Are you looking for me?

I can see by the confused expressions on some of your faces (not to mention a handful of posts here) that you're wondering whats up.

I've moved.

Yes, that's right. Carpenter Creek picked up and moved to Wordpress. Go ahead and click those ruby red slippers of your's and say, "There's no place like Carpenter Creek" three times (then click the link below) and you'll be taken to me straight away!

On the Shores of Carpenter Creek

And...we're back to WP

Just click the WP link!

I'm such a Rebel!

Yeah…that’s me. A rebel! A rebel without a cause!

I cannot even tell you what a shock it was to see that my blog had been suspended. And the only way for me to contact them is via email, leaving me at their mercy in regards to when they’ll get to me. Kind of like when you call the dr and they say, on a recorded message, “Your call is very important to us, please hold until the next available operator.” And of course, you hold and hold and hold…and pretty soon you’re crossing your legs because now it’s not just the phone that you find yourself holding. Except that with email I don’t have to worry if someone hears me flushing while they’re coming on the line.

It would appear that Wordpress was concerned with the Bucking Lamb blog I had there. It violated the terms of service because it appeared to be there for one reason only; to sell things!

Shame on me, thinking I could sell stuff on the internet. Shame, shame, shame. I’m hanging my head…see? Shame.

So to rectify the situation, they suggested I put some other content in it. Okay, I can do that.

But in the meantime, they’ve also suspended my Carpenter Creek blog, and while they restored the offending blog, they’ve so far done nothing to help my poor little innocent farm blog. And what’s more…it’s Winsday! How can I have a contest for you when they’ve taken my blog away today???

I am waiting…not terribly patiently…for it to come back up. In the meantime, I’m so happy that some of you are finding your way over here to blogger again (and thankful that blogger is once again allowing me to post.)

Crazy, that's what it is, Crazy!

I went to log onto my wordpress account only to find I'd been suspended! For what? They say no ads that drive people to a third party. This is what is highlighted in the terms of service link:
the Content is not spam, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
Now, I've been having trouble getting a couple of links to work, mainly the voting link and the cafe press store. I didn't think the voting link was an issue, and only today they told me I could use the cafe press link. So what gives? And why no warning? I can't even log in to the forums.
Which leaves me back here at blogger. And I wonder if this thing will even publish for me...
