My new blog feature on my new site is proving to be popular. I have met new authors and love their responses to my set of questions. My love affair with my new site is proving a strong one. Scheduled posts actually work, I have an in-built reader to read blogs I follow, and a little comment box in the browser that lets me know there is a comment, a follow, or a reply. Time saving. All of it, time saving.
I will admit it was hard to work the buttons, and set up posts, and some things still need a tweek, or a 'how to', lesson, but overall, I am impressed. I love the fact I can visit other blogs on the same platform, and if I am short of time, or have no comment to make, I can click a star, and my face appears in a little box. This tells the site owner that I have been around. It certainly takes the guilt away from trying to get around blogs and not having time to log into comments. Some Blogger blogs take three goes to get the security codes right, and often I have moved on. Then popped back with more patience to try again, as I feel guilty not letting the blogger know I have been around. Blogging pressure is not something I wish to live with when I return to the UK. I will have other pressures to deal with. I will maintain this blog for as long as I am able, however, one day I will make a decision to add links, and not posts here. I am reluctant to give up the blog but when my posts do not upload properly on a schedule, or there is a sluggish half-hour with Blogger, I am often tempted. Time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy the authors I share with you.
One month until I return to the UK, and heading for the nearest library, grabbing a cuddle from my family, and enjoying treats I have missed for eight years. The countdown begins!
