Misc Biz – WordPress Woes

“Misc Biz” is the name of the folder in my Gmail where I put stuff that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else.

As many of you might know, I had a big ol’ website crash a couple or three weeks ago because I committed the egregious sin of updating a regular WordPress plugin. Now the site is up again, but I know of several things that disappeared. One was the blogroll on the blog page. The other is, apparently, subscribers.

Question for those of you who subscribe to the blog via email (and thanks to LL for pointing this out): are you getting your email updates? WordPress and its various plugins have never worked well for me–it doesn’t inform me of comments, for example, like it’s supposed to. Works maybe a third of the time. So I have to manually come and check for comments, which is hard during busy day-job days. If you have gotten email notifications in the past but aren’t now–or are getting them as usual–please leave a comment so I’ll know if it’s a widespread or isolated problem.

That’s it for today–I’m off to write three guest posts for other blogs (welcome to world of blog tours). THANK YOU to everyone who has ordered BLACK DIAMOND–please leave a review at Amazon, as those reviews impact how the book is promoted. *begs* Pleeeeeeze. Thank you!

See you tomorrow with a new Reader’s Choice giveaway!

  1. now that you tell me looks like i haven’t gotten any ( since 3oct) will try to resuscribe ( but i do checvk daily and on bloglovin so it didn’t impact me hard)

  2. I am not getting your email notices. I tried to resubscribe but was told I am already a subscriber. I do check your blog on a regular basis, but it would be great if I could receive the emails again.

  3. I’m getting emails, but don’t get the new comments after I have posted. Sorry for your word press woes!

  4. Suzanne,

    I don’t seem to be getting the WordPress e-mails. Thank goodness I’m getting your Google e-mails!

  5. I’ve been getting notifications to my gmail–I don’t know if I get every single one, but I seem to be getting a good number of them!
