Well, friends, all my nightmares have come true. The horror is upon us. I am in a glass case of emotion and nothing can save me now.
My office blocked WordPress at work.
It really doesn’t get worse than this. Somewhere, in the deep recesses of our building, some IT troll was tasked with expanding the definition of “social media and networking sites” and because they are a friendless freak, decided that WordPress and Twitter and Tumblr and every other site that brings me joy and distraction during the eight hours that I am desk-bound. Perhaps it was a long time coming, but for me, this is akin to someone slashing my benefits package.
Thankfully, I am through the grieving process and starting to move towards acceptance (and towards manipulating the system.) Luckily, I have a hack around the Twitter block (thanks, Hoot Suite) but am still not sure how to get through to WordPress during the work day. If anyone has suggestions for accessing WordPress through blocks, let me know! I will also work more diligently in the next few weeks to post in the evenings or stockpile some posts so that this blog can continue to grow.
As always, thanks for your unending support and continuing to check in on the blog. As for me, I may be slowing dying inside every second I can scroll my Tumblr dashboard at work but as least I’m started to move towards acceptance.
