The previous mail was a mistake.
Sorry about that.
I’m sure some of you must have thought who is this guy? Not surprisingly since I’ve been quiet for a few years.
A few years ago I had a severe case of pneumonia. I don’t want to dwell on it, but let’s just say it’s no laughing matter. I eventually recovered, but even now, after all this time, I still feel the effects in the form of a lack of energy. Although, that too is getting better. Slowly, very slowly.
I have been writing, on and off, but as I have said to several of you who have emailed me, nothing is fit for human consumption yet.
One of the things that needed attention, after years of neglect, was my website. A lot of technical issues needed to be resolved. E.g., some plugins stopped working after an upgrade of WordPress and I needed to find an alternative. That’s just one example, but there were dozens of little things that needed updating or mending. I’ve been quietly working on my website behind the scenes for some weeks now.
I’m also thinking about the content. And here is where it went wrong. I’m planning a section for readers who want to help my books gain more visibility. From a handful of tips it grew into something far more complicated, so I’ll have to split the material over several pages.
WordPress makes a distinction between posts and pages. This is a post, pages are more permanent fixtures of a website. When you’re subscribed to my website you receive an email whenever I post something. Not when I add pages. That’s how it should be.
My WordPress skills are a bit rusty it seems, because, accidentally, I put some text meant for this page into a post.
And that’s why you got a somewhat strange email.
Maybe this is a good time to reevaluate if you still want to receive these mails. Interests change. A million things have happened. Things are different now. I understand. No hard feelings. If you want to unsubscribe, the link is at the bottom of each mail.
If, on the other hand, you still want to receive these mails, be warned that the next one won’t take years.
