New Email Address - New Blog Headaches!!

Isn't this always the way things go....change one little thing on your blog and then presto chango, your blogs a mess!! Where is a techie when you need one???

I just recently had to change my email from comcast to a gmail account.  I needed to update my blog with the new email so you could all reach me if necessary and as a result had to add myself and new email as a new Administrator to my own blog. 

What I didn't know was that if you delete the old account email and administrator you lose all of your blog stats, personal profile information etc.! 

What's even worse...I can't add my old comcast account back as the administrator because I can't get my emails from the closed account to verify the change!  It's enough to make me want to cry! 

Now I have to go edit my Feeds, update my Google profile, as well as change my email address on every blasted site I belong to!  UGH!!!

This is me...

  1. Rebecka, sorry to hear about the mess! I have a phobia about changing or upgrading even if I wanted to, as I know that I will make a mess of everything! I have just opened a Twitter account and not sure how to go about using it! LOL! Hope everything works out fine for you, if I lose everything, I would cry too, in fact I think I would be hysterical! Can't anyone help you with this 'computer-thing"? The only one I go to when I'm stuck with all these "computer-thing" is my brother-in-law! He will ask me what's the problem, I would say, "computer-thing!" Haha! Hope everything will be sorted out soon! It is very frustating! Relax with a cup of tea!

  2. Joy, thanks for your words of encouragement! I finally have most of my accounts sorted out but I've lost a lot of information. Thew worst was when I stupidly deleted my old email account form my blog. If you ever have to change emails just add the new one and leave everything else alone! I wish I had a computer genie I cloud summon when ever I needed help. My husband will help me with some things but he doesn't know much about the blog stuff! I'm so happy you have your brother-in-law to help you!! As for that cup of tea...I've had a few this week along with a few margaritas for good measure! HUGS!

  4. I have had different experience, probably just has frustrating. If you want to feel powerless, get yourself in to a techie mess.

    I hope, all is well again. You are certainly cooking good food despite the issue.
