On the wonders of technology…

It’s been a whole week since I posted anything.  Not for lack of inspiration, or being away from my computer, or being lucky enough to be on vacation.

Last week, on Monday, I nuked my blog.

It was pretty scary, let me tell you.  Mushroom clouds and everything!

OK, no mushroom cloud.  But I think my heart stopped for several seconds.  Remarkably, I was pretty calm, after the initial shock had worn off.  That’s thanks in no small part to Enlightened Warrior Training Camp and The Peaceful Woman.

It had been suggested to me that I could run my whole website through WordPress, and not have to struggle with making my website look the same as my blog.  And it’s a pretty great idea!  Only, I didn’t have quite enough information, and I jumped ahead of myself, and poof!  No access to the blog.

Thankfully, all of the information was still there.  Essentially I changed the lock, and then left the key inside.  So everything was safe and sound, even from me!

I have to say a huge thanks to Mike Browne, who helped calm me down, helped write the support ticket for me, and also wrote me the best step-by-step directions for how to move the blog without the bomb going off.  I don’t know how I would have managed with out him! (Seriously, if you need help with your page, talk to him!) And thanks as well to the support people at lunarpages, who unlocked the site, and handed me back the key.

It was all fixed almost a week ago, however, I waited until today to do the move.  I wanted to make sure I had time to troubleshoot any problems, just in case I didn’t follow the directions quite thoroughly.  Everything went smoothly, though, so…

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!
