A word of advice from me to you: Don’t upgrade your wordpress blog to the new version because you won’t be able to upload pictures and you’ll get VD and the world will explode. I’m not certain about the last two but definitely the first. So while technical support (Victor and some autobots who are trying to destroy him) tries to get this fixed, perhaps you could drop by my other blog that no one goes to because it gives you seizures. (Seriously Chronicle, the flash ads are giving us all cancer. Please stop.) Today I wrote about alien abductions and before that it was the f-word on Sesame Street.
Kittens pushing strollers? The 1,400 glass animals at my house? My drugged-up co-author Mindy intentionally ripping the leg off my cat? Any of that doing it for you? No? You’d rather stay here and re-read the leprechaun post again? Okay. No pressure, little ninjas.
PS. If you already go to my other blog you are not a nobody. You are God’s own special warrior and your hair looks great today.
Comment of the day: Hey! I am totally there all the time and commenting and shit. Cause I am THAT awesome. But no mention of me being awesome and shit and commenting like ALL THE TIME. Meh. Scuse me I have some Damn Emo music to listen to… ~Kelley (who is awesome and shit and commenting all the time. Please don’t cut yourself, Kelley.)

This is exactly why I am still publishing my blog on a clay tablet.
sgazzetti’s last blog post..Shopping for staples
I tried that. Kept losing the stylus.
New to your blog and now afraid to surf to the other site!! This is SOOOOOOO confusing!!!
Hallie’s last blog post..Let Them Eat Cake….If They Still WANT To!
I know. It’s totally confusing. Here’s the nutshell. I had a mommy blog on the Houston Chronicle (unpaid) but I wanted to curse and kept getting in trouble so I started “The Bloggess” but I still enjoyed writing on the Chronicle because I could get into events for free by saying I was with the Chronicle (disclaimer to the Chronicle: I would never do that) so now I write a new mom blog on the Chronicle with my frienemy Mindy. It’s called “Good Mom/Bad Mom” and it’s aptly named because I rock and Mindy is horrible. (Disclaimer: I love Mindy and atually she’s a great mom when she’s out of jail.)
So that’s it. Just two blogs. And some twittering. And a flickr account. And some other stuff. It’s complicated.
I will admit I didn’t know about your other blog until you gave me a shout out. But then I pu tit (I corrected that little typo, then put it back again, just so I could leave you a comment with tit in it to make you happier today) in my reader immediately. I am happy to report that I LOVE what reading that blog does to my hair every morning. Better than the professionals with styling tools, I say.
MommyTime’s last blog post..What Passes for Newsworthy at My House
Thanks for the hair compliment. I’ve been trying a new texturizer.
Nikki’s last blog post..Nip it in the bud
Another great post, Jenny The Bloggess! I’m linking to you today and your masterful use of “WTF?” Just warning you so you can adjust your server for the extra load.
Black Hockey Jesus’s last blog post..Pregnant Lady Rockin A Bikini
I knew YOU’d love my new birds nest look!
Fitarella’s last blog post..My random brain
are you sure it doesn’t upload pictures? maybe it’s just your pictures… questionable content? I kid. I kid, because I’m about to go WordPress, and you scared me.
that girl’s last blog post..1×365 – Preschool Teacher
I am somebody!
Really? Because I thought my hair looked like crap today.
HRH’s last blog post..Park place…
OK, that was really weird…I wrote “park place” weeks ago…
that new version…how is it working out for you?
HRH’s last blog post..5 years at the speed of light…
I miss the old version. If there was a way to un-update I would.
Wow, that’s just craptastic!
Sandy’s last blog post..The Continuing Saga of George
Try upgrading the Flash on your computer.
Or look for the “no flash” plugin that disables that part of WordPress image loading piece of shit software
Or look for another plugin (I use one called “image manager”) and just don’t use the piece of shit software that WordPress gave us to uploading images
Other than that, I don’t have any ideas.
Except the plugin to fix their POS software is here:
Good luck, we’re all counting on you. And, thanks for the cracker.
ben’s last blog post..Selective hearing
Same same here on the update after 2.5. I use Flickr for my images. Let someone else use up the bandwidth and disk space.
witchypoo’s last blog post..Ask Witchypoo: Cyber Energy and the Afterlife
I installed this plug in and it fixed the problem. (WP 2.5.1)
Janet’s last blog post..Really? It’ll change my skin forever?
move my hair, move it around alot. i don’t care what i remember. i buzzed my hair yesterday. my hair is insanely full and gorgeous for a 49 year old male and grows faster than price of gas so in summer i buzz it off. cannot cope with the heat and it always looks sweaty and ill groomed because it is mostly gray and everyone knows grey hair has a life of its own, like cold sores. my head now looks perfectly egg-shaped.
what was your post about??
oh yeah and i already checked out your GMBM post. rock on.
always, buddy’s last blog post..the obligatory 330a post
This is all my fault, isn’t it.
(That’s just what I say when I don’t know what to say. You’re welcome.)
