After far too long struggling with the slowness of my WordPress link, I’ve finally got around to downloading the WordPress App.
No idea why it took me so long. The difference is striking. Typing this now, letters and words appear instantly instead of several seconds later – in effect, I was writing blind and trying to marry what was in my head with whatever eventually showed up on the screen.
The link was so slow that I couldn’t access my list of followed sites, which made managing them well-nigh impossible. Now I can whizz through them – just been unfollowing those who haven’t published in a year or more. The number of these surprised me, as did the higher number that haven’t posted for several months.
I also noticed many sites with no information about when they last posted. Does anyone know if such sites are disused? It seems sensible to unfollow redundant blogs and so make it easier to concentrate on active sites.
I haven’t been visiting as much as I should and would be happy to receive heads up and links to posts you think I might like. I well remember doing just that in the early days to build up my readership.
Ah, the boldness of youth!
What am I talking about? That was only three years ago … or was it four?
Ah, the forgetfulness of age! Listen, did I ever tell you about that time at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival when everybody went skinny-dipping?
Oh well … won’t hurt to hear it again, will it? You see, in all the excitement, nobody had thought to pack their cossies …
[That’s enough excitement for today, time for your Ovaltine … Ed.]
