I’m Back

Standard

My six foot almost-five inches grandson– bless his heart
The Happiness Engineers

For two months I’ve been attempting to get back to writing in my blog.  It’s been a conundrum.  I changed passwords over and over and over again. But every time I tried to open my WordPress site to write a new post — I was refused.  I almost felt like that little dialogue box and I were at war — I no sooner lifted my hands off the keys then it would shake back and forth.  No! No! No!.

Tonight my grandson came to help.  He’s one of these ‘dudes’ that can type text with his thumbs without looking — you know that kind. God love him, he’s keeping ahead of the junior high kids he works with at his church (and that’s no easy task.)  But even he couldn’t figure out how I’d been locked out of my domain, and couldn’t get back to post.

But then a miracle happened. At 10:32pm I sat down to close  my computer, and thought I’d just check my emails for the day. I found a message from the “Happiness Engineer” (that’s what those WordPress geeks call themselves) to say they’d resolved my issue and I could  sign in.

I did! And I’m back!

(Those crazy two lines at the top –” my six foot… and Happiness engi…–“? I hit a ‘read more’ tag on top and didn’t know how to get rid of it.  You’ll probably get a lot of this from a grandma trying to catch up to her grandkids.)

 

 

 

Password denied again!

Standard

Tonight I’m just warming up my blog with “writers’ bloc.”  Can you believe it took me forty-three minutes to think of a password complicated enough for WordPress to let me in? (They wouldn’t accept the one I designed last week.) Once I finished reading three websites on how to do it, all the ideas of writing about writing have left my mind.  Did you know that computers can roll through thousands of combinations of words and letters in the blink of an eye to figure out my secrets?  So why don’t I just use a password like Ilovelucy?

I’ve promised myself that I’ll write at least one blog a week– about anything that fancies my mind at ten fifteen at night.  Hopefully there’ll be more content — hopefully I won’t have been writing pages of password ideas first.

But I do still have one sharp, concise bit of information. My eleventh book, first historical novel and the product of almost ten years of serious research (I can write about serious things) will be coming out within six months. Can you wait that long? (I can’t!)

You’ll love this woman I’ve written about– a medical doctor, a writer, an advocate for women, courageous and persistent– investigating and exposing ‘trafficking’ in the 19th century.  Her name is Katharine Bushnell — Katie to me.

See you next week!