Maggie, dammit’s last blog post..storms and sunsets
lemme know if ya needs any WP help. i have a kung fu grip, which helps when i pound my pud
furiousball’s last blog post..i get by with a little help from my friends and angus young
I’m not totally sure, but I heard that the new wordpress is put out by Twitter. That’s why it goes down more than a hooker on Hollywood Blvd.
Heather’s last blog post..A Man Named Ginger
I may be forced to resort to pen and paper. Just sayin
flutter’s last blog post..Life doesn’t stop
I, for one, am glad. I was really getting tired of the Sasquatchist remarks and photos.
Greta’s last blog post..7 Pounds
One of my blogs is on WP for our local newspaper and they upgraded it for me- how nice. So I’ve figured out that the only way I can post pics and links is usually to go in through IE (gag I know) and insert manually via html. Fun times. I hate Word Press.
Adventures In Babywearing’s last blog post..A Side Of Shoe
I read them both because my kung fu is totally awesome.
Jeff’s last blog post..Five Death Defying Feats for Naked Women
Thank you – I wasn’t sure about my hair this morning, but now I feel more confident than ever, Sinsei.
I will now and forever NOT use WordPress. Thanks for the tip.
Sounds like it would kill my ancient computer and force me to find out how all of this stuff really works. It’s all smoke and mirrors to me.
Headless Mom’s last blog post..The Kindergarten Question- Part 4- The Parent Factor
Thanks! I worry a lot that my awesome ninja skills mess up my hair. Nice to know that at least for today I’m somebody.
I just moved my blog from MySpace (lame, I know) to Blogger a year and a half ago. But I’m starting to think I should graduate to a more professional look. Except I have no money or skills to do that. Awesome.
Becky Mochaface’s last blog post..Harry Potter Prequel
I still can’t figure out who “upgrade” means “thirty steps backwards”. Seems off to me somehow.
AMomTwoBoys’s last blog post..Mooching Monday, er, Tuesday Night
My hair does look great today.
I let hubby worry about all that WordPress stuff. That’s what he’s there for – to design my blog, fix my car, and massage my feet with cocoa butter.
The Introvert’s last blog post..shock and awe
too bad my hair looks like total SHIT today. even my “messy bun” looks like HELL
biddy’s last blog post..this is sad…very very sad
I’ve been thinking about upgrading our wheresmydamnanswer blog to the new wordpress 2.5.1 version and I keep getting skeeeeered.
Isn’t there someone out there who knows how to do all this that I can just send a bottle of booze to in exchange for doing it? Come on … someone’s got to be thirsty …
Oh and if we read both blogs – what does that tell ya? 😉
I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.
WordPress, do you hear me?
Amy in Ohio’s last blog post..Going to Booty Camp…so not what you’re thinking
I am a deer in headlights as far as moving my blog anywhere. I am on lamo blogspot and the couple thing I tried to do got so f’d up, I just leave it as is.
And thanks … I thought I was having a bad hair day today.
Oh God thank you. I really thought I was having a bad hair day.
Robin’s last blog post..Who doesn’t love cool, FREE stuff
Why thank you. I thought my hair looked especially snazzy today.
I GO TO YOUR OTHER BLOG. AM SPECIAL.
ali’s last blog post..Seven-year-olds: Smarter than you and I
Sure my hair looks great today . . . but what about my armpit hair? Does it, too, look great?
Tranny Head’s last blog post..A Bitchy Checklist for Grandma
Well, that settles it. I’m sticking with Blogger after all, ’cause my husband would be pissed off if I caught VD.
Velma’s last blog post..The Backyard
Just curious, which happens first? VD, or the end of the world?
Inquiring minds want to know and all that rot…
Ed T.’s last blog post..Hell’s Kitchen: School days, school daze
f************ck, now I know what went wrong with my hair.
Maggie’s last blog post..Thieves in the temple – or the blogosphere
I am computer stoopid. So I don’t know or have any advice about your wordpress problem. I have someone to take care of all that…a nice woman I stalked until she helped me out. Now I just send her an email and say “what the what is that thingy on the side of the thingy with the things that look like this mean?” and she fixes it.
And I promise to start reading the chronicle, only if you can help me out with the bad hair days. I’ve been having one consecutive bad hair day for the last few months.
SWEET!! Just as I was giving on my self-worth: “If you already go to my other blog you are not a nobody. You are God’s own special warrior and your hair looks great today.” All is healed because I am a reader already at the other blog!
CPA Mom’s last blog post..Current Giveaways
What kind of VD? Can I still hug you at BlogHer?
mothergoosemouse’s last blog post..Stop stigmatizing and start caring
You can totally still hug me. It’s the mild kind of VD that just makes you unable to concentrate at work and forget to pick up perscriptions.
I was a nobody and now I’m not.
Mrs. G.’s last blog post..This, That and the Other
Fuck! You have some sort of ego Jen, what with having 2 blogs and all. Now I must spend time checking it out. Time I will never get back.
The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time. Unless you spend it blogging. Then it’s wasted.
God almighty! Is that really your glass animal collection!? I’m totally impressed as I don’t have the attention span to collection more than one or two of anything.
