I redesigned my blog in mid-September, and I merged the Business of Awesome blog in with my current one. Lots of content moved around in to new places, but when all was said and done I was looking at a lovely site with everything in its place.
Or so I thought.
Turns out that everything was in its place … if you were using Google Chrome. Using Safari? The top three graphics in my sidebar were missing. The day after I did the launch, my friend C.C. mentioned to me that the graphics were missing, but I thought it was just a loading issue on his end. After all, I could see them.
It never occurred to me to ask him what web browser he was using. Or to check some other browsers myself. You would think I learned from the last time when I had not clicked all the buttons to test things on my site. Turns out, the lesson still needed some reinforcement!
Today I decided to use Safari instead of Chrome — and there they were. Three missing graphics on my sidebar. About 15 minutes after I spotted them, my friend Jamie K mentioned them as well. *sigh*
I’m grateful that my friends are looking out for me, but I feel right now like the woman walking around with her skirt tucked in the back of her underwear. Whoops!
