Examiner.com pages interrupted

Some of you might know that my gluten-free career began when I started writing on Examiner.com. That site offered me a great platform to get my writing feet wet and I'll always appreciate the opportunity afforded me by the website. When I left the site, I went onto better and much more fulfilling positions and I've just taken on an exciting new position that I can't actually talk about yet. Anyone and everyone that has ever followed my work is in part responsible for my success and I can't thank you all enough for making my dream of helping others living gluten-free come true!

Recently, someone contacted me asking why I had taken their website link down from my Examiner.com page. Well, since I don't go on the site anymore - and can't access the pub tool - I was totally taken aback by this question. Sure enough, almost all the link boxes (that took many hours to post) were missing from my Atlanta and Travel pages on the site. At last check, there was a B&B link box still up on the travel page so I'm not sure what's up there. In any case, I assumed that someone (likely an editor) changed the pages because I don't write there anymore. Then I decided to check the page of a current writer on the site and sure enough - all their links were also gone. In the case of that person, all the links went to the Examiner's own work on the site so it made no sense that those links were down. Finally, through people I know from the site (not gluten-free people by the way), I found out that there are some technical difficulties going on with the website.

The issues should be resolved soon (with improvement to the site), but if my links don't reappear on the pages I used to maintain on Examiner.com, I won't be able to put them back up. You need access to the pub tool in order to do that and truthfully, I can't spare the hours it would take to re-do the links if I could get into the site. So, I apologize for this situation which is annoying to say the least. As I have time, I'll be creating some new link lists on this site. I'm sorry for any inconvenience to companies, bloggers, bakeries, authors, restaurants and the like - and thanks for understanding.
