Well it wasn’t quite that dire but the wonderful wizard behind the help desk chat over at WordPress.com saved me from hyperventilating and spending the rest of the day crying into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream – while also crying into a pint of something a bit more potent in my other hand.
Yes there is a little story –
Actually ‘the little stories’ about my crochet obsession is what inspired me to do what I did today. It was also all of your stories that fired my inspired madness too. I read all of your posts and it’s like looking into little windows of your lives – not in a creepy way! Many of you share so much more than just your crafts – which are amazing – and it makes me reflect on all of the things that I love or do or have experienced besides crochet.
I created Tanglewood Knots to become part of the yarn loving community. It is very important to me to keep it as is.
But there are so many more ‘threads’ that make up my life and I want to share those in a different venue. So I am now the proud owner of – drum roll please –
Which will be the home of all of my other stories about things I love. I will not be abandoning anyone here and will be posting at least 4 or 5 times a week as usual. Tapestry is going to be an eclectic blend of things like tarot reading, belly dancing, poetry, fantasy fiction, World of Warcraft, my unhealthy obsession with Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert, and anything else I feel like. It may cross over into R rated territory at times for language but nothing too vulgar.
I am still designing the site and I’m not sure exactly when it will be ready – hopefully tonight or tomorrow morning. If you would like to follow me on Tanglewood Tapestry I would be so happy to have you come along for the ride.
Oh yeah – the WordPress help person – So as I was messing around thinking that I was an elite website designer on Tanglewood Tapestry, I ended up completely messing up Tanglewood Knots – you may have noticed some technical difficulties earlier. I was going along trying to find a theme design that I liked but I had forgotten to switch to the new site. When I decided to take a break from setting up the new site I found Tanglewood Knots not looking anything at all like it was – I panicked, freaked out, and basically went through all 5 stages of grief in the span of about 10 minutes before I was able to find the “Live Chat” button for tech support.
Keep in mind that for whatever foolish reason I am not a contact support type person – I worry about being on hold, or having to try to explain something that I don’t even understand etc etc.
The wonderful unnamed person talked me down from my hysteria and suggested I just re-activate the theme I had been using and everything was all fixed! Yes it was a bit anticlimactic but I refuse to admit that I may have over-reacted at all. It was an outstanding experience and I will not hesitate to use the Live Chat again. They made it too easy and friendly – I should crochet them all some hats or scarves for Christmas. 😀
Thanks for reading!
