One site is down...write on the other

I got up early today and decided I stay in bed for a little longer, but want to be in the same time and spend my time writing. I grabbed my laptop and opened my Bubbl ews account to check how my post did last night. Well it did not get hardly any attention.

Before getting extremely disappointed I remembered that probably there was some site issues earlier. In the past , I would just hope that everything was back to normal and would try to post. Now, I can check the status of the site thanks to the post of AdrienneJenkins She includes a link in her article to the status page that keeps everybody updated whether the site is running smoothly or not. It is a really neat feature.

I just checked the page and there are still issues over there. That is not worth to try and write anything now, instead I will spend my time on .

I'll check back later to see what's going on before I try to submit anything new.

I have never seen a problem with Persona Paper, in those ocassions where the site is being updated, there is an advance notice so everyone knows what is going on.

nbaquero true, maybe other sites could learn from it too. :) I hope it will stay like that once will have more members. I like the fact that they try to keep the spammers away from the beginning, that can prevent lots of problems in the future.

kelemenk Oh yes this site is much cleaner allowing for better and more meaningful interaction.

That's one of the major reasons why I wanted to branch out and away from Bubblews. The site was always down whenever I had some free time to write. Now I write for several sites, so I don't mind the time when the site over there is down. I'm glad to see that Persona Paper is a bit more professional about their down time. I wish Arvind would get with the program.

I noticed your latest post goes to an internal server error too. I don't know what to tell you because the official link says everything is fully operational.

I also wrote a post on Bubblews about the site status page. I find at this point that it's pretty useless. It's not listing many issues, such as the disappearance of many posts about two nights ago or the fact that the Pixabay image library isn't functioning reliably.

Yes it is good to have a few options all the time.

It is nice to have more than one place to write. This is only my second one.

This is the beauty of having join more than one site, when it is down on the site we can come to the other site that is up and running. I wish they let members know when they site is going to be down and inform every member of its scheduled maintenance.
