Blogger Gave Me A Good Swift Kick


Yeah, that's right. I finally come back, and Blogger lets me have it. Oh, Blogger, why so angry? Is it because I was away for so long? Or is it because you didn't want me to come back? What? What is it?

Wait, I know. It's because you're annoyed by all the shoes I post. That's it, isn't it?

Okay, okay. I'll admit it.

It wasn't entirely Blogger's fault. It was...err...more along the lines of user error. Apparently, I had my cookie filter set too high and wasn't able to comment on some of your posts. Problem solved now, though, so I hope to get around to you all today. (And, Blogger, I'm sorry about all those nasty names I called you. I didn't mean it. Really, I didn't.)

Anyway, I guess I missed a lot of big things while I was gone. Blogger had an epic fail????? Say what????? Of course, I'm probably glad I missed that, huh? Sounded horrible!

But, I also missed the news that my friend, Carol Riggs, signed with an agent. Congratulations, Carol!

And, I almost missed WriteOnCon. Oh, what a tragedy that would have been! (By the way, that's where I've spent most of my time the last three days). It was amazing! If you didn't participate, you can still access the conference events at the WriteOnCon website here. It will be well worth your time, trust me. And it's totally free!

Okay, I think that's all I have to talk about. Oh, wait, one more thing...thank you all for your big-ole warm welcome back. It was awesome! (And on a side note to Blogger...I still can't see my followers, and I have a couple of new ones I'd like to go visit. What's up with that? I thought we were all good...)

Have a great weekend! (Well, not you, Blogger. You better be working hard this weekend to fix all my blogging problems!)

Susan, I hope blogger is better behaved for you from now on. It's always a treat to get back into!

Leah Rubin said...

Yay-- welcome back! I admit I haven't been paying enough attention to my OWN blog, let alone the wonderful blogs I follow... Life interferes, but I'm trying to do better! I'm happy to know you're back in the swim again!

MG Higgins said...

Yeah, Blogger is being snitty with me, too. My followers come and go at whim.

Blogger had an epic fail? I guess I must have missed that, too--though I did notice they changed a few things and it doesn't like internet explorer anymore. Glad to have you back!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

That blogger is infuriating at times!!! Hope things come back to normal soon! Happy weekend!!! :O)

Interesting; I missed the last Blogger fiasco somehow. But I hate it when it won't let me post comments. I see you had to post Anonymous on my blog again (and for some reason your Like on my author page didn't show up either!). All cuz of a cookie filter? Hmmm.

And hey, thanks for the getting-an-agent mention! *grin*

I can no longer post comments with my blogger account, even on my own blog. I never did anything with any cookie settings, so I blame blogger for not telling me if they are wrong.

You make it all sound highly amusing- which it isn't!! But the only way is UP, right?!

Nancy said...

I hate it when there is a blogger problem. I have to find out first if it's only me or if other people are getting it too.

Hope you get things straiathtened out. And you can never have too many shoes. I'm sure blogger loves shoes.

Stephanie Faris said...

Eeeek. What happened with Blogger? I've been away too and missed all the fun.

Carolyn V said...

Woohoo! I'm so glad you're back. I took a break too (okay, two or three breaks) but school's back in and I'm back for a while. Hope things are good with you. =)

Seems like blogger is getting more and more problematic these days... don't they know we writers NEED each other? :)
