Failure of shortened links

I hate when shortened links using tiny url or bitly websites don't work. There's no figuring out why, at least in my admittedly limited grasp of things internet related. And there also seems to be no fixing them. Create them again and you get the same configuration of characters and they dont work either.

But that's what has happened in my previous blog about the south of France stories I wrote last month. One of them is something I am really proud of, but people have let me know that it comes up "not found" when they use the link I created and listed. The idea is to make a shorter link.. one that fits into the 140 character parameters of twitter posts.

But the story I really want you to see can be found at  That's the long link, not the shortened one. You should be able to click on it and go right to the story. ... or cut and paste it into your browser and see it that way.

Now if that doesn't work, all I can suggest is that you rely on the print edition of the paper. I'm a subscriber myself, are you?
