The Warnings

I think I have received about a half dozen warnings via email over the past week or so.

They are all tied into the blog and tell me that certain plug-ins aren’t active anymore and if I don’t make adjustments I won’t be able to track information or take advantage of XYZ.

I get tired of being warned because the language in said warnings chaps my hide. Could be that I am irked about other things and thin-skinned now or that their marketing language is weak.

A softer message would probably go over better with me. I see value in being notified that some changes are impacting the functionality of the blog.

But I also recognize some of those changes are intentional so sending me email after email declaration of the sky falling isn’t useful.

Reminds me of a couple of people who wrote me to ask me to update links on posts that are more than 10 years old.

Something about the manner in which I was approached ruffled my feathers so I took the posts down.

Maybe it is just me.

Maybe I am getting cranky and ornery in my old age or maybe it is something else.

Don’t you just love decisive stances where we take a position of maybe.

    That’s been irking me lately as well. All the messages about updating, upgrading, “promoting” them elsewhere… ugh! I understand that many of these things are free, but I don’t need to be badgered weekly, which these days seems to be the updating schedule.
