It’s a new day at Mitchster.com. I woke up this morning to find an email from Wayne (Thanks Wayne!) informing me that my site had been down since 11:50pm central yesterday. I called godaddy.com a couple times and they said that they knew about it and were working on it. Apparently all the WordPress blogs on GoDaddy were down.
At 11:45 am today, it came back up — almost 12 hours later. I haven’t backed up the database since I created mitchster.com and that was all I was thinking about today. As soon as the site came back up, I downloaded it. So the lesson for all you bloggers… Find the database export function on your blog and get the file. It’s just nice to have a current copy.
This picture was taken a few years ago at Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis. It seemed appropriate to how I am feeling right now. I was going to post about infrared photography today, but I’m going to wait until tomorrow. Now I am going to take a nap, or at least breath normally for a while.
Thanks again to all of you that emailed me about it and commiserated. It’s very nice when you are in crisis to know others are thinking of you.
P.S. Mom called, no post, something must be wrong. 🙂 Now I know why she hasn’t called lately to see if I’m still kicking. Years ago she gave me a little sign that I put in my kitchen that says, “Mom worries.” Now I know my blog as another purpose I didn’t know about.
