Panic Attack...

On Saturday morning I came downstairs, made coffee and settled down at the computer. I typed in my blog address - for some reason I have never added it to favorites OR my desktop. It opened and then I got this box on the screen saying that "Internet Explorer cannot open http//www.eirerules.blogspot.com Action aborted".At this stage I was not too worried, but as I started investigating the cause and I discovered that Kirstin had changed all my information - overriding it with hers when she tried to create her own blog. To say that I came close to heart failure is not an exaggeration, I thought of all those posts, MY DIARY - the people who email me saying that they are enjoying my blog, my family and friends and I was UPSET.
I started changing all the information back, hoping it would fix the problem but still the same ugly message glared at me every time I logged on. I deleted Kirstin's blog from my dashboard (she had only done 1 short post)- still NOTHING. I could only access my dashboard via my other blog (the neglected NY one...) and finally noticed that the warning came up while trying to download the sitemeter...I removed it from my blog and could finally breathe again when it all opened!

In the meantime, you have sabotaged poor Kirstin's attempt at blogging!

LOL - Hello Grandad, awesome to here from you. Yep, poor Kirstin... but I did copy her post and saved it in a word document so all is not really lost, and I will be keeping my beady eye on her when she tries again!!!

Mmm I see little Kirsty bear is making a habit of this.... first your favourite show, then your blog!!! LOL, - but please do give me her blog address as well so that I can visit her there and see what else she is up to!

I will help Kirstin set up her blog and I will email you the address. I might make the blog invitation only - but will add you to the list. Jess is the one who deletes my fave shows!!!

Sorry Kirstin..... wrongly accused you.. maybe they are in cahoots?

Natalie said...

mmmm...you may be right! Will keep my eye on them two...I have signed Kirstin up for a pvt blog - sent you an email invitation.
