Well, ok, so that is just a little bit of an exaggeration! But when I saw that HomeschoolJournal.net had been hacked, I immediately realized that I had not backed up any of my posts and that I did not even know how to back them up! I also realized that I was sure that Andrea and Ron probably did this on a regular basis, but still it is scary when something that you have spent a lot of time on and invested a lot of energy in (and enjoy a lot) gets threatened. I have a lot of posts here that I often refer to on my homeschool email lists and some posts that I hope to turn into articles for my state homeschool newsletter. The thought of having to recreate those was not a pleasant one.
What is really interesting is how much I missed my blog and this little HomeschoolJournal.net community! And it really was not even “gone” very long. But the feeling of relief when the boys and I came back from dinner and I saw that ThrowingMarshmallows was intact and had not lost a thing was wonderful.
So thank you Andrea and Ron! You guys are awesome (but you know that, right?)
