A big hello to the few people who are still reading this blog. With the rise of social media, my blogging days have dipped and waned to the point of me thinking it is time to bid farewell to the blog.
But never fear, you can still find me all over the internet 😉
Sign up to my newsletter to get an email when I have a new release. I don’t spam and I don’t share addresses.
My website’s front page has my most recent releases and the What’s New section gives you the news.
My Facebook author page has ramblings about roses, books, cats and books.
Twitter has photos, general musings and I retweet what takes my fancy in a bomb and raid approach.
Instagram is my new fave thing and it has food, cat, roses, quirky things and travel photos.
I hope to see you on one of those platforms! Thanks for being part of the blog for the last ten years. It’s been fun!
And on that note, let’s send the blog off into the sunset.
All businesses are pushing us online to order things and it’s supposed to save everyone time. Hmm, I think it saves the business time and money but it sure as heck isn’t saving me time. It’s SUCKING my time away from me in hours at a time.
Yesterday, I planned 15 minutes to firm up a few things for my up-coming ski-trip. First off, the airlinechanged my flights and the website wouldn’t allow me to deal with it despite me completeing all this details. Then, I rang the skilodge and they insisted I book online…so I did, only their website wasn’t working and kept giving me an error message. I called them back and alerted them to it. Sigh. Only thing left to do was book the skipasses and that’s when I got into an infinite loop between agreements and the type of pass. So three phone calls later I was told, “Oh, yeah, the IT guys are working on that.” So those fifteen minutes took three hours!
Today, I checked the airline and they still have me on the wrong flights….I’m on hold as I write this blog.
Does anyone out there manage to book something in five minutes because if you do, please send me your top tips!
