COINKYDINK?

Many religions and philosophical beliefs believe…
There are no coincidences…
But I believe they’re referring to life…
Not blogs…
But yesterday Blogger proved me wrong.
My blog post gently poked fun…
At word verifications on other people’s blogs.
I felt confident that no one would really take offense.
But I was thinking people, not Internet blog host.
But after I posted yesterday…
I was all ready to do my next favorite bloggie thing…
And that is comment on other people’s blogs…
But when I went to do it…
I got a message saying I wasn’t  following anyone.
What?
All the people I follow—GONE?!
(I really think ?! should be a new punctuation mark)
Yup!  Zip! Nada! Zilch!
And Blogger wouldn’t give me back my followers…
Till late yesterday.
So?
Was removing my followers Blogger's act of retribution…
For making fun of one of their features?
Hmm?
And has Blogger ever buggered you? Or Wordpress?
But the bigger, more philosophical question is:
Do you believe there are no coincidences?
And if so, why?

Always, Em-Musing

Ha, perhaps it is a message or maybe just a coincidence.

Blogger tends to be quirky, but I pride myself in figuring ways around constraints to make things work.

Just Blogger being quirky! That's why I don't use the dashboard anymore, because sometimes it says I'm not following anyone. But they are always there in my Google Reader.

Sorry I missed yesterdays post,I finally got the word verification thing off my blog - someone helped me. It is truly annoying.

Blogger quirky? Personally I think blogger hates me.

Coincidence - no such thing. Every little thing happens for a reason and with a purpose. Just my personal beliefs. You know how wacky I am.

That's happened to me too! Too many times in fact. I thought Blogger only hated me. :)
