I received an ‘Account Suspended’ error message when I tried to log in yesterday. A little research told me that when WordPress suspends a blog it’s a one way trip to the bit bucket (tech-speak for the trashcan of no return). From their site:
Blogs are suspended if they are found to be in breach of the TOS. [Terms of Service]
We do not contact you first to ask that content be modified or removed.
You may NOT have that blog name back.
You may NOT have the blog content back.
This morning I logged in with no problem.
No response to my email to support either. WP support said the suspension was a mistake and apologized.
I didn’t understand why I was so bummed when I thought bloggy could have split his last infinitive. This is partly a record, partly a diversion, partly an opportunity to exercise my gray matter. So what if it was lost?
This morning I realized owning a blog with few readers is like having a friendly one eyed dog that has bad breath and poor bladder control. It may not be much, but it’s mine.
