Happy New Year friends! Since starting my lip biz a few months ago, it’s been rough to find time to devote to this online space of mine. I’ve missed it terribly. The writing, the documenting, the community. I’m determined to jump back in, because I’m taking my own advice and spending time in places that fill up my cup.
First things first – about those Hackers
If we are friends on Facebook you might have seen my SOS loud and proud last week how my blog got hacked. Yes, the blog you are currently reading. It was so stressful and I’m even getting anxious just thinking about how I thought I had lost all my content. You guys. Content = our stories and our pictures all lost forever. It was almost too much to bear, I was literally sick to my stomach about it all.
To make a looooong story short. I had SiteLock clear off all of the malicious content that the hackers had infected my site with. Unfortunately, along with the malicious content SiteLock also wiped clean the functionality of my site. Insert my SOS. I literally had no clue as to how to move forward you guys.
I reached out to Lisette from High Note Designs who had originally transferred my blog from the Blogger platform to the WordPress platform years ago. You guys! Girlfriend knows her stuff! She had my site back up in running in a matter of hours AND not only that but she also installed a newer theme that I’m just head over heels in love with. Isn’t it lovely?! I can’t say enough wonderful things about her and her services she offers. You guys, if you need any design help at all, I highly recommend Lisette.
