Alas, My Blog Is Not Lost!

Earlier this week, my website went down. There was a snafu with the hosting – where for some reason, my new website hosting plan {for the web geeks out there} wouldn’t apply to this domain name. Which resulted in my hosting service having to switch things around manually. Which concluded with everything being deleted from my website.

mommy blogger, mom blog., mommy blog, mom community, mommy forum, how to start a blog, how to write a blog, start a blog, write a blog, how to blog, blogging better, blog better, wahm, work at home mom, how to work from home, work at home guide, work from hom guide, work at home mom, blogging voice, writing voice, write better, writing better,

So after sitting on hold with them for fifteen minutes, crying my eyes out as I waited for a representative to tell me that all was not lost, I got the answer I had been waiting for: they could still pull the information and send it to me. Which they did. Which I then restored to my site. And voila: I’m back. Hopefully this means that I will never have to deal with something like this again. Seriously.

And now you might be sitting here staring at your computer thinking…”seriously? She sat there crying over her blog?” Why yes, my friends. I did. Because here’s the thing about blogging: you pour your heart, soul and time into curating this little piece of the internet. Over time you become quite attached to your website – for me, it was devastating to think of losing my entire account of pregnancy. The birth of my baby. The story of how I met – and married – my hubby. So yes. I cried over the idea of losing my blog. And I’m not afraid to admit it!

Tell me in the comments: Have you ever experienced the loss of your blog, even for a minute? How scary was it for you?

    I deleted my blog to make room for baby and I thoroughly miss blogging.

      You should start one again! They’re such a nice outlet when you’re constantly caring for little ones :)

    I haven’t lost the blog but just yesterday I published a post at work an my buddy said the embedded FB video wouldn’t work. It was a very emotional post about missing my kids and the video drove my message home, so I freaked out and frantically spent 15 minutes fixing it, even though I was AT MY JOB! I totally get where you are coming from and am glad you got it back :D

      I’m glad other people freak out and not just me. :D

        Haha I think everyone does. Some of us just have a habit of admitting it online ;)

      Ohhhmigosh I am so glad I got it back too! It was honestly one of the saddest things ever. Which I’m not so sure I should admit…
