Help….I Disappeared!!!!

Well…..my blog did anyway!  What a wreck!  As I warned a post or two back my blog might go away because my .com domain expired and I wasn't sure what would happen.  It's like starting all over again as a new blogger.  I tried for 2 months to get my .com domain renewed...to no avail….and soooo, it finally went into expired mode this week.  I did switch back to my old blogspot.com address, but since the .com address is void there was no way for me to post on it to let everyone know.  I have been sending out emails and leaving comments on blogs to try and let everyone know what has happened and to let you all know how to find me again.

If you follow me on Bloglovin, Feedly, etc. and click on my link it will take you to go daddy.com……aaarrghggh!

If by chance you are seeing this…..where ever you have me listed…..check and change my blog address to:

www.browndirtcottage.blogspot.com

There are A LOT of foreign gals who are following my clamshell quilt tutorial who will not be able to find me now and I have no way of notifying them…….aaarrghgghhgh!!!

I am working with Bloglovin and others to try and get this remedied.

So for now…..sniff sniff….I feel like a new baby blogger that no one knows about……sniff….


If by chance you are seeing this I would appreciate a comment…..just to let me know!  I will be soooo excited if someone sees this post.

Thanks to all my regular readers and friends who have kept up with me through all these last 5 years!!

                                                                              

 My life on the farm…….Cotton Harvest is in full swing here……"fat quarters in the making"

the link came to me through Feedly as well, so it may be redirecting properly. I hope so!

Patty said...

Thanks so much for showing the cotton being harvested. My husband just took a quick trip south on Thursday to New Roads, Louisiana, to buy a tractor. We traveled from central Missouri down 65 through Arkansas, then back up on 61 through Mississippi. I saw cotton in the field for the first time and wished I could have seen some being harvested. We stopped and I picked a stalk that had been left standing in a field to show my granddaughters. We mainly just raise corn and soybeans here.

I am seeing you and the harvest! I am not sure how I got here though. I am thinking one of my regular routes to see you.

Now I remember. I was on the old block lotto and they have that side bar with the blogs of players. Anyway, I click on it because I saw that it was a new post!
Karen called just as I clicked on it and we talked and then I forgot what I was doing till I looked at the tabs that were open.

Terry said...

I'm here! LOL Love the "fat quarters in the making"! :o)

Mary said...

I thought you might want to know I got here by clicking on a link to your page on Em's Scrapbag blog.

Thanks for the email. We also live in cotton country and have been watching the harvesting.

Barbara said...

I can see you! And I can see your cotton fields - they are beautiful!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I found you on bloglines.com - I have used them forever to follow blogs - they are so much better than anything else around - not annoying like bloglovin' - ick. I put your new URL in from your email and it came right up today - glad to see you are up and running again.

Gail in Vegas said...

I love the idea of fabric being made from the cotton!
Sorry you are having such online issues - it can be wonderful or terrible!

Nancy said...

I'm so sorry about your blog problems. I hope they get resolved soon. I'm glad I'm still able to find you.

Thanks for sharing the cotton harvest photos. I always envisioned cotton being harvested when the plants were still green and was surprised when, a year or so ago, I searched for photos and found white against brown. I wrote a post with a quote from a book about cotton (at http://joyforgrace.blogspot.com/2012/09/cotton.html) in which the author talks about the flowers turn from white to pink to red to purple. True? He also described the field of cotton as a "hallelujah chorus of white."

Thanks again for sharing the photos. I love them!

HI~ I can see you~!

Mary K said...

I just click on my blog side bar. Your updates still show for me.

I come from a family of wheat farmers. It sure was cool seeing how cotton was harvested.

Thanks

Mary said...

Good Morning, I have you on the dashboard, blogger. Not fun when things go awry with this blogging thing! Have a great day.

Janet said...

So interesting to see your cotton harvesting pictures! Just think of all the possibilities of that fluffy white cotton :0)

Lori said...

I've found you! I didn't realize cotton was harvested so late in the year.

Patti said...

You turned up this morning on Bloglovin. We are full swing corn harvest here in Mi.

Denise in PA said...

Got your email and you showed up in my Feedly Reader. Yay! But, how frustrating for you. Hopefully, everyone will find you!

Sharon said...

Your blog still shows up on the side bar on my blog, plus I got your email. I "googled" your blog name and the blogspot addy came up 3rd on the list, so I'll bet folks can find you if they want to.

Thanks for sharing the cotton harvest pictures. Isn't it nice to not have to pick by hand? My mom grew up doing that in Miss. and hated it. I found a picture on-line of a cotton spinning mill in Miss. taken in the little town she was from and at about the time she was born. It most likely had my grandfather's cotton in there! That was fun to see!
