My son has been trying to get me to change my E-mail from AOL to Gmail for a long time. As a creature of habit I have resisted, but when over the weekend AOL decided I was a spammer or low-life of some sort and started periodically blocking me from sending e-mails I decided to make the change.
The picture above is the result. I thought it would be simple, but it has not gone well. I got the Gmail account opened, and went about changing my e-mail address in all the places I thought it needed to be changed. It turns out that a Gmail address cannot be a primary address for Blogger (who knew?). I'm not really sure what that means, but it has left me having to sign into my blog with my old AOL e-mail address, but using my new Gmail password. Can you even guess how long it took me to figure that out? I also have to go into Blogger through sort of a back door from the way I used to go in. I figured that out after being told over and over that I do not have a blog.
As it stands now, I still have both e-mail accounts and am getting all of my e-mails, I think, and am getting blog comments in one or the other or sometimes both of them. AOL still tells me from time to time that I am a scumbag spammer and won't let me send an e-mail. I will get some help to get it all figured out, but I called my son so many times over the weekend that he started answering his phone "Tech Support".
If I don't respond to a comment or if I reply three times to the same comment or any other strange e-mail thing over the next few days, please forgive me. (If I send you a blank reply, well, that is just normal...I seem to have been doing that a lot lately).
And, yes, it is okay to laugh.
