I was saving this for Saturday, but the events of last night prompted me to use this blogging gem of a comic today. It just made me laugh and I am sure some of you will see yourself/your kids/your grandkids in it :).
So what happened to cause such an uproar that I needed to switch posts because humor was the only thing that was going to get me through the night (and that reminds me of the John Lennon song “Whatever gets you through the night, it’s all right, it’s all right”)? Bloggers, take a deep breath, because this story is your worst nightmare.
I came home from work and began working on InPerspire’s second birthday email (yes, it’s the second set of Lucky Number 7 towels on special for $8). It was taking me a little longer that I had planned, and I was fretting about the time because I still had my post to do and I needed to pick Jimmy up at 11 pm, but everything was okay until I went to our blog to search for a link.
What I saw there sent chills down my spine…my blog looked different, a different format, a different look, in fact, nothing looked like it did when I left it that morning. The entire theme had changed and some widgets were missing. After my initial panic, and a lot of swearing, I checked the WordPress forums and sure enough other bloggers were having the same problem so that made me feel a little better, because, after all, misery does love company. It turns out that WordPress pulled the Cutline Theme many of us were using and replaced it with another one. I am still shaking my head about why anyone would pull a theme without giving a warning? Don’t they know who they are dealing with? We’re bloggers — we’re not that stable — because who, other than someone who is slightly mad, would commit to writing a post every day of the year? It’s sheer lunacy :).
Of course, this is all a bit tongue-in-cheek (kind of), and where did that saying “tongue-in-cheek” come from anyway? Maybe I can write a post about it later this week…
Until I figure out which theme will work best for us, I will use this pretty little gem called Koi.
Roll with the changes today!
