What would be your first thoughts if you thought your blog was gone?
Happy to eventually get more time to yourself?
Panic? Even a sense of shock?
The feeling that I had on Friday when I thought 9 years of blogging had been taken away from me was unreal. Emotion ran through me so fast and I felt emotional sick.
I mentioned on Friday over at The Weekend Link Up that it was on my mind to change all my blog templates over as I felt I needed to. You can read more about why here: Weekend Link Up.
Blogger template were so easy to do but the hours I spent changing thing around fonts, widgets, writing, colours etc were full on. Friday I thought it was time to tackle my WordPress blog and also my baby! I have had this blog 9 years now and it holds a lot of good memories of the children growing up. This blog is a big part of my life. I never realised how much before Friday though!!
I had spent hours prior to Friday trying to download my blog but it would not download for love or money!! No worries, nothing went wrong with Blogger blogs so nothing would go wrong with this one, I told myself.
I picked out and paid for a new theme, yep another one. 3 blogs and 3 themes hasn’t come cheap!! ( I’ve spent over £100. I don’t have this kind of money spare and if I did I would never wanted to spend it).
Anyway I happily uploaded my brand new shiny theme and hurried over to check it out.
My whole blog had gone.
I was spinning, I felt sick. I am not ashamed to say it, I even cried!!
What does one does in a situation like this? Panicking does not get you anywhere, does it!?
I was actually shaking.
I am a really shy person, believe it or not. I put off phoning anyone for weeks but I knew this was not a time to wait around and I needed to try and get it back, if anyway, as soon as possible.
I hopped onto my Facebook as I have a friend who has been amazing helping all us bloggers out in situations like this and message Zoe who blogs at Mama Geek for help! I was shaking when I type my first message as I was in shock at losing my blog. Zoe was amazing and talked me into everything I had to do to get it back. I do not know what I would have done without her help.
How would you feel if you lost your blog in the flick of a template?
