“I’m not kidding, Charlene. My blog was there one minute and gone the next.”
“No way. Now what?”
“I’ve had so many problems with my blog. Yesterday, I contacted ProsePress, and they had an engineer look at the coding. Apparently, there was a ghost in the machine.”
“It’s complicated, but a ghost in the machine refers to the virtual consciousness of a dead person who exists inside a computer and interacts with the outside world.”
“So, the ghost made your blog disappear?”
“Yup. So, I bought a new computer, and I’ve not had any blog problems since!”
Seriously, I’ve had my share of blog woes lately. I think WP did another upgrade because most of the blocks don’t work (like the Kindle book block), which works on the Chrome browser, but not on FireFox. Safari is so slow, I can’t use it for blogging at all.
I’m sticking with this theme for now. Every theme has something wrong with it in one way or another. It’s the most frustrating thing I’ve ever seen. The new themes don’t have headers or widgets, so they aren’t meant for blogging. I’m not sure what they are good for.
Eventually, I’ll move over to the WP business plan with better themes. But that is down the road. ❤️
