Oops! I changed my e-mail address last night on WordPress. And what did it do to me? Well, it deleted all (oh yes, ALL) my subscriptions.
So…over the next few days I will try and visit you all and re-subscribe. If I´m a regular visitor/commenter to your site and I haven´t done this in the next week, I won´t be offended if you drop by and give me a gentle nudge….I don´t want to miss out on anything.

You´re telling me 😦
Oh Dear! Computers think they are so clever.
That was what I thought!
Just because you changed your email…I’m sorry to hear about this. I hope it doesn’t cause too many issues. And I would love to have a drink there.
It does great business (a family runs it) as the food is good. In summer they open up the terrace and outdoor kitchen and in winter it´s inside and big log fires!
What a nuisance! Hope to ‘see’ you soon….when you can tear yourself away from that view!
It´s rather lovely isn´t it…even when it is getting a bit dried out in the campo!
Hmmm … I´m always filled with trepidation when changing things on my blog – just in case they disappear. I´ve just changed my theme here on WordPress – and when I´ve done this on previous occasions items in the sidebar have vanished without a trace. This time I noted everything down carefully so I could reproduce them and, as you might imagine, everything transferred across to the new theme perfectly! LOL
I should have done what you did! Just didn´t think it would cause me a problem 😦
No, I agree. Changing your email address shouldn´t have caused you a problem. It´s a warning to us all!
Grumble away! I was going to change my email address on WP so thanks for the heads up! On the up side I’m presuming it’s a lovely sunny day where you are 🙂
It´s hot (31 degrees) but overcast and humid…maybe a storm is on its way? I hear that the Olympic torch is coming your way on 17th July!
Yes, very exciting! We went to the Olympic Park yeserday – for a sneaky preview and I’m just trying to sort out the million photos so I can blog about it 🙂
Thanks for the warning; I had been playing around with the idea of doing just that…
The view is stunning from your terrace…How do you ever tear yourself away from it?
Luckily it´s a little local bar which is a short drive away, so I am not distracted all the time. Just out of sight is the village pool which opens next week so I often go for a swim in the evening then a quick drink in the bar with all my co-swimmers!
Oh no! Well, I know you’ll be by on Wednesday when you need your cocktail fix.:)
I´ve already been by – how could I not?! Mind you, a cocktail right now to soothe my frazzled nerves would be nice 🙂
I pulled you out of my spam queue, must be the new e-mail!
Uh Oh!!!! Changing any details seems to be a mission fraught with possible disasters. I have been there!! x
What a pain, mind you, it could have been worse I guess!
How funny is that NOT! Why on earth did WP think that they had to delete your subscriptions? And this also explains why I had to approve your comment 🙂
Seems crazy as it was all still via my account! I am making your pita bread today…needs something nice to calm me down!
Oh no! What a bother Tanya. Think I would be having more of a froth than a grumble if it happened to me. Good luck with all the resubscribing.
I think I frothed at first, then it subsided to a grumble!
You’re showing up in my subscribers and I saw your comment, so good here. But what a drag that is and it must be a new thing. I changed my email a few months after I started the blog and it didn’t do that. Thanks for the heads up!
It was a pain, but I resubscribed to you this morning, so am glad that´s working!
How ridiculous! Hang in there, Tanya.
Hope everything gets straightened out quickly. I’ve been frustrated a few times when posts under costruction seem to just disappear, but thankfully not too often. Glad it works well most of the time!
Yes, in the great scheme of things it´s not so bad 🙂
My daughter just did a class with an instructor who told the students, “If it isn’t life threatening, it’s trivial.” Words to live by!
Oh dear! I’ve been having my own wrestling match with WordPress recently, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed that everything works out. 🙂
Oh dear, when things go wrong, they really do mess up!
aargh! that dang ripple effect!
You´re right, that´s what it is!
Ah the joys of WP.com…so much fun. 🙂
Aw, that sucks! And that view made me soooo homesick! 🙂
Sorry to make you homesick 😦 Where exactly was home?
Home is many places but in Spain, down on the coast around Fuengirola. My father spent his early childhood at Torremolinos in the 50s. 🙂
Oops! Message received and understood, thanks.
It was a big Ooops!
It should be a new day by now, hope there’s more sunshine! x
All sorted and much happier now!
Welcome to my world! I offered to stay at my daughters house in town and mind their dog while they house sat their brothers appartment in Melbourne while he went to America…to cut a long story short I discovered that not only couldn’t I remember any of my passwords so that I could blog from their place, but that I also couldn’t work the remote control to save my life! I spent the entire week watching the BIO channel after the girls most thoughfully left the television tuned in to the food and lifestyle channel for me and I accidentally hit something, pressed a few more buttons and suddenly arrived at Bio…so there I stayed! Steve is currently giving me lessons in anti-technophobia remote control lessons…there goes my ludite ways! Bollocks to remote controls and bollocks to stupid WordPress eliminating your contacts…please feel free to return to theroadtoserendipity any time you like girl, you are ALWAYS welcome and should you feel up to showing me how to make a dress (or use the remote…there is only so many times that Steve will show me before he breaks down and cry’s and who wants to see a grown man cry?)…
Oh dear. But I feel your pain. I too can never remember passwords when I am using other pcs and end up locking myself out of programmes and bank accounts. The tv is the same at my mum and dad´s – they seem to have about 8 remote controls and if you don´t use them in the right order…well, the same as you! Am heading over to subscribe now 🙂
Oh, so glad to know that others do things like that. I set up our facebook page, and got the url wrong (a typo!).
Oops – well, I´m the Queen of Breaking Things at home, so at least I didn´t break WordPress!
Go figure.. I tried to change mine and it said waiting for “approval” and then it never happened. I guess now I’m glad, as I’d be in the same boat as you! Good luck with it all!
I wonder what I did to be “approved” and not you?!
?? WordPress has gone crazy !!
?? WordPress has gone crazy !! I did take the time to put all my subscriptions to a new email address at the time.. so all updates go through my hotmail account not my main wordpress and personal account. Maybe try that?? Good luck!
Good idea! Thanks 🙂 Will give this a go….
Bugger! To put it succinctly :o)
My thoughts precisely!
Oh no – what a pain in the rear end. Could you not have contacted their support and see if they can restore your subscriptions?
Unfortunately, I wasn´t a sensible thinker! I think I´ve been round to most people now and re subscribed!
Hi T, Sorry this happened to you but thanks for sharing.
Regards Florence x
It was a pain, but I think I´m sorted now!
I hope you went to the bar, sat on the terrace and had a lovely drink or two after what happened to you. I haven’t visited you in a few days to comment and I don’t have an excuse. Catching up…you are so clever with your sewing by the way.
Yes, I think I did have a glass of wine to put the world back to rights!
