On January 2, 2014, I upgraded from Internet Explorer 8 to 9.
I didn’t realize it until March 27, 2014, but the day I upgraded from 8 to 9 was the day that I started having WordPress problems when I visited other blogs. LIKE buttons and comment boxes would not load, but only on blogs whose URL ended in wordpress.com.
If someone had an upgraded or self-hosted blog with a URL like mine (russelrayphotos2.com), there were no problems.
The ratio of free (wordpress.com) blogs to upgraded/self-hosted blogs (russelrayphotos.com) is about nine to one.
Since I could not interact with bloggers on nine out of ten blogs that I visited, I kind of quit trying. Thus I got about ten months behind in my daily blogging/liking/commenting life.
On March 27, 2014, I upgraded from Internet Explorer 9 to 10. All problems immediately ceased, and I set about catching up on my daily blogging/liking/commenting life. I like to be about 30 days behind, i.e., if you visit me today, I’ll be by to see you in about 30 days. That allows for people who don’t post very often to have at least 30 days in which to publish just one post. Just one!
Sadly, many people that I was following have quit blogging. At one time my Excel spreadsheet had 3,879 links to bloggers that I was following. That is down to 2,460. Over fourteen hundred people have quit!
So for today’s Music on Mondays, I thought we would listen to some songs about how much I miss you.
