Enjoying the “permanence” of a website

Ok, ok, I know websites aren’t exactly permanent. Technology changes – who knows what might come along to replace websites.
But my website kind of feels permanent to me!

I just spent some time (hours, actually!), adding one of my scientific papers…

“Testing the Effects of a High Fiber Instruction”

Now it is there for the world to see anytime. A static page. Sort of permanent. Just two more papers to go, then on to the mountain of relevant research I need to add.

I must press forward. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t run into someone who needs this information. It’s not always someone with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. There are so many others… people with digestive systems, feeling the effects of our industrialized foods.

I used to spend hours on the phone, explaining to one person

…what they needed to understand about fiber and the gut. Now I can offer a web address where they can read the information and go back over it as many times as they need to, to absorb complex concepts.

I’m thankful for the developers of the Internet, the people at WordPress, the people at Bluehost, and Jocelyn, my website mentor – all of whom have made this website possible.
