Thank Heavens for Joan Stewart's Leads to Google Trouble Shooting!

As you know I sometimes share tips I've used in my SharingwithWriters newsletter with you on this blog, too.  Not always, though. Thus, you can subscribe to the letter at http://howtodoitfrugally.com; the subscribe window is in the upper right corner of almost every page.

I've had a terrible time trying to get Google to reinstate all the perks and benefits of having this blog--you know little things, like being able to post images!  Ahem!

Maybe you are having trouble with a disappearing YouTube page. Maybe you've been putting off using Google Plus even after I tell you what a handy networker it is!  You can bookmark this post on How to Contact Google Support for a whole lot of tips and aids:

Thanks to Publicity Hound Joan Stewart for this tip. I often recommend her newsletter because she includes great stuff like this in it (see below for subscribe information). She says, "Don't expect Google to respond to all your questions, however. That's why the list includes discussion forums devoted to Google."

She also suggests this URL for help from Google's Small Business community:
http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=7n1MR&m=KgG3ERQORDtYrK&b=LTLU5b39KMmuflNi7iNig You can ask a question and get a helpful answer from Steve Hovnanian or its five volunteer moderators, but don't be surprised if they use advanced tech jargon.  Heck, you can always expose your own lack of knowledge by asking for clarification. Others may benefit when you do.
