In Which I Experience Some Serious Disappointment One of my favorite websites has changed how they post things. They used to post images and every Sunday (or sometimes Monday) I would go to the site and read the postcards. I often found them amusing. More often I found them intriguing. Occasionally I found them heartbreaking. Today I went to the site and there it was . . . a video montage. Okay. Nice idea but for me it was not as effective. The video moved from one to the next not allowing me the time I wanted to sit with each secret. There was even one that went by before I could finish reading it (thanks to the vertigo slowing me down!) and that added to my frustration. But what makes this so disappointing for me is that this is apparently how they will be doing it from now on. The site says to come back next week for the next video. *sigh* Hopefully I am not alone in not liking the new format. Hopefully they will return to the old way. Because frankly . . . I would have wanted to sit longer with the first card/secret they showed. I needed to sit with it. But it was gone before I could experience the card fully and after four or five more I just shut down the window.
