Paying It Forward--Blog-Angel Style

Class, remember my last post about my suspicions about two of my blogs being banned by IE? Well, thanks to the thoughtful reader/angel, The Imaginary Diva, who left a comment about her own experience of having a widget act-up on her and closing down IE for her, I was able to troubleshoot and discover the troublesome widget....Google Language Translator of all things! Who would have thunk it?

If it weren't for her experience and sharing her hard-won wisdom with her comment, my two blogs might still be stuck in IE purgatory! So a BIG Shout-Out to The Imaginary Diva for taking the time to share your wisdom!

This helpful quality is what makes for a great blogging community as we're all in the process of learning, and the learning curve comes in strange and mysterious ways.

Late yesterday (as I was celebrating Cinco de Mayo and in no shape to blog, trust me!), I received an email from a blog buddy which began like this:

"You are my last hope contacting ex Blogger now Bloogle-Glogger ! My sidebar disappeared but not like in the past, just hanging down, this time it disappeared from my blog but also "inside" !
When I open Layout "page Elements" the HTLM Java script button is missing. There is only one for "Blog Archives" and one for "About me" and that's it. It suddenly disappeared 3 or 4 days ago and I haven't touched this for quite a while.

Do you know somebody who could help me ? In this Google help group I asked but got no answer. I would like to add some things but can't because this button is not there. It's only in my blog Writer Cramps ! I also tried both browsers, Firefox and IE but for both it's the same."

So I emailed her back today with a recommendation. Then it struck me I could pay it forward by posting on my blog about the situation my friend is facing on her blog, Writer's Cramps.

Maybe one of you reader/angels can help her out with a comment as The Imaginary Diva did for me? As well all know, it may be hell freezing over (I know, a tired, worn-out cliche) before she hears back from Blogger. They're probably STILL celebrating Cinco de Mayo!

Over and out. Is my halo shining brighter, Mr. ""?

    What better way to welcome Monday...
