My Final Update On WordPress
So hopefully this is my final update on WordPress and this situation has been resolved. Well, as resolved as can be. Know that I feel like I can finally breathe, let me tell you the whole story about my day. Well half of it I guess.
The Uno Reverse Card
With the responses I was getting with my situation, I quickly realised that this was going nowhere. And I got the feeling that the issue was never going to really be resolved. Or at least it wasn’t going to be resolved as quickly as I prefer.
So, I did sone research and decided that the best thing to do was just abandon that account. Which is what I did today. I moved everything from that account to a new wordpress.com account I created.
I’ve Got 99 Problems
Of course, the move didn’t go smoothly. Why would it? Has anything related to WordPress gone smoothly in years? But for some reason the Universe was kind enough to give me a really helpful Happiness Engineer. We were on the chat for hours (literally) trying to figure everything out but he stayed with me and helped. Shoutout to Jeff- don’t know if that’s his real name but whomever it was really helped. I know, I was shocked too. Usually, I get nothing from them. I was so anxious that I would lose everything, I was sitting like this in front of my computer:
Now, pretty much everything is fixed. The only issue I am having is that since it’s a new blog I have to refollow everyone I was following on my old account. And since WP has a limit on how many blogs you can follow in an hour, I have to do it slowly. I tried to use the import/export feature but it didn’t work. So, I have to somehow do it manually which is soooo annoying and will take me a few days. BUT, once I’m done with that I will be back to blogging like normal. Yay!
So, if you see that you’re being followed by my new account don’t freak out. It’s not someone stealing my blog or identity. Although, I guess if I was doing that, that’s exactly what I would say… jk. It’s just little old me. I don’t think I’m important enough for anyone to want to steal my blog.
Overall, I am grateful that eventually the move worked out okay. Am I going to stay on WordPress? No, I’m pretty sure I’m still moving to self-hosted. I just needed to buy myself some more time which is why I moved to a new wordpress.com account. Now I can move to self-hosted when I am ready.
So, that’s it for my final update. Which I hope will be the final update. If you received an email for this, please let me know in the comments section. And if I don’t follow you on this account also let me know. I know I haven’t even caught up on the comments on the last two posts but I will. And I’ll catch up with your blog posts too. You have my word.
