Letters of Intent-2/19/10

Letters of Intent

Dear Julie,

This one's for you!

Your loyal blog friend who is trying to help out when you are not feeling so well!

Dear Blogger

To start, let me tell you how much I love and depend on my Blog Roll! It is an invaluable tool that I use every day to keep track of all of my bloggy friends. So please try to understand my distress when i realized my posts were not updating on my friend's blog rolls.

When I publish a new post I would like my friends to be made aware of it immediately. Some of my posts are feeling neglected because they are not receiving their proper recognition before I publish another post.

I have visited the "Help" section and found that there are many other blogs experiencing this same situation and there is even a special Thread just for this problem. 

I am afraid my bloggy friends probably think I am stalking them because I show up on their BlogFrog widget every 30 minutes checking their Blog Roll to see if my post has updated yet!

Okie Dokie! Go, NOW, to Foursons to examine more Letters of Intent!

*update: This post updated IMMEDIATELY on Brandi's blog. Perfect! Luckily I have already confessed to stalking her blog so she is used to seeing my face on her Blog Frog widget!

How odd!

Pam said...

OH NO!!! Come to think of it...I have not seen an update for you in a while. I wonder why it's doing that. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Rachel said...

You are such a trooper for staying up and posting this to cheer up Julie!

I have been having the same trouble with Blogger... it's no fun! Sorry!

Have a great Friday!

Shell said...

I always feel like I need to explain why I show up on someone's blogfrog thing! LOL

Glad it's working for you now.

Dear blogfrog thingy, WHY must you stretch my pic out so that I look so wide in that pic? Seriously, I chose that pic for a reason and it's that I looked thin in it. But, you take it and stretch it out and make me sad.

Kmama said...

Hmm. Now I need to go to your home page (not the permalink) and see if I've missed some.

LOL at Shell's comment. I never noticed until she brought it up!

Brandi said...

Yes... I've actually gone in search of a few blog friends who I thought hadn't posted (which would be odd for them) only to find out I've missed a couple of their posts! Frustrating!

I like the BF widget... except when I don't expect it to be on someone's blog. Especially if I'm checking out a new blog and didn't plan on leaving a comment. Makes me feel all stalkerish, like when you're peeking out your window spying on the neighbors and they catch you. Well, ya know, not that I do that. ;)

Foursons said...

Wow- I think you may have just bumped yourself to the #1 spot on my list of favorite bloggers! Take heed all you other bloggers- it IS a competition to make me love you the most! (In case you weren't aware)

I've had that problem with blogger too. They need to get on the ball and straighten things out.

Thanks for linking up, you made me feel so much better despite the hacking that my body insists on doing!

Michelle Hoad said...

I have a love/hate relationship with Blogger. I love that it allows me to blog for free, but I hate that it messes up so frequently. I currently can't see my friends list. What a pain in the rear.

that is such a bummer! blogger acts wacky sometimes!

Shana said...

Wow, i had no idea this was happening. I was wondering where some people had went. I also don't think mine updates all the time. I also have left comments on people's blogs and I go back alter and read other comments and mine is not there. Weird.

I'm NOT a VOLCANO! said...

LOL- being new to blogging, I don't have ANY idea what a blog roll is. But if it were ME you checked on every 30 minutes, I'd be thinking you just really liked my blog. LOL. Now following from Foursons.

Danielle said...

I always have this trouble. Only with certain blogs though. Weird. Hope it gets resolved.

I have an award for you

Emmy said...

I have been having problems all of the sudden too. Some of the blogs I follow, will show up and then I will realize their last two posts did not show up.. It has just been the last week or so, so I am hoping it is temporary and fixed soon

Emily said...

Weird. I haven't had that issue yet...hope it gets resolved soon!

He & Me + 3 said...

Blogger is crazy sometimes. I haven't missed any posts...have I? I better go back and check. You are sweet writing a letter to Julie. I hope she feels better soon too:)

Screwed Up Texan said...

Oh, I've been having this problem for a LOOOOOONG time. Here is what works for me: Go into Google Reader and force update your blog. Just click on your blog name and hit refresh. As much as a pain in the butt it is to do every time, I hope that works for you!

Blogger Help Sucks!

Shannon said...

It is a bummer when there's a glitch here in blogland! Hope it gets resolved for you very soon!

Ashley T said...

I have that trouble too at least once a week. I think its just really slow. I hope for your sake (and mine) they fix it quickly!

Stopping by from the Foursons.

Mama Zen said...

I've noticed the slow update, too!

Clueless_Mama said...

Yeah, I am having the same thing happen as well. I want you to put feedburner on your site so I can subscribe by email. I love your site:)

Kari @ p.s. said...

Has happened to me! And, also the ones I follow aren't showing up on mine! Grrr. Then, if I'm not paying attention, I don't go visit them often and it seems like I'm ignoring them and they end up hating me. Sigh. Technology isn't nice sometimes.

Kim said...

Interesting! Not sure if I had the problem. Mine is probably user error :). To be honest I have just been hopping to my favorite blogs to the left of blog roll because that way I only see the ones I really want to and can go back later and scroll through the others. Good luck figureing it out!
