Technology – don’t you just love it? When I launched into the social media world three and half years ago my first love and my main ambition was to nuture this blog, to write posts, to connect with quilty bloggers around the world – contributing, commenting and responding – to become part of the community. Writing my blog posts, sharing what’s going on, in and out of my sewing room, and discovering so much through connecting with other bloggers continues to be immensely satisfying. Thank you to those of you who follow me here and on other platforms 🙂 This community is an important part of my life.
Unfortunately there seem to be some gremlins in my technology 😦 I was unwell at the start of this week so didn’t check my emails for 36 hours or so. When I did check in I was surprised to find very few notifications from the bloggers I follow. Then it dawned on me that actually those notifications have been dwindling over the past week or more. That made me sad and anxious realising I was missing regular contact with the lovely, informative, inspirational bloggers I have come to know over the past years.
And now I’m wondering if notifications are being received by people who follow my blog? I try not to get caught in the numbers game but I’ve taken a look at my stats page and there is a decrease in the number of visitors to my blog. I’d be very grateful if you would let me know in the comments below if you have been notified via email or other means of my recent blog posts – thank you.
I do feel rather bereft and very unsettled as this goes on. I’ve been in touch with the WordPress helpdesk a couple of times and run checks on my email address, all to no avail.
I know in the grand scheme of things this may not seem a major issue BUT I am actually feeling like I am loosing touch with friends and that’s just not good. My apologies to those of you whose blogs I follow – I’ve unwittingly failed to interact with many of you over the past couple of weeks. I shall try and reconnect by visiting your pages directly but this I fear will be a slow process …
