I know that most of you must know Lisa from Suburban Retreat. She is the first person I met when I started blogging. Those of you who know her, know that she takes the time to comment on every one of yours posts and the comments are as genuine as can be.
Well, she just contacted me and no longer has access to her blog. It is still there, but she is unable to sign in. Apparently from what I understand she was having problems with her lap top all week. Although she knew she'd lose all of her photos, she was resetting the laptop back to the factory settings.
It said she had updated her Google Account with a different email address and password. She called her email/internet provider who started digging and found another email address and password in her account. She was told it was probably some kind of Trojan virus that had hacked in.
Many of you who have known me for a while know that something similar happened to me and I lost my entire blog. I started from scratch right around Christmas. Although my entire blog was literally gone. I am in tears for Lisa right now because as menial as it might sound, it is devastating to lose all of the hard work you have put into your blog. I know that 99% of you will agree with me regarding this. She is most likely going to have to start over and is mostly devastated about losing her followers who have been so faithful to her as she has been to you. Once she gets up and running, I want to help her regain that following because she is one blogger who deserves our support. She is honestly one of the most genuine people I know and I am sure you will all agree.
Please leave me a comment if you were a follower of Lisa's or would like to follow her once she is up and running. I want to help her get back on track as soon as possible. Once I have her new blog, I will let everyone know. Take a look at her original blog to see what a stylish and sweet woman she is.
That being said, PLEASE back your blogs up now. You can save all of your posts on your computer. I believe you will lose your pictures and followers if this happens, but you will still have your literature. Go to your settings.
At the top where it says "blog tools", you will see "export blog". Click on this to save your blog to your computer. I do this once a week on different computers just in case one of my lap tops dies on me. I truly learned the hard way. BE VERY CAREFUL not to hit the "delete blog" button. It is right next to the "export blog" button. I know, STUPID!
I will be in touch with more regarding what is happening with her. She is so sweet that she is probably feeling the need to contact all of you to apologize for not commenting on your posts lately. Send her a sweet comment here and I will be sure to tell her to check back so she can see which of her followers are aware of her situation. Thanks for taking the time to read this....
One more thing I just thought of....If anyone out there isn't as computer challenged as I am and know how to help Lisa, please feel free to express your suggestions.
