The Holiday Hiatus Post

Hi, everyone. This is going to be my last post for 2012. I've decided to spend the last two weeks of the year on a blog hiatus. I like to enjoy this time of year, but I also have some other projects that I need to work on before the New Year. It also gives me a bit of time to spend shooting, so I'll have something to share here later.

The Daily Blog Blackout

Over the past few days, my daily blog e-mails weren't going out. It was driving me crazy trying to find the problem. Here's a taste of how it works.  The blog broadcast and the Facebook Page updates are tied to the RSS feed. That got broken, so everything downstream stopped working. With all of the changes I've been making to the site lately, I had a lot of areas to check out trying to find the culprit. Theme changes, new plugins, a switch to a different hosting system – the possibilities and combinations were excessive.

It turns out that everything broke because there was an extra blank line in a configuration file. Right at the end, so you can't see it. That blank line sent the RSS feed into a royal tizzy. I finally found it and fixed the problem yesterday, and then all of the pent up posts started flowing out again. My apologies for any inconvenience. At least now I know of that little issue so it won't happen again.

Since I'm going out on a holiday hiatus, some of you may wonder from a previous post if that means I'm heading out to Las Vegas. Not this year. My mother expressed her wish for me to stay home with the family, so that's what I'm going to do. Las Vegas will be there for another trip.

We celebrate Christmas in my family, so I'll leave you with a nice little memory and wish everyone the best. I'll be back to my regular posting schedule after the start of the New Year.

Merry Christmas
