Writing my blog has always been something I have enjoyed. Yes it takes a certain amount of time and yes it requires me to either take copious notes during the day or rely on an aging memory, but it still brings a certain level of satisfaction.
Until I started to prep for this adventure.
It all began with the simplest of tasks; create the first page of our latest adventure. I’ve done this a number of times so it SHOULD be a nap-time accomplishment. Nope.
Typically it starts a day or three ahead of our departure which allows me to get the first page in place giving insightful tidbits of the journey ahead. And that much I was able to put in place. The addition of a little map of our campaign is when my troubles began to manifest themselves. No matter what I tried to do, in the fashion I had done so MANY times before, nothing would work. To add salt to the wound, I quickly discovered that adding any additional pages had also become an impossible task.
It’s Wednesday, we’re leaving on Saturday, it’s after hours (from a website support perspective) and I’m scrambling. Ok…slow down…take a breath and talk with someone tomorrow.
Well…after 2 more days of email tech-support (online chat service was out of commission) I was still struggling. I like to think of myself as being at least a little tech-savvy, but I was missing something either very fundamental or Way above my pay-grade. No success.
Our day of departure has now arrived and we’re going through everything at home making sure we don’t forget anything (which I STILL managed to do) and I looked at my email one last time. Another email from tech-support was there and YES they have fixed everything. At least so they lead me to believe.
The first gallery (simply a small map of our trip) is now updated (successfully!!) We shall see what happens with this post. If all goes well then perhaps anxiety will have been averted.
