Salutations

Greetings all,



My technical limitations are legendary. Yesterday I attempted to forward a serious message about a missing child and I somehow sent a blank message to about 20 people. Four of them kindly informed me of my error.



I continue to make progress. Foetrydotcom introduced me to the joys of electronic dialogue and the value of increasing these skills. I am not in the same league as Alan, Matt or Bugzita, but I am in a different level than in my earliest days.



If folks have an interest in corresponding with members of foetrydotcom, I am willing to facilitate by way of email. It will not always be possible and it will not be an instant process. Please contact me at: msnomir@gmail.com.

Hi Nomi,

Sorry I missed your call. I have been out of the office. My guess is that you can't change font, because there is a CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) command applied to all of the posts to make them conform to a specific font and font size style.

That is, anything you might try to post in the blog is being overridden by a "master command" that is located in the template.

You may be able to fiddle with the HTML to modify the font style within your post (using a style command like [span style="font-family: Arial;"]text[/span] (where all [] are actually <>, because it wouldn't let me type <> or HTML code in this comment) or something like that. But I can't say for sure without trying.

And I don't have editorial access to Post Foetry. Maybe Jennifer could figure it out for you.

Sorry I couldn't help more. Hope you and Ethan are well!

Yours,
Matt

Matt,

If you wish, I can grant you admin access; I hesitated because I was afraid you'd feel pressure to jump right into the fray again.

;=)

Let me know if you'd like to be promoted to admin or not. Whatever you wish is fine with me.

Cheers, Bugzita

Hi Bugz,

I appreciate the offer, but I probably won't have time to take on any admin duties. I'm enjoying my retirement as much as I can.

If I experience a resurgence of PoBiz interest and have more time to spend back in the fray, then I'll give you a shout that I can do more.

But at the moment I'm immersed in sketching out the preliminaries of what may become a book on Jungian psychology. That is, I have no formal outline for a book yet, but I've been generating a lot of essays that will probably lead to an eventual organization/formalization into a book (or multiple books).

I'm not sure what I want to take a stab at first: a more personal memoir about Jungian pursuits or a more formal, scholarly book on a specific topic in the field.

If I did the former, I may choose to go the POD self-pub route. But I don't think the Jungian publication world is as screwed up as the PoBiz. I.e., if I just sent a Jungian publisher a cover letter and sample from a manuscript, I stand a reasonable chance of publication . . . credentials being mostly a non-issue (at least I hope).

Still, I am a firm believer in self-publication, and I would like to give it a shot. The determining factor would be seeing if I could get any of the main distributors of the Jungian presses to carry my self-pubbed book, too.

It's basically a genre field that includes a lot of spiritual and memoir-like writings, so there may be a chance.

Yours,
Matt

Matt,

That's fine, and I understand perfectly. I wish you the best for your Jungian book--I suspect you'll break some new ground.

I do hope you'll stop by here from time to time. I don't know where this forum will go or if it will go.

BTW, I saw your new forum. ;=)

Yours, Bugz
