The site has been acting wonky the last week or so — some people are reporting delays as long as three of four days before they see a published post (some people figured out that if they log in, that fixes the problem temporarily). I have someone looking into the issue and hopefully it will be fixed very soon. But in the meantime, the holiday book drive post that I published yesterday morning hasn’t been seen by as many people as it could have been seen by. Still, over 115 books (out of 215 originally requested) have been purchased, which is awesome.
Thank you to those who have contributed so far. Instead of posting a new column this morning, I’ll just leave this message up for now in hopes that the site is fixed soon, everyone is able to see all recent posts, and all the books from the registries are purchased for the students for the holidays. Later today, I’ll be posting my 2013 men’s gift guide, which I worked on for like weeks, so keep an eye out for that.
Note: If you are in Canada, the link will redirect you to Amazon.ca. If you go up into the address bar and edit the address back to .com it will work.
UPDATE: The site should be fixed now. But please let me know if you’re still experiencing issues.
Also! More books have been purchased off the registries this morning. We have now collectively bought 154 of the 215 books originally requested! We’re getting close to the goal.
