You know you're a failure when you can't even successfully spread herpes.
In a moment of frustration, I tweeted @Blogger seeking assistance. One of my favorite tweeters, @rklau from the Blogger team, responded. If only I would forward him my blog url and feed url, he would gladly take a look.
There are two reasons I like him, by the way. The first (and main reason) is that he always responds to my questions that I fear will never be heard out in the darkness, usually with very specific and helpful information. The second is that his Twitter avatar leads me to believe he might be sorta cute.
So of course as soon as I sent him the information he needed, the post magically showed up in my Google Reader. My joy was short-lived when I realized "I've just sent the cute Blogger guy to my blog - and my entry today is announcing that I have an STD."
Oh. No. I. Didn't. Except that I totally did.
In a panic, I replied to him one last time:
Ok, thanks so much for taking a look. And I don't really have an STD. bc now I'm kinda mortified..."
He never replied to that. Probably because he never noticed the specifics of my post. So now he thinks I'm just some random scary girl sending him messages about STDs.
I'll never hear from him again, I'm sure. In fact, I'll be lucky if Twitter doesn't suspend my account for being a skanky sex spammer.
P.S. The delay of my blog (and apparently others because contrary to my beliefs, it isn't all about me) reaching Google Reader is some known communication issue between the two that they're working on. Umm, dude, Google owns both Blogger and Reader. Surely someone knows someone that can fix this?
