This is a test of making a post and only allowing the first 55 words to appear in the email, with a link back to the website.
I am doing this to see what it looks like in the email when this is done.
What I am doing now:
I am just typing my thoughts here in order to exceed the 55 word cutoff. I pasted the previous sentences in Word and it counted 64! So that should be more than enough.
I can now receive emails at the address “firstname.lastname@example.org” (not case-sensitive). You can use this address to send me an email, but I will usually reply to your email from my Gmail address (email@example.com). This is because I have several active email addresses. All of them forward to my Gmail account, so I only have to check my email at one place. Thanks!
Today I shut down the old CharlieSawyer.com web site. I cancelled the hosting deal I had with Intuit, so the site is no longer on the internet. This also means that the email address Charlie@CharlieSawyer.com is not functional right now. I think I can set that up through Namecheap, the domain name registrar I use. I should be able to have that email forwarded to my Gmail address.
I was paying Intuit $22 a month for pretty much what I can get for free at WordPress. I had the two domains I registered through Intuit transferred to Namecheap. I will have the domain CharlieSawyer.com mapped to this WordPress site.
As of this date I have not made this new WordPress site visible. I will unveil it when it is ready.
