A field of ripening barley moves with the breeze.
I didn’t have a good day here on WP yesterday. It was pretty frustrating eventually finding out that the comments I was trying to leave on people’s blogs were going into the spam folders. It still isn’t resolved – maybe it won’t ever be resolved; I don’t know. All I know is that a fair few other bloggers are having the same problem and as far as I can tell, it hasn’t been resolved for them either.
Thank you to everyone who came over yesterday to like or comment on my whiney post about it all. I really appreciate it. It’s not easy being faced with a post that’s angry in tone. It was sheer frustration. Thanks again for your kind and supportive comments.
I was ready to throw it all in yesterday – and most of today – but a fellow blogger is having the same problems and her lighter attitude to it gave me a different perspective. You may already know TBM at ’50 Year Project’. Here are links to her posts about the comments problem just in case the problem arises for you:
I made a few comments yesterday on people’s blogs which will have gone into your spam folders. I’d like to ask a favour: could you please check your spam for my comments and un-spam them. It might help akismet to learn that my comments aren’t spam.
All this has made me realise just how ephemeral blogging can be. One minute, you are communicating fine with your community (an important aspect of blogging to my mind 😉 ), the next moment – you lose the ability to comment on your blogging friends’ posts through no fault of your own and there isn’t much you can do about it. I shall attempt to go with the flow, however, as getting angry and frustrated is no good to anyone.
