3rd Degree Blogicide

by admin on February 19, 2008

It was bound to happen.

I was screwing around with WordPress plugins last night when one thing led to another and before I knew what happened, I’d inadvertently committed blogicide.

And it was so young…

My apologies to all my treasured guests, thoughtful commenters and registered users. Please know I didn’t whack you, I just whacked off.

I’ll do my best to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

Start the clock.

Blogicide! OMG! I’ve always suspected this could happen, but never heard of a case before. You have my deepest condolences.

If this story had to happen, I wish I’d heard it one month ago today when I was participating on a panel discussion about blogging at a writing conference. I made the point that even blogs need to be backed up, but had no example of the reason why.

I feel a blog coming on — later today!

I whacked the whole thing and had to rebuild it…like Steve Austin it turned out to be better, but it was a real pain in the ass.

It’s also made me a little gunshy about investing a lot of eneregy in the blog, but I’ve never been one to allow logic to interfere with my need for self destruction, so, stay tuned.
