As you may know I was suspended.
Now I’m unsuspended.
In the interim I paid for a domain name and host for a new blog.
Not too bad really, only $150 for three years and as I thought that I was done for this site I went along and bought it.
I was completely locked out of this blog and couldn’t get access to anything or anyone to figure out what was going on.
I did find a way to move my content over to the new blog which was great, but couldn’t get any of my images, so the new blog looked awful with all those empty squares with that little tiny blue box in the middle.
Hate those squares.
I always feel as though I’ve not been picked to play on their team.
Could be my abandonment issues.
So I made all of the content private and thought I’d just start over.
I wasn’t too bothered about that.
What I was bothered about was never being able to talk to you guys again.
I’ve come to like it.
Not that we’re engaged or anything…
I spent all day trying to figure out how I could transfer my subscribers list to the new blog.
I even downloaded a plugin.
Who the h#** knew what they were?
O.K. you probably did.
Don’t judge me…
and only then WP e-mailed me, apologized for the inconvenience, and told me that they’d made a mistake and I could have my blog back.
Now, you may think that this is all well and good, and I would have to agree, EXCEPT for the fact that the people who subscribed to my new blog received 563 BILLION e-mail notifications as all the content became unlocked.
I sure hope it was only the new subscribers, because otherwise I’m going to go hide my head in some sand.
If you’re one of the ten.
To be honest I’m not going to blame WordPress. As a blundering blog user I can usually muddle my way through. Unfortunately this time some of you suffered during my learning curve.
As I’ve paid for the new blog I think I’m going to go ahead and use it.
I’m not completely happy with the look of it yet as it seems so white that it hurts my eyes, and it’s a little sterile, but I’m working on it.
I’m still not sure about how to transfer my subscribers over, but I’m working on that also.
In the meantime I promise you that if you do subscribe to my new blog you won’t receive all of the e-mail notifications that the world has to offer.
O.K. perhaps I shouldn’t promise, but I’m pretty sure that now the drama seems to be over we’re safe to come out to play…
HERE’S the new site.
I’d love to see you there.
