Everything about this blog has changed for me. Not that it is a bad thing. But it feels different. Writing here feels different. I’m hoping that it is this time of year, that the mojo is temporarily on leave. But I can’t help but think that it has something to do with this early stage of set up and working out the problems. I’m frustrated. It’s hard, this WordPress thing. It has all the glitches and problems of a full blown website. Which, in lot of ways it is. I’m tearing my hair out. And I hear some of you are too. Sorry about that! I’m chipping away at the issues. Keep letting me know as issues arise, I’m trying to sort them out. See, not as much fun as having Google take care of your whole world and you just make it look pretty and say stuff to the interwebs. It almost fades in my memory how terrible it was to be shut down. Almost. But not entirely.

Fingers crossed I come out the other side soon.

    You WILL get there, Melissa.

    Enjoy your Christmas and return rested, ready to tackle the WordPress monster again. Once it’s sorted, you won’t have to worry about being shut down again and you can concentrate on saying stuff to the interwebs 🙂

    • Thanks Jayne. I’m hoping to sort it out in the new year. I appreciate the cheer up though. Feels miles away.

    i’m happy to report to you that i haven’t had one problem with your new website!

    i will admit that i’m not a fan of your background, it can sometimes make it hard to read what you’ve written but that could just be my dodgy eyes!

    here’s hoping you find your mojo early in the new year – like any move, it can take awhile to find your footing in a new space!


    • I’m glad. Makes me wonder why browser you use. Let me know, please.

      The chevron one? Naaw, that’s the bit I like. We’ll see about some more white space for reading. Thanks. xo

  • Aside from that one little feed glitch, i’m not having any problems. Getting you loud and clear over here! So chin up and just keep on, keeping on…. and Merry Christmas Ms Suger!

  • aww hun, after so much time at blogger I can’t imagine swapping over would be easy it does feel different here, but you will make it your own little place of Suger soon enough. I think its the photos that’s missing down the side maybe?? I don’t think anyone will be going anywhere anytime soon Suger : )

    • It could be, for sure. Trying to find a way to get everyone back in their rightful place. xo

    Melissa, I needed to search through your archives for the blog button tutorial for another blogger. Found it no problem, but the link to the post wasn’t active in the search results so I couldn’t copy the URL. The only way around it was for me to share it to my own email and then link directly to it after.

    I’m sorry this migration is being such a pain for you. Hopefully between you and Sass you can nut it out xx

    • Grrr. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll take a look into it. Did you get what you needed? Let me know if not.

      • Jayne

        I did, thanks Melissa 🙂 xx

  • I’m so sorry you’re not feeling it right now. You’re far braver than I. I don’t think I’m ever going to be brave enough to move to the dark side. I’m happy having Google and a certain Suger to help when my home on the web misbehaves.

    Take a step back for a few days. Enjoy your man and your family. Come back after the holidays and tackle a step at a time.

    We’ll all be here. Not going anywhere, Mel.

    (BTW. For the record – and I’m only mentioning it because you said to let you know. Apparently there’s a time limit? I read the post, commented and it told me my session had timed out? This is attempt #2. We’ll see how it goes).

    • Thank you Melissa. Big love. Thanks for the wishes. See you in the new year.

      Stupid time out. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂

  • Make that attempt 3 that actually made it through.

  • E.

    Merry Christmas! I hope that you have your blogging mojo back after Christmas or early in the New Year.

    Like Melissa I’ve also had issues commenting since the change over. But I’ll still be trying to comment, regardless.

  • When I found out my posts hadn’t been going out I lost my mojo for a bit, it’s back now. I have been working through my frustrations with wordpress for a year now…still know the basics but learn more each day. I know you’ll work it out, PS the background is sending my eyes crazy as well…maybe it’s because I get migraine. Hope your Christmas was wonderful, my daughter seemed to grow up just that bit more today right in front of my eyes. I keep looking at her and she just seems different! love to you and Kelvin xxx

    • You & I we need luck in the new year to get this WordPress thing sorted.

      Background again, huh. Darn it.

      Merry Christmas to you guys. Big love from us. xox

  • I have recently changed to WordPress too http://blog.mummybrain.com/ and finding it much better than Blogger. What issues are you having? Would love to hear, and help if I can.

    • I’m so glad the changeover went well for you. It’s nothing major. Having issues with the mobile template, issuing with comments timing out and there’s something funny going on with the archived posts. 🙁
