OH BOY......DID I MAKE A MESS OF MY BLOGGING EXPERIENCE........................




O.K......shuffle on over here on your pretty little feet and hear about my most recent blogging dilemma.  I have only the most rudimentary technological knowledge.  I often refer to myself as a Ticonderoga #2 in a word perfect world.  For those of you who are too young to know what a Ticonderoga #2 is.....it is a simple pencil.

Anyway, the other day I attempted to log into my blog and alas, I could not get into it in my usual manner.  Brad, my husband, was out golfing so I could not ask the computer wiz for help.  Anyway, after feeling totally helpless....I started clicking on things and somehow ended up at Google having to sign in with a password.  Of course, couldn't remember my password so I entered a very old one from years ago.  Alas....that event made even more of a mess of things.  I created a whole new blog....WHICH OF CORSE I DID NOT WANT..

Frustration set in as I had to leave for an appointment and could not fix the MESS.


Decided to leave it another day and after a restful nights sleep woke with renewed vigor



to attempt to fix this problem.  

Viola'.   I did it this morning by sitting calmly and figuring out where I needed to go to remedy this situation.  

It worked.....I did it.....and was able to get into my old blog and delete the new blog that I had no intention of setting up in the first place.

Just had to rant and rave a little this morning and pat this little old gal on the back for figuring this out all on her own.

So there.....

  2. I have a problem with Blogger and Google also. I tried to make a comment on another's blog and it told me that I had to enter my Google name and password. I should have gotten out right then because I never had to do that before. Unfortunately, I followed instructions and when asked which e-mail account to use, I chose one of the two that they displayed. Now, instead of being able to comment as my Blogger identity, it is Comment as: Google Account. My comments then look like they are publishing but never appear. Thankfully, I can comment on my computer as my Blogger Name, Starting Over, etc., as it has not changed on that device, but it is a pain in the neck as My Retired Man is always using that. I may have found a fix on line, but am a little nervous to use it as because everything might get worse. I wish I had my old brain, that worked so mush better also.

  3. Sounds much like me. I'm at a total loss with computer problems and it seems the more I mess around, the worse it gets. Glad to see you got it straightened out.

  4. Brilliant.... you sound like me. I find if I get myself in a muddle I have to walk away and do something else, then when my mind is free, I can return to what I originally wanted to do.
    I have been away from blogging during the summer and I notice since I have returned that Google are changing things. Friends who used to comment on my blog are unable to... yes because I changed to Google + a few years ago....drats... I thought I was keeping up with things.
    I'm glad to hear everything worked out and you were able to access your blog once again.
    Enjoy your day.... we have glorious sunshine today, which is very odd for this time of year.
    Best Wishes
