Please come back!
Hi! Are you having trouble opening Farmgirl Fare? Thanks to all of you who have alerted me to the problems you've encountered lately when trying to open my blog—the page won't finish loading, your computer freezes up, etc. I really appreciate your feedback.
The issue seems to have started when Google totally revamped Blogger (my blogging platform) last month. I'll spare you the details of the many frustrating hours I've spent trying (to no avail) to figure out what the heck happened and instead skip right to what I have figured out:
If you're using Internet Explorer as your web browser, you should try switching to Firefox or Google Chrome.
Internet Explorer is notoriously slow and clunky and despised by web professionals. Firefox and Google Chrome are both safe, free, easy to install, and far better and faster than Internet Explorer. (There is also Safari, but I don't have any experience with it.)
Everyone who has reported trouble and then switched browsers was immediately able to open Farmgirl Fare and In My Kitchen Garden (my offshoot garden blog) without any problem. If that doesn't do the trick, please let me know. Thanks!
© FarmgirlFare.com, where I realize posting a notice about not being able to open a blog on that blog does seem kind of pointless, but I know that a lot of you who are using Internet Explorer will still be able to see this short post via your feed reader or Feedblitz e-mail subscription or on the Farmgirl Fare Facebook page.
