Fellow WP Bloggers – Having Prompt Pingback Problems?

Update as of about 1:oo pm my time (near Toronto, Canada so EDT) …

I have now seen a couple of replies from staff in the support forums, including for my post referenced below, that they are aware of the issue and the developers are working on a fix.  Thanks to all for your voices on this, here there and anywhere you raised them.

Looking forward to catching up on some of your terrific posts on the prompts really soon I hope!   Marianne



I know a good lot of my followers/readers are fellow WordPress bloggers, and that many of you also like to read and participate in the WP Daily Post prompt challenges like myself.  If your response to a prompt hasn’t shown up like mine didn’t on Tuesday, I’ve added a new post to the WP support forum asking for them to fix it.

If you’re in the same predicament of not being able to see or respond to prompts since Tuesday, please go here and add a comment to my original support post in the forum.  Maybe if we band together and generate lots of traffic there, they will catch sight of it and fix the pingpack glitch!

Here’s where my support post is:

Mississippi, Here’s Your Wake Up Call


Reveille is a traditional military drum or bugle signal used to awaken the troops and get them ready for assembly.  It’s a derivative of the French word réveiller.  Here in Canada, French is one of our two official languages.  We’re cool like that.  We even have some good chuckles about it at times.  Mississippi has only one official language – English.  But I wouldn’t know it from all of the discriminatory language I see in some of their legislative documents.  That is NOT a laughing matter.

Stolen Words: Life’s Railway To Heaven

Stolen Words are my compilations of lyrics used to make a new piece of prose of sorts.  The lyrics are ‘stolen’ from the songs I hear while listening to SiriusXM.  Usually, I surf my favourite channels to gather the lyrics however for this piece I was only tuned in to one channel – Willie’s Roadhouse – where they have been doing tributes to Merle Haggard.  All of the lyrics for this piece are from songs that are either Haggard originals or songs of others that he loved to perform.
