Alert! (Update)

For those who didn’t see the alert yesterday, the problem still persists. I am still unable to like other blogger’s posts.  When I hit a like button it’s as if the button doesn’t work.

Also, WordPress won’t let me follow new blogs that I like- this has been going on for two and a half weeks. Im very saddened by this because I like to reciprocate and engage with my fellow bloggers. I’ve contacted support and they’ve provided no solutions as of yet. I will continue to stay in contact with them until the issue is resolved.

I’ve come to an important decision just this morning- These issues have inspired me to go ahead and go self-hosted and I will start setting up my self-hosted site on Friday. It may take me a few days to get it finished as, with WordPress.org, the self-hosted WordPress, there is a bit of a learning curve. However, I will let you all know when it’s up and running. In the meantime I will keep this site open until next year to give you all ample time to go to the new Chateau Cherie Anti-bullying site. After March 7, 2023. This original site will be gone.

In the meantime, please know that I’m not ignoring any of your posts. I will post more comments to let you know that I’m still reading your posts, I just won’t be able to “like” them.

I believe in coming up with alternative solutions to problems and posting more comments seems to be it for now.

Thank you so much for your patience. Sending lots of love your way!

Cherie

  1. I am really sorry you are facing such problems. I am sure it will be sorted out, Cherie. I am always with you. ♥️♥️♥️🌹🌹🌹

    • Thank you so much, Aparna. You don’t know how much this means. You are such an inspiring person and I’ll definitely let you know when the site is up and running. 💖🌹🌺💐

  2. Oh my God Cherie, this is tantamount (desaster) to a medium disaster. Hopefully everything will work out as you have planned. Please do not forget to inform me. That would be a real shame if we lose sight of each other.
    Love Greetings from far away. 10,000 kilometers and more.

    • Thank you so much, Linda! I will definitely inform you and everyone else when the new site is up and running! Thank you so much for your kindness and support, sweetie! It’s more appreciated than you know! 💖🌹🌺🌻

  3. Cherie, I have been having this same problem for about 10 months. I can’t follow others back so what I’m doing is to follow by email. That way I and go to followers blogs and read and like their post. That is working for me.
    I also have a note at the top of my blog for followers to know I can’t follow them because WordPress is blocking me from doing that.

    • Thank you so much, JD. For a while, I was following via the web and going straight to their URL. But that isn’t working now. I’ll definitely follow by email. Thank you so much for the advice! It’s much appreciated! 💖🌹🌺

  4. WordPress behaves differently for me between my iPad mini, Android phone and PC. sometimes it can be frustrating, especially after you’ve written a long comment and it just disappears!!

  5. WordPress has been plagued with problems. They tried to change the maximum number allowable followers and how much space had been used ….. I’ve noticed a significant drop in daily visitors. I anxiously await to hear about your change to self hosted, as I’ve considered the same.

    • Thank you so much for sharing this information. I got an email saying they’ve flagged my site. So I will definitely be going self-hosted and I’ll start the ball rolling on Friday. It may take me a few days to get the new site up and running but I’ll definitely let you know when I’ve completed it. Sending lots of love your way! 💖💖💖💖💖

  6. I’m sorry your experiencing problems like this 🙁 Please let me know when you put up the new site. I wanted to introduce you to my own readers and put your site up in my English-language Blogs section. If you tell me when the new site is up, I’ll replace this one when the time comes 🙂

    • Oh, thank you so much, Celt! You don’t know how much this means and I’ll definitely let you know when the new sitebis up and running. I’ll start setting it up tomorrow!

