Frustrations of Blogging

Ok - So this having a blog thing is actually kind of challenging - especially if you don't stay right on top of things.
First of all - a blog that I enjoyed reading has changed blog addresses- but I did not catch it soon enough and now even clicking what I have - does not take me anywhere- I am hoping I am able to look at a comment left by her and see if I can find here new blog.

Then I was looking through my list of blogs I follow and found a couple of them are now private- which is sad because of 2 reasons- first - apparently I cared about the person or I would not have been following them - secondly - I am not able to take their blog off of my reading list because I can't get to the following icon thingy to stop following or take their blog off my list.

Then there are the blogs that have sat dormant for so long that hacker have come in and taken over - and then they take down the ability to stop following that blog - and then they post hundreds of thousands - it feels like- useless posts that I care NOTHING about. And they clog up my reader and make it hard for me to keep up with the blogs that I really want to follow.

Because of the hackers I have had to go in and stop following some blogs that I would love to be following in case they decide to start blogging again - however, I am a bit worried about them getting hacked as well.

I did find an way to stop following some of the blogs - but it is not giving me a complete list of blogs to make that choice about. So I am going to work a bit longer and see what I can come up with.

I will try to type up a catch up post hopefully tomorrow- as I have quite a bit I want to get done today. So please bear with me as I try to resolve some of my issues here.

  1. I had given up blogging altogether when I was going through some seriously trying times. When I made the decision to return, there was no way to recover all my readers because I had dowloaded the posts and deleted the blog completely.

    Truly sorry, Lisa.

  2. Oh my goodness, Lisa...I hope I'm not one of the people who frustrated you with changing my blog around recently..I actually had to take down the new blog I recently made public because my internet connection is not stable enough to keep it updated, and since it was of a personal nature I didn't feel comfortable keeping it 'out there' for all the world to see...I promise, (LOrd willing) I'll keep my hearts home up and going for as long as The Lord allows it.
    But, I know just how discouraging it is to get attached to someone through blogging and then they just disappear on you! I've had that happen far too often. It would be nice if they at least offered to keep in touch some other way if you have formed a friendship..IMHO.