Jennifer’s last blog post..Oz
Why yes, my hair does look great today.
Thanks for noticing!
Gretchen’s last blog post..I don’t know how else to say it.
What if I used to go to your other blog? Oh, OK, I’ll go…. 🙂
Damselfly’s last blog post..What I’d Wear Wednesday: A coverup
WordPress 2.5 is a bastard. I hate having to upload a photo to Photobucket or a porn site or wherever first. It sucks.
Plus, I can’t figure out the thumbnail feature. Damn them to hell, those WordPress designers.
I didn’t think you noticed my hair at first. Now, I’m blushing.
Jennifer H’s last blog post..Jennifer’s Fantasy Poker Tour, Part II
You have a blog?
WT’s last blog post..And that’s the difference.
i came here because i wanted to be commenter #52.
oh, and you’re not making my wp switch look good.
Hey! I am totally there all the time and commenting and shit. Cause I am THAT awesome. But no mention of me being awesome and shit and commenting like ALL THE TIME.
Meh. Scuse me I have some Damn Emo music to listen to…
Kelley’s last blog post..Wow, trippy man…
But I said your hair looks nice.
Don’t kill yourself.
I am a technological dumb ass, so I cannot offer any sound advice, however,I do have a dancing Barbie and her hair is HOT
Insane Mama’s last blog post..James the stalker Part Five
the new version of wordpress gives me hives.
ali’s last blog post..sometimes classics are classics for a reason. you hear that, Hasbro??
I like the other blog! Sorry about the wordpress debacle.
Ps. After I went to the other site, my hair started falling out….but no worries, super glue allowed me to systematically patch the bald spots.
I’m deciding to push thru and still read, doctor says chemo will help!
PPS. Your hair looks nice too.
Superglue? I’ll have to try that.
Crap on a cracker.
Yep, that’s about right. Updating is either orgasmic or tragic… either way, ti’s an ‘ick’
I already read GM/BM, so now I feel supah dupah special.
rachel’s last blog post..More Than, Less Than… Wednesday
Thanks, Jenny! I actually thought my hair needed cutting, but if you think it looks great, who am I to argue?
Woodlandmama’s last blog post..The Girl Who Fell Down
I always wanted to be one of God’s own special warriors. So good to know I have been one for months! Add the great hair and I am having a great day! Thanks.
ok ok… you had me had hair. Here I go…
the mama bird diaries’s last blog post..pour me a glass of sorbet. really.
Will you come brush my hair? I miss you.
Chase’s last blog post..Pictures. At Least A Few!
Well, I’m glad I wasn’t sucked in by that WordPress order to update. Finally being a clueless rebel pay off!
that is why I am staying with blogspot blogger .. everyone has me scared now
Trish’s last blog post..Wordless Wednesday – Drummer Boys
So, when you get your child back, how sure are you that it’s actually your child and not some alien that is usurping her body to eventually take over the world? Hmm?
Captain Steve’s last blog post..Doctor-Patient Privilege
So… is crap on a crap cracker like fresh crap on top of a piece of flat, toasted crap?
Sadly, the crap is never what you’d call “fresh”.
Why are we still talking about this? I told you it was all my fault. Bygones.
Maggie, dammit’s last blog post..storms and sunsets
oh well, i’m still being hosted for free. still saving up to get my own domain.
you are seriously making me laugh….hahah the tablet and the stylus things.
c”,) Morning Sniffles
poorman’s nicole richie’s last blog post..A worthwhile hibernation
Reading this just gave me crabs. And I don’t appreciate it. As tasty as they are.
The problem is you really have to eat a lot of them before you begin to feel full.
You’ll be hearing from my lawyer…or my probation officer.
Kevin Charnas’s last blog post..Hey, You Guys…
Thank you! I worked REALLY hard on my hair today. I was hoping you would notice.
Rhi’s last blog post..Where I talk about my right ovary, and also the worst news ever
Instead of typing in “thebloggess.com” this morning I had a brainfart and typed in “old” instead. Weird.
Wow – I’m hearing a lot about the whole WordPress updating debaucle (I love big words).
Kinda make me feel better about not having jumped on the wordpress/typepad bandwagon yet.
(Saying it like that sounds better than “I’m cheap”)
Melody’s last blog post..I know, I know…
Umm, shouldn’t people who like big words know that debacle has no “U”? No offense, I’m just saying…
Jenny, you should NEVER update software that’s functioning properly. Ever. Oh well, at least now you’ll have the chance to learn HTML.
I don’t adjust to change well. I usually get a vd. From change…and also from the various men I sleep with.
Kathy’s last blog post..Miss Smarty Pants
What? I come by especially to visit you, and you try to give me a seizure and/or VD? Your love is overwhelming me at the moment. ;P As for that upgrade, I’m sure Matt and the rest of the WP crew will have those bugs squashed soon. Don’t forget to hollar a bug report at ’em, jic! 😛
The Pear Lady’s last blog post..BTT: all about the flavor
What about mobbing and gangstalking?
