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.
