Pesky WP Gremlins — View from the Back

Over the past week or so, I’ve noted that many of the blogs I’ve followed for some considerable time have just dropped off my timeline. According to WP, I am still following you but I am not seeing your posts in my timeline. I’m slowly trying to identify all the affected blogs, yours may be […]

For those I follow, I look for blogs I haven’t seen in the Reader lately. I get weekly updates which helps me to find them.

    • I know that feeling. I use an add-on that forces Facebook to switch to Most Recent as the default is Top Stories. Not sure how a Top Story that hasn’t been commented on in days, if at all, qualifies as a Top Story. For family, I have some that only use Facebook to give updates. They have cell phones, but only use them to update Facebook. They hate talking on the phone and many hate texting too.
