|Pretty much how I've felt trying to find updates on friends blogs....|
Blogs I followed that had very high volume traffic kept showing up in the dashboard, and yet the blogs I regularly READ were nowhere to be found, except occasionally popping into the feed for a minute.
I was beginning to feel like I was having a bad Face Book flashback.....ACK!
So, on a whim yesterday, I went into the list that I follow and deleted A LOT. And most of them were the blogs with Uber-Followers. Blogger was, as usual, acting less than cooperative, so IF in this process, I have accidentally stopped following a blog of one of my faithful readers, let me know. The deleting process was jumping all over, like a hopping flea, and I'm really not sure what went.
HOWEVER!This morning when I looked at my dashboard, guess what?
The blogs I used to find there every day before the *new and improved Blogger* (HA! choke! snarf!) had returned, and suddenly I was having places to visit.
Really, I did not think everyone had fallen off the face of the planet like I do occasionally.....
Well, that little problem is solved for the moment.
I also discovered Picassa, where all our blog images go, had changed radically since I was last there, and I was *trying* to learn my way around, mainly for deleting things. Heaven forbid Google make it E-A-S-Y. Oh no, that's asking too much. The only improvement is you can delete a whole folder/file at once now, so if you have blog-clean-up to do, it quickens the process.
Well, I'm off to another day of computer work, laundry and MAAAAAYBE, if I'm really good, I'll get to squeeze in some art.
Listening to WWOZ to chill out with some amazing jazz.......what a way to ease into the day!
