I'm in a bit of a shock as I write this but it looks as if my entire blog might just have disappeared off the face of the cloud!

I enlisted my son via telephone one morning to help me from his college apartment when I couldn't receive any emails.

He ended up deleting, I think permanently, all my photos.

I'm so dizzy right now I'm not sure of anything except the real possibility that 6 years of my life that was so wonderfully documented on my blog may be gone forever...

I always thought I should convert all my blog posts into a book. It was always on the back of my mind.

I'm devastated...

and numb.

I'm still holding out for a miracle though... please send me your positive thoughts.

Thank you

I know it will be alright, you will get everything back i place!

I worry about this all the time/ think about going to WordPress from Blogger.

Prayers with you and I hope you received the check!!

I am not sure it is of great comfort, but up to 2011 seems to be there -

My hubby just bought a backup last month so that I do not ever lose anything. It cost under $50 i believe. But if you frequently backed up your blog on Blogger it should be accessible. Contact them to find out.

I too want to make a book of my blog. Do you know how?

I hope your blog is restored to you. It is a nightmare to lose so much creative work. Hug xxo Kerrie

By now you must know it's there. I just went to your 2009 archives and there they are.

They say that nothing is ever lost. I would call the Geek squad and maybe they can find them for you. Makes me think I need to do a back-up on a hard drive. All of my early days Pinterest picts are gone off of my blog, due to Pinterest did not have a perma link at the time. What you gonna do, but just carry on. Sending you a hug!

Love to call you and give you some advice. Are you posting through Blogger or through LiveWriter? There are several places the images and posts can be hiding. I'm going to send you an email now....xxooA

I can see you posts in the archives on the sidebar when I open specific dates. Strange that they don't show up here on the home page. Good luck! I'm sorry you are having to deal with this. Stressful!

Oh no...just got a pain in my chest for you!!! Good luck.

I don't think it is possible to lose everything. Call a computer expert and contact blogger. I have found things via cache at times!

Leslie said...

Oh no! These things happen.. Sometimes you can retrieve deleted items. Get help asap! Good luck.

THAT IS TERRIBLE! I am so sorry. BUT, I have to say that I looked at your most recent blog post first after not reading any blogs for a long time and it really came across like you had cancer or some other awful illness. I was so sad for you and your family. I would be devastated if I lost all of my images and you have so many more than I do, but at least you've got your health :)

La Dolfina said...

Amen Scarlett!
I am sorry I scared you!
Thank you you for your concern.
I cannot indulge myself when there are real problems in this world and I most definitely agree that "health is wealth" as my Grandmother always said.
So nice to hear from you!

Sooooo sorry Terri- that makes my stomach hurt. I am so sorry for you and your son as I'm sure he feels horrible about it too. Hope a Geek Squad type person can help you get them back.
