If you are a blogger, can you imagine the feelings you would have if you logged into your blog account and found your account and your blog completely gone…deleted?
This recently happened to one of our fellow bloggers, Willow @ My Irish Cottage.
Willow told me she has no idea how or why her blog disappeared and despite her best efforts, she has not been able to retrieve any of the content she had previously posted.
Does anyone else besides me think it is scary to know that could conceivably happen to any of us bloggers who use Blogger? Many of us use our blogs as an on-line journal of the events in our lives.
Even working with the people at the Google Help forums proved fruitless for Willow. After at least a week of attempting to find and restore her old blog, she came to the realization that if she was to continue blogging, she would have to set up a new Blogger account, select a new URL address, a new blog name, and start over from scratch.
Bless her heart. She didn’t throw in the towel and give up like I would have been so tempted to do. She’s starting over.
I told Willow I would be glad to help her re-establish her readership by posting her new blog info here, since I’m sure we share some of the same readers. If you previously read Willow’s blog and found it deleted when you went to visit, now you know why.
If you have never visited Willow before, stop by and say hello. In addition to posting about gardening, crafting and decorating, she has embarked on a weight loss program and she will be courageously sharing her journey as she attempts to lose 200 pounds. I know from personal experience, the process of losing weight is HARD and I’m sure Willow would appreciate some encouraging words.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 44 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 35.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
