What up, blog monsters!
So, the mission was to say, hi, and digitally shake hands with others who either write or read and review YA novels, especially those who are into YA sci-fi & fantasy. So I went nuts following bloggers, left, right, and caddiwompus. Then when I went to my notification settings to make sure I get people’s posts, but not by email, I was surprised to discover that WordPress bumped quite a few of the blogs I’ve been following for a long time off of my list of followed blogs. I searched for them and re-followed them and thought the problem was solved. To my annoyance, when I checked my list of the followed, most of the re-follows weren’t there. So it was back to looking them up, and to my further annoyance, it said I wasn’t following them. I tapped the “follow” buttons again. I checked my list of followed blogs, and it was the same crap. This back and forth re-following and list checking went on a few more times. WordPress, it seemed, would not let me follow certain people.
I hope that my re-following of those blogs multiple times didn’t show up in those people’s notifications and make me look like a psychotic fan. Like I’m desperate to get their attention. (I’m following you… Hello, I’m following you… Eh’hem, excuse me, I’m following you… I am Bia motha’ fuckin’ Bella Baker, and I’m FOLLOWING YOU… Acknowledge me!… Acknowledge me!… Or I’ll find out where you live! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!) If anyone I follow-stalked reads this, I swear, I’m not a psychotic fan. I’m a normal fan. So no need to double check your locks, or to be on the look out for what’s behind you.
This not being able to stay following certain people wasn’t fair. Christa follows about a thousand blogs. How come I’m limited to only a little over a hundred? I suspected that maybe WordPress has a limit to how many blogs you can follow if you’re on the free plan. I assumed Christa was on a paid plan, since she does digital marketing, but when I asked her about whether or not if WordPress has following limitations, she said no. Come to find out, she’s on a free plan too. However, she did explain to me about Twitter having a glitch when people follow over a certain amount. You could only follow a hundred people within the same day. If you reach a hundred, you have to wait twenty-four hours before you could follow more. Perhaps WordPress has that same glitch?
I’ll keep checking my list and re-following people, if they’re not back on it yet. And if they’re not, I’m gonna find out where the people who run WordPress live. Cuz I’m Bia motha’ fuckin’ Bella Baker. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Love you all! Post you soon!
