This pretty sums up my week:
I've honestly had so many things going on and everything has been so completely awful, so this has just been an annoyance that I can't even deal with right now. Long story short, I got a lot of really, really bad news this week that I don't feel like going into because I could write a whole post on even just ONE of any of the things that have happened. Really, this blog just isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. But it kind of feels like it you know? This is the place I go to blow off some steam when I'm stressed out, where I get to talk about all the AWESOME things that I've gotten to read, and I get to talk to a lot of really interesting people, and it's supposed to be fun! Trying to figure out why it isn't working and is doing some other weird stuff in general just really makes me feel like not blogging. I have been so absent from everything to do with blogging, and it's not because I need a break...it's because when it requires so much effort to even find a way to respond to comments on my own blog it's an added stress I really can't handle right now.
I've just posted my second request for someone to help out on the blogger forums...because guess what? Yeah. The only way you get any help with these blogs is from the kind souls of other people going onto the forums to help out. There's no way to contact google (that I know of) and ask them what the bleep they did to my blog! So far no one has been able to help. If any of you are tech savvy at all and are interested in seeing what's going on, here's the link.
I've thought about trying to move to Wordpress - I've even made an account and got a website name and whatnot...but I just don't get it. I hate that there's so little ability to customize without paying, and while it might not sound like a lot of money...I don't have any to spare. And I can't seem to figure out how to get anything I want to happen without paying...and I find Wordpress kind of overwhelming in general haha, but that's bound to happen anyway. I could try and just create a new website on Blogger, but that seems kind of dumb since the whole problem is a Blogger thing anyway.
So basically, since I don't want to just whine on for a whole post...any advice? I know a lot of you use Wordpress - did any of you do it without paying to customize it? How'd you make it work?
The only idea I've had so far is to post a ton of things and if it's a broken script on one of my posts maybe all this will go away? So expect a lot of posts. (And probably not a solution to the links haha this doesn't sound like a logical approach. BUT WHATEVER. I need to do something. And I have a ton of ARC reviews I need to put up anyway. SO THERE.)
P.s. On the off chance you want to comment anywhere on the blog...you have to right click to open the post in a new window. Or at least it's the quickest way I've figured out. Yep. Fun times.
P.p.s. In new news...MY BLOG IS PLAYING ADS. I can hear the music but I can't see where it is coming from, but it's DEFINITELY from my site. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
