Greetings From Bill Grimes On The Captain’s Blog
Please accept my apology for any inconvenience caused if you were having trouble accessing the Captain’s Blog. Hooray, it is fixed, and functioning better than ever. Thank you for your patience.
I received numerous emails, phone calls, and face to face conversations wanting to know what was wrong. I explained it was like an electrical short, sometime the wires were touching and the spark would open the blog and frequently it would short out and off. It took me three days to make the post, Golfing Amazon Style, From The Fringe. Ohhh, it was frustrating.
We discovered the problem was connected to upgrading to WordPress 2.8. Some plugins were not compatible. The upgrade caused more trouble than it was worth, one of those cases where “If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.”
The worst consequence was the Captain’s Blog went from over 600 views per day to around 200 views for 11 days. Yesterday and the day before, since the repair was successful we got back up to 300 views. Hopefully in the near future, if I post more valuable content, I will earn back most of my loyal readers.
The Captain’s Blog is a unique source of independent information for tourists and ex-pats, about Iquitos, (with hotel and restaurant reviews), over 200 articles about the reserves, rivers, and rainforest, recommended tours and cruises, and an insight of what you can see and do in and around our charming river port city.
Thank you for your continued support. You are my most valuable asset and the reason the Captain’s Blog exists.
