Season Of The Switch
I deeply appreciate the input of our readers, the support of our hardworking compatriots and our impressive technical assistance. Still, I’m your lupie scribe so the bulk of the newslog’s and ezine’s medical research, writing and site maintenance is my responsibility.
This year, along with setting up and refining our LNL pages, I’ve also been restructuring my offline life. I’ve been moving to a new town, in a new state of mind, while coping with a ferocious lupus flare and a cantankerous computer. Lately. I’ve been as frazzled as a cat with a litter of nine two-headed kittens.
Jillian, our ally at(the once famed but now defunct Everyday Warriors - please read Jillian Leslie - Immortal Warrior
) and publisher of our Butterfly NewsBytes (BNB) ezine is seriously ill right now and may also be moving soon. Must be the season of the switch, since our fellow Thriver Julie, webmaster of The Lupie Bin
, recently relocated. Her move riled her wolf, too. Right now, BNB is a mighty rocky row to hoe, with Jillian and me caught between my wolf and her hard place.
To ease the load on Jillian’s generous shoulders and balance the burden on mine, we’re suspending publication of new Butterfly NewsBytes issues for now. You can follow our BNB links, to read this year’s past issues and you’ll find related bits here at Lupus NewsLog. Thank you muchly for your patience and your support.
Rion - In Flight
Lupus Support and Survival
is the worthy website of Brenda Rion Sewell and Rion's Reflections
Life Thoughts and Healing Words, is her gift of love. Visiting her pages is like finding an oasis in the desert. This thoughtful and compassionate lupie is no longer with us but her family maintains her site so that we may share in the beauty of her spirit. Rejecting tragedy, she found triumph in her struggle - may we all be so blessed.
These weblog pages haven’t looked too active just lately but deep down in the pits of the Lupus NewsLog coalmine, this canary’s been working her tail feathers off. There’ve been twitchy site glitches to tweak (for one, posts don't always show up when published) and new Blogger.com tech changes to implement. Thankfully, I’m not the only bird working this wire.
With the technical talents of Jared, LNL’s web-wiz, our weblog’s pages are now more user-friendly. Chris has been cookin’ up a storm to blow the wolf away, with luscious lupie recipes on our WolfBytes
page. We also have new true life stories to share on our Thrivers
Each Thrivers’ story is hyperlinked in that page’s left side menu box, to open into its very own page. I’ve also made each link in our main Lupus NewsLog and Library
pages open into a new window, for your ease and convenience.
This summer, there will be more fine-tuning, with new research information and weblog pages added. Our LNL Library is growing too, with more great links to share. If you’d like to suggest a link, please email me the URL. Remember, your questions, suggestions and bright ideas are always appreciated and help keep this log rolling.
