Update on new site:
Those of you who have visited the new and improved Chubby Chatterbox now realize it hasn’t been improved much. I expected a few glitches along the way, and sure enough there are. My web designer is addressing the issue of leaving comments that aren’t microscopic, but the biggest problem is with Google. The Google Friend Connect (where folks join to become members) is no longer transferable. Without telling anyone, Google cancelled the ability to move this feature to another site. It seems you’re all being held captive. This leaves my designer scrambling for a way to transfer my members without losing them. I’m told this could take seven to fourteen days. Until this is done, none of my members will receive posts from me on the new site.
Soooooo…what to do? I could keep quiet for a week or two (yeah—like that’s an option!) or I could move home until the issues with the new site are resolved. An easy decision—I’m moving back home. I feel like a runaway who only got a few blocks before hightailing it home, or a college student returning to Mom and Dad with a sack of dirty laundry and a report card covered in “F”s.
On the bright side, on Thursday I’m hosting fellow blogger PT Dilloway. PT is launching his exciting new novel A Hero’s Journey. Now I can be sure of doing a proper job without the uncertainties the new site might have caused. I’ll be sure to let you all know where to find me the next time I run away. Sorry about the confusion.
