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.
