U-N-B-L-O-C-K-E-D


Several friends told me yesterday that they could access my blog here in the Kingdom, but I could not access it until this morning. It was probably something to do with my cache not being cleared (an internal computer problem).

I am officially up and running now. Whew! I still don't have any answers as to why, but the important thing is that it has been unblocked.

My sincere thanks to everyone for your support!

  28. Susie,
    How did your husband and his family react to your blog being banned? I'm so glad you were unblocked as the work you're doing/message you're sending the world is so wonderful. And it is truly an adventure for us to be able to travel with you through your thoughts, feelings and experiences in the KSA. I just love it!

  29. Thank you to everyone for your kind comments!

    @ Kalyco - Actually, I didn't tell my husband about it for several days because I was afraid he would want me to stop blogging altogether! But when I told him, all he said was that I probably wrote something somebody didn't like, and that was it. Then a couple more days later, it was unblocked, so it wasn't much of an issue around our house - whew! I haven't discussed it with any of his other family members, so I'm not sure if they were aware.
