Every time that I make a bed-sized quilt I say "Never again", mainly because of the weight of the quilt through the sewing machine when I am quilting.
Well the time that I have spent (or should that say "wasted") this week on trying to get my blog to work I could have made a quilt. Firstly the language is all new - I didn't know what a "follower" was, for instance, outside of the religious context, but all my new followers just disappeared into the ether as far as my blog was concerned as did those sites that I wanted to follow myself. I listed them sooooooo carefully, they appeared for the length of time I was looking at the page and then "Biff" they disappered with any refresh of the page never to be seen again. With the help of Lovely Daughter I discovered that I had set the security on my computer so well that any determined purveyor of malware, adverts, spam, phishing, hacking or even ladies who sew would find it impossible to do anything except bounce off my hard-drive!!!!! By enabling my popup menus and disabling my cookie blocker I was able at last to see my followers (oh dear, that sounds a bit egotistical to a lady of mature years like me. .. . ) and also see the sites that I had found to follow.
All is well now? Well, actually no. I still can't leave a comment on Lovely Daughter's blog as any words I may wish to send her just disappear too, never even getting as far as flying through the ether at all. It must be a glitch I haven't found in my blog as I have tried a different computer too so I am still cut off. Is there anyone out there who can help. All suggestions will be gratefully received.
Meantime, if I ever mention setting up another blog, just remind me . . . Never Again!!!!!!
