Well, I did it. I switched the email account attached to my WordPress. I just can’t deal with the headache that losing Windows Live Mail is causing me anymore. I had no idea that finding a replacement desktop email program would be such a flipping nightmare! I mean, I still have to have something for my mail, but anything I’m looking at just isn’t going to be easy to work with. Thanks, Microsoft! That’s exactly how I didn’t want to spend my Summer vacation!
I liked having Windows Live Mail handle everything. It meant I didn’t have to be online to go through and respond to comments. Because that’s a nice touch, blogging through email. I really like that WP offers that perk. Now I’ll be doing that through Gmail. And hey, if I’m on my phone, maybe I can use Google’s voice-to-text feature to respond, lol. That might be a kick. Because, you know doggone good and well I can’t type to save my life on a hand-held device of any kind.
I feel like for the last few years, every time I turn around another tech thing is breaking or shutting down. Oh well. At least now, I can focus a bit more on catching up with everyone in the blogosphere. I’ve been so consumed with trying to fix this that I’ve become lax here. Still have to find a replacement email solution before the end of the month, but I won’t feel the pressure, hopefully.
And I just remembered that I forgot (heh, how’s that for a line?!) to make Challah for tomorrow, so guess what I’m doing! I can comment while the dough rises. 😀
