What? It’s criminal that I missed a day posting? I had issues. Some of them involved cheese.

An issue that didn’t involve cheese was something that broke my blog.

Not for very long though. Ree, who has the same web hosting service that I do, told me about her bandwidth crisis, and I checked my numbers only to find that I was perilously close to doing the same. I immediately sent off an email to Rob, keeper of the web-hosting smoothness. I knew Rob was a great guy because he and I went to geek school together, and I saw his niceness in action. In fact, it was Sunday when I emailed him, and he apologized that it took an hour to get back to me because he was helping a friend move. I don’t know how he found time, what with his volunteer Fire fighter duties and regular job. He told me he had some extra bandwidth this month, and not to worry about paying extra.

If you are thinking about moving to a self-hosted platform, you may want to consider someone who is personally vouched for. Someone who is reasonably-priced, and will solve your problems, even on a Sunday.

And now, to move us completely away from seeing our farts, I received a true blue award from Veronica.

She is in on the big bloggy giveaway, so go leave a comment and good luck! She is giving away $25 via PayPal. Not too shabby for leaving a comment, is it?

I would like to pass this award on to Jenny, Teeni, Unruly Duckling and Old Knudsen, because they really are true blue. The screen shot is courtesy of Jenny. I didn’t think to take one when my blog broke. She is very helpful when I have glitches and issues on all of my sites. Some of them I can fix, some, not so much.

I would like to thank those of you who take the time to comment on my posts. I do love your comments. I’m mostly answering them by email now, because I learned that is what the big girls do. If there is an item that needs more discussion, I may add to the comments section. I should have done that with the colon hydrotherapy post, but I had cheese issues.

Because I am sparing you the details of my cheese issues, you should hit that Blogger’s Choice Awards button on my sidebar and go vote for me. Really? It’s the lesser of the two evils. Truly.

Old Knudsen Says:

I’d just like to thank Witchypoo for this award and for all those strange people that have found me through her. I’d like to also thank the man upstairs, no not God I’m talking about the bloke in my attic fixing my water tank.
I know no good can come from cheese, especially when the words issues is used with it and I hope its easy to clean.
Remember its not the size of the bandwidth that counts its what you can do with it. Yes I know nothing about computery things.

Oh and Witchy I was longlisted on the Irish Blog awards for best pop culture blog, there are 13 of us in total which reminds me of the Loki story in which he is the 13th guest at a party. I shall try to remain civil for fear of being chained to a rock and a snake dripping venom on me

Congrats on the award Witchy, and thank you for your kind words :) Always willing to help out when I can.

Jenny Says:

Yeah, I’m pretty sure my bandwidth is far from being exceeded. Congrats on your True Blue, and much thanks for passing it on to me (now I’ll spend another 10 hours trying to figure out how to display it)! You really are the best. HEY, maybe you should create a Purple Plate award… Kind of the ‘free energy’ award for those bloggers that give you a little spring in your step each day. And it could linky-loo to the Purple Plate site. Oh wait, I need to learn to keep my thousand simultaneous thoughts harnessed. I was leaving a comment…thanking you for your fabulous bloggyness. That reminds me, I have some submissions for Ask Witchypoo… I’ll have to get on that.

Jenny’s last blog post..Letters to the Universe

Unruly Duckling Says:

I’m glad your blog’s not broke down. I would miss it.

I think it would be too bad if you stopped responding to comments here on the blog. One of the things I really enjoy about reading blogs is the great conversation in the comments sections.
