It is no secret that I like quiet, uncluttered spaces, and this blog is no exception. Yet, as I began tending the seeds of my dreams I noticed that in simplifying this space I had not made it easy to for you to join me. Connections to other places you can find me, such as Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest were hidden. And with the ever-present threat that Pages will soon disappear from your Facebook feed (unless I pay for advertising, which I will not do), those who rely on updates on Facebook may soon lose that connecting point. Even worse, when I changed my website layout several years ago, I removed the option for readers to subscribe to posts via email. Oy!
I have spent the past two weeks correcting those blunders. And believe me when I say, I was not simply playing in the sandbox. It was work. My behind-the-scenes coding skills were stretched to the max, and I could not have done it without the help of wonderfully techie people who were generous to share their knowledge through tutorials and forum assistance. You’ll probably be quick to notice a styling issue that is not quite resolved, but I cannot stand the wait any longer.
It is time to invite you in.
If you are not already there, please hop over to my website and discover all the doors that have been opened to welcome you. In the upper right corner, you’ll see links to all the places you can find me and I invite you connect with me via your favorite social media choices. You’ll also see a link to send me an email if you ever wish to connect privately.
More importantly, if you scroll down to the bottom of this post (and every post) you’ll see an Email Invitation. With the changing world of social media, email is the most sure way we’ll stay connected. I invite you to subscribe to receive blog posts and my newsletter directly in your Inbox. It’s easy to do, it’s free, and if you change your mind you can unsubscribe at any time.
I realize by inviting you to subscribe, I am inviting myself into your email. I do not take this lightly. I will never take advantage of your email address. If you subscribe to Blog Posts you will simply receive my blog posts by email so you can be sure you won’t miss one. If you subscribe to the Newsletter you may not receive anything for quite some time. I am planning for the future with this option, hoping to some day send special messages of encouragement and announcements. Would you accept my invitation to subscribe to both?
If you are reading this via email, I know you’ve been with me for quite some time. I want to especially thank you for sticking with me all these years. If all goes as planned you will receive this post by email in its new, prettied-up form. (Here’s to hoping that everything works as it should.) While you will continue to receive blog posts as you always have, I did not want to presume that you would want to subscribe to the Newsletter as well. So I extend the invitation to you to hop over the my website and update your subscription preferences.
Thank you to all my friends and readers. You are very dear to me. God bless your weekend!
