Where have my Subscription Posts Gone?

Where have my subscription posts gone? Did I miss a WordPress Daily Challenge to NOT blog?  Ridiculous!   Did all of my blogging buddies take a Cruise? Vacation? Sabbatical? Retire? Go Fishing? Possibly.  But even if they did they would be blogging about it.  Something is amiss.  The posts of the blogs I follow are not updating.   It all began about the time Hurricane Lee arrived on the East Coast.  So at first I thought it was storm related.  After evaluating the situation and looking at the bloggers I follow and where they reside in the world I decided it was definitely not related to the storm. 

After much thought and initial denial I have come to the conclusion that my blog has a bug.  It is the strangest thing this blog bug I’ve contracted.  Here are the symptoms:

  • Blog Buddy Post Withdrawals
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Delayed Gratification
  • Double Vision
  • Email Inbox Bloating

Self medication only made matters worse. 

Here’s what’s been happening:

Over 2 weeks ago your daily posts stopped appearing under my follow tab.  I had no way of keeping up with my blogging buddies.  I decided to change the email notification from never to instantly.  And instantly each of your subscriptions doubled in the “blogs I follow” list.  Then as some of the posts began to show up(several hours after they were posted and some not at all) under the follow tab they were doubled.  There were two of every post!  So I decided to delete one of the subscriptions and Voila you were gone again…So I started the process all over.  I would go to each of your blogs and re-follow hoping that because I was starting from scratch the problem would correct itself.  Well here I am today a year and half into blogging and I am rebuilding my blog list  by going from blog to blog re-following you one more time. 

It seems as though there are bloggers who have experienced similar problems and their issues have been corrected.  I am still waiting…So I wanted to apologize for what may look like you have a crazy deranged blog stalker visiting and following your blog over and over again. 

I promise to seek some professional help from a friendly blogologist to help me overcome my many blog bug afflictions.

Blog Trouble

My blog trouble started sometime this afternoon.  It was my blog nightmare.  I logged on to my WordPress account and clicked over to see the daily posts waiting for me…

There were no posts. No Posts?  No Posts! 

Now that I think about it, this all started yesterday.  But I thought the lack of posts were due to Hurricane Irene out on the East Coast.   Then this afternoon the only blog posts showing up was the Daily Post from WordPress.  Now I thought… that’s Weird!

Immediately I thought I had inadvertently hidden the posts and began trying to troubleshoot the problem.  That would not be the case. 

As it turns out several bloggers are reporting the same problem.  I should have left well enough alone, but that is not what I did. 

Shortly after reporting the problem I was checking to see if the problem had been fixed.  Now it appeared that all of my Blog subscriptions had doubled.  I began deleting the duplicates.  Thinking I was leaving the original subscriptions the way they were. 

This is when it went from bad to worse.   Now, not only are the posts missing but the blog subscriptions are gone as well.

So I decided to re-follow each of you.  I used my recent posts and your comments to track you down.  Guess what?  Your blog posts are still missing from the list of posts I follow. 

I hope the good people at WordPress get this bug exterminated soon. 

I am missing my blogging family…

  • What type of blogging snafus have you experienced? 
  •  How long did it take to have it resolved? 
  •  Was the support team responsive?
