This might be goodbye

If you are reading this post, Either Google have managed to correct the mess they have made of my feed, or you came by it some other way than through a feed reader.

This is he latest in a list of calamities to happen to my blog. Unfortunately, this one is out of my control and I can’t help but wonder if it’s worth me posting any more. Probably not, at least until Google manage to correct whatever has gone wrong. IF they manage to correct it. Β They’re probably not even aware that anything has gone wrong.

Having gone through all the various checks I am satisfied that my feed is up to date and healthy. The problem occurs on the journey to feed readers.

The strange thing is that I miss it already. Β I keep thinking “Oh I’ll blog about that” and then I remember that it’s a bit pointless.

If I ever get a flood of comments, I will know that it’s OK again, but until then, I am very sad to say, I probably won’t be updating my blog much.

    Hi Babs!

    I just received your email and responded that, yes, I did get your post update through my Google reader today. I haven’t gotten any other one except for the post below this one. So, your reader MUST be working okay.

    And pleeeeeeeeease don’t stop blogging, because we would ALL miss you very, very much.

    X ya, my friend!

    Say Hi to Mo for me, okay?

    • I am thrilled to be back. Though I didn’t go anywhere :)) I didn’t want to stop blogging. I felt like the blogging rug had been pulled from under me for the last week or two.
      Mo says Hi back!

  • Oh no! Please stick around πŸ™‚

  • We rarely comment but always read your posts, and yes you have shown up in our reader too. πŸ™‚

    • Oh, I’m so glad. I thought my blogging days were numbered for a while there. Nice to know that you still visit my blog πŸ™‚

  • Very glad to see it is indeed NOT goodbye!Β  You have had your share of blogging misfortune lately.Β  I hope this is the last of it.

    • They (whoever they are) can’t get rid of me that easily πŸ™‚
      The day I stop blogging I want it to be my choice, not because of a forced situation.

  • well, this sucks. I really don’t want you to stop blogging.Β 

  • Don’t go, Babs, don’t go!! You were in my reader today, so everything is ok and you can keep blogging… please!! πŸ™‚

    • Yes, it all seems to be back to normal, so I’ll be staying. Now I can’t think of anything to blog about πŸ™‚

  • Found this in my Google reader but missed the one before…

    • It seems to have been fixed now. Thank goodness πŸ™‚

  • Babs!Β  I feel your pain!Β  My computer died yesterday and I’m distraught.Β  I think Alex can recover my “stuff”, but what a thing!Β  I hope you are up and running and I would really miss you if you weren’t here!

    • Oh no! That’s NOT good! Hopefully you won’t lose anything (backup, backup, backup). I lost a lot of movies and photos when that happened to me.
      Yes, my blog is functioning again, thankfully πŸ™‚

  • Don’t know what Google is doing.. fiddling about no doubt! Seems they “lost” my sidebar when I wasn’t around.. I gave up trying to fix it though and changed template as you saw!

    • I expect, like Facebook, they continually update, and cause all sorts of glitches along the way. I like your new template πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad this blog is still up! I can’t get to it every day (or even every wee) to check it, but if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t have subscribed. (I read it though Netnewswire, but sync it to my google reader too) Long live Beetle!

    • Thank you so much. I am glad I am able to continue blogging too πŸ™‚

  • Glad it’s straightened out, I only just started reading you!

    • Hi BetteJo and welcome. I’m very glad too and I hope you continue to visit πŸ™‚

  • Well, I am happy to see all is right with the world again… πŸ˜‰ Sure, I’ve been blogging a lot less than I used to, but I really don’t want to give it up altogether. Glad you didn’t have to!

    • Well, I’m still not sure what to do, as my feed is till not getting updated frequently. We’ll see.
