You ever have those moments when you just want to sit back and say, "Really? I mean, REALLY?"
Here's one of mine:
Wordpress hates me. HAAAATES me. It won't publish any of my comments on WP blogs. I have no idea how long it's been going on, but definitely for the past two weeks or so, maybe longer.
I went to the Wordpress site and looked for a way to contact them for help.
There isn't one. The only thing I can do, according to WP, is check their forums and see if I can find the same problem listed. First of all, like I have the patience for that. Second of all, THANKS FOR ALL THE CUSTOMER SUPPORT, WORDPRESS. YOU'RE A PEACH.
My friend Lizzi suggested I sign up for a Wordpress account, and then maybe, just MAYBE, WP would quit being so snarky with me.
Then, I decided I would comment, then send an e-mail to each WP blogger on whose posts I made a (disappearing) comment and let them know to check their spam folders and kindly fish my comment out. (I did learn something in this whole debacle: I HAVE A SPAM FOLDER. News to me!)
Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an email address on some folks' blogs? If they have a Google Plus button, then I contacted them that way, but very few blogs include an email address, mine included (but which I just remedied...). Mine will also get a Google Plus button as soon as I figure out how to do it.
So, I say, "REALLY, Wordpress? REALLY?!"
All I want to be is a mannerly blogger, and Wordpress is making me look like a bloghole, both in the A to Z Challenge, where the biggest challenge is currently POSTING A DAMN COMMENT to my obligations as a co-host of the best weekly blog hop evah, Ten Things of Thankful (and if you are a blogger and are reading this and not already a participant in TToT, WHY AREN'T YOU? It's fun!).
If you are IT savvy AND can talk to me like someone whose sum total of IT knowledge would fit onto the head of a pin, then I would welcome your suggestions as to how to fix this comment purgatory in which I find myself.
If you are a Wordpress blogger, I first must ask WHY and then ask that you check the spam folder that I didn't know you had and see if you can find my comments in there.
In the meantime, I will sit in my little blog corner and feel left out and sad.
And now, since there is no visual for this post, I will offer you a picture of something else that starts with "R": my precious baby girl Ruby.
