…for one hour i disapperead

not really me but this blog. 

shadow of a chair by imene photography

i have one question for you: do you back up your data? your pictures, your blog?

for one hour today i thought i was going to cry. i was updating my blog and i erased it. everything all the posts, images, layout…all gone

it is not life threatening but i came close to crying. then i remembered those pesky emails notifying that my blog was backed-up. usually i erase them..gasp. this time i got lucky, it took me 45 minutes trying to figure out how to restore the whole blog. it involved php, sql and other barbaric geekisms but here i am up and running. i will post what i wrote tomorrow as for today i need to calm my nerves with some camomille tea or something stronger.

so next time you are tempted to skip the back up. please DON’T.

  2. Oh man, it has been a while since I actually did a backup of my data. Risky right? Thanks a lot for the reminder, I will be doing it soon enough just to be safe from any unforeseen circumstances.
