As many of you know, I blog daily. It’s become a part of my routine. I find that blogging helps to open my mind to different thoughts and ideas along with helping to sharpen my writing abilities. The fact that I’ve met some awesome people along the way has been this awesome bonus. I’ve loved the blogging community I’ve found here on WordPress, because that’s exactly what it is! A community. It’s a place where you can pretty much say anything and people will be there to share their experiences, their knowledge…give feedback. I’ve come to depend on it.
So on Tuesday, I was calmly going along my merry way…creating a post about something admirable that a celebrity did (It’s the post right before this one). The thing is…when I hit Publish, something strange happened! I received this warning telling me to check my dashboard because my blog had been suspended…either because they suspected that yours truly was a Spam-bot (Austin–I promise, I’m not…nor am I intending to start a robot apocalypse!) trying to peddle all sorts of stuff or I’d been being a naughty girl and got TOS’ed. Needless to say…I kind of freaked.
So I called my best friend and he suggested we have a Kiki! What’s a Kiki? I’m so glad you asked!
Hahahaha! Just kidding. Actually, I find the song to be quite fun…I know…I’m disturbed. Not exactly news for all of you…LOL.
I did freak a bit…because I’d put a lot of work into my blog and I didn’t want to lose it. I got in touch with WordPress immediately. I didn’t get an answer for a while….not even a form letter to say they’d received my concern/complaint. You guys were great, though. Some of you contacted me on Twitter, others by email..just to make sure everything was okay. It felt nice to know that people noticed because though we comment on each other’s blogs…we have never “really” met. The thought of losing all my work…or having to start over with my blog was very disheartening, but you guys reassured me to hang in there. For that I dedicate this one to you guys…
Then, today…I got the email. It had all been one HUGE mistake…and not by me. Apparently I’d hit WordPress’s spam protection. After carefully looking over my blog they realized that I was not a robot…or a zombie (thank you Rob…now you and zombies are eternally intertwined in my warped mind).
In the meantime…I’m back in the driver seat…. And pretty soon I’ll be back in the swing of thinks…kinda like…
Syndey, I’m so glad you messaged me and told me that it took them 4 days to get your blog reactivated. You calmed my nerves and let me just try to relax. (I don’t do hurry up and wait very well)
Now, I’m filled with GLEE…haha…and able to laugh about the whole thing. In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit goofy… (No, shit…right?)
