Dear Niall and David,
You’re both great guys and have only been polite and kind to me. I appreciate the help you’ve given me in the past, and hope you’ll read with the good faith that’s wrapped around it.
I started writing Technorati in August of 2005. It is now almost the end of January of 2006. The original issue has never been resolved. It involved the fact that Technorati wasn’t accurately tracking links to my account and that the count kept getting stuck and links kept getting missed.
Support answered with the usual form emails. Did you know they never get back like they say they will?
Both of you answered with personal emails. They were nice. They also made some movement forward. Nice gestures. Partial fixes. Band-aids as they say.
When I said, “Hey wait! Don’t run away, are you . . .” You were already gone.
I was polite. I was patient. I only wrote every 2-3. It’s my nature to figure people are busy that they have other things to attend to. I know I often do.
Finally, I just asked for an email saying you weren’t going to do anything. I got no answer.
Here’s a screen shot. Please note I post everyday. I also hand ping you.
Here’s another screen shot. Please note that Successful Blog had over 180 links and Letting me be had over 175 twice in the past. Then they got put back for no apparent reason. New valid links came. They went up again.
I blogged twice today about Newsweek in Successful Blog. That was hours ago–trackbacked Newsweek and pinged you. It doesn’t show.
Isn’t 5 Months Patience Enough?
There it is out in the open. Obviously, there must be something I don’t get. Somewhere, somehow, this little kid from the small town has broken some unstated rule. Just what is it that I’m doing wrong? How do I get the superglue off my account once and for all?
Sometimes to be successful, you have to stand up and say something out loud.
ME “Liz” Strauss
PS. Everyone says I’m the nice one.
