Passwords – Ahhhhhh!

Wayyy back in January when I first signed up with WordPress I had to use an email address, but I didn’t want to use my main one.  They didn’t accept hotmail, however, so I used this other email service called Bigstring

With Bigstring, as per usual, I needed a username and password.  After getting the Big string email set up I went and signed up with WordPress needing again, of course, a username and password.  Now fast forward to present day when I finally decided to start using my WordPress blog. 

I knew my username but had forgotten the password to WordPress.  The computer had, thankfully, “remembered” it, however.  Yay! 

Today, I put my little notification on Blogger about switching.  Then zipped over here to write my welcome post.  Then my computer suddenly froze up.  I’m sure it has a mind of it’s own because it does the weirdest things sometimes.  It’s like there is a little man (like in the Wizard of Oz) sitting inside laughing his ass off at me. 

Eh hem, but I digress.

Annywayy, as a result of the timely freeze up I was kicked out of Internet Explorer.  When I went back to WordPress my password was gone.  Grrr.  Okay.  No problem.  I clicked on the “forgot your password?” link.  Then the “don’t worry – your password has now been emailed to you” message came up.  Wait a minute, I realized.  I used that other “Stringy” email thing.  Shhh%^%^.  Okay.  No problem.  I go to that website and hope the computer has saved all of my passoword info.  ——Nnnope.  No such luck.  I click on the “forgot your password?” link – again – and was asked for my username.  Which I forgot!  So, I sat there for ten minutes, or so, trying different possible usernames.

I’d spent more time than I’d like to admit fiddling around, and decided maybe this is a sign that I shouldn’t switch blogs….Well, not really.  I didn’t think it was a sign.  What I WAS thinking was “stupid, f&*&*g PASSWORDS!!!!!!”

As a last ditch effort I went to the WordPress home page to try and sign in there, AND sure enough it worked!  The computer remembered the password.  Sheesh.  I still don’t even know my password, but I did go in and switch the email address.

    I see you are trying out a new look – are you changing the header picture?

  3. debbiemomof2 says:

    Yes. I used a picture I took while we were in Jasper last year.

    Wow, I am glad I have Sirdar to do all the fiddling around in blog land. I have been trying new stuff and find i have to do some of that, but I always no Sirdar can fix whatever I muck up. Nice new home.

    I’ve done that before and its very frustrating, glad you were able to figure it out though!

  7. Sirdar says:

    I use one password for pretty much everything. I sure hope nobody figures it out 😯

    I usually do, too. I had to go and be different this time, though, of course.
