I am having blogging woes. Here I sit, with my pretty new design, at my new location that was supposed to cure all my old blogging issues. But no. Now I have more darn blogging problems than I left behind. My blog is supposed to bring joy to my life – not endless frustration:(
Here is what I want you to know:
- There seems to be some problem with subscribing to this new location.
- What appears to be working are the three subscription options on the top right side of the blog. (Subscribe in a reader with the orange icon, subscribing via email, and feedburner with the blue button.)
- What appears not to be working: the email subscriptions are a day behind, typing my URL into a google reader directly brings up my first blog, even though I just deleted it! But you CAN use google reader if you use the RSS feed or feedburner buttons! (I think.)
What else does work: If you type my URL in your address bar, you should get here just fine:) Yahoo for small miracles.
What else may not work: Trying to add my new URL to your blogroll. I have no clues on this glitch. And when I leave comments on some blogs I see that my link shows one of my previous locations, no matter how I type in my URL. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it has been directing back to my first blog all along and I just didn’t know it. But that blog is now gone, which just makes this even more crazy.
Other things going wrong because of this new blog: Somehow now I am unable to comment on lots of blogspot blogs. My openID is not accepted and other such stuff. I hate when I want to comment and can’t! Heavy sigh.
Thank you to everyone who has reported problems to me; otherwise I would not have known what was going on. If you encounter any, any at all, it may help me resolve them to know details. You can comment here or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am not technologically savvy so have no idea how to fix what is happening. If anyone has suggestions, they would be most welcome.
And I am still working on the other kinks. And I admit that I am having daily regret that I made this leap, wondering if I should have stayed where I had to do less of the behind the scenes stuff myself. I do NOT want to move again. I do not want to be frustrated by my blog. This is supposed to be where I go to get AWAY from stress! I want to get back to my blogging happy place:)
