I was reading through blogs yesterday, right after I posted my last post, and I noticed that my gmail AND my blog were deleted. I had a mild heart attack and I felt horrible the rest of the night. I e-mailed Google around 3 or 4 times and they e-mailed me back and reinstated everything. THANKFULLY!
I am so happy. I would’ve been so upset if everything was permanently disabled. Google said it was an accident, so oh well.
The BF made me dinner last night to make me feel better, so I guess it was a win-win.
Happy Halloween everyone!
YIKES! That would give me a major heart attack! Thankfully they got everything back up and running for you…
I would have had a panic attack. Glad it all worked out!
What on earth! That is so crazy. I would be livid if my accounts were deleted!I have that pic on my blog too<3
Oh, that is very scary. I have so much stuff in my personal Gmail accounts, I would surely have a heart attack at the sight of that! I'm glad yours came back ok… that's a serious 'mistake' for them to make!(I love that poster too! I'm putting it as wallpaper now… I need the bit of lift!)
That's pretty scary! Glad everything is back :)Happy Halloween!
OMG I would have freaked! Glad you brake! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I almost had a panic attack myself when I couldn't find you the other night. If you weren't back today I was honestly going to have to put up a missing person post. Glad to see it was just a small error and you are back.

Haha thanks everyone! I definitely freaked out yesterday when it happened.
That is scary I had a similar thing happened to me. I had to start my blog over due to teqnical errors. My advice for new bloggers would be to make sure you know how to do a manual backup and restore. Do not rely on your hosting companies backups. There is 2 great videos on YouTube type into search wp learning lab and backup. 2 videos will appear 1 how to do a manual backup the other how to restore from backup. It’s super important to know how to handle things yourself just in case the unfortunate happens. Also I recommend every blogger to make sure they have a cpanel hosting account.
Good news is, at least Google admitted it was an honest mistake on their behalf and reinstated your Google properties. It’s rare for them to admit they slipped up. Keep up the good work in your “side hustle millionaire” blogging endeavors. 🙂
I’m reading through all of your blog related content… starting with the oldest!
