2 of 31 - SOLSC 2019
A few sips into my cup of tea, laptop open on the kitchen table, and I'm ready to setup the URLs for the new Slicers Kathleen sent to me for my Welcome Wagon folks. I can feel the smile on my face as I think about these folks who are entering this community, this experience for the very first time. I love getting to be a part of ensuring they have comment love each and every day. (In some ways year two can be harder because your comment love isn't guaranteed, but that's another train of thoughts.)
Fingers poised above the keys, I pause.
I stare at the wall, trying to think.
I am obviously out of my routine as I can't remember the tool I use to keep track of the blogs I want to read. I can't even think of the last time I was in the habit of reading those blogs!
I am not sure what I feel. Do I feel sad? Or do I feel I am not on top of my game by letting something slide by? If I haven't missed them, is that part of my life that used to be routine part of another season of life?
As the emotions swirl I struggle to bring my focus back to the challenge at hand - figuring out where I keep blog URLs. I know the system works for me. I know I have a section for each year of folks in my Welcome Wagon group. I know I could navigate to each URL in another manner, but I am really not a fan of reinventing the wheel and this has worked for me year after year.
"blog lists" <enter> goes into my Google search bar.
Weebly is the first hit. It sounds familiar, but I don't that is it.
"RSS" shows up somewhere on my screen and tickles some neurons.
"rss feed app" <enter>
A 'Top 10 Best RSS Reader' link is first.
Feedly! That's it!
Ugh! What's my password.
