Yikes! Check Your Spam! Apology to Lynz Real Cooking

WordPress reviews your comments and moves those it deems inappropriate into a spam file.  I just checked mine and found two legitimate comments from legitimate followers.  Sigh.  Check your Spam folder regularly for legitimate comments.

I apologize to http://lynzrealcooking.com/ for WordPress putting one of your comments in Spam!

I also apologize to the other comment but when I hit not spam it was approved and now I can’t find which comment it was.  I was too upset to remember who that follower was, double sigh…. 😦

Jason The Opinionated Man of Harsh Reality 10 “Facts”

Imagine my surprise this morning when I checked my stats on WordPress while waiting for the microwave to beep.

I had a bunch of comments, views, likes and visitors, I thought I must’ve accidentally accessed some other WordPress blogger’s account!

Within about six hours I had surpassed my previous daily record on comments, views, likes and visitors!

What happened? JASON from Opinionated Man and Harsh Reality….

Jason had reblogged a short post I did commenting about a WordPress notification.

Jason always offers to reblog, guest post, guest blog, and share a post.   I never took him up on it because I figured it was for his more sophisticated followers but now I realize he can help even us little guys from the suburbs. I’m from Arvada, Colorado. Hey wait I am pretty sure Jason is from Arvada, Colorado!

So here’s 10 things I wanted to share that I know about Jason:

  1. Jason is a gentleman he has always answered my stupid questions quickly and politely.
  2. Jason truly deep down cares about the new bloggers.  He’s kind and responds to their comments in an encouraging way.
  3. Jason’s family is adorable.  (This should be moved to number 1 but I am too lazy.)
  4. Jason is a fun read I don’t always agree with him but I almost always get his point.
  5. Jason doesn’t sleep, he blogs continuously.
  6. I’ve read a Jason post and thought to myself “I wish I had said that!”  (a clever post)
  7. I’ve read a Jason post and thought to myself “I’m glad I didn’t say that!” (I’m a scaredy-cat)
  8. Some readers find Jason abrasive, obnoxious, rude, etc. but that’s what makes him interesting.  He is not afraid to state his opinion and he is going to get a rise from some portion of the WordPress community and beyond.
  9. Jason’s writing is varied and eclectic.  He has surprised me more than once.
  10. Harsh Reality and Jason the Opinionated Man is one of the first blogs I followed.  I have learned a lot from Jason and look forward to reading him forever.  Lets hope he never gets discouraged … too many of us enjoy his presence.

Thanks Jason!

“Your blog, sanseilife, appears to be getting more traffic than usual! 39 hourly views – 0 hourly views on average”

Was this designed to upset me, make me cry, zero hourly views on average boo hoo!  😢👎😧😓😒 Really WordPress I’d rather not get any of these notifications!
