A message from Matt, one of the super-creative geniuses of WordPress, arrived in my email today. The link took me to a notification called, enticingly, Surprise me.
“It’s the start of a beautiful weekend. Whether it’s raining or shining outside, if you’re reading this you can probably count yourself among the most fortunate folks on the planet.
Perhaps you’re feeling particularly adventurous. You should check out the new “Surprise Me” feature.
To activate, go to your Personal Settings page, check the appropriate box, and save.
I’m not going to tell you exactly what it does. If you’re open to new things and serendipitity in your blogging life try leaving it on as you go about your normal blogging activities of posting, commenting, checking your stats, and such, and see what pops up.
Enjoy the weekend, let me know what you think, and on Monday I’ll be able to reveal more.”
Now tell me, how can one possibly resist such temptation?
Well, I certainly can’t.
So I followed the steps, and am now waiting in breathless anticipation for whatever surprise Matt has in store for us!
