I have just been able to add “JetPack” to my blog, which is a bundle of features offered by WordPress, the open-source blogging tool that makes ninedarkmoons.com possible. JetPack will streamline my blog and make things MUCH tidier behind the scenes [not to mention making it snow during the Christmas season!]. Basically instead of having to download separate plugins [add-on software] to track statistics, kill spam, handle email subscriptions, etc., it’s all handled under the umbrella of JetPack.
When I first started my blog last August, WordPress kept prompting me to connect to JetPack, but I couldn’t. There was a glitch affecting random blogs, preventing JetPack and WordPress from talking to each other. Some people with 2 WordPress blogs even reported they could connect to JetPack with one but not the other. Totally random. Apparently the glitch has been fixed, at least for me, and I can finally connect to JetPack and take advantage of it’s amazing features.
Long story short, I would like to humbly ask if the 3 people that have subscribed to my blog via FeedBurner [the email subscription service I’ve used up until now] can please re-subscribe using the *NEW* SUBSCRIBE button to the right… you don’t have to, but I’d like to remove FeedBurner from my site at some point. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience! This is definitely a “new blog” kind of hiccup…
Also, for my family members that have emailed me via my blog [I don’t even know how you do that!] I just found your emails yesterday, so I’m sorry I never replied! You can always leave comments directly on my blog instead of emailing me – there’s a much higher probability I will see your wonderful messages 🙂
