So you may ask, what’s taking so long to rebuild this blog? Well, with a little help from my son, I got my blog up and running again. And then I was so happy with the new features of WordPress, that I just went on and on changing this and that…until I got spammed with the ‘Silence is Golden’ blog configuration spam. Short story is that my blog went blank and the shortest path without a reliable backup, was to rebuild :-)…and that is still in progress. Many old posts and new ones are yet to be ported over….again
What’s the take home message here. Friends should not let friends run old blog sites. It’s much better to upgrade now and then.
