Back to normal

The worse thing that could happen to bloggers like me is that when your blogs/websites are parked or cannot be found for some reason and you were not able to save back-ups. Argsh!  This was what happened to my blogs/websites a week ago.  There are some issues with the hosting and my blogs are parked.  My worries are if my host will be able to retrieve my files, the theme of my blog, the paid articles, the advertisers (what if they want the refund because their link is missing) and all the articles I wrote ever since I started blogging.  My blogs/websites are eight (8) years ago, and I have plenty of articles already.  But I trusted my host and just waiting for her to contact me and give me the xml files of my blogs.  Though, it would be very difficult to give up my themes for it is a personalized theme and I paid for it, I do not care anymore, all I care is my articles.

After days of waiting, I finally I have the copy of my xml files.  I saved it and will be waiting for the new host and then will set up again my blogs under the new host.  It is tiring setting up again my blogs, to make it look good so it will be pleasing to look at to my reader, visitors, and advertisers but it is fun.  It brings back the time when I was just started blogging and setting up my blogs.  I am happy that I can get the files of my themes, however, two of my themes are not working.  I am a bit sad, but with the help of my kind and generous friends online, (Ma Belle and Ryanne), my themes are now okay.  My worries are all gone because my blogs are back to normal now.  Lesson learned, always save xml files/back up of your blogs for future needs.

Back up my Blogs

This morning as I opened my computer to start my online stuffs, my friend asked me to view her blog site because she cannot see it.  I clicked the link she forwarded and I was shocked because her blog has gone.   Everything has gone.  I can feel she is worried but there is nothing that I can do, as I am still new in blogging.  And I am not that good when it comes to restoring a blog.  I know she will find a way because she is more experienced compared to me plus she has her husband who could help her anytime.

This is what blogger afraid to happen, when our blog site is gone all of a sudden and we do not know where to find it and how to start finding.  I am glad that she was able to restore her blog and all is back to normal.  Her frustration and worries made her discover things on how to restore a blog page.  She is indeed very good when it comes to that.  She has this ability to not give up until she gets what she wants.

What had happened to her this morning is very scary and I do not want to happen it to me.  And it is a lesson to be learn.  It is good to be ready for the possible things that might happen, I immediately save my blog page in my computer.  I saved a back up of my blogs in my computer just in case.  Who know I might need it in the future.
