Thanks for finally letting me in. Why didn't you answer me when I asked for help?
Except they did. And it is all my fault.
So. My writing time is early in the morning. Like 5 AM. In general, I write at Starbucks. My old tiny laptop that fit in my purse (OK, shoulder bag) was no longer up to new technology. I had gotten it in 2010 and it just couldn't handle the new windows programs. Windows XP - fine. Windows 10- unh uh.
My new laptop is powerful. I had planned on a tablet, but the amount of RAM wasn't large enough to handle Photoshop. So the new Dell arrived and we started loading things.
When I got to Starbucks I couldn't get into my blog. Blogger kept telling me that I didn't HAVE a blog. I kept requesting help. I "never got help".
So I kept sending emails and requests for help. Which never arrived. I must have changed my password 10 times until I didn't even remember what it was anymore.
Except that help was arriving. It was going to a Gmail account that didn't remember I had. It was all there when finally, the prompt asked me if I could possibly have another email account...I figured that since I had tried everything else, I might as well say "yes" to the question.
Gee Whiz. There WAS another Gmail account. That I hadn't remembered. It was listed as my recovery account. I hadn't remembered that either..
Trying to sign in, I STILL couldn't manage it. I couldn't seem to get my refound email to work .Google kept using my remembered Gmail. Did I see the little downward carrot that asked for a secondary email? No. I did not. I was ticked off and it just didn't register...
But finally I noticed the downward carrot. And I was able to enter the Gmail associated with my blog. And my password worked. And I have author access.
I'm getting old. That must be it. Although I would like to think that it is just that I am very busy and I'm preoccupied with other, weightier matters. But I have to be realistic.
