Yesterday was a memorable and unfortunate day for me. I have just finished a mini revamp on my blog site and added a new entry. After publishing it and refreshed, this message showed :
Imogenkin.wordpress.com is no longer available!
There is an error report form though, so users can send an appeal or at least an explanation about the violation at least. And I made use of the option. I sent 2 separate reports stating that the link wasn’t meant for advertisement and that it is for reference only. I also pointed that this is a personal blog with no intentions of promoting other third-party sites.
I whined almost the whole afternoon. After getting some sleep, I finally swallowed the truth that I lost my blog. I am open to the possibility of setting up a new one and start over again. And to help me accept it, (yeah it was a big deal hehe) Chino and I went for some drinks despite the gushing rain.
After hours of not checking my WordPress account, I logged in and knew what to see: the same error message that’s saying that my blog has been suspended. And to my surprise, I saw something familiar. All my previous posts are accessible and the error message was gone. Tools and features are back to normal. I was like, “waaaa yes” with my hand over my mouth. My blog was retrieved! I am happy again! 🙂 Good thing, the support team acts fast. And they were able to reconsider. I no longer have the link to send a report to them so I am using this post to thank them. Thank you support team for being quick and reasonable! It was almost 8 hours of grieving over my lost blog but I am very glad to have it back. I now learned my lesson and will be more responsible with my posts and content that I upload. I don’t want this site to go to thin air again. 🙂 So, thank you and looking forward to years of blogging with you. 🙂
And now on to my next post…..
