I was horrified

To find out that many of you who visit here have not seen my blog the way I intended. I looked at my sitemeter to see how abysmal my numbers had sunk since I haven't been writing. To my surprise they were not lower, but higher. Maybe I should quit writing permanently. Anyway, Miz Robyn had linked my bean recipe. I was curious so I popped over to see if she had said anything complimentary, because I'm not completely immune to ego boosting activities. When I arrived at her site I saw no writing whatsoever except the sidebar items. Odd, I thought. Then, I had the bright idea to try using Firefox rather than Safari. I was able to see her blog. This made me question my own blog, so I went to one of my work computers and . . .

There I saw it. Or didn't see it. My front porch and my lime green chair were not to be seen and my text was improperly formatted with the images. Windows with IE apparently does not work with my blog formatting. Windows with Firefox appears to be fine and all Mac based browsers work. I'm embarrassed because I never thought to check my own site, though I meticulously check my work for others.

I'm sorry so many of you have looked at a white screen for a year and a half. I'll get to work and change my look or repair the finicky code as soon as I get the chance.

I'm one of the people who clicked over from Robyn's site. I love your stories and pictures. I live in Oregon and spend most days behind a desk at a computer doing taxes and business consulting so it's a lovely diversion to get a chance to view your garden and a glimpse into your life. Thanks for sharing!

Melinda, I'm glad you clicked over. I've been behind that desk before the advent of computer entertainment. I feel your pain.

Thanks for reading!

Uh, I'm not the most computer-literate girl on the block, but I use windows and IE and I've never had a problem reading your blog. That from a windows 98 and XP.

Did you see the porch in the background to the top left?

I have seen your porch all along, though I like the new makeover!

I'm not finished. The children want The Yellow Dog in the picture at the top and I find it difficult to stop.

Frankie said...

Yes, I saw the porch. I loved it.

I love your new design as well.

I'm glad it was not as bad as I thought. I checked four different computers with Windows XP and IE6 and didn't see my porch. I over reacted, I suppose.
