Dear guys and my blogger friends!
Had to write this urgent post today to discuss the recent problems we’ve been encountering here on our blogosphere…
As you may have noticed these days so many good blogs have gone missing, and when you try to reach your usual favorite blog buddies, the search hits zero result.
I know many blogs that were gone had nothing to do with spam, or had any weird content… Those blogs were beyond awesome and trustworthy, yet they simply randomly disappeared.
Hope they will be back!
I’m sure now everybody is highly concerned with backing up their blogs content and pray the problem blows over.
I myself open my site each morning, holding my breath and give a sigh of relief when I see it’s still here.
Although I also had my share of frustration lately. It started with happy events though.
For the whole past week each day in a row I’ve been receiving awards and nominations, and as a rule, to each award, you must also nominate many people and pass them the note with a link to your blog.
So that the guys know where to come back in order to pick their award and a badge.
So I sent many comments to my blogging friends, notifying them about their nominations and linking back at me.
Then I found out that all my recent comments have been thrown into your spam folders. A few blogger notified me about that and helped me trace the problem.
(I suspect some dark powers got seriously annoyed with my bragging and thought ‘There you go witch, have some bitter-sweet to it’ ;) )
So now I’m basically concerned with two main things here:
1. How can I have my comments avoid being thrown into a spam section?? If anyone had a similar problem and resolved it, please share an advice.
2. And along the way I’d also appreciate a tip on how to save myself a heart attack in case my blog goes missing. In other words, how are you backing up your content? Any specific plugins?
I know nothing in “bblaflg-bla-dfjghkhdp-bla-grfrgtwpl-bla” etc. technical explanations :D
Well, please do check my previous two posts concerning the awards, I nominated many people there and would love them to know about it and come pick their awards!
Since I can’t get through to reach some of you so far. Hope this technical issues will get resolved soon.
As a conclusion, weird to say it, but do check your junk folders, I’m sure you’ll discover many lost and suspended comments there from your blogger friends that intended to send no spam to you.
I myself find a lot of friends’ comments and relevant pingbacks being thrown into my bulk folder and have to unspam them manually in order to post and reply those.
Please, dear Word Press, save us and let us blog in peace! Blogging should be a happy rewarding experience.
Dear guys, I’ll resume acknowledging my awards here next week, there are still many more to post! ;)
Because if I keep nominating people and spreading the awards a while longer now, I’ll be soon off to writing a dear-diary by hand, it looks…
Cheers! And stay blogging! <3
