails from WordPress on my behalf … but hopefully you’ll soon be getting posting emails from me!

hurricane blogging

Hey there. It’s been a while, I know. Work has been crazy, and my weekends have been packed. But I’ll be in all weekend because, well, there’s a hurricane out there or something, so I’m planning on writing and queueing up some posts. First, though, I think I need a nap. So, for the meanwhile, I leave with you this tweet that made me laugh:

I’m home!

I’m home from my trip to Italy!

on vacation!

I’m on vacation until March 20! I’ll tell you all about it when I’m home. :)

Blog Maintenance: Travel Page

I created a “Travel” page for the blog! I’ve been a lot of places, and I have a lot of posts about those places … but I didn’t think that clicking on “travel” in the categories sidebar was particularly helpful.  This page should provide a better place to browse the travel archives.  Visit it by clicking on the word “Travel” in the top bar!

Happy New Year!

Welcome, 2011!  I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start!

WordPress has challenged bloggers to blog every day (or every week) in 2011, and I’ve decided to accept that challenge.  Here’s to 365 posts from me!

NB: I queued this post up to publish on January 1, 2011, but I neglected to hit “schedule” … and thus it wasn’t actually posted until January 2.  However, I’m backdating it so as to adhere to the spirit of the challenge, if not the letter.  Here’s to 365 posts on time from me!
