Growing Pains and Apologies

0 Posted by - August 12, 2012 - Announcements

Guys, I just wanted to apologize like whoa for a few things. The blog has grown super fast, which is thrilling and scary, and my IT team (read: my husband) and I are doing all we can to keep up and make the site as functional and fast as we can.

As part of that effort, we installed some caching software today which totally fucked one of my plug-ins and then flooded my Twitter stream with about a hojillion old posts. I am so sorry and completely mortified. Forgive me, Internets. To make matters worse, I didn’t discover it until an hour later because I was taking a nice Sunday afternoon nap. Womp womp. Lesson learned: Bloggers may not nap!

The second thing I want to apologize for is my Pinterest account. I combined my personal and blog accounts about a week ago which lead to flood of repins from my old account to my new account. This was my attempt at “merging” my accounts, since Pinterest doesn’t have an official merge function. So, I inadvertently flooded your Pinterest feed, too. I am teh suck. Sorry!

In any case, this is my apology face (and wacky hair):

If you feel forgiveness in your soul and would like to follow me back on Twitter or Pinterest, I would be forever grateful. Thanks so much for sticking with me through these last few weeks!

    I saw that and immediately blamed robots and internet overlords. No worries 😀

    Hehe, I was taking a nap the same time you were and was quite surprised to wake up to Echofon alerting me to a ton of new Tweets. Not as surprised as you, I’m sure.

    That’s ok! I just assumed you were drunk and feeling like a little self- promotion. I was like “Thats cool. I wish I were that drunk right now”

    For the record, I love this blog so I can forgive you (for things that aren’t even your faulr, ie: pinterest not having a merge button, and taking an hour long Sunday nap, are you kidding me? I don’t even know what day it is most of the time). I hope the awesomeness resumes it’s normal flow for you and your blog. 🙂

    Poof!  You are DEAD to me now!!!JOKING!   I’ve been around since the beginning, Babe.  You and your nap-head can’t scare me off now.  When I needed you most, you made me laugh.  I’m here for the long haul.  Now, go rest.  (Or drink, or pin, or merge, or configure, or whatever the fuck it is wildly successful bloggers do these days.)

    I am responsible for overwhelming your computer whatchamacallit because I send ALL of my friends to this blog.  All of them.  And strangers.  I send strangers, too.  So it’s all my fault.  Please carry on – your amusing posts thrill me to the core.

    Oh psh…I would hope that anybody who follows your blog would be cool enough to kick back and enjoy the craziness in all forms! (I know that may be too much to ask, but do you really want followers who are going to flip out over something so trite as technological difficulties?) We love you.

    The more Pintester, the better for all, if you ask me.  I was delighted to see more of your pins. 😀

    No worries. I’ve been enjoying your blog since I discovered it a few months ago, and I didn’t mind the extra pins. I even re-pinned a few things!

    Ohh, wow. I’m beyond thrilled that my friend passed me the URL to your blog. Freaking hi-lar-ious. I don’t use pinterest much, but when I do, I screw up the recipe/idiot-proof instructions about 90% of the time.
