The Case of the Disappearing Blog

This morning when I typed in my web address to write a post, it came up "blog not found". 

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?

The panic started to seep in.

It was then I realized that it had been awhile since I backed up my blog.

I looked and double checked the web address.  It was right. It was.

My heart started racing.  I swear I broke out in a sweat. 

WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!?!?!

I triple checked the web address.

Oh.

It read: http://therpacticalmomguide.blogspot.com.  Two measly letters interchanged.  My eyes DID deceive me as did my typing fingers.  Darn them.


Now I need to recover from my scare and go backup my blog.  I think I may need a frappucino to.

I hate when that happens!!! Especially when it absolutely looks right the first few times.

But the relief is nice isn't it?

I would have had a heart attack!

HAHAHA!! Yep, I've done that before!

AACK! I don't know how to back up my blog! And now I'm skeered!

How you did not die on the spot as soon as you got the "blog not found" message is beyond me. I would've died. lol Glad it was just a simple error though. I know how upset you'd be if something did happen to your blog. :(

That is the scariest part about blogging and having sites. That happened to me with my working website and it was actually gone. It took hours for my host to recover it.

Glad to hear it was only missing letters case.

I couldn't believe I did that. I swear my hands were shaking. It was a good lesson in backing up more frequently though. I remember a few months ago reading about people who had actually lost content on their blogs for whatever reason and all I could think was that now it has happened to me...NOOOOO!

OMG! My heart would have stopped. Thank goodness it was all sorted out...but come to think of it, I don't really ever back up my blog!
