Another one of those mornings…
If I have a routine, it is to do the daily domestic stuff, then grab a large mug of black coffee and sit down to read the latest posts from the bloggers I follow.
For quite few months, I’ve been using Bloglovin and generally been really happy. It’s had moments, but never anything too annoying and I could be wrong, but I get the feeling that there are real people behind it, rather than some faceless mega-corp.
But this morning, it wanted me to think that no one on my really quite long list, had written a word.
Now, call me a sceptic, but I just didn’t believe that.
I had a helpful exchange of tweets with Bloglovin and did at one point think it was better, but I was jumping the gun.
So, being a practical sort of woman, I decided to add some of the blog list to the Reader on WordPress. And lo, there were several posts sitting in the blogosphere, just waiting to be liberated.
I’m not giving up on Bloglovin, I like it and hope they get sorted soon, but as a backup, I now have my favourite blogs all added to the WordPress reader.
While all this has been going on, I’ve been keeping calm, listening to a download from iTunes I bought a few weeks ago. It’s Celtic Harp music, by Aryeh Frankfurter. When I’m writing, sewing or generally trying to switch off, I’ve found that simple harp music seems to touch the right spot.
This recording has just the right balance for mornings like this one. Gentle and uplifting.
