When Your Lists on Medium Disappear
I logged in today
To enjoy a catch-up sort of day
The girls back at school, it’s been a long time coming
My eyes have been summer slumming
A little time before my own schooling starts
A precious commodity to consume the arts
Responses and articles filled lists to the brim
Heart and mind aching for the reading to begin
There was nothing I was willing to miss
Oh the beautiful gift of bulging lists
NOW… what to do
They are all gone without a clue
What the f*&^( happened
The lists were my guide, my map and…
Well — there’s nothing left for it
But to dive blindly into the hole for rabbits
Since I calmed myself down
Through this rhyming clown around
The wandering now begins
Through these golden walled Medium shenanigans
Eeek…. I logged in today to find all my lists and notifications had been wiped…wiped clean… like I was on Medium for the first time.
I checked my phone app — same thing.
Refreshed the computer — same thing.
W H A T___H A P P E N E D ?!
Grateful to know that the words are all still there to find… just have to freeball it for a bit. Exciting I guess in some ways.
It comes with a timely reminder to do the backup thing me thinks!
Left wondering though — anyone else run into this issue of late…or ever?!
Might hold off on using these lists for a bit…seem a bit glitchy…or is that just for this twitchy account holder?
Ok — well no more delay — off to explore worlds through I say! Hooray!
Thanks for reading
Thanks for being you
PS — Does anyone know what has happened to Terry Mansfield? Hopeful this is a computer glitch too… I can’t find his profile anywhere…
