As you may have noticed, I am in the middle redoing my blog, facebook pages and Twitter account. It has been a labor intensive process and I have been designing and working on what I want all of it to look like.
For several days my computer has been having issues. Yesterday afternoon I turned on my computer and it opened to the computer setup page, claiming I had no operating system on my computer. I sat there trying to process the fact that I had just lost all of my photos, over ten days of music and all of my writing… my book, my blog post, all of my published work…
Of course I’ve backed up most of my work but in my panicked state I couldn’t for the life of me, I couldn’t remember how long it had been since I had done so. I had no access to another computer and I spent about 16 hours just trying to get the computer to load Windows so I could put my libraries on my external hard drive.
Around two this morning, after running start up diagnostics about five times, my computer booted. I was able to pull all of my writing off of the computer and began rerunning virus, rootkit and malware scans on my computer followed by more diagnostics. I finally got it to load and run normally this evening. I flashed my hard drive and backed up my system.
I think that was almost as bad as my last breakup. I was terrified that I lost everything. I have felt sick for two days over it. I felt like my house had burned down and I had been able to save nothing. My work means so much to me. I think that I may have a new reoccurring nightmare.
So I am back to working on my new site and peripheral promotional work. A lot of html, design work and branding. I am happy to get back to it so over the next few days my blog may change a few times but I will still be posting and hope to debut my site along with my permanent logo, designed by the amazing Lizzie Cracked (Never Broken) this Friday. I hope you’ll all stop by and check everything out.
