Yesterday, it took some time before I noticed when I commented on friends’ blogs here in WordPress, that the little box «Notify me of follow-up comments via email» was … ‘pre-ticked’, so to speak. At first, I didn’t think much about it … thought it was perhaps some little glitch in my browser, all of a sudden.
Then … in the afternoon, the weekly photo challenge was posted. This is the one time, in a week, when I really post a lot of comments … and I mean A LOT. First off, I posted my own photo link to the WP-blog, missed that ‘pre-ticked’ box so my email started filling up immediately. At the same time I got a message from friend Mags, telling me about this … issue, and I quickly went over to my subscription page and deleted them. Several hundred people post to this photo challenge, so it was unfortunate in particular that it happened on a Friday.
Later on, last night, I also noticed how the little, orange icon — the one that tells you about comments and such — changed appearance, but now, this morning, all seems to be back to normal.
It’s a very rainy morning here in Saint John, NB, and it seems it will stay that way today. I don’t have any high hopes of seeing or shooting the «super moon» tonight. I would, at least one time, be able to shoot the full moon with some kind of foreground … not just a big, white circle. I’ve gone out several times, when the moon rises, but it has always been too much daylight left. Like in this one, from September, last year … you can hardly see the moon! I’m sure the ones who are handy with Photoshop could have done something about it, but I’m not and besides, it wasn’t even shot in .RAW …Oh well, my time will come, I’m sure.
