This website was hacked. I know many of you noticed because I got so many, “Where is it?” messages.
What I didn’t expect was how devastated and out of sorts I would be. I didn’t realize how attached I was to the village I have cultivated here.
I missed writing. I missed your commentary. And it was only down 38 hours but it felt like a month.
It was then I realized this is my baby.
As you guys know, I post something every day. The attack felt so personal, I literally felt like I was losing my child all over again.
My newly merged team helped out and ultimately I went and got protection that would help me avoid being targeted again. So it got fixed.
I had to steer myself away from self pity mode multiple times. My reaction was so unexpected. My therapy outlet gone.
I know I can write on a word doc. I actually started this post in one. But I have so many ideas stored on the site and I could not get to them.
Fortunately, this loss was fixable. The loss of my child is not. But this site represents love of what I lost and for that reason, it hurt to lose that lifeline for even just a few hours.

Glad u back!
I did notice that when I clicked on the link to read it, it wanted me to fill in my password?! I can imagine the feeling – my iphone was destroyed and I lost all the music that I had gotten off my computer, from my CD’s, long ago. I had a new laptop and had not backed it up yet. I lost all the christmas music that whitten loved. I was absolutely devastated. It will cost me hundreds to download it all now. It’s funny what messes with you afterwards.
The web host shuts it down when there is suspicious activity. I couldn’t get in either which was so frustrating
It’s an amazing insight for you, isn’t it? Both in terms of your personal connection to the blog (your digital child) and our connection to you. You are very much needed. Glad you’re back up and running, stronger and more protected. We missed you those 38 hours… ❤️
Well said, Amy. AM – we are glad you are back!
