About Our Project

Lin/Linda here: You may wonder how we manage this website.  I’ve had a few people ask me about it because they know that Sue and I live about 700 miles from each other.  There’s also an international connection…read on!

The reason there is all of this is because of Sue’s mission to help others who are going through something similar.  Soon I will be publishing her 100th page!  I published her first page (In the Beginning) on February 25th, 2016.  I’m writing this on July 26th, 2016, which is 5 months, 1 day, later.

If you haven’t had a chance to learn more about Sue, I suggest you go to these pages:

As to how we know each other & for a little more about me, I suggest you go to:

A page is born

It all starts when Sue writes her page in Pennsylvania.  She then sends it to me by email in Georgia.  When I get the email, I do minor edits and add the links.  I send it back to Sue for proofreading.

Sometimes editing Sue’s first draft (and reading her emails) means trying to figure out what her typos mean (love auto-correct).  For example, I had to figure out that ‘a brisket ankle’ meant a ‘broken ankle’ and that ‘toxo plus Moses’ was ‘toxoplasmosis’.  Great entertainment sometimes!

The international connection is with the Midlands of England where my dear friend Lesley lives.  When I send Sue the page to proofread, I also send it to Lesley to proofread and check all the links.  Lesley is amazing, she regularly finds things that both Sue & I miss!!

If Sue and/or Lesley find problems, they tell me about them and I fix them.  When the page gets the OK from both of them, I add it to my ‘ready to publish’ list.

Time Travel

Somewhere along the line, Sue was sometimes writing more than 1 page a day.  We decided to publish a page every other day so now we are publishing pages that were written in the past. For example, on July 26th, I published a page that was written on May 19th.  That sometimes makes things tricky but I reread each page before I publish it and change anything that is time sensitive.

That’s how we do what we do!  Questions?

  1. I think that you all do a great job….. now just tell me how I can keep my chargers straighten out for when I need them and can find the right one. I was told last year that I had AMD and less then a year later I have started loosing my close vision and will be going in the end of Oct for two test looking into why that is. My specialties has not a clue. The test are gu and cp whatever they stand for.

    1. That’s for your comment, Donna. As I told you in my email, Sue has put the chargers and cables for a device where she uses it in the house. You may have to purchase extra cables and chargers to do this. Also, I hope you will find some ideas here: http://mymacularjournal.com/archives/2250. I wish I could be more helpful but it’s hard to know what is best for you without knowing what your exact needs are and what your environment is like. Perhaps our readers and those in our Facebook group with post some ideas here. As far as what those 2 tests might be, I’m not able to find anything. If you have other questions, please let me know. Best wishes, Linda…
