Yeah really, like none of us have ever screwed up with technology!

We understand! Forgive yourself.

Holy hell. Let this go! I didn’t even blink when I saw it. I kind of chuckled and scrolled past, thinking, “That’ll be a fun one to come back to later when I’m not working!” And so, dear lady, remember this:

You have at least one subscriber (me) who’s actually disappointed by the headline change.

Carry on, you perfectly human creature.

Oh, Jan! I understand your mortification but it’s okay. Seriously. Go easy on yourself.

I'm so sorry this happened, and I know I would feel just like you do. But your readers know you, and that subject line sure didn't sound like you! I immediately thought, "Oh gee, she must have gotten hacked!" Technical flubs are embarrassing and also embarrassingly easy to do. Your readers won't leave you-take a day to take care of yourself and then bring us more of your thoughtful reflections.

Oh for Pete's sake! If that's even in your top 100 of screw-ups you've had a charmed life. One advantage of growing older is supposed to be accepting that we screw up, apologizing and fixing as possible, and then moving on.

So sorry that you are stressed. No need but i understand how you feel. It’s a small thing in the scheme of “awful” things that could happen. Go easy on yourself! There are some interesting newsletters on Substack!!

Oh, Jan! Nothing to worry about at all! No apologies necessary. I can’t even figure out where there was a problem. I don’t have a header or footer, and didn’t realize you had to change them with every post. My unsolicited advice: take a hot shower and crawl into bed, then a lot of strong coffee tomorrow morning!

It's OK, Jan! Anyone who knows you, or who has read your work, knows that you would never intentionally offend or harm anyone. I don't have the technologicial know-how or the courage to put out a regular newsletter like you do. I admire what you do, and I appreciate all the thoughtful posts you have shared with us. Thank you for your apology. Now please forgive yourself for an honest mistake. Get some sleep!

Nope, not unsubscribing. You’re pretty much stuck with me for the long haul ❤️

It happens, sometimes despite our best efforts. Don’t beat yourself up over it. I think most people will forgive you, or just shrug.

I have a pile of stones but didn’t feel at all compelled to throw one. ❤️🤟🏼

Sorry you’ve been going through this. I am still with you all the way. Been down and out for almost two weeks now -hit hard by Covid, so i missed all the drama- read backwards to see, I get how scary “send buttons” feel. I agree a failsafe would be great to give us an “ are you sure you are ready to post?” prompt. No worries, I am a loyal fan, it it want as bad a you think. i agree w/others to move on now, ♥️
