The last three years of my blog’s content was deleted. Three years worth of articles, photos, design changes, and comments- gone. I was having a lot of buggy issues with the blog and WordPress so I asked Brian to help me fix it. He followed the advice of some person on YouTube without properly backing up my database and opps…gone.
We were able to recover the earliest articles but all my most recent content is gone forever. Technology can be so frustrating and unforgiving. I was sad, after all it’s three years of memories and work but I decided not to dwell on the loss and just move on.
I will rewrite some posts, specifically “How to Make Fireflies in a Bottle” but all the rest of it, we’ll just forget. I’m using this opportunity to start fresh with new posts and an all new design. You are looking at the new blog design right now. I hope you like it.
So, if you’re looking through my index and see a huge gap in articles, you now know why.
Thank you for reading and if you have a blog back. it. up. 🙂
Update: A very kind reader informed of an Internet Archive called the Wayback Machine. This site takes “snap shots” of websites and saves them. Basically, through copy and paste, I was able to restore all my old posts! Thank you Wayback Machine and thank you dear reader!
