It’s been over five years since I’ve written a post about priorities, and writing another one is my priority today.

I assume that, depending upon your priorities, your Google news feed might be prioritized differently.
My priorities, here and now, include letting you know that
- The news item of the highest priority for me appears eighth from the bottom of that list and
- Another personal top-priority news item (today’s special election in Ohio) doesn’t even show up in my Google news feed.
One of my priorities in this blog is including a YouTube video that connects to the post title:
Another one of my priorities for these daily blog posts is sharing my photos from the day before:
