Some Technical Difficulties

Last month I upgraded my web host and as a result, my email servers experienced an outage. For the past month, many of you have emailed me and I did not receive it due to this error, so I just discovered several hundred unread emails tonight. I am working diligently to respond to each and every one, but please understand that it was not my intention to ignore you!

Also, many of you have complained about random layout issues. For some reason certain browsers, like Chrome, trigger the site to display in my special Ipad format which I installed a couple months ago. Also, some Ipad users have had issues with certain posts with javascript ads displaying correctly. I am going to disable this feature until a workaround is found, so I apologize in advance to anyone who liked the Ipad format.

If you have any other recommendations about the site or need to email me about another issue, please do so here. I promise you won’t be ignored, though it may take me a day or so to respond!
