Why I'm using a widget on the Royalty.nu News page

If you’re a regular visitor to the Royalty.nu News page, you’ve probably noticed that the format has changed recently. Instead of carefully editing and organizing lists of news links myself, I have posted a widget that automatically updates itself with some links.

The reason for the change: I haven’t been feeling well for a couple of months now, and I’ve been having trouble keeping the news page up to date. A lot of trouble. I don’t think I’m seriously ill, just tired. The trouble with news is that it never stops, and after 18 years of running a news site (by myself and with few vacations), I badly need a break.

The widget lets me post some news links in a timely fashion without spending hours every day on it. But I know it’s not as good as the old news page format, and I apologize. You deserve better. I hope you will bear with me till I figure out what to do next.

Thank you for your dedication. I have been enjoying your website for many years and hope you will be able to continue. You are right to be sensible and take care of your health first. Fatigue is very hard to recover from, so take your vitamins, get lots of sleep and take time to smell the roses! All the best.

So very sorry to hear you are not doing well.
As much as I l o v e this site, however, nothing is worth comprising your health.
If you can find a helper to help you continue this sight that would be wonderful for you and for us.
The pleasure you give me each and every time will be diminished knowing you are not in the best of health. I know all your followers feel the same, too.
Hugs,

Thank you for running a very fun, informative, and even-handed site. You’ve done a great job. If the site returns in its previous form, I assume that would be good news on your health. But as everyone here has said: health first.

I’ve been “researching” modern monarchies since I was 15 years old. I am now almost 53 and still fascinated. I, too, have enjoyed your site and wish you a good rest! I honestly had no idea you were doing it all by yourself. That is extraordinary – thank you for all your hrs work!

I regularly check your posts (perhaps twice a week) and I always find interesting things to read. You are right I hate the new format but your health comes first, so rest up and feel well again and thank you for your hard work and for keeping us up to date with the “royals”. Doing this by yourself is arduous to say the least, but it is an excellent site.
So, take care of yourself and best wishes.

Thank you for all the fun and news you’ve given us over the years. However, your health is the most important gift in the world and you must put that first. This widget will still provide hours of fun and information. Hope you feel better soon!

You deserve a rest now and until you are well again. Iron and magnesium may help. You have done a great service to everyone for the past number of years. It is time for you now. God speed Health.

Your site is wonderful. I have read it daily for seventeen years and I’m afraid you have spoiled us. Your followers are so accustomed to your good work, that no widget, or any other Royalty site will satisfy us. I sincerely hope that you feel better soon. Thank you for your hard work. It is appreciated.

I thought that I might be one of just a few who would comment – what a great surprised, and every single kind comment is well – deserved. I especially appreciate that you provide information and links without any cruel or insulting remarks, or getting into politics. You have done a beautiful job and it’s time to rest on your laurels for however long you wish to. Just know that we will miss you.

It has been a long time. Would it be a consideration of advertise for help in returning to the original format. So, many people are seeking work that it may not be difficult to find someone.

HI CINDERELLA YOU PROBABLY DON’T REMEMBER ME FROM ANOTHER WEB SITE ON ROYALTY YOU DID A LONG TIME AGO! I WAS KNOWN AS LADY JANE GREY (SHARON) BEFORE THAT SITE WAS CLOSED DOWN!

I LOVE THIS SITE VERY MUCH CINDERELLA AND I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE PUT A LOT OF LOVE AND HARD WORK INTO THIS SITE FOR THE PAST 18 YEARS BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE WORKED SO HARD THAT YOU HAVE A CASE OF WRITERS BURN OUT!

THE ONLY CURE FOR THAT IS LOTS OF REST AND READING WHEN YOUR UP TO IT THE HISTORICAL FICTIONAL, BIOGRAPHY, ETC. BOOKS BUT MOST OF ALL IS LOTS OF REST AND RELAXATION CINDERELLA!

YOU HELPED ME A LOT WITH MY PAGE IN THE OTHER ROYALTY SITE NOW LONG GONE WHEN I WAS NEARLY BLIND FROM CATARACTS MY DEAR FRIEND CINDERELLA AND I HAD SOME CATARACT SURGERY FOUR YEARS AGO AND I CAN SEE A LITTLE BIT NOW FROM MY GOOD EYE AND IT IS A LOT CLEARER!

I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YOU EVERY NIGHT CINDERELLA THAT YOU WILL GET BETTER SOME TIME IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS!

SO YOU WILL FEEL BETTER, HAPPIER AND HEALTHIER MY DEAR FRIEND CINDERELLA! I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH BECAUSE I HAVE GONE THROUGH IT MYSELF!

IF YOU NEED A FRIEND TO TALK TO WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH PLEASE WRITE TO ME CINDERELLA!

GET WELL SOON MY DEAR FRIEND CINDERELLA FROM YOUR FRIEND LADY JANE GREY (SHARON)!
