A few quick things

Why was I blogging whilst drunk?
I don’t have a lot of time before I have to start getting ready for work but I wanted to explain myself. I came home last night and turned Shiobhan (pronounced Shiv-on), my laptop, because I wanted to send the girls a message letting them know I got home safe from our night out at Dakota Tavern. My iGoogle page lists my most recent emails in gmail and I noticed a message from xBen Bardenx. Well, I had to check it out because he doesn’t email me often so I knew it had be to of some importance!

Turns out my favicon code had messed up my rss feeds. As Layne says in this tutorial, you have to be very careful before editing your files because any little thing can mess up the code. So anyway, I thought I was smart because I attempted to fix it last night. Bad idea. lol Long story short, I woke up this morning and found it in 5 seconds but only because I used the The W3C Markup Validation Service. Of course I don’t recommend that you use this if you’re not familiar with any sort of coding at all. But if you feel comfortable in your ability to back up your site, and use this to fiddle around with your site. Then by all means. But I am not saying you should use this service, ok? Ok! ;P

After I fixed that problem, I’ve actually discovered a whole slew of errors on this page so I’m going to have to spend some time fixing it but for now, since it’s running smoothly on the outside it’ll have to wait.

Entrecard inbox changes
I’m going to go ahead and assume that everyone that comes by here found me through xentrecardx, and not bother explaining what it is. But if you click on the link, it will take you the website when you can read more about it.

How does everyone feel about the changes (mostly suggested by xBen Bardenx) to their Entrecard inbox? I think it’s amazing! I used to log on at different times of the day to make sure I caught mostly everyone that dropped their card on me so that I could comply with my ‘u drop, i follow” membership but now I no longer have to! I can come in at one point in the day and do it all! Weee!!

Feeling Burnt out
Doncha worry, I’m not referring to blogging. I’m sure you can assume what I’m talking about. I don’t want to spell it out because news about my blog has spread to quite a few people in my physical world… but I just hope that something new comes my way soon because I’m really not liking the way my attitude is changing. I’m fighting hard to stay positive because I really don’t want to give anyone any ammunition against me, but everyday gets harder by the second.

I’ve sent out a lot, but haven’t gotten any replies. I hope I hear from someone soon… keep your fingers crossed for me will ya?

  1. Beeker – lol it was only frustrating for me because I was trying to be smart and put it in my main blog header file rather than my theme’s header file. I guess it doesn’t like that. lol Yes I like the fact that you can see how many times someone has dropped on you.. 🙂

    Monique – lol I’ll say, I’m sure you were dying to get back to entrecarding.. haha thanks for the hugs & fingers crossed 🙂 *hugs* right back at ya!

    Ben – What can I say? lol it was nice chatting with you earlier!

    Peri – Agreed!! What send outs are you talking about though? lol thanks 🙂 I have yet to find a theme that will allow me to use the logo in a tasteful way.

    Jillian – I agree! I started dropping backwards and I got so frustrated because it seemed never ending that I just stopped and went to my bookmarked entrecards and dropped that way. I’m trying to stay positive!! I am!! lol

  2. I like the new changes in Entrecard. I don’t like the hundred pages of inbox history. It would be nice if they broke it down by dates relative to my timezone, then I’d know for sure who dropped in a day. I can view my inbox from my reader, but I dunno… I think some cards still fall through the cracks. Sometimes I get people in my reader that never showed up in my inbox and vice-versa. Strange.

    And I hope you stay positive!

  3. The new inbox in Entrecard kicks butt!

    I thought I was supposed to get one of those send-outs? Nice favicon BTW.

  4. I looooooooove the changes to Ecard. Of course it would have helped me earlier on the week while I was away, but whatever, at least they finally implemented it.

    My favicon gave me such problems, and I am not sure why… but man was it annoying!

  5. Installing my favicon was probably one of the most frustrating things I have done for my blog. I love the changes to Entrecard. It was such a pain because my inbox would fill up and I wouldn’t know who was dropping. I love having the larger inbox and also Iike that we can see how many times someone has dropped on our widget.
