Some of you may be aware that WordPress inexplicably suspended this blog last night.
I logged in to approve a comment and was met with an angry red statement that said my blog had violated the terms of service and I was not wanted! (Really, it said something to the effect of “we don’t want your kind” or something!)
I was more than a bit shocked, worried, stressed, you name it.
A little while later, Annalee brought me this paper she’d made up for me…
And at bedtime, she brought me this…
Bless her heart, she made me smile.
(Prepare for deep, corny thoughts)
A Magical Childhood isn’t this blog or the main web site or anything that can be suspended, deleted or destroyed.
It’s all of you who join me in looking for ways to make some memories with our kiddos (even on the days we want to throw shoes at the wall).
It’s those of you who told me you wrote WordPress angry letters protesting what they’d done.
It’s little girls who dream up ways to make the day magical in magic marker.
Thanks for being on this journey with me, wherever it’s hosted.
And thank you, Annalee, for making my day a little more magical.
Oh, and this morning I woke up to this form letter in my inbox:
A mistake was made in the system which we have corrected. The blog is back just as you left it.
We are really sorry for that happening and the inconvenience it caused you.
So there you have it. All’s back to normal.
I’ve been writing A Magical Childhood since Anna was a baby in my arms.
Back then I had two little girls. Now I have two boys and two girls, one of whom is nearly a teenager.
I’ve yapped at you all from Themestream, the Magical Childhood web site, newsletters, Live Journal and WordPress. I may move this blog to the Magical Childhood site just to keep it safe from this sort of thing ever happening again. Of course, then I need to commit some time to updating the poor thing!
It’s not that easy to get rid of me.
