So my little blog here used to be hosted by Yahoo, but there were really a lot of limitations and they charged me a whole lot of money each year to put up with them, and I was just all around sad about the whole website thing. So when my annual renewal came due, I called my slightly more web-savvy sister and said, “Do I pay them for another year or jump ship?!” She told me to jump ship, so I backed up my site, signed up with her recommended host, and told Yahoo I was leaving for good.
And then the whole world came crashing down on me.
Well, actually, they just gave me an unusable file of all my blog data and it’s all lost forever. Very dramatic.
I must tell you that I’m trying very hard to be reasonable about the loss. It’s a blow, but I’m really trying to keep it all in perspective. I mean, it’s only four years worth of stuff – the rest is still at Blogger. And what’s four years of memories? Nothing, really. I mean, before I blogged, I just had to remember. It wasn’t too bad, before blogging, was it? That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.
There’s a chance I can still recover it all, but in the meantime, I’m just moving on. It’s summertime on the farm, after all, and there is only so much time available for messing around with lost blogs.
I hope the four of you who have been wondering where I went see this post. I’m not entirely sure the feed will still work, but I miss you. Catch up later? Okay, then.
PS: I don’t really blame my sister. 🙂
