Blogger and Other Things that Aren't Working for Me
So if you've been following my blog for any length of time than you already know that email and I are often at odds with one another. It's a fact I've come to accept, but I've never been happy about it. Aside from my email woes, I've never had too many problems with other electronic aspects of my life, except for an occasional glitch here or there...and the fact that I can never spell occasional correctly the first time!
Anyway, last night, after having dinner with our kids I was sitting on the couch watching a show when my phone alerted me to some voice-mails. No biggie, I get voice-mail messages all the time, but when I listened to the 3 on my phone they were all wishing me a Happy Birthday. Sounds good right...until you factor in the fact that my birthday was almost 5 weeks ago, and the messages were left for me in early December but were just now showing up! Ugh!
Then today, I was looking at my blog and debating on putting up another bird pic post, when I noticed I had 9 comments on my last post. I thought it must be a typo since I had only received a few email alerts that I had comments. Lo and behold I've been missing comments left and right it seems because I'm not being notified by Blogger that they are coming in. And better still...gmail in its infinite wisdom has decided to throw a bunch of emails into my junk folder for no apparent reason. Thank goodness I decided to see what else I'd been missing, there were tons of them in there that are NOT junk!
And, I've been pinning a bunch of images I took in France over on pinterest, but I'm not sure that people can see them because I normally get email alerts when people repin stuff. So maybe Pinterest isn't working for me either?!
Who knows, but aside from the woodpecker above coming to the feeder more regularly, things seem to not be working out around here. I think the lion above can relate...he looks a little cranky too!
If you want to see more of my France pictures, I'm adding more to Pinterest each day, in my board entitled Paris Perfection. Feel free to click HERE to repin them or to follow along.
