Thursday-7:45am: W

Why??!!
****
Why, Blogger, why?
****
Apparently three out of four of the links in my last post don't work.  Two were links to my stories blog and two were links to this blog.  ????  That makes no sense.  I have re-entered the links to no avail.  My stories blog is not private.  Why does it say no access?!  I have undone and redone various choices in an attempt to jog Blogger's memory...nothing has worked.
****  
*sigh*
****
Why!!??
****
Why am I still not getting all my moderated comments in my inbox?  Inevitably ones I was thinking I'd like to make a personal reply to never make it to my inbox...of course.  
Arrrgg!!!
****
I pray Blogger fixes these glitches.  
I have done what I can.
****
Whining over something that is free and works most of the time is futile, I know.  But it doesn't stop me.
****
So let's have a quick look at some sky pics.
 I loved the contrast between the dark clouds and the white clouds in the back...that glow of the sun that is just out of sight.
 Thank goodness I got my awesome new wild and crazy socks yesterday to cheer me up!  
I have the lilac pair on this morning.
****
I take happiness where I can find it.  :)

I didn't try those links, but I haven't had any problem adding links to my blog. I often link from one blog to the other. Hmmm. I'll look into it for you. Not that I'm promising anything! :-)

I love those socks!!!

I'm going to need to try to put a link on my blog and see what happens. I'm sorry Blogger is such a pain in the butt!

Dana said...

Beautiful sky pics! That's another of my favorite things: watching the shapes clouds make. :)

Cute socks!

Beth said...

WOW!! on the socks!! The sky pictures are neat too!

We all have our blogger issues, don't we? Good grief. However...I agree - it's free and works most of the time. I think Wordpress has more issues. I like your writing and became a follower so I can check back now and then. :-).

laughing at you being cheered up by your socks. so cute!

blogger still won't 'schedule' my posts. i've had to manually hit 'publish' every single day this week.

Technology can be as much a curse as a blessing! New follower here. I’m enjoying reading my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful skies, I'd say. And eblog can be a real pain with it's quirks that for sure....

I only clicked on the link for the God On The Bus story yesterday...not the others. When I just now tried the other links, I got that message saying I didn't have access to them. I don't know why they wouldn't work either. Blogger is just plain tempermental. Works when it wants to and changes when it wants to. (yeah, it's free, but....)

I scheduled a post last night to go in this afternoon and that part worked for me.

Nice socks. I bet they keep your feet nice and warm, too.

That quote is right on.

Socks make me happy too!

Google and Blogger got to me tonight ~ they keep changing the rules in midstream and no one is happy with them right now :(

Love the awesome sky photos ~ Great job!

And your sox are wonderful ~ I have similar ones from Little Miss Match ~ funky and fun ~
Thanks for your well wishes for my brother ~ he is doing well ~ wishing you a great weekend ~ hugs and namaste, ^_^

Rita, I just held my cursor over each of the links in your previous post and the only one that showed as a normal web address in my status bar was - God on the Bus. The others showed like this - http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3861821963101964309#editor/target=post;postID=8931017251943041620 ...which is obviously the problem because it's not a valid web address...it's a coded address.

How are you copying the link addresses? Try using static links...that is, via a separate browser tab, open up the actual post you're wanting to link to so that it's showing on its own page, then Copy the address in the browser bar and Copy it to the Add Link box?? Remove the faulty links first.

Beautiful sky pics and awesome socks!! I'm glad they cheered you up.

Love and hugs,
Serena xo



It's confusing as, if you've added them all the exact same way that you did, God on the Bus, they should link through normally. Very odd.

Glad you got your crazy socks! All great color combinations!! Blogger is so frustrating these days! Do look for comments in your spam folder, I've found them here on my inbox. The only link I tried from yesterday's post was God on a Bus and that definitely did work!

Why Blogger indeed!!

Great sky shots though!

betty

Gotta love that; not to mention agree with it! ;)

And, yep, find happiness wherever you can; socks, sunrises, crafts, whatever! :)

Dave said...

Rita, I understand your problem. I have two blogs and have that problem too. I won't try to advise though as I am not satisfied with the way mine works yet - Dave

I think I've pretty much got a handle on the newest Blogger now. STILL wish they hadn't changed, but oh well...what can we do?

When you wash your socks, how do you know which goes with which??? They don't match, lol!

Intense Guy said...

Why indeed? WHY!??! I'm having the same problems....

I think its time to just change socks and enjoy the toe scenery...
