I am sitting here, heartbroken. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to do.
My site went down for two days. I know, in the online world, technical glitches happen. The company that hosts this site, WestNIC as well as almost all my husbands sites, which are his business – his income – reputation, peace of mind…. The hosting company had a server error. I was patient. I waited. This morning, my site went back up. Today is October 19th. The most recent post online was from September 3rd. It was like turning the hands back in time to open the page and see it like a snapshot of history. Still, many of the links were not working and I told myself they were still in the process of restoring the site.
I was wrong.
Elie informed me that he had spoken to a company representative (who was rude to him!!!!) and he was told their server and backups were damaged and the most recent activity that they can restore only until September 3rd. September THIRD! That is a lifetime ago!!! ENTIRE 30 day challenges are gone! GONE!!!!! My new header and design and buttons are GONE! I’ve sent out publicity kits to TV shows and they are going to come look at the site and it is going to appear outdated! I am so upset!!! The company claims there is nothing they can do and they don’t take blame. Elie has ENTIRE SITES he has paid to create and build in the last 8 weeks that have VANISHED. He was running a contest on his main site The TCM Directory (which is thankfully hosted by a different company) and the prize was a fully pre-built website. THE WEBSITE PRIZE NO LONGER EXISTS!!!!! He has clients who rely on him to manage and host their websites- boom. All their info- GONE.
I’m just devastated. Hours and hours- TWO MONTHS of all our work- GONE in a blink.
I just don’t even know what to think.
I mostly want to apologize to the AMAZING women (and AJ 😉 ) who contributed to this site in that time. September was an amazing month on this site and it breaks my heart that it is gone. I… I just….. I just don’t know what else to say.
Thanks for sticking by me. This is TRULY a MAJOR MUCHNESS KILLER.
If you are a contributor to the site, please feel free to post something Muchy. I need a pick me up. … If you signed up to take the challenge, and are in middle of it, you may not be able to log in, as any account created after Sep 3 has vaporized. Please drop me a note and I will re-sign you up.
I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry. :’-(
