Hey all! After releasing the site on the 1st, I know that some of you have been experiencing technical difficulties, so I wanted to cover those here, and give you some updates as to those and other matters.
I know that a few of you were having trouble with the navigation bar. Well, after contacting Studio Press (which is the company the blog theme is from), I think I have the matter fixed. I’ve tested the site in all the prominent browsers (Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari), and I know that it works and functions well in those browsers. However, if you are continuing to experience technical difficulties, first, try emptying your cache (found under “History” in most browsers). If that doesn’t work, then please contact us via our contact form with the browser you are using, and the problem that you are facing with the site. That would be so helpful if you would! Thanks in advance! We want to make your experience at BFS as enjoyable and fuss-free as possible, so don’t hesitate to tell us any technical difficulties you may have.
Now the next issue I wanted to update you all on was following us with Bloglovin’: I have contacted Bloglovin’ as to updating the site URL, though nothing has happened as of yet. We are trying to work around this issue as gracefully as possible, and have come up with a few alternatives for following us until Bloglovin’ updates our blog URL:
- Check back independent of any following platform until Bloglovin’ updates us. I know that this is definitely the biggest hassle of an option, but if you want to continue being updated on what we are posting, you can just check back independently.
- Sign-up via email. At the end of the comment form is a little check-box that you can check to receive email updates once we post. You can sign up via that if you wish.
- Follow us on our other Bloglovin’ account. Ok, so this is going to get confusing. Bloglovin works like a search engine, in that when a new blog is published into the web, it automatically registers it in its site, and you can start following it. That doesn’t mean that it’s been claimed yet, it’s just there for you to follow if you want. Well, that’s what happened when we published this site. Some of you entered our URL into bloglovin, found our new blog, and started following us! (I am still really tickled about this 😉 ) Ok, so if you want to continue receiving updates from us via Bloglovin’ until they finally do update our old blog’s URL, then you can follow us via this link: Follow my blog with Bloglovin. If enough of you follow us with that link, then we may just nix trying to get Bloglovin’ to update our old link, and stick with the new link. It’s up to your response, really 🙂
UPDATE: It would appear the Bloglovin’ has updated all of our old followers to the new blog! Yay! Please click here to follow us on Bloglovin’!
Alright, the third item I wanted to cover was the HWWV for the Holidays Contest Winners: We sent all of you an email yesterday, though some of you have yet to respond. If you could please do so, that would be wonderful, so that we can confirm that you received it. If you have not received an email yet, then please check your junk folder, or if it is not there, then shoot us a message via our contact form. Thanks!
That’s all I have today! Thanks so much for sticking with us through this move. It’s been a bit more stressful than I was anticipating, but I know we’ll get all the kinks worked out eventually 🙂
