I must confess that (almost) every single time the blog blows up, it is my fault. Imagine my utter astonishment that this last time it was the computer’s fault!
For those that have been on vacation (or actually HAVE a life outside of WordPress) my original blogsite at Obsolete Childhood had a huge problem…it was no longer able to post to the feed here. Well, that was unacceptable to me. I love my stuff posting to WP, and figured there had to be a way to fix it. It turns out there wasn’t…so I had all my bazillion posts about nothing transferred to my secondary site, “Suziland Too”.
I learned (the hard way) how to export and then import all of my junk on the blog. Unfortunately, I lost Suziland entirely before I was able to make a list of all my followers and their emails and WP monikers. So….I “lost” about 297 followers in a matter of minutes.
It’s back to finding them all over again the hard way.
Typical Suze behavior though if you think about it. After all, if there is an easy way and a hard way, I usually (always) pick the hard way to accomplish something.
The only thing I really regret is that my world map was almost full….and now it has…………3 countries on it.
I take comfort in thinking that the countries list will rise again to a point that rivals (exceeds) Cyranny‘s map!
***UPDATE**** 36 of my original followers have once again found me…and 3 new ones have appeared! So happy to see people from new places, and I promise I will come and
annoy, irritate, comment on your posts!
Now, there are still approximately 214 followers that have lost the trail and are wandering around the interweb vainly searching for my
words of wisdom erudite statements Blather…so if you sweet people see them, gently shove them trip them push them show them the way back home again.
Not only have I had a visitor from Greenland, but I found a couple of my followers wandering down a frozen beach and brought them back into the warmth of my posts…yea, not really. two found me all by themselves. I would appreciate though a reblog of this nonsense from a few of my longtime bloggery buddies..we used to share so many followers and maybe mine (if they still love me) will see me over on your sites and come home. Or not. it could be they were just waiting for a reason to leave without hurting my feelings. ya never know.
