The blog got wiped.
Can you believe it?
Having been working on it for almost two years, after one click… Gone forever.
It was due to an essential WordPress upgrade.
I have only myself to blame.
I used to keep a weekly backup, and I kept up to date with all the updates, but I grew cocky and lazy and thought, many times, “Oh I’ll do that later..”
So I have had to get WordPress reinstalled on the host, which is never too hard really.
Apart from of course the sour taste in my mouth as I realise that all my words are gone.
It really is easy to get a WP blog up and running, even when having to start from scratch again.
Once I realised what I had done, and what in turn needed to be done, I took a deep breath and completely wiped clean my hosting.
This would allow me to start again, from the bottom up.
The easiest way, in my opinion, is to have an FTP client which allows you to literally drag, what you want onto your hosting server from your desktop.
With a fast connection, it takes 10 mins max.
Then its just an arduous task of working out the theme you want, what the defaults are etc, but thats all just onanism to most people.
As you can see, I have reverted to a very simple theme, which I can customise, should I have to.
You’ll agree it’s very clean and very bare… So you’ll agree I should get writing some content real soon.
I have come to realise that when an update is due, one should always keep a backup.
Do it straight away, or you may be too behind the crowd to really keep in front.
I see this as a new beginning and a great way to start afresh.
Thank you for sticking by me when the site was away.
I really do enjoy your company.
