what a dope. I have to laugh...

So- Since I last posted I have despaired of ever being able to post again.
I could not sign in to my blog. I could see it if I went to it but when I would sign in I would be told I had no blog yet and then be invited to start one.

Aiyeeee- I thought I might wind up being bald from ripping my hair out.

I went to blogger help and forums repeatedly. I asked questions, followed advice. I emptied caches and cookies and restarted. I filled out forms to have account information emailed to me which never came. I did this at least 4 times. I signed out and signed in to each of my other email accounts to see if I had actually used a different email....All to no avail.

Finally I realized I was going to have to start over- but I just couldn't give up.

But wait- what was that about other email...
For some reason, just as I was reconciled to the fact that I was going to have to start again I had some vague recollection that maybe I had created a new email account specifically for this blog. I thought about it for a few minutes, tried to use some logic- and voila!

What a dope!
So now I am back and even though it took a couple of months I hope to be actually getting the hang of this blog thing. I have to fill out my profile soon I guess- and make contact with other bloggers again.
If anyone is out there, I'll see you soon.
The image is from a journal entry LAST July! Hope to post current July journal pages too- IF I ever get re-started.


  1. If you have a laptop and want help with anything.....feel free to come by the store....the email I have for you keeps coming back undeliverable....come by and I would be glad to answer any questions about blogger for you.....I learned the same way you did....after a while it will be just have to find your way!

  2. Hi Geralyn!
    I didn't even see this- I guess I thought it would be emailed to me.
    My first comment!

    Thanks so much.

    I finally figured out that I was trying to sign in with the wrong email address.

    As soon as the heat wave breaks again I'll venture out.
    I've been wanting to come by and say "hey."
    Hope the shop is doing fabulously and you are staying cool.
