Well… it’s been a month since my iMac died. My normally overflowing inbox is now officially in shambles and I’m missing my old blog-visitation routine. Compared to the iMac, this particular iPad-generated post has taken about a billion times longer to complete. And the constant iPad screen finger-pointing/-swiping/-pinching has led to occasionally unfortunate and unintentional deletions :-/

Yep, blogging via anything less than a full-size computer/laptop is definitely the tedious way to go. But for now, this iPad is all I’ve got. And besides, this iMac-less predicament won’t last forever. So now’s my chance to meet the challenge!

AΒ handful of “ah ha” iPad moments have certainlyΒ saved my sanity. But without you,Β I’d have surely lost heartΒ by now!

Yup, the blogging life can be like a box of chocolatesβ€”with all sorts of emotions brewing behind the scenes. It’s no good to keep emotions bottled-up, though. Nor is blogging whilst under their influenceΒ recommended. But utilizing the growing selection of WordPress online emoticonsΒ looks like a fun form of digital expression! Now justΒ imagine how fun it would be, if these virtual knitting emoticonsβ€”by Megan & Amy at PostStitchβ€”were really REAL? I’d knitterallyΒ β™₯ ❀ β™₯ that! πŸ˜€
