I know that it’s been a day or so since I’ve posted.
There’s a good reason for that.
You see, in the wide wonderful world of blogging, there are a lot of different themes or platforms with which to develop or design your blog.
I use one called Weaver Xtreme Plus. To me, there are so many options that one could do anything you wanted to. And they do.
As for me, I’ve used it so much that it’s comfortable. The support is great… it’s easy to use…etc and etc. You get the idea.
I like it a whole lot.
Anyway, for a self-hosted WordPress site; which is what I use, one must have a hosting company. Like themes, there’s a ton of them.
One, is called Bluehost.
Up till 3 days ago, I would have said that it was a decent hosting company. Support is so-so at best but normally, you can get stuff worked out. You just have to have patience (I don’t) and a ‘love’ for explaining things over and over (again I don’t).
A few of the techs are decent. The majority are nincompoops who have a bad habit of talking over you then calling you “rude” for trying to explain the situation. They usually don’t listen and instead try to “fix” things without getting the full picture.
Such was the case three days ago.
I won’t go into the semi-grisly details as it would more than likely get my blood pressure up.
Suffice it to say that two of those nincompoops are ‘special’… as in like Jerry Clower used to say, they are “educated beyond their intelligence”.
They’re probably Liberals too.
What should have been an ‘easy’ fix resulted in a broken site.
In the wide, wonderful world of blogging… that; Bubba, ain’t good.
Let’s just say that in those three days, I went through hosting Hell.
Needless to say, I wasn’t happy…
And it would be a safe bet that I let one or two of them know to a great extent that I wasn’t.
After all this time of me blogging, let’s just say that I’ve learned a few ‘new’ words and the proper usage thereof.
I used a few.
More than once.
It took two phone calls, countless pm’s to the theme developer (it wasn’t a theme issue) and me spending more money than I should have to WP Live before the issue was resolved.
It was a hosting issue.
Idgit headed heathern’s.
So, anyway for now… (or until one of those maniacal, sons of a sweaty swamp rat, does something)…
Look out and hang on…
It’s going to be a heck of a ride.
