I know that when I first decided to stop sending my iv's by email and posting them to my blog instead, it was met with reactions all across the spectrum from FINALLY! to RATS! Since then, I've had more and more people thank me for blogging instead of sending the email iv's. To me, there are huge benefits to posting to the blog. First it's so easy and quick, and it's done in one step. I don't have to reformat the iv to put it out in the online archives as a web page. But one big advantage is that I can put pictures on the blog, whereas with the email system I had to use, I could not include pictures - it was plain text only. And with the arrival of our grandson Drew, being able to put pictures out has been great fun! And I know that many like seeing the pictures, which are now out there for return visits to the blog. According to one means of counting visits to my blog, there have been over 20,000 visits to blog.ivman.com since Feb. 14. Now, of course, return visits are counted as individual visits, but still, I'm encouraged and humbled. As more and more people are remembering on their own or through rss feeds to check my blog, the number of those signed up for email notifications has dropped. So this is all good.
Working on computers all day this summer is enjoyable, and helping people with their computer woes is even more enjoyable. I must admit, though, that sometimes it's more than a little frustrating to try to figure out some of the cryptic error messages that pop up. Today's iv is entirely pictorial - funny computer error messages. I'm sure that some or even all of these are Photoshopped or whatever, but they are humorous!
