Word Press Photo Challenge: Achievement – Zoom Zoom

This isn't Alex, and yes, I really did this, but next to last place is not an achievement I'm proud of.

This isn’t Alex,or me, but yes, I really did this.  However, last place is not my proud achievement.

I achieved something today.  I overcame an annoyance that, for many months, demolished my joy in blogging.  To you bucket list – high achievers, I hope this post won’t destroy what little respect you might have for me when you see how little it takes to make me feel successful.  To Alex Gustafson thank you for showing me the way to success.

This may not look annoying. It didn’t to Alex.  But, believe me, it was!

 

So the problem was, my font got too big for its britches on my dashboard.  It took a scroll just to see my stats!

When it came time to post, I felt dyslectic trying to read the names of my former posts.  Even Ed—————- …it was on two lines!  Alex said everything looked normal to him.  Hmmmm… Right…

“Try adjusting the settings on your web browser,” he told me, and gave me a link.  That’s link, not wink!   https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/96810?hl=en

So I gave it a try.

Don’t you wish that the buttons they tell you to select had a big sign on them like this???  At any rate, I felt very intelligent that I was able to find all the buttons in the article.  And it worked.  My browser was the culprit all along, and now I know how to fix it if poltergeists every come in and switch it again!

So what underwhelming achievement have you accomplished recently?  Make me feel better, and I won’t tell you the struggle I had putting a border (simple, simple) on this last bit of media.  Poltergeists, I tell you!  🙂

Wait for it!  Wait ....  She's coming...  Keep waiting...

  1. I’m so incredibly ‘untechnical’ it ridiculous. I’m sure there’s a lot of pages in my settings on WP and loads of fancy tricks on my laptop I have no idea exist! I think you’ve done very well.

        • That’s certainly part of it. Your personality shines through without your blog being all about you. You tell interesting facts and weave stories around them, and have a great sense of humor. You are dependable, your pictures are great. Let’s see, I could say more, but… How’s your head this morning? It should be popping out of its seams just a tad bit. 🙂 🙂

  2. Isn’t it great to belong to a community that understand and help? It would have annoyed me too – and in fact I’ve just recently learnt how to do exactly that!

  3. It’s good that you didn’t throw your laptop by the window… but on the other side… Why there’s no ‘reset button’ the same way as it is in smart phone for example ?

    • I guess not. I looked for one because somewhere along the way I must have pressed zoom +++++++ But since I didn’t know it, I didn’t know how to correct it. On the other hand, I’m still thinking poltergeist.
