GOSH...at MY age, NEW STUFF all around me....:>)

DEAREST FAMILY, FRIENDS, READERS AND LURKER FRIENDS,

Due  to changing my email address to bjconklin2@gmail.com, my first SWEET NOTHINGS blog..(started in 2007) could not be controlled by me any longer.....CRAZY.

I take full blame as I am such an AIR HEAD, I didn't even realize that "gmail" was GOOGLE.
Believe me, if I had thought about it longer instead of FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY PANTS,
I would have realized that once GOOGLE gets control of your blog, IT ALL CHANGES and there seems to be NOTHING to do about it.

Sooo, I was FORCED into STARTING ALL OVER.....I decided to just GO WITH THE FLOW and hope for the best.

I lost all my sweet and loyal followers....over 1700.....I lost my original DASHBOARD and over 400 blogs that I followed. I lost my DESIGN page and LAYOUT so I lost over 200 drafts for future posts.
However,what I DIDN'T lose is my love for all of you and for blogging, itself.



My mama always told me not to "cry over spilled  milk"....so I started bj's SWEET NOTHINGS
all over again.
My exact blog address is now bj-sweetnothings.blogspot.com
I just moved the "bj" to the front of "sweetnothings" instead of the back.

I would very much appreciate you linking up to follow along with me again....and, as always, when you let me know you are following, I follow right back.

I will begin posting a little about what's going on in my life when I can get my head straight again.
Between the move, the service provider I was using selling out, and trouble....BIG TIME TROUBLE,
with blogging, it is going to take a little while.

Love to all, bj

  13. My thanks to all of you and especially my girl, Stacy. She worked for 2 straight days trying to get my old blog out of the clutches of Google. We went down but it sure was after the fight.
    She stays strong, even when her mama gets shaky.....:>)

    Thanks so much, Vee, for spreading the word...you are a gem.

    Thanks to all of you for jumping on board this new blog. I appreciate it greatly.
    Love, bj

  18. Hi BJ:

    I hopped over from Vee's blog and boy can I relate! My blog background is rerd & blue hearts, and it will probably never change! The one time I tried, I lost everything!!! Yours looks beautiful, and since I never saw your old one, I am happily becoming a first time follower.

    Keep em coming!

  29. Hello, I felt so bad for you! But I will tell you I think it is great that you are not gonna stop!
    I have stopped in many times to visit! Vee is so wonderful! She is a dear Blogging sister who is kind enough to let us know where you went to!
    Blessings, Roxy

  30. Visiting from Vee's place (as I have before for note card parties)...
    Oh my. My own blog is like a piece of my heart, an extension of me...so I can't imagine how disheartening it was to learn that your blog was gone with the click of a mouse. Kudos to you for being tenacious! Your new blog is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We will always be here for you..they will all sign up once again. You may lose some that are no longer around..but most will be back..you can bet on it! :)
    We love you, bj!! Like Cheryl above said, our blogs are an extension of us. I had no idea that gmail was google or how you could have lost it all just like that. Now I am really scared!! I signed up for blogger+ to try and download photo's but it didn't work. I just found a lot of my pictures were there is all, but since this has happened to you..I am really nervous! I am always clicking on this and that. I still do not quite understand how you could have lost your blog..so am going to go back and read it again! For pete's sakes.
    You sound tired..please, please take it easy bj. We are not exactly chickies. I turned 77 on October 8th and have been realizing more and more over the past two years that things are harder and harder for me to do.
    big hugs...I am always here!

  32. Hi bj ... so happy to see you. Feeling so bad that you lost your Blog. I just do not know how that happens. I lost mine when I first started, but Donna at Funky Junk helped me find it. It was enough to make me leave blogging. It is hard to start over, but you have the right attitude and you can do it. You have a lot of love and support here in Blogland. Hope things are going well with getting settled in the new home.
    Loving you ...

  34. How fun it was to find you via Vee.....all good things are worth passing on. I'll be back.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my dear lady!. I read that on facebook but thought o myself oh it will come back probably just a glitche. I know about starting over myself...but it all works out in the end. So glad you didn't throw in the towel.

