If you tried to visit my site earlier today and had trouble it was probably due to a plugin that I just started using the other day.
I added the SezWho WP plugin to my site sometime last week. This plugin allows you to rate others comments and even see where else on the web they’ve been commenting lately. Likewise, the blog owner can be tracked on the web through their comment profile on SezWho as well.
I had been using the plugin on one of my other sites for a few months, but when EntreCard partnered with Sezwho last week I decided to add the plugin to two more blogs.
Unfortunately it seems that when you use the plugin your blog is connected to the Sezwho network and if Sezwho goes down or experiences server slow downs so does your blog.
After I got back from the beach I discovered that the sites using Sezwho weren’t loading properly and when I tried to access the Sezwho website I couldn’t reach it either. So I turned off the plugins. Problem solved.
SezWho appears to be up and running again now. Their blog says they had a Kernel crash this afternoon and that was the cause of the problems. Still I think I might just keep the plugins turned off for another day just to make sure they’ve corrected their server problem.
In other news … I’m still trying to find ways to supplement my at home income. Blogging and maintaining my websites brings in a fairly good income but I’m looking for other ways to earn a living from home. Anyone have any tips on good small business opportunitites – definitely not scammy ones please! I seem to be doing well with internet related opportunities so I guess I’m looking for something else to add to my internet earnings.
