Sometimes newer is NOT better

I just wrote a post.  It all looked ok, but when it came into my mailbox….oi, as my mother used to say.  I THINK it is all fixed on the site, but if you got a strange looking post, apologies.  Just go to http://toobusytofundraise.com

New, it is clear, is not always better.  It really isn’t better if you don’t let the people who are affected by your change know what is happening–and what they need to do to adapt.  It would have been helpful if WordPress had let me know what was occurring so I could have ensured that I wasn’t blindsided.

Change is always hard, but it is  harder still if you don’t plan for it, get necessary buy-in, and ease into it slowly and with care.
