Yesterday I had a Blog Attack. And don’t tell me you’ve never had one…even a little one. Attacks can come without any warning. There really are no symptoms. Everything is running smoothly with your blog. You are having fun. You are meeting new friends. You are reading some great blogs and getting lots of good ideas about….well just about everything. And you really feel you have great blogability and in time will become a wonderful blogster. You love the blogamania and love being a blogomaniac. You have studied the blogology of others and feel rather smug about your blogmanship.
And then the blogiosis hits and you feel like committing blogacide.
I recently found Every Day Another Story. I love it because there are many great songs to listen to and played in the style I like. I noticed there was a little audio player to click to hear the music. I really wanted that little player as I have linked my songs. I read and read and looked and looked and tried and tried and cried and cried. I could not figure out how to put the little player in my blog. I really did spend hours and hours and hours trying this and trying that. I got so frustrated and felt I was just going to give up blogging. Singing and silly songs are so much a part of me. I like saying what I want to say with a song. And the player would make it so much nicer.
I finally emailed a friend on the other side of the world who is always kind enough to me. He is one of those geeky friends that everyone who is computer illiterate should have. I awoke this morning to find an email with the exact instructions I needed. I was so close to doing it right, but even one little [ ] can make a difference.
I have gone back and put the little player on each of my song pages. I don’t think anybody is going to go back and listen to them. But you might just go back and verify that the player is there. And there will be more songs now that I can get the player in.
Many hugs to my friend for helping me.
