I didn’t realize it at first (until my no. of visitors nose-dived) but I had messed up the Google Webmaster tools verification. This apparently temporarily blocked all of my blogs for a few days as a security matter (at least through WordPress and Google), maybe for most of the week. I apologize for that as I’m still getting used to WordPress. So I may reblog them just to be safe.
But using the Alternative Verification Method procedure I got that straightened out. So I should be up and running and viewable again. I’m figuring this filly out, slowly but surely.
