Good Monday morning friends. I am so excited to be back here on the blog with y’all again! I took some what of an ‘unannounced break’ while we wrapped up summer, started our homeschool year and worked on many projects. I have to say it was a good break and it was much needed for me to reset and focus on our family and our school year!! But I am officially back and I have missed y’all terribly! I have so much to share, we’ve been so busy here at our little place and I’m excited for y’all to see. Plus I have some fun DIY’s to share! So that’s all good news; I’m back and have lots to share!! Now for the not so good news…
I have had a few of my readers reach out to me and tell me that they’ve read a blog post but the photos linked to the post are not showing up. I could not figure out what this issue might be. I assumed maybe the website wasn’t working right with uploading photos onto cell phones. After checking into the issue on my end and doing a little digging, I figured out the problem…it was me. So here’s what happened in a nut shell, when I first began blogging I chose the ‘free’ plan through word press and bought my domain (misdiy.com). All was well, then one day after blogging for roughly a year I couldn’t upload anymore pictures. My ‘media library’ was full. So not knowing better I cleaned it out. Thinking that this was just for uploading and that my photos were safe in the blog posts…no friends, I was wrong! Every photo that I removed from my ‘media library’ was completely removed from my blog. Which then left a years worth of blog posts without photos. Can I just say that for about half of the day I was literally sick to my stomach, an entire year GONE. But what do you do? Once I had blogged to share with y’all the majority of the photos were deleted from my camera or computer. Gone..all of it! But that’s ok friends, its a lesson learned and I will move on from it! I am no expert at anything, and I know that there are many more mistakes to come everyday in my life but I will choose to learn from them and get better!!
So here’s the ‘plan’. All of the bog posts missing photos have been deleted. I have tons of new DIY’s and home décor goodies to share with you all so I will continue blogging and working to share as much as possible with all of you. I could use your help though!! If there was a blog post that has now been deleted that you would like to see on the blog again PLEASE let me know! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it in the comments here below! I will work to do updated blog posts on some of the DIY’s we’ve done and I’ll be doing home tours again. I cant tell y’all just how much I appreciate each of you following along and taking time to read my blog!! This week I’m hoping to have our master makeover on the blog along with some goodies!! Stay tuned!! ❤
