The past ten days I ran into some bad mojo. Everything was going wrong. I say ‘was’ because I refuse to let the bad ‘mo’ continue into this week.
I’ll start with the title of the blog.
I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, because WordPress gives me a free blog. However, I’d like to type out a train of profanity right now over the troubles I’m having with this blog site.
All of you fantastic bloggers that I follow, please don’t think I’m missing in action. For some reason I am not receiving email notifications when new blog posts go up. I know I can check the reader, but I don’t have time to scroll through all of those. I just get to the ones in my email whenever time arises. I’m also not receiving notifications of comments and likes on my own blog.
This has been going on for a week now. I’ve been to the WordPress forums asking about it several times. I’ve also noticed several others on those forums with the same issue. And yes, I did check my settings. They are set for me to receive notifications instantly. Sigh.
Having said that, I also had trouble with my computer crashing right in the middle of editing a chapter for my WIP. Yes, I had it backed up on two flash drives, but I couldn’t open up MS Word without any of them crashing. I was on the phone with Sony four times. Now I’m being told I have to format the computer back to the beginning, which means wiping it completely clean. We spent all weekend backing up contacts, bookmarks, etc. I just bought this laptop in November. Sigh.
My body computer is giving me issues too. In plain English, over those past ten days I wasn’t in the best of health. But, I resolve to keep all of this stuff in the past. I know they won’t disappear on their own, but I’m working on them as I put them in the past.
So, here is a bouquet for all of us for brighter days ahead.
