I got up Sunday morning and while my coffee was brewing, I opened my laptop and clicked on my site. Nothing. I had my picture and title up there. I had all that nonsense I have down the left side of my site and nothing else. A completely blank page. I clicked on my archives. Nothing. There was one blank page after another. I knew some were reading what I'd posted the night before because I had comments in my email. Recalling what a hassle Brenda had because her site wouldn't publish, I worried. A lot. I could kick myself in the butt because I don't back this stuff up. I back up my laptop, but not my blog. It's not written in a word document then copied to blogger. I don't trust Google not to lose my work so I should come up with a different place to store the product of all my wasted time. Don't you agree? After all, I don't want to have wasted it for nothing.
What do you do to protect your ramblings?
Interestingly, the way to fix the particular problem I had is to write a post and press the save button. For some mysterious reason, everything publishes after this repair job. It took one hour to figure that one out. I should have had my coffee first.
And yes, I screech like that when I see a mouse or big ass spiders in the house.
