Yahoo And WordPress: Controlling Information?

I just recieved an e-mail informing me that my post will no longer feed to Yahoo. Interesting. My couple of post relating to the Boston Marathon blast has generated hundreds of hits that came from Yahoo. I am wondering why Yahoo and apparently Word-Press has an issue with this?

Hi there,

We’re getting in touch to let you know about a change in the Sharing Settings on your WordPress.com or Jetpack-powered WordPress site.

One of your sites(The Conservative Hillbilly) was previously connected to Yahoo! Updates through the Publicize feature. Yahoo! is no longer supporting their Updates API, so we’ve disabled your connection and your posts will no longer be Publicized to Yahoo! Updates (if you’ve connected any other services, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Tumblr, these will still work just as before). You don’t need to do anything, we’re just letting you know.

You can check your current Publicize connections by visiting Settings → Sharing in your Dashboard.

You can read more about Publicize in this support article.

Thanks for flying with WordPress.com!

Preppers: Sign This Hillbilly Up

I am always the one ranting about how it is a matter of time before our society takes a hard left turn over the cliff, and is plunged into a world of chaos and violence. Sounds pretty good to me, this sitting around playing golf is getting pretty boring anyways. Of course, I am partly joking, but having watched a show last night on tv about folks who are preparing for these days, I realized I might be able to kick ass and take names, but at some point I am going to run out of beer,ammo,food, and Alpo!

So I am asking for some help here: Please give me some WordPress blogs that are written by Preppers. I found one, but I hate using “google” and I can’t find a WordPress search. I can see one problem I am going to have: How the heck can I store beer, when I consume more than I can store? Yikes, sounds like I have something in common with the federal government.
