I Am The World's Biggest Moron

Somehow, I'm not sure how, my blog got deleted. All the entries, everything. I'm in the process of fixing things, and have maybe half of the old entries I can put back up over time. I have permanently lost all of your great comments, which is so upsetting, because I kept meaning to print them out and never got to it. All is not lost, but it's going to take some time to re-build over here. Deep breath. Computers, they are not my friend.

I need to figure this out. Wish me luck.

This sucks. But it could be worse, I know. So to attempt to cheer myself up, I am going over to watch this. It's hilarious (thanks, Ducks Mahal).

You lost your blog??? Aaahhhh (how exactly does one write that horrified gasping sound?). That would explain why all sorts of old posts are popping up in my google reader. You must be so upset. Is there any way to recover more of it?

Even if you can't, with the great writing you do I'm sure you'll have loads of new comments to keep you busy reading ((hug)).

I can only imagine, but now I am wondering ... is there a way to back up blogs? (I admit, I am so computer ignorant)

I'm sorry this happened to you, all the wonderful writing and like you said, comments.

If you know how it happened, maybe you can post that so it doesn't happen to anyone else.

Sending good thoughts =)

Oh, NO!

That's a nightmare I didn't even know I could have!

Shite.

I'm sorry.

Missy said...

I have always been afraid of this happening - I am so sorry! I have so much documented on my blog, especially stuff about my kids, so I can't imagine...

Thanks, you guys. I am trying to keep it in perspective. I really am - it could be worse, I have a lot of the entries stored on e-mail - it's just that I never realized how attached I am to this blog. It was like losing my arm in a moment. You all ROCK for your kind words; seriously. That, plus my coffee, and I'm going to get through the day.

Wow, that's awful. Now I'm nervous about it. My adoption journey is on mine and I don't want to lose it.

Loved the video, BTW.

Oh, The Joys said...

Wow, that is bad news. I am so sorry.

Welcome to Ducks Mahal said...

I’m the world’s biggest moron - first.

I did this a couple of weeks ago. I wiped out my Blog and with it a lot of hours of work. See my link on what happened and what to do from now on. http://ducksmahal.blogspot.com/2007/06/im-worlds-biggest-moron-first.html

Cathy said...

Oh no!

That's awful. Good luck in the reconstruction. And let us know how you do it ... just in case.

Molly said...

Omg...I would DIE if I lost my blog. I'm so sorry!! I'll be sure to leave you lots of comments to make up for your loss =)

Lizarita said...

Ugh. That just sucks. Hope you get it all back!

Wow. This sucks! My favorite all time Jen post was the one of you running in Alabama (?) and the crazy woman burning her kid with cigarettes or something. Man, you gotta re-post that one. I have re-read it 5-6 times when I've needed a laugh.......

Erika, Plain Jane Mom said...

WHAT?? That's a nightmare! I hope you can re-create it!!

Jen Magnuson said...

I think I still have that one, Rony...looking through e-mails...and again, thanks ;) I heart the blogosphere.

Absolutely Bananas said...

That is totally my WORST nightmare. Well, not my worst, but up there. AWFUL! good luck trying to fix...

Sophie's Mom said...

That's terrible! I know in the edit section there's a button that says 'delete blog', I would hate to think it would be that easy to hit it by mistake, and POOF GONE!

It can only get better from here... ;)

Anna said...

Oh, SO sorry. Comments here to replace what you lost!

Tabba said...

oh, that happened to me. and it was like someone ripped my guts out. (can you say I take this too seriously?) But it's a lot of work. A lot of time.
So sorry!!

Noe said...

Jen,
If you have Google Desktop you might be able to get some stuff back. I've had that happened to me before (when i post and then suddenly my post disapears) and then i find it with this program. Not that I always find everything, but i find something...
I love your blog! I'm :( it's gone...
Get a nice smile of your face and keep writing! :)
Have a wonderful day!
Noelia

Oh, I am so sorry!

I live in fear of this. Where I blog there is an option where I can email the daily postings to myself and I use that after I post.

I opened up a gmail account JUST FOR this purpose.

Well, things can only get better, right?

Right?
