Once again, it is time to reflect on the past week and mention to you, my gratitude. What I am thankful for this week?
Before I begin with my list of ten – it has come to my acknowledgement that my blog, or the reader, or my comments, or my feedburner might be broken.
Last week I noticed two strange things in my blogger reader and that was SquaareKat first did not have thumbnails (pictures) listed on the reader and what was listed referred to me as:
“No reply blogger Marisa B @ SquaareKat”
What does that mean - I have no idea, so with great trepidation I set out to learn how to fix it….
The “no reply blogger “thing was an easy fix – it was advised to convert back to blogger original, go to accounts, and click on to the “show email tab” under settings.
Supposedly, what it means is that I cannot reply; or maybe you can’t reply to my comments whether it is on my blog or your blog - that is what I learned, however I don’t think I ever had a problem commenting on any blogs and for the most part I did have responses. So believe me I am confused.
While I was figuring all of this out – I realized that my last post; last week’s Thankful list did not show up on Bloglovin …hmm somehow, not sure how, I was able to feed it into Bloglovin.
Throughout this process I learned that I have a feedburner listing all my active blogs - yet let me assure you I don’t know what it does, how to work it, or fix it. However, sometime soon I will reactivate the subscription feature on SquaareKat, for now I’m going to leave that feature out.
The last thing I noticed was all the SquaareKat posts in the RSS Reader; all of my posts listed from current posts to posts from 11 months ago did not have pictures and referred to me as “no reply blogger”. When I clicked on it, I was directed to the blog with no problems.
Yet I did notice that posts listed on the reader 12 months ago and back, even though the thumbnail is shown and I am listed as “Marisa B @ SquaareKat when I clicked on that it takes me to a feedburner broken page.
Nevertheless, I was able to link to those posts from SquaareKat without any problems it’s not working or linking from the reader list. Not sure, what is going on, I posted a test post, on Friday night the post did not show up in the reader until the next morning – yet it did show up in Bloglovin right away.
This morning the thumbnails are back… I am not a “no reply blogger” anymore and the rest I can live with for now. However I am wondering if my posts are being seen and read; I posted a few in the last two or three weeks which I thought were interesting, funny, informative and thought provoking or so I thought without much responses or comments.
I’m wondering if my blog is broken and I am only seen when I link up with the Thankfuls each week.
Anyway, I will figure this out …hopefully.
Here are my thankfuls:
It was Mother’s day last week -
My kids made me a delicious brunch of pancakes, orange juice, and coffee.
A gift to a spa for a facial and massage - can you hear me sing Ahhhh!
This gorgeous pump
I bought it at DSW – it’s for a Communion on Saturday, found it in the clearance section and I can wear it anytime; work, going out. I have not had a pump in a long time.
James home safe and sound - his school had a class trip to Philadelphia (8th grade trip) no parents.
He had a great time but I was worried.
Dad dropped off Kaiser Rolls, Italian loaves of bread, and hero rolls too. So much bread that we gave some to our neighbor around the corner.
Tonight I am making sloppy joes – inspired because of the Kaiser Rolls ; everything else in the freezer, if I need any bread during the week - all I need to do is wrap what I need in foil, pop it in the oven for less than 5 minutes and we have warm bread with our meal.
Bread available this week.
My eyes are healing nicely.
Evening Primrose Oil
I am feeling so much better because of this wonderful vitamin.
That is it for now - what are you thankful for…
