Lesson Learned


Patience.  I thought I had some.  Apparently I did not have enough.

About a week ago I started having trouble blogging like I normally do.  Being a “newbie” at this, I couldn’t figure out what was wrong.  I was doing everything exactly the same and it didn’t make sense.  Frustration set in and I was becoming pretty upset.  Mike, my tech helper, was doing his best to help me, but couldn’t find a definite answer as to why my blog wouldn’t work either.

Finally, yesterday we thought, we sort of figured out what was wrong.  I needed more storage in one of my online picture albums.  Me, apparently thinking I was fixing the problem, made a HUGE mistake.  Instead of deleting some pictures that I had backed up on my computer, I ended up deleting my blog pictures. 

Everything was fine until I looked at my blog.  Holy moly – disaster.  I obviously didn’t realize that it would delete them OFF OF MY ENTIRE BLOG AS WELL.  I was so upset and it was all my doing. 

I hit the button, I was impatient, I messed up what I had been working so hard on for the past two months.  I was so proud of my blog and it was all gone.

In reality, this is not a big deal, I know.  But to me at that moment it was a GIGANTIC deal.  After many tears, and a day later, I have found the problem with my blog, fixed it, and have come to the realization that the pictures are all gone and I have to in a sense start over.

My goal is to keep going. Salvage what I can of the previous posts, and move on.  Grocery Lane doesn’t look awesome at the moment, however slowly but surely it will be back in full swing soon. 

Lesson learned.
