This blog post will not teach you anything. It’s filled with sarcastic remarks and ramblings and you’ll understand why soon enough.
Yes, this is a rant!
Now allow me to entertain you for a short while.
The mamoth directory that is Technorati has claimed that my blog is NOT IN ENGLISH – since June of last year. Huh…You can imagine my surprise when I found out I’d been writing in another language this whole time!
Reminder to self: Update resume to include language being used on nittyGriddy (if there was a font for sarcasm, this is where it would be).
So of course, I did what any living human being with extraordinary blogging skills would do. I contacted them to inform them of the problem. Well folks, Technorati is just that BIG that they’re still trying to find the time to get to my emailS.
Relax…the capital “S” is not a typo!
How Not to Provide Customer Support
Since my brilliant plan of sending them a nice little note didn’t work, I then proceeded to join Get Satisfaction, Technorati’s Community-Powered Support. And boy was their support group rep helpful!
I was almost compelled to go deeper and tell her how it made me feel and what my life aspirations were, but I restrained myself as I hear this internet thing keeps your words online forever. Plus I didn’t want to have to wait another 11 months to get life changing guidance from their top-notch team.
That’s right…you heard me! Their official rep replied yesterday to over 15 or so people who had left messages on the forum 11 months ago and have somehow had the patience to continue following up.
If you don’t believe me, go back and click on the link I left you and see for yourself! You’ll find a couple of my comments in there as well.
She asked all of us to delete our claims and start all over. Ha! But to this time choose “English” as the language. And here I was hoping to trick ’em again and click on giberrish!
Well, thank you for your help! The advice was well worth the wait.
It’s funny, but until the email notice letting me know that my comment had a new reply, I had kinda forgotten about it all.
At this point…what the hell have I got to lose by trying again? Screw it, I’ll do it!
It should come as no surprise that there was no “English” option. Unless I missed it but then again my form wouldn’t have gone through had it been a required field.
I’m happy to say that they sent my claim code and asked that I insert it into my latest blog post. I tried to be sneaky and trick them by shoving it into my SuperPost Sunday that I published earlier, but alas…no luck! Their bots are too sharp lol!
The Reason for this Post
And this is why I’ve concocted this lame-ass post. All this witty rambling just to include this code so that King Technorati can see it in my feed:
Here’s my Claim “Oh Great One and King of All Blog Directories”. Can you see it now?
Not quite the claim to fame I had hoped for, but what the hell? It’s a claim nonetheless.
Ya think you can index my posts now or is there anything else I can provide you with first?
Sorry, what I meant to say was…
“Claim my frickin’ blog – please! I may want to karate chop your a** but I still think you’re the most complete and best blog directory out there.” (That was me not being sarcastic and trying to give you a real compliment.)
~Hugs and Flying Kisses~
Anybody else have interesting Technorati stories to share? Don’t be shy. Tell me what language you think Technorati thinks you’re blogging in but in fact aren’t! Did I confuse you there? Read it again. Ahhhh… ;).
