I received a rather strange and disturbing email via my contact page from a blogger I follow, Marilyn Armstrong, over at Serendipity.
“Haven’t heard from you in weeks. You mad at me?” she wrote.
I didn’t know why the real Marilyn would send that, since I read her blog almost religiously, click like on most of her posts, and comment on many of them. I thought maybe someone had spoofed her email, and that if I clicked on her embedded link, I’d be the victim of malware.
So I reached out to Marilyn, who informed me that the email was, indeed, from her. She responded by telling me that she hadn’t seen any comments from me since early April.
What? The only explanation is that my comments were disappearing somewhere in cyberspace or getting hijacked in the blogosphere.
You know, I’ve seen other bloggers complain that their pingbacks weren’t working or that their comments weren’t showing up, but I didn’t realize it was happening to my comments as well.
So if you suddenly happen to notice my absence in you comments section, it might be due to some glitch in WordPress.
Just wanted to let you know. In case, you know, you missed me.
