Sunday Poser #104

Today’s question posed is: ‘How Often Do You Re-Share Posts?’

Re-sharing a post I previously wrote never appealed to me in the past.

Once when prompted to share one from a specific date I chose not to

participate. The reason for my decision was either I hadn’t written a

post on that particular date or I couldn’t figure out how to share the read.

Re-thinking the whole process now explained with a mere few steps this idea

could be quite beneficial.

To revisit some oldies and make grammatical corrections actually seems like fun.

For certain I’d laugh at my mistakes, compare the style of writing then and now

plus realize the amount of improvement which took place during my tenure thus

far on Blogosphere.

Random thoughts – pencil in a date then see what happens to same post using the

block editor, a goal for me in the near future.

A new journey to travel from one type of editor to another – wonder how this path

will appeal to me.

First, it’s imperative I learn the newer editor especially after reading a few posts

about the success some bloggers have experienced once they learned how to maneuver

the changeover.

It’s time to conquer fear of the unknown rather than dismiss those technology updates.

Think Positive!  You can do it!  Pray!

Today’s prompt:  ‘element

Are you a blogger who sees a prompt and writes with the flow of first thoughts that
come to mind?
Do you second guess, check for definitions and access the internet because you
wish to always perform at your best, a.k.a. ‘a perfectionist’?

My answer to the above questions posed is: “I do both”.

When I read this week’s Socs prompt my mind wandered to: “I seem to be operating
out of my element“.

What on earth does that statement mean I asked myself. A little bit of research and
wow a prime description of me throughout the past month.

I’m unhappy for many reasons and tired of the struggle to combat every
problem I’m forced to face with no on-the-scene assistance.

I wasn’t certain what in the world had come over me. In comparison to years of
determination I started to care less even to the point of self-sabotaging process
of WIP projects.

I suddenly had no desire to write other than friendly e-mails.
To replace writing I started listening to podcasts, tried out a few fancy
crochet stitches found on youTube channels and utilized my
Kindle Reader.

Alas, six weeks ago, I joined a group I felt would be beneficial to me.
I engaged in several scheduled hourly chats. All the participants in the
chats were nice and in the same predicament as I.

Then it happened infiltration of members who didn’t exactly belong
in the group and problems.

At that point I made the decision, ‘no thanks’ nope I don’t wish to share
nor discuss personal issues with any of them.

Although the admins did an excellent job of reporting the infiltrators I
unfollowed the group without giving any notice of reason.

Fortunate for me the female admin with whom I’d had several audio
chats (not scheduled chat sessions), quite concerned contacted me.

Who knew a virtual stranger from a different state within good old
USA would actually care.

Yes, amid the country’s present turmoil there still are nice individuals.

After some soul searching on my own, I’ve decided to see a counselor.

Sadly, the past month my blogging has been near non-existent. I did
and didn’t miss it, a conflict.

Today when I signed on I checked The Word Press Reader and wow
instantly found a new blogger to me who’d shared a whoopie pie recipe,
a dessert I baked for family Christmas parties thirty plus years.

A short scroll and oh how I wish I could print out the excellent blogging
advice post.

After some careful organization and learning a few of the tips I read
earlier I shall return.

To those who celebrate I wish y’all a ‘Happy Halloween’!!

Today’s prompt:  ‘back of the fridge’

To maintain a fridge requires organization, think >>>
Tall items at back of the fridge, smaller ones up front 😊

All food items come with small print dates of expiration – check
for them. Label storage containers, mark the date and contents.

Failure to follow either of the above good suggestions results in
stored foods transformed into one-of-a-kind refrigerated creations. 😢

today’s prompt:  portal

Is constant change bothersome to you?
My answer to that question in recent years is ‘yes’.

Do you ever take a hiatus from social media inclusive e-mails?
For my emotional health and to work on self-care I chose to
remain offline for a brief period.

Upon return I was overwhelmed to learn of all that transpired
during my absence.
An example, reason it’s imperative to continually keep track
of current events, was change of the Patient Portal which took
place at the medical facility where I’ve been a patient for
several years.

I had no prior knowledge of the change therefore when I
attempted to access my records I faced quite a dilemma.
The username and password were defunct.

There were directions to create a new account which when
followed didn’t exactly work. Thankfully direct contact with a
real person, not an automated menu, resolved the problem.
