The email was sent properly but when I opened it the logos were obscured and said "click here". When I went to click to visit one of the blogs that had been updated I was redirected to a site saying Blogarithm's domain name had expired! I checked and checked but no luck, even after trying numerous links.
All I could think about was that all the addresses of all the blogs I subscribe to would be gone! It would take me hours and hours to compile such a list again from scratch... made me wish that I'd somehow saved my links or backed them up!
On this site I found an email link to the owners of the site and immediately sent a "HELP!" email. I was pleasantly surprised when within an hour I received this helpful reply:
I'm sorry about the expiration. It will be working again soon.
There was a mixup with our domain registrar.
Well done Blogarithm! Having checked now I can see the wheels are in motion as the page I am redirected to is different... at least the page is parked now.
I can't wait until it's back up and running.... can you guess what the first thing I'll be doing is??!!
