Expectations

Isn’t it frustrating when stuff that usually works without delays or glitches suddenly doesn’t work. Like when your internet connection goes down. That happened to me recently and boy did I miss the internet. It is such a big part of my day. My connection to the world. Then about a week ago my browser had really slowed down to a snail’s pace and I decided to clear my cache. Later that day I wanted to sign into my WordPress account and guess what, WordPress did not recognize me and could not find my account. That was pretty upsetting because I didn’t expect to be cut off from my blogs and all my stored posts. It was like I did not have an account and never had a blog, the ‘twilight zone.’ Around the same time another blogger friend, Dan Antion, was posting about glitches on WordPress, like the ‘comment’ section not working. I realized I had noticed other people’s ‘Like’ function not working. It would say, ‘loading…’ and then not load. I discovered that if I refreshed the page the ‘Like’ feature would work. But then I thought it probably hasn’t been working on my blogs either and maybe several people were not able to ‘like’ my posts because the ‘Like’ button was broken,(that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it). It took me what seemed like a very long session with the Support person on WordPress and then I was transferred to the Happiness Engineers and we finally got me back to my blog site. So all good, and life returned to normal, at least on WordPress. But this morning I go to sign in and I am having problems signing in and then my Reader page, with the other blogs I am following , is not loading. I am getting this message in a red square with an exclamation point to boot, that ‘sorry we are unable to find the posts you are following’ or something like that.  So more time with Support person and then after some crazy voodoo, I don’t know what we did, I am able to sign in and see who I am following.

    It is so frustrating when things go wonky on WP. I had the same problem with the ‘like’ not loading, and I did the same as you…got out of the place I was, then went back and it would work. I know I’m so much on the internet and blogs all the time, and when something goes wrong I want it fixed as soon as possible! 🙂

      I wonder if it has to do with the ‘cookies.’ I get this notification now that WP uses cookies and just maybe they are clogging up my browser? I am not used to having problems with WP and whatever they are doing I hope that remedy it soon. Thanks, Barbara.
