So I FINALLY chose a good web address for my blog. theperkygemini.wordpress.com Right? It took me how long to come up with that? And of course I fully believed the little thingy that told me when I created the blog in the first place that I could change my web address whenever I wanted, no big deal, so I just went and did it this morning when I thought of it. And when it asked if I wanted to keep the old one, I said yes just to be on the safe side.
The next few minutes were spent frantically clicking things, staring at blank pages, and generally freaking the fuck out. For a minute there, it looked like I had completely lost my entire blog. The last month and a half of narcissistic ramblings disappeared in a click of the mouse.
I then realized that what I was looking at was my old web address. Two or three clicks later, I had again found my blog and my sanity. My heart rate is probably still too high considering the steroids, but at least this imaginary crisis I created for myself has been averted.
I also realized after the change that any links I had previously posted to Facebook have been rendered utterly useless. *facepalm*
The score this morning: Technology 1, Amanda 0.
