For the last few days, I have been getting a lot of messages from people who can’t access the latest blog posts. The curious thing about this is that the problem is not consistent. Sometimes a reader has no problem opening the blog while someone else in the same area, even in the same campground or house, can’t get to it.
For example, here at home I can look at a new blog post on my computer, but Terry can’t on hers, even though we are using the same Wi-Fi. Or I can sit at my desk and see it on my desktop, but not my laptop or my phone. Clearing the cache does not seem to help, nor does typing the address directly in or doing a search for the blog as opposed to clicking a saved link on their toolbars.
Repeated calls to Go Daddy only serve to raise my blood pressure because their standard answer is that it’s never a problem on their end, the person trying to access the blog must be doing something wrong. Yes, that might be possible if it was just one or two people, but I have received over forty messages about it in the last two days. I don’t believe that many people in different places all suddenly got amnesia and can’t remember how to use a computer.
The interesting thing is that if you can open the blog and it is the previous day’s post, if you click the title headline for that day, quite often when the blog reopens you will see the title of the newest blog on the right-hand side of the box just above the title. If it is there, clicking that will open the new blog. It makes no sense to me.
In other news, I am still waiting on the last proofreader to get back to me with Big Lake Quarterback. I had hoped to be able to tell you it was live by now. Soon, I hope.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
