Your blog goes down and you don’t notice right away. And then, when you do notice, you don’t have time to do anything about it.
I recently experienced two serious IT-issues. One involved the email for the company I work for. The other involved this blog. Keeping work email flowing struck me (right off) as being the most important IT issue to address. Fixing it in such a manner that the good folks I work with suffered the fewest inconveniences as possible involved a bit of night and weekend work and sort of drained any notions of I should get my blog fixed from me (that is, after I saw it had broken).
The blog is sort of back now. With a fresh, new look! No, no, no. Not fresh and new from a template standpoint… fresh and new from a there-are-no-old-entries-to-clutter-things-up standpoint! The benefits to you will be numerous. Go ahead. Do a search. Did you notice how fast the results came back? That’s benefit number one.
Benefit number two is that if you’ve ever had the desire to read What’s a Delmer Look Like from beginning to end, well, today’s the day to do it. A month ago this would have been quite the daunting task – and not just because my punctuation errors would have driven you insane. Now though, it’s not so bad.
Benefit three? Certainly there’s a benefit three. Two, after all doesn’t really fulfill the promise of “the benefits to you will be numerous” I made earlier.
Rats! I hate to start the first post of what is seemingly a new blog by lying to my readers. Well, while we mull over whether or not “two” is numerous, let’s press "publish” and see what happens.
(You know, I think if someone were to smack me in the face twice with a ping pong paddle, I’d consider that numerous. Two benefits are probably plenty, then.)
