Having suggested to several people over the weekend, to contact me through this blog, I thought it would be a good idea to get an email with the same name. It would be much easier for folks to spell/remember than my personal email address.
First I tried yahoo, but they need a mobile phone number and to cut a long story short, they took so long sending the registration text, that the page I needed to enter the number on expired before it arrived. After at least three tries over several hours, I figured it’s time to try their ‘call me’ option instead but that’s when yahoo started giving me page error messages instead of the registration page, so I gave up and tried gmail instead. I’d already changed my user name to Ancient Weaver for posting comments on youtube and other peoples’ blogs, so was rather taken aback to be told that I couldn’t have a gmail address with ancientweaver as the name. It was already taken. Errm yeah, I took it . . .
So, back to Yahoo again, and they seem to have fixed whatever was slowing down their registration system, so I finally have an easy to remember email address.