  7. Dear Cherie … I’m sorry you’re having all these difficulties with WordPress. I know I’ve come across a fair few glitches in the time I’ve been blogging, but I have been fortunate that the technical guys have been able to sort my issues out reasonably quickly. I can’t imagine why they haven’t been able to do the same for you. What a real nuisance for you and an inconvenience too. However, I’m very happy to hear you will continue to write on your self-hosted site, and please do let me know when this is up and running as I will definitely be there to follow you and spur you on as I guess it’s a big decision to have had to make. Good luck with it all, not that I’m going anywhere in the meantime! Much love to you and may you go from strength to strength as I’m sure you will. Take care, dear friend. Xx 💜💐❤🌼💛

    • I’ll definitely let you know when the new sitebis up and running, Ellie! Thank you so much for your kindness and support, sweetie! You don’t know how much I appreciate you! You’re one of those readers and fellow bloggers who inspire me to keep writing and and pushing on and I couldn’t be more grateful! 💖💐🌹🦋💞😍🥰😍🥰

  8. I sometimes have this issue too, but can usually work round it. Sometimes it is a simple as pressing the like button a few times till it works, others it seems I”m not being recognised as being logged in to my WP account so doing that can solve the issue. I hope this gets sorted for you soon – good luck!

    • Sadly, it won’t, Clive. I got an email from Auttomatic, the parent company of WordPress.com saying that my site has been flagged. The message I got was that a new algorithm put a cap on the number of posts I could like and blogs I could follow- it doesn’t matter whether I genuinely like the blogs or posts. This not only affects me, but other bloggers as well. It cheats them out of potential likes and follows. These people have gone full tyrant!

  9. Thank´s of a good comment, I´we had a lot of problems with my wordpress site. They keep telling me some ways to correct these issues but nothing happens and the process is quite complicated, or the way it should be handled. Bad for wordpress.

    • I just approved it. Censorship has been a thing with other social media sites for quite a few years. I guess WordPress has now jumped on the bandwagon with them. It’s a shame.

  10. Oh Cherie we were in trouble to. Could find anything in Reader all followers were missing your blog to plus one of your blogs was corrupted. WordPress. com was in trouble also due to the ongoing cyber security attacks world wide. Happy Engine we’re under attack. I can’t name the countries Due to Russian Cyber Attacks. WordPress.org has two huge problems the expense is huge adding unknown plugins. Arm and leg furthermore there’s no support. You employ your own. Stay on wordpress.com. Finally your blog is enormous. Our advice to folk growing to 4000 plus follows is to purchase Enterprise. By WordPress. All professional plugin are included. You may pay monthly, quarterly or yearly. Cherie one of our techno at the department will be happy to advise you without cost. Upgrade stay focused. Free WordPress. com for hobby blogs is easy. Impossible to start with org with no knowledge or education about coding to survive. go in to mine look for the news section each news post has a button to press inviting our followers advise click the link the men in Australia, England and America will unravel your site. We did note your problem. In my Department as an Editor is proof reading, fack Check news. Plus illustrations. If you not able to see that link email my office in Australia tangoooo480@gmail.com ( private email) I will post back to you a link. Please remember Cherie you have a friend in me. We love you information on a very needed conversation. You were never Censored by WordPress.com. All your posting is General view Rating. You have never crossed the line. On WordPress. Com you chose your own rating. I promise you that last hiccup was not blocked or censored. It was corrupted. Cyber Attacks are the Norm today with War. Your a treasure house of comfort and solace to all. keep up the great work. Shalom 🤗🤗🤗☘️☘️🌵🌿🍀🌳🪴🌹🍃☘️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • Ohhhh, thank you so much! You don’t know how much this means to read your comment! I never thought of these kinds of problems but everything you say here makes perfect sense! I will definitely be emailing you as I need to find a way to make a living with this site since I spend so much time on it. My husband takes care of me, but his health is declining and if anything were to happen with his job or, God forbid, his life, I wouldn’t be able to continue with this site, considering I’m paying for the premium business plan every year. Understand that it’s about my readers and never about money. However, I need to monetize it so that I can, at the very least, make enough money to keep and maintain this site and at best, make a good living and start speaking publicly at schools and universities about the horrible effects of bullying. I’m definitely curious about Enterprise and I will be taking up your offer on being advised by you! Again, thank you so much for this opportunity. I couldn’t be more grateful. Also, I’ve had quite a few emails from readers who kindly ask me to keep this site up and I will do just that. Keep this site up and make a totally separate self-hosted blog on my author website. The readers, including you, have spoken and I will do as they wish. Because, on this blog, the reader is king!

      Sending lots of love and appreciation your way! 💖🌺🌹
