Recently it was a very unlucky period of my life, in a week or so I fell down the stair and now I’m bounded in bed with a bandaged foot, someone deleted my Google account and my blog with it, more than 200 blog posts and a three years old blog went lost in only a few minutes and with them all my sample blogs for my design business. It may sounds nothing to a lot of you, but when blogging is part of your life whether is a business or a passion, whether you just started it or you passed a few years of your life building it step by step, seeing it disappear in front of your own eyes really makes you feel sad.
I don’t know what is going on with me recently, but I still can find some positive aspects in all of this unluckiness I’m experiencing, I feel like I’m a lot more a positive person recently, and I’m so passionated to my blog and my little business that I can’t let someone lets me down. I immediately started rebuilding all my design’s sample blogs, saved the most recent posts I uploaded on my blog and reuploaded all of them one by one by hands, redesigned my blog and fixed everything else. It took me two days of work but I’m finally back blogging and I couldn’t be more happy about that! I can’t have my entire blog back as it was before, but I can still blog and speak to all of you, so it can’t be so bad, right? Anyway I thought I could share a little list of positive aspects of experiencing this unlucky period, hoping to bring some positivity in your life as well.
– Losing your blog even only for a pair of days makes you see how passionate you really are about it and I discovered I live my little blog like if it was an extension of myself, I just can’t imagine it to do not exist anymore and it never crossed my mind to use what happened as an excuse to stop blogging.
– At least I have no more embarrassing old posts written three years ago.
– Last year I was one of those bloggers who uses way too many labels with the result that I recently didn’t even know where to start to decimate them, but being that I have to start from a brand new blog, I now can manage them more wisely.
– While rebuilding my design’s sample blogs I had the opportunity to fix some coding errors I couldn’t see before.
– Being bounded in bed for ten days is not that bad if I still have a blog to write on and paper, brushes and watercolors to paint something nice and be creative.
– It’s super lovely when you realize people really love you and would do anything to make your worst days better.
– I’m reading a lot of beautiful written blog posts and discovering a lot of new blog I love.
– I reached 800 blog followers this week, and this is amazing, thank you!
– I have so many supportive followers and I can’t thank enough anyone who commented on my last post What happended to Miel Café? and who tweeted me about my blog’s unlucky experience.
– Right now I’m writing this post in my garden with birds tweetering in the background and a super nice warm spring weather, so I can’t really feel unlucky at all.
Being aware of who I am, I would say only a few months ago I would had cried seeing my blog being deleted by someone so mean to take me away something I love so much, I would say I may had let him let me down and never restarted my blog from scratch like I’m doing right now, but now I feel so positive and passionated about this little online space of mine that I can’t let everything simply disappear, so Miel Café is still here and I’m still blogging as usual no matter what it happened!
