Something weird is going on with my links and it’s VERY frustrating. And exceedingly odd. Let me see if I can describe this clearly and succinctly. I doubt it.
Up until now, all of the links have worked with no problem. As of this morning, the first seven links still behave fine.* However, beginning with link #8, The Other Mother, I get a bit of a twilight zone experience. That link, and every one subsequent to it except the VERY last one (Trixie Update) take me to the correct blogs… but only to the most recent post on or before December 11. It is as if time has stopped on December 11 for those blogs only. Yet I know there are more recent posts on several of the blogs. I read the more recent posts — FROM MY LINKS — yesterday or sometime between December 12-15. But now I can’t get to them, no matter what I do.
Now here’s where it gets REALLY weird. I have tried going directly from the address bar, typing in the blog address. Same deal. I have gone from OTHER PEOPLE’S LINKS. Still December 11 or earlier. AAAAAAAGH. I want my blogs. I need my blogs.
My current, incomplete hypothesis is that something in my links is somehow corrupting my browser’s date function with regard to those specific blogs. If I go to somebody else’s links (like Julie’s big list) it’s hit or miss. I’ll see up to date posts on some of the blogs, others are stuck at that stupid Dec. 11. It does not seem to be host-dependent (meaning, both Typepad and Blogger blogs are affected, but some of both types are UNaffected). Dooce and Trixie Update, which use wicked fancy hosting/scripting, are unaffected.
I don’t get it and I don’t like it. Any suggestions will be welcomed!
*Except for one link to a blog that’s no longer active, but that is as it should be.
