A few months ago I made a terrible mistake and while doing some maintenance of some other online projects I accidentally deleted the database for this blog. Worse yet, because I do not update the blog often I found out after my hosting company had purged their back ups. Unfortunately they only keep backups for 30 days and it was 50 days until I noticed. And, before you ask, no, I did not have a back up of the site.
So I am beginning again. Not the first time in my life I have begun again and I’m sure not the last time. It’s OK because the blog had evolved from my intentions when I first started it nearly two years ago. I have evolved since then. So this time the blog will truly be continuing and not restarting.
My only regret is that there were probably five or six articles that I wrote that I wish I still had. I can remember them well enough to reflect upon them at a different time. I will also keep checking the Way Back Machine of Internet Archive in the hopes that some of them may turn up.
I am feeling a bit more like writing. More prolific. I will be sharing soon.
