This wasn’t the post I meant to write today but after getting the single, biggest weekend response to my post – Janome MyLock 744D – I had no choice.
First and foremost, apologies to my regulars. I know I’ve done a few strange posts in my time but the Janome one definitely takes the prize. You see, it was not really meant to be a post at all…
So what happened? As they say in the classics, it was a comedy of errors and started when I decided to sell my overlocker [sort of like a sewing machine but not] on Ebay. Being a first time seller, it never occurred to me that buyers might want to see what it looked like, so I didn’t attach a picture with the sales blurb. Imagine my embarrassment when two potential buyers messaged me asking for a picture. 😦
Then the thick plottened. When I tried to upload a picture after the fact, either my browser, or Ebay itself, chucked a wobbly and I simply couldn’t upload this all-important picture.
What was I to do? Being a resourceful blogger I quickly inserted the picture in a post and directed my Ebay buyers to my blog. Never, never, did I expect anyone else to bother looking at that un-post. I rarely post on a weekend because so few people read my blog on a weekend. I should have been safe. Instead, 51 people checked it out. I was flabbergasted as I had only directed 2… two… people to that picture. Where did everyone else come from?
I still don’t know what happened with that un-post, or why it received so many hits on a weekend but I’m kind of devastated that it did. Putting that post up took maybe 5 minutes at most, and that included taking the pic and resizing it. My ‘real’ posts take hours and involve much thought, editing and careful checking. My better posts get hits between 50 and 60 if I’m lucky.
What am I doing wrong?
Cheers from a very confused Meeks.
