You guys…I can’t even. This is the year that every problem you could have with your blog has happened to me. I even deleted this post by accident!
Basically I had all these problems with malware on domain.com and decided it was time to switch hosts. I paid someone to transfer my website to Bluehost. For some reason, several months later I learned that my domain name was expiring and I had to switch the domain name over to Bluehost. I still don’t understand exactly what happened but I proceeded to switch my domain name over and in the process overwrote my entire blog erasing all posts from March 3rd onwards.
I’m so upset. I can’t believe that all those posts are gone. If, for some reason, you are a superfan and have a copy of all my posts, please contact me.
But, it isn’t the end of the world and I will move on and continue to post. And I’m going to make sure I backup. I have BackupBuddy but for some reason I always get an error. Nothing can be easy, am I right?
The sad part is that I have backup buddy plugin but I kept getting errors so I never had my database backed up. I just did it and it worked though so I think jetpack might have been causing me issues. TMI. Sorry!
this is crazy!! I can’t believe you have had so much trouble with your blog. With all the blood sweat and tears you put into it I know it is unbelievably frustrating. I don’t have a full proof system for backing up BUT seeing your grammies comment made me remember that I subscribed to myself via email when I started blogging 4 years ago so if I absolutely had to I could go through and repost every post email by email. I need to do that for my friends too!
Shoot, I hate to tell you this, but I was just trying to leave a comment on your Friday post and am unable to… Hope that you get all of the blog madness sorted out soon my friend! Feel free to text or email me to vent about your blogging frustrations.. I can totally relate!
Oh, I’m so so sorry! That is terrible! I’ve had a few issues with my blog over the years and it’s always so stressful. I’m so sorry you lost so many of your posts, especially since you hired someone to help you too!
