So… “Life with Arie” is looking a little barren. Why? We blame the internet.
Over the past two weeks something has gone terribly awry with our blog, thanks to various issues that decided to all go caput at once. Our host server did something wonky that caused us to be unable to log in to our dashboard. Once that was remedied, we realized that it had de-activated all of our lovely plugins. While reactivating the plugins, Thesis, our WordPress theme, “took a sh*t and died” as the expression goes, and locked me out of my blog (again) and did a bunch of other things, like delete my header and stylings.
My lovely friend Heather (check out her great radio show, Rubyfruit Radio) is an amazingly tech saavy person, and has been through tears, tirades, and utter confusion with me… with all of those symptoms being my own. Her calm resolve and techie magic have re-enabled my log in and we’re working on the cosmetic issues now. The blog still functions completely, so feel free to comment on any posts you wish to, or to connect with us through our social websites.
Please bear with us as the site goes through a case of the uglies! We hope to get our stylish features back soon!
***UPDATE: It lives! We’re back to our old selves again, and boy does it feel great. Have you had similar blog issues? How did you handle them? Share your pet blogger (or any kind of blogger) techie woes in a comment!
