blog scare

December 22, 2007

i came home from church today, opened up internet explorer and just about cried when instead of looking at my blog i saw a generic ad site. my blog had disappeared.

two angry emails to my hosting company later, i realized that my renewal fee for my domain was supposed to go through my bank yesterday, the day after my bank card was deactivated because its number was stolen. of course, in the wake of trying to get all that taken care of, i forgot that my old card was set up to pay for my hosting. and no payment = no site.

and so in a matter of hours it was gone. of course, since i am so addicted to blogging and apparently have no other life, my first thought was, “what am i going to do?!” i finally got a hold of them and used joe’s card to get everything up and running again. sigh. i will be so glad when this is all finished.

i’ve been surprised at how many keyword searches i’ve been getting lately. it’s making me feel better. i was bummed that other people were having keyword searches turn up and i wasn’t.

i haven’t been on the metro in several years, so i don’t have any pics. that’s all i can come up with for this. and i don’t know who david is, so don’t ask. ๐Ÿ™‚

jeff francoeur wedding
why do people keep finding my site by searching for this? i don’t even remember really mentioning him on my blog.

van dolson
it must have been a relative who searched for this. it’s not a very common name, and no one *ever* gets the space or spelling right.

until next week…

i haven’t kept up with looking at keyword activity on my site meters. i can’t remember the last time i had anything register. imagine my surprise when i logged in and found quite a few keywords. maybe this will be a continuing trend. for now, i give you some of the ways people have stumbled upon my blog.

yes, i’m computer illiterate

November 5, 2007

what a day today has been. i tried to upgrade my wordpress platform and ended up screwing things up so badly i couldn’t access my admin panel. i really suck at this kind of thing. luckily, now that i recopied over my old files it seems to be working again. please bear with me while i once again translate all the spanish into english. sigh. dumb me also copied over all my theme files that i had spent so much editing. now, this all begs the question: does anyone here know *how* to upgrade and, if so, would you be willing to help me??

now, i’m off to my meeting. fun times.

survival

November 2, 2007

i don’t know how i’m going to make it through november. first, i signed up for nablopomo. that’s not so bad. it will actually be kind of fun coming up with something interesting to post every day. however, i wish they didn’t do it in november. with the holidays, it’s hard to post every day. i know we’ll be away from our computer for one night while we’re at joe’s parents’ cabin. maybe i can use his dad’s laptop while the boys are out all night smoking the turkey.

the second thing i did was sign up for national novel writing month because i’m finally going to write this book i’ve been working on (or not so much working on). it’s giong to be tough (the goal is to write 1,667 words a day), but yesterday i exceeded my goal and i got on quite a roll, which boosted my spirits. joe is doing it too, so at least i have someone to go through it with. and who knows. i could come up something semi-decent! maybe i will share later. or if you want to read it, leave a comment.

a month of daily posting

October 31, 2007

i know i’m a little late in this, but here it goes anyway. i decided to participate in national blog posting month this year. i’m not really sure why, since some days i have to stretch to find blogging material. but maybe this will be good for me and teach me how to be a little more creative.

i could also use some help! if there’s anything you want me to post about or anything you want to know about me, let me know!

feeds

October 5, 2007

i have heard that my feeds are screwing up so only my sponsored posts are going out. does anyone know how to fix this problem?

UPDATE
i totally fixed it! i’m dumb, and i had checked to exclude all my feeds under my options menu, because i thought that mean excluding them from my sideblog. haha. now all is fixed. yay!
