For those of you that missed my post yesterday, let me catch you up to speed (and then I will forgive you for not reading my blog religiously):
About two months ago someone hacked into my blog and installed a crap-load of viruses. I guess I should take it as a compliment that someone thought my blog was important enough to infect, but I’m still getting over the fact that it was a huge pain in the ass. After being told it would cost an exorbitant amount of money (in relation to the zero dollars that this blog brings in) to keep it running, I decided to throw in the towel. That is, until I told my incredibly intelligent tech-savvy friend who said he could fix it for me. For FREE. Yeah, I was on board with that. I think I owe him a cheeseburger for his efforts.
Since I haven’t been able to get much blogging done lately, I’ve had to occupy myself with other, more important things. You know, things like eating cheeseburgers, getting a tan, and traveling the world. Losing my blog (or so I thought) was secretly forgotten while I was on my trip. I mean, who has time to worry about a measly little blog when they’re chilling on an overwater bungalow in French Polynesia? Or swimming with sharks in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean? Not me. I was especially busy worrying if one of the sharks was going to decide that I looked like shark bait.
While I’ve been pretty busy outside of work, my 8-5 hours are a little slow at the moment. However, I’ve had some serious help from a co-worker on a few very tedious projects. Seriously, without her help I probably wouldn’t have survived the day. So in honor of her, and her Dr. Pepper obsession, I made this little tag, tied it to some candy, and showered her with my appreciation. I’m sure she’d prefer a gift card or something, but isn’t it the thought that counts? (On a side note, I think I’m always using that excuse – it should be my life’s motto).
I wanted to share it with all of you, to say THANK YOU for supporting me through my unfortunate blogging mishap. I’ve had plenty of my blogging friends (and real-life ones too) reach out to me to say they were keeping their fingers crossed that I could get my blog back. Well, thanks to you (and my handy-dandy, technology geek of a friend), Rae of Sparkles is back in action.