  45. First, your amazing friend Nana Diana has put the word out, if anyone can help she can. I"m so sorry you lost your blog, I lost mine for a week after I made a domain change. That was no fun, and it's only back because of the kindness of strangers, and bloggers.

    I hope that everything goes well in your new "land". Sometimes a unexpected change can turn out to be something good.

  50. I panicked about the same thing when we moved and changed email addresses , but I am able to use my blog by adding my new email address as a " contributor" . It took some " relearning" but I think I finally have it figured out and didn't have to start all over. Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete

  55. Been wondering what happened to you. Figured you were busy with the move. I do not dare change anything or I would be in big trouble. I am not too computer smart and have no one to help me. You need not be concerned, your friends are still there and will be back.I will let Mr. Depp know he may not be able to reach you for awhile. Hang in.

  56. I am a new follower though nana Diana blog) and can't wait to see what's in store... Sorry about your blog.. and thanks for letting us know.. I won't be changing my email on google..

    ReplyDelete
  57. So sorry BJ. I am with you about computer knowledge. It makes me so mad and I don't want to spend hours and hours getting things working. I changed my email address to gmail as well. My yahoo would change the spelling of grammy to gramnvy when someone replied....still does. I changed everything I could on my blog but the emails still go mostly to yahoo. We all love you and will follow you at this new blog address. (((((HUGS)))

  58. Hi BJ! I am your 53rd follower. Heard about you from NanaDiana and this is my first ever visit. So sorry about your blog, that is something that makes all of us bloggers sick just to think about. Love the name of your blog and look forward to reading more.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi BJ, just joined again and will look forward to new posts. I will put this new address in on my blogroll but am wondering if I should delete the old one on the blogroll? Or is that one the only way I could look at old posts?

    You've gotten through lots of changes recently so you will get through this one too. Just keep on enjoying life and telling us about it!

  60. Hi BJ... I popped over from Vee's. You would think that Google would actually have a live person you could call and get it straightened out but I hear that is not the case. I would be very upset if I could not control my own blog.

  61. Sorry to hear about your problems, but on the plus side, if you hadn't had them, Diana wouldn't have sent me here! Looking forward to getting to know you :)

  63. Oh my goodness, BJ, what a thing to happen!! You had been blogging for quite a while; I'm really sorry to hear you lost all your material and your blogroll, dashboard, etc. I'm glad you shared this with us because I might have done the same thing, not realizing what would happen. I'm glad Vee told us where you are; she's such a great blogging friend. :) I'm going to follow you right now -- hope you'll follow back.

  66. Hi BJ! I am so sorry to hear about all of your troubles. I guess I would like to understand better what happened so I don't do the same thing! I have only been blogging since this summer so I am very new at it. What exactly did you change that caused all of the problems? I am going to do some research...they say it has even been on facebook...I guess I missed it! Anyway, your blog looks lovely and I will be following you! Blessings!

  110. Oh you poor Dear...I would be devastated. Heck, I AM devastated...I came to your blog to look for recipes all the time, besides to comment on your latest post.
    I had no idea that would happen.

    Let me leave you with the comforting thought that
    "Hitler had thousands of followers, Jesus just had twelve".
    I just re-followed you.

  116. BJ, I came back here to tell you I don't think your old blog is gone!!
    I just went to my old emails & tried clicking on a former post that you put up about a pink ribbon & it opened up perfectly. It is still up...you just can't access it for some reason!!!

    I can't email you about it because the only email addy I have is the xanadoo one.
    Call one of those grandkids & see if they can't help you recover your blog.

  118. Oh my goodness, what a terrible thing! I'm so glad Martina let us know or I might have lost you for a while. Just think of all the delicious food I'd miss drooling over! :) I hope you get every single one of those 1700 followers back plus a few extra hundred!

  123. Oh how sickening! Mine was shut down unexplainably twice so I decided to publish it as I didn't want to ever lose everything completely and I try to do it every 6 months. So so sorry that happened.

  125. I saw your note about losing your blog at Shelia (Note Songs), and came right over to follow you! So here I am! I know you are just sick about losing all your hard work! But as word gets out, all your 'old' followers will come running over, I'm sure! Take care!!
