I’m not entirely sure what happened, but for a few days last week this blog was lost.
As in, completely gone, right off the Internets. Nine years of musings lost forever.
A part of me wasn’t too upset that I might not have this blog anymore. Life has been far too busy this past year to write on a regular basis.
But I was quite disturbed that all of my writings may have vanished into thin air.
I know, back up your files! Well, I’ve backed up everything else that was important: family photos and music. I hadn’t gotten around to making copies of my blog posts.
Luckily, I discovered that Google has kept a cached copy of my blog feed for the past 1000 posts. Good enough, I thought. But then, after three days of head-scratching, the technicians at my host company were able to reset the database on my site, and everything was back to normal.
Now to back up those blog posts properly. At the very least, I think my kids might want to read back through them some day. Just for giggles. Or for parenting advice.
I’m glad my blog isn’t lost.
