It’s one of those days maturity plays a big role in perspective. A little while ago, I wrote about my follower count breaking 200. It looked like a large jump, and I didn’t ask myself if it looked a little…strange. When I previewed a post, I noticed the count plummeted to 23. Any person, even those battle-hardened by the ‘net, would ask themselves Do I suck? It turned out my blog wasn’t the only one to have this rather interesting problem. WordPress had a bug in its ‘Publicize’ featured inflating the numbers. When the cache cleared, the numbers went down to nearly nothing, I unplugged and re-plugged publicized as instructed, with things now returning to a reasonable number. In order to get better content-wise, I need an audience.
Bringing us to error numero deux, or duh in my case.
I scheduled a new Midweek Geekiness about The Walking Dead. Problem: Entry not quite done yet, and someone I knew very well linked to my post for her entry. I went back to add a bit more to the post, and simply left it as best I could. It released, half completed, at 8 am therefore ready for linking. In the end I had to laugh.
The evolution continues…
