Two words we should eliminate from our vocabulary are ALWAYS and NEVER. What we say or feel today may change tomorrow. These words have such a “finality” to them. So I am not going to use these words…at least not now, ha
I have been thinking and praying for some time as to whether or not to continue podcasting and posting them to my website, dearlanadee.com. It costs money. And let’s face it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see my stats ( number of those who stop by and listen). The numbers do not warrant the expenditure.
I have always said if I could make a difference in even a few lives it has been worth it. But according to MY calculations, even those “few” have dwindled. LIFE has made it even harder for those faithful to my podcast, to listen or visit on my website. I totally understand.
So this is what I plan to do:
1. I am going to stop posting to the dearlanadee.com website. after this letter. So if there is anything, any previous podcast you haven’t heard or want to download, NOW is the time to do that. The website will disappear at the beginning of September.
2. I hope to continue to post my thoughts, songs, AND podcasts on Facebook. Remember, if you are not my “friend” on facebook It is simply a matter of requesting me to add you as a friend. Of course, you may need a Facebook account to do that. Free of course. To become my “friend” you need simply go to: https://www.facebook.com/dearlanadee and request to be added as a friend.
3. I ALSO have a Facebook page STRICTLY for dearlanadee podcasts and messages etc. It is called: https://www.facebook.com/YourFriendLanadee/ You simply visit there and ‘LIKE” my page and you will automatically get the updates.
3. I would still like to keep podcasting. I am praying about that. . BUT all the history, years of previous podcasts etc from the site will be gone and I wanted to at least let you know in advance.
4. ALSO: The new Podcasts will be in video form. I have no choice. (SORRY) but you can always play and just “listen” because unless I become REALLY brave I probably won’t be videoing LIVE, just adding pictures you might like to see. It is located on YOUTUBE. If you visit this link, you can “subscribe” and automatically get a notice when I post. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOTM1lARAatN4RnG7hOV6lw
5. So you see, I may not really be leaving…. just closing down the website that holds my podcasts. My email is still email@example.com You are always invited to write me. I answer! If any of the instructions above are confusing…write me and I will try and help you 🙂
Letting go of my website if very hard for me. I will miss posting to the website. I will miss checking daily (hourly) to see if anyone has visited. I began posting in 2007. That is 9 years this October. I do NOT not give up easily as you can imagine. So PLEASE remember me on 9/9. That is the date I am to pay or leave. And it is time to leave. Even though I can still continue podcasting, I know I will have a tear in my eye when I say goodbye to dearlanadee.com. I DO hope some of you will choose to join me on Facebook or youtube. But even if you don’t, I will think of you, pray for you and continue to wish you God’s greatest blessings upon your life!
I will ALWAYS remain your friend,
