Just a quick post to say, it’s been FIVE long years. What’s good??!
I didn’t realize I’ve been away from writing for that long but the important thing is, I am now back and determined to stay. Maybe.
There’s so much going on now that I’d like to tell you about. From the dark web to CryptoKitties to interesting marketing-related tidbits… I can’t wait to share them here!
Wayback Machine: My savior and your key to the internet’s past
I actually lost my entire site due to sheer stupidity. Long story short, I let my account on my web host expire. I was sent multiple email notices but because I also switched email addresses, I wasn’t seeing any of them.
By the time I realized it, a year had already passed. I emailed my web hosting provider, desperately asking for help. I didn’t have any sort of backup implemented. I know, I know. They sympathized but said the only thing that is to be said: nope, you’re SOL.
Then a friend asked me if I had checked Wayback Machine. Luckily, my site has been saved a few times. So now my 5-year-old posts are back!
And yes, you can also check Wayback Machine to see your old blogs/websites if you’ve had any.
Unfortunately, it won’t work for closed sites where you’ll need to log in like Multiply or Friendster — which is a relief TBH! Who wants to see their old Friendster profiles and their testimonials??
