Anyone who uses a computer regularly knows the unique frustration of competing with an inanimate object. Reason tells us that computers don’t think, but reality suggests they have a mind of their own. When the internet is added to the mix everything — and nothing — changes. I know that’s contradictory, but it’s true.
Like computers, cyberspace can be intriguing, helpful and annoying, all at the same time . Its opportunities are limitless but its frustrations can be mind-numbing. Various sites have become blogging hosts which open new opportunities for writers. A blog becomes a communication tool allowing access to a world-wide audience. At least it does when everything works right. When things mysteriously stop working it can drive you crazy.
Such seems to be the case for FinePrint Literary Management agent Janet Reid. I follow her blog regularly, but recently haven’t been able to access it. I missed my daily dose of her knowledge and wit. After a little searching I discovered her blog has moved. The explanation is in her own words:
“My other blog is on the injured reserved list for unknown reasons. Blogger doesn’t seem to think anything is wrong; none of my other blogs are affected, and I’ve reached the limit of my tolerance for trying to figure out what’s wrong. This is the new blog.” — Janet Reid
So here’s a “heads up” for you to update your links and bookmarks. If you’re hunting for Janet she’s now located at http://jetreidliterary2.blogspot.com/
