Day 74 - How not to make a lightbulb

Posted by Alyssa Drake on 23 October, 2021 at 14:00

After I announced the Trick or Treating event in my reader group and newsletter, I was asked if I could make it available for people who didn't have (or chose not to use) Facebook. I tried, really I did, but me and technical things don't quite get along. After messing with my website for an hour, I'm no closer to figuring out how to schedule posts than I was when I started the project.

So, to those of you who couldn't participate, I am sorry. Perhaps next year I'll be a bit more tech savvy. As such, I only know how to make the pages invisible and have the links appear in my reader group (which was my original plan and the one I returned to now that I've proven I just don't have the know-how).

Sometimes it's best to just admit defeat and stop spinning your wheels. Unfortunately, for today, that means I've done nothing productive. When things like this occur, I think of Thomas Edison's quote, "I didn't fail. I just found 2,000 ways not to make a lightblub."

So, I didn't fail. I just discovered several ways not to schedule posts on my website. That counts, right?
