I don’t think it’s my laptop on the verge of crashing… (although it could happen) I backed up all my files just to be safe.
I thought it strange that my issues mostly happened when I was trying to blog. It finally occurred to me to try a different browser.
So, I’m pretty sure that there’s conflict between Microsoft Edge browser and WordPress.
I switched browser and am able to blog at the moment, though it’s slower going than it should be.
Wishing you all a issue-free rest of the week!
