I Think Someone Was Messing with My Blog
I usually see my blog from the private side, behind the scenes where I add photos, write, edit, and preview posts, look at comments, etc. When I preview a post I focus on the post's appearance and whether the writing is coherent and cohesive but I don't usually look at the rest of the blog.
On my sidebar I've had several lists of blogs and links -- one of quilters'/creatives' blogs; one with book recommendation blogs; another with online quilt museums/collections; and one of blogs I find interesting but that don't fit in any other category.
But wait! I just remembered: I can go to the Internet Archive's WayBackMachine and see if it saved my blog in recent days. Yes! There it is. It's a great help with recreating my lists but because I'm using the save from the end of May, it may not have all the additions I've made since then. I'll use that to recreate but I may miss some of your blogs.
If you know that your blog was on my sidebar I wish you'd please let me know so I can be sure to add it back.
And this experience reminds me that it's a really good idea to back up my blog -- not just the template but the whole blog and all the posts. I would hate to lose all my posts in all three of my blogs! If you want to back up your blog and don't know how to do it, you can read instructions here. (I'm not tech savvy so I have to follow the instructions word for word.) Back it up to your hard drive, an external hard drive, or a thumb/flash drive.
Again, if your blog was on my sidebar please let me know. Thanks.
Has anyone been messing with your blog?
