I'm good, thank you, and I'm tickled to share some playthings with you from my recent holiday adventures:
Here's a birthday card with an encrusted butterfly I made using the same technique:
Editorial: Well That's a Fine Kettle of Fish
By now we all know about the Blogger issues with comment notifications no longer appearing in our inboxes, but has anyone noticed that we all now seem to be "no reply bloggers?" A "no-reply blogger" is a blogger who hasn't entered his/her email information in settings and that means their readers are unable to click on their underlined names in a comment to send an email reply in response to any questions.
I noticed this week that all of you who have left comments are now classified as "no reply bloggers" when I know some of you weren't before. I'm assuming this is another protection we have been given by Blogger thanks to GDPR even if we didn't request it. I know I shouldn't complain because it's a free service, but it would be so easy for them to send out a mass mailing to let us know when changes are made, why, and if we can override them.
Having said all that, my research is not scientific and I could be wrong. To test whether my suspicions are right or wrong, I would like to know what happens when you click on my name in any comment I leave on your blog. I'm way behind in my visits, so the next time I leave you a comment, when you click on my name a normal email box should open. I have set up my settings so that my email address should appear in the top line. Does it? Or on the address line does it say my name, followed by "email@example.com" for my address?
I hope I'm wrong and my email address appears as it should. I'll feel like a silly old fool, but I'm okay with that. If it doesn't appear, then my (and your) settings have been circumvented!
Sorry for the rant, but I enjoy the social aspects of blogging as much as I do sharing my cards and I'll be very sad if the new rules impact us innocents and reduce or prevent us from being able to easily connect with each other as we've been able to do for many years.
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
