THE SUNDAY POST #103

THE SUNDAY POST
NUMBER ONE HUNDRED AND THREE

THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly wrap-up feature hosted by Kimba at the CAFFEINATED BOOK REVIEWER.

There was not much on the blog because I was trying to catch up on my back blog hopping and commenting.

My newest Kindle tablet died. Just like the first one it went blank and will not reboot. This is a travesty for my blogging because my physical problems have been full force lately and I had been doing a lot of my job work on my Kindle as well. I cannot sit in a position to work on my laptop for very long at this time, Ugh, I will have to buy a new one and I don't know how long it will take to get here.

Anyway, I got on the Manchild's computer after he went to bed and started this post. When I went to copy paste the top part of the draft from last week's Sunday Post I saw the horrifying mixed font. It does not look like that on the Kindle. I went and looked and there is no font differentiation in the code to take out, the only way to fix it is to change the font from the editing bar and then go in and remove that font direction from the html. I don't even want to know how many posts are affected. I am devastated. I am hoping that it wasn't that way on any of my book tour posts. Now I know what Cait meant when I changed the font a while ago and she said it was a little difficult to read. That font was atrocious. I don't even want to think about how long it was in use. It did not look all that different from what the font is right now on my Kindle. I am crushingly embarrassed. I had no idea fonts could show up as two totally different things between a computer and an adroid device.

All of my images were on the Kindle, and both of the photo and graphics editing apps I use are not computer friendly, so I am ot going to be able to do much. Thank goodness I still have my old grey first generation Kindle ereader, so I can read the ARCs that are due for blog tour reviews. I don;t know how much I will be around because I feel like I am in a big black blogging hole right now. I just want to cry. I was saving for the largest HD Kindle tablet so I could start watching shows again, I was sure it would go on sale at Christmas, but it was the only one that did not. Now with having to buy another cheaper one I guess I will have to either put that on hold, or give up buying two new book shelves. There is a "joke" on the Kindle community forums that the tablets are programmed to self destruct after two years. I am beginning to think that is true.


Kirsten from METAPHORS AND MOONLIGHT asked if POV affects how you see a story play out in your head: HERE. I had not paid that much attention to it before, so it got me thinking.

Annemieke from A DANCE WITH BOOKS did the  GOODREADS TAG. You might want to do it, too.


I don't know. At this point I am so embarrassed that my blog looked the way it did, for as long as it did, I don't know if I want to blog anymore. I want to cry when I think of how much time it is going t to take to go back and fix all of that front.

I will still continue with all of my back blog visiting and commenting when I can. I hope you will understand. 


Ends 3/20/17

If you can use it for purchasing US ebooks, it is international.
Here's to a better week...
