housekeeping

I've heard from a few people lately that they can't get to this blog. Some of the problems are with Blogger, some seem to be random, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it (I'm trying). Of course, if they can't get here they can't see this... hmmm. I may need to rethink this.

But for future reference: the best URL for this website is


You might have something else bookmarked. You do have this bookmarked, right? And you're following it with an RSS reader, and with Google Friends, and -- brand new! -- on Twitter, right?

Right?

Hello?

Sigh.

WooHoo! I can see again! I can see! It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi ...

Sorry. Where was I?

Sara - turns out the issue was on my end. Seems some browsers get all picky for no reason and need to either be given a time-out or replaced with one that plays well with others.

I hope you get your issues cleared up too.

Cheers!

Oh, Sara, all that technology talk makes my head spin! Will you keep sending me weekly fliers in the mail of your "lovely listings"? They are much better than the crappy, boring mailers I get from my local real estate agents.

I have the correct address in my favorites but still get bounced around almost every day the first and second time I try. I keep trying throughout the day and eventually I get to you. I never give up but it had me wondering what the problem is. I LOVE this blog.

I'm here! I'm here! I follow you with Google reader. I love your site, and my entire family laughs and occasionally scratches their heads at what you find.

Google reader is reading you just fine...

I've been having this issue too - turns out Blogger is having problems redirecting people from Blogspot subdomains to custom URLs. I'm told they are working out a solution, but in the meantime, no fun for us!

I'm updating you in my Reader right this very second.

I'm here! It took a little messing around with addresses, but I just Had to get back to see more horrifying RE listings! Thank you for this wonderful blog! And our Realtor suggested maybe it should be required for every Realtor. Hehe! I think he's right! Thanks!!!

Ooooooh! following on teh twitter now!

Because you're hosted on Blogger, you're automatically blocked in a number of countries around the world, including Turkey.

Every time I go to Turkey I have to remember that the government is blocking "It's Lovely" and "I Can Has Cheezburger?" for my own good.

Oooh, I see Chair is in the tiny thumbnaily thingy on my favorites list and beside the URL now, too!

You're totally bookmarked on my computer, and my boyfriends! Have been for awhile. Love it!

You need to have a trusted web-guru person figure out how to make http://lovelylisting.com work. I shouldn't need to have the www. part to make it work. That might be a big part of people's problems.

Sara said...

You're right, Jared. It was working until recently, but then died. I'm trying...

Great to hear about the Twitter account--just followed ya!

I've heard of people having issues with Blogger when they start getting heavy traffic on their blogs. Best of luck! Let me know if I can help with anything. You're one of my all time favorite blogs; I'm here about every day.

By the way, I have a lot of clients in the real estate industry and while most of them are good at what they do, I think your blog should be required reading at Realtor training schools.

Sara said...

It's looking like the problems are on Google's end -- there are a lot of unhappy bloggers out there right now...

Sara said...

Whelp, http://lovelylisting.com should be working now, and the old blogspot address should be forwarding (albeit after an annoying and inaccurate message from Blogger). So if you can't read this, let me know.

I really enjoy your blog. I was on the phone with my sister and she mentioned a one room cabin in Alaska her step-daughters family of six lived in. I told her, "Have I got a link for you!" She is going to love it. I have had no problems with my bookmark.

THE ZOO said...

i had that issue. its odd all this time i could get here thru my saved link but as of last week i had to google the site.

Missy said...

My original bookmark was: http://lovelylisting.blogspot.com/
that re-directed me to:
http://www.lovelylisting.com/, so now I have the 'new' bookmark.

I was having the same issues, suddenly, with almost half the blogs I cruise daily. All I did was switch to Foxfire and: problem solved!
