Today is day 15 of the NaBloPoMo challenge at BlogHer, the half-way mark, the pinnacle where participants, perched high upon their stories, poems, photos and dreams can nearly see the finish line.
Good luck to you who are continuing this quest. For me, I must withdraw from this “fun” (choke, gag) as it has become nothing short of a major frustration with all the quirks at BlogHer every time I attempt to log in or post something. This morning, I thought I’d give it another try, to log in and unbelievably, I was allowed in!! “Yipee,” or so I thought.
I copied and pasted the html code from this, my WP blog, to each individual day on BlogHer. At BlogHer, there is no way to back-date, so I just wrote in each title, “Day ‘X’ – NaBloPoMo…” As I mentioned already, this was somewhat time consuming, but, I finished it. I was able to get all of my posts, posted and it looked like it saved. GREAT!
I set about the rest of my day while entertaining thoughts of what I would write on this, the 16th day of NaBloPoMo. I had thought about writing how I discovered that once cancer presents itself to someone, it means there are other cancer cells in that same body waiting to present themselves too. That thought was a tie with writing about how having cancer has changed some relationships which I thought would last until Hell froze over.
By the time I finished all of my work for the day and headed back to my computer and checked in at BlogHer, I found that I could not log in to my account, AGAIN! Frustrated, like the perfect example of Albert Einstein’s definition for insanity, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”, I did just that, kept trying and trying and trying to login – to no avail, of course.
That is enough insanity for me. I have chosen to join in the NaNoWriMo event, even though it’s half finished and I don’t have a prayer in hell to complete it, it seems less insane to me than trying to participate in an event where their site is as bad as Obama’s health care site with quirks and stalls and crashes.
