I have not stopped blogging and Katie's Language Cafe is still going strong. If you tried to visit my blog this past week, I'm sure you noticed...none of the links or pages were working. But if you tried to visit today then you noticed something else: now you can't even visit.
Yep. Blogger is having an issue with blogs pointed towards custom domains and "doing maintenance" and going on day 6 of that now.
How did this happen?
Three days ago I switched the domain of this blog from blogspot to a custom domain; a (dot).com.
A relatively easy (and usually painless) process that allows Katie's Language Cafe to be a (dot).com, and grow my blog further while still being a blogger blog.
Had I waited 12 more hours to do this switch; I would have been locked out of the custom domain feature and my blog would still be working as a blogspot.com blog.
But as (bad) luck would have it, I switched over just in time to be effectively locked out and now my blog is not working; affected by the "issues" that blogger is reporting on blogspot blogs who have switched to a custom domain.
Long story short: My blog is currently not viewable accept to those of you receiving posts via email (me to you). You cannot visit me back in any way or link at this time while Blogger does maintenance on this problem. I am told it could be just a few days before all is well again or (gasp) that it could be a few weeks~~Je vais devenir chêvre si cela se produit. -- I'll be so mad if that
happens! But what is a girl to do...
I'm very sorry about that.
In the meantime I will keep writing quality content on France, traveling, learning the language, cuisine and posting fab travel pictures and... practicing the virtue of Patience. The Wednesday link up will not be up again until the blogger issue is finished. And so, C'est la vie (we accept these circumstances as they are) and in the meantime I still get to visit you in your inbox, but I hope the blog is back online soon so you can visit me too.
