Yes, there I was, all tan and rested and happy and ready to post about my exciting adventures, when I clicked on my Blog and found… nothing.
It had disappeared from the face of the Cyberuniverse.
To say that I was distressed would be a massive understatement. I sobbed. I screamed. I threw things. And then I ate some chocolate and realized that it was just a stupid web page and I could start all over again. Would it be painful? Yes. Would it be worse than having my second child without any anesthesia? Maybe. But at least this time around, I hopefully won’t end up with hemorrhoids.
In case you are wondering what happened, well so am I. It is a mystery that I cannot solve because try as I might, I cannot reach anyone at Google to help me unravel it. Apparently they offer nothing in the way of technical support other than a Help Forum, which is populated by some savvy Blogger users, but no one who can actually restore my old account.
This is why my new Blog is hosted by WordPress. Before I signed up, I made sure to check that they offer something in the way of actual support.
I am still learning my way around my new Blog, so I apologize for the scantily clad look of it. I’m not sure yet how to hook up all my links and what not (“what not” is shorthand for all those widgets and buttons I need to figure out how to add), so if you want to read my column, head over to www.lostinsuburbia.net which is my main website, and you can connect to my latest column from there.
If I had been following your blog, please let me know so I can follow it again. If you had been following me, please come back. And tell all your friends to follow me, too. I will gladly accept sympathy follows! 🙂
