Yesterday, I wrote a short post to let my readers know that I was experiencing some trouble with my site, and that I wasn’t sure of the ramifications or the extent of the time necessary for corrections. Just now, after I sat like a nervous “biddie” (“broody”) hen over my computer all morning, my “view by country” stats were back up, and I once more was able to see the fascinating places that my readers come from, and how many of you are from each country, and I was also able to stop worrying about other forms of impending blogsite doom that might be in the works.
This post today is a small and totally inadequate “thank-you” to those “19 Happiness Engineers” who’ve been working so hard behind the scenes to restore order to a gazillion people’s websites on all sorts of different issues. They were rapid to respond, and didn’t ask me to do anything I was unable to understand, which isn’t always the case when computer gurus give me instructions, due to the fact that I don’t always use the correct lingo to describe my difficulties, and they speak the language perfectly. Hence the title of my post, from Publius Vergilius Maro, otherwise known as Virgil: “Believe one who has proved it. Believe an expert.” I followed their instructions, and lo and behold! things are working perfectly again! Assuming that all continues to go well, I’ll be writing another literary or “essay” post again soon, on one of my standard topics. And thanks to all those who have continued to be patient with my site, whether experts or readers and fellow bloggers. We all need these humbling lessons of help from our fellows now and then, and I’m just glad mine was of so gentle a nature. See you soon!
