(This was me earlier today when I couldn’t access my site! Lol!)
First of all – thank you for all of your patience!! Whew! The site didn’t end up going live till this afternoon (had a few more issues to take care of) and I am now finally able to access it! For some computers (including mine) it takes longer to recognize the new site – so let me know if you’re still experiencing difficulty. I was finally able to get on late tonight – which is why there haven’t been any new posts for several days! Sorry about that guys!! A big thank you to Lauren from Restored316 Designs, my blog designer, for putting in a lot of time to help me get everything working smoothly for all of you!
Hopefully everything should be working by tomorrow for all of you but in case you’re still not able to access the site – here are a few tricks you can try to see if it will refresh to the new WordPress site:
-Clear your cache (under “Tools” in your browser)
-Delete your cookies (under “Tools” in your browser)
-Restart your computer
-Power-cycle your modem & router (basically turning it on & off)–this is what finally enabled me to access the blog & the admin section again – so I can get back to posting deals for all of you! :)
I mentioned on the Facebook page that we would be kicking off our giveaway week this evening, but since I was unable to access the site until late tonight, that won’t start until Friday.
One more note:
I know many of you liked having the list of blogs that were previously found on my sidebar – my favorite NW blogs & other great bargain blogs. I did move that from the sidebar, just to keep things a bit cleaner . But, you can find that feature under the tab – “Resources” – click on the drop-down menu to “Links”. I have listed my favorite NW blogs there (and added a few new ones) and I will soon be adding in more of my favorite bargain blogs with links & buttons (I just ran out of time last night but I’ll get it up for you soon). I think this is a great resource for you all to use as obviously I cannot post all the deals out there, nor can any of the blogs – so it’s a good idea to read several blogs to find a nice variety of the deals & coupons available.
