What would you do if you suddenly found yourself without your phone or your computer?¬† If you are like most people I know, you would freak out.¬† Even if you don’t have a business to run, I am pretty sure you have become dependent on emails, googling, texting, shopping, etc.¬† When there is a snafu and something technical goes wrong, we feel totally helpless wondering when “they” will get the problem fixed.¬† “They” are only human and it takes time to figure out the problem and then correct it.¬† Hmmm, I wonder if computers fix computers!!¬† If that be the case, it should take no time at all to straighten out the system.¬† I guess I can compare this to my clients asking why their remodel project takes so long.¬† It all takes time and patience.
Last week I did what I do every Sunday, update Designers Circle and set up Constant Contact so that on Monday morning you all can open up your email and check out what is going on.¬† Unbeknownst to me, Constant Contact had issues, for lack of a better word.¬† I was shocked!¬† This is not supposed to happen.¬† The phone calls started coming in asking if I was OK.¬† How nice that some of you wait by your computer on Monday morning to read about your Design Community happenings.¬† I do want to emphasis that Designers Circle is a website that can be viewed anytime of the day or night, but I digress!
So Constant Contact did fix their issues by Wednesday, and everyone can rest easy for now . . . until the next glitch messes up our day.
I would like to thank everyone for supporting Designers Circle.
Have a very happy and fun Thanksgiving.
