RIP baby blogIt’s a tale of woe.  My poor little newborn blog died.  At least it was quick.  It didn’t suffer.  The only thing suffering around here was me.  And my family from dealing with me.  Oh yeah, and my hosting provider fromdealing with my many and sometimes weepy phone calls.  Ok, so everyone suffered a little bit.  But don’t worry. The little baby blog didn’t.  It passed away in it’s sleep.

I’m not sure what happened.  One minute I was blogging away as happy as a lark, then suddenly it was malfunctioning all around me.  I don’t think I did anything.  It might have been that last plugin update.  I’m seriously suspicious of the autosave function.  Or it might have been some evil attack on my poor defenseless site.  Whatever the cause it’s all gone now.  Wiped clean.  Fresh slate.

My hosting service was trying to look into the problem but they were taking way too long.  I suggested to them that since I really only had a couple of weeks worth of material, maybe we should just uninstall the software and start anew.  They were more than happy to agree.

Luckily I had saved most of my posts.  Unfortunately your wonderful comments are lost forever.  That makes me pretty sad.  But I’ve learned lots of good lessons that are better learned a couple of weeks into this experience rather than a couple years in.  I’ve got the majority of the posts back up.  By tonight I should have the styling of the site and plugins back in order.  I’ll be backing up my files nightly and this place will be locked down tighter than Alcatraz.  Then I’m going to have a few drinks.

Sorry for the interuption there.  I was writing in the midst of it.  I’m posting something new right now.  Thanks for bearing with me.

Welcome back! We missed you. And by “we” I mean myself and my handicidal cat. The only two I can truly speak for. Though I’m pretty sure that your other readers missed you too.
