A few weeks ago my website, after many hackers and random unauthorized users dismantled my blog, I was faced with several choices. I am needing to switch hosting, secure my website and still grow a following. As it stood I felt when I had things finally up and running things were running properly. After several calls and time, I was able to get my site back up and running. Three things I learned during this process.
Patience: I need more patience. As codes and data were being transferred over I got impatient and started making changes to my website to make it more visually appealing. When I did that, files and data were not transferred over properly and I ended up having to make several calls to fix it. Let’s just say after this process I will make and save more time to let things load.
Growing followers: Though I wasn’t growing my following on my website. I still had my other social media to grow followings. So while the site was down I put energy in to still providing content to those different social media.
Thank goodness for Backups: when migrating a website over to a different host or even building one from scratch I had to remember to set up automatic back up just in case. This saved me from having to start from scratch.
As it is I am grateful to have gone through this interesting ordeal. I get can get back to blogging and sharing more of my adventures! Thank you all for your support! You rock!
