As you of might notice, this blog actually died and revived in the short span of 4 days. On March 19th, I started a blog called ‘Young Executive’ hosted on Netfirms.com. After continuosly changing templates and modifying them for 2 days, I finally settled with my template modification and start posting. Alas, apparently 2 days ago Netfirms sent me an email to confirm my hosting transaction within 2 days. It is too late … my hosting was canceled. Although the the templates are intact, all my posts are gone. Here i am back to square 0 …

These are the mistakes that i made:

  1. Did not carefully read netfirms email
  2. Did not backup my database

To backup WordPress’ database you might want to use WP-DB-Backup. But if you have a blog with many posts and comment you should use the official WordPress backup guide.

As for me, I’ll wallow through the night and promise myself not to repeat the same silly mistake again.

  1. In case you wonder, the old blog was young-exec.com.

  2. So why the change? Because we won’t be young forever like Alphaville?

  3. It’s proven that putting the word ‘Young’ into your blog name will become a Jinx and killed your blog afterwards 😛

  4. I hope this blog will die old with happiness 🙂

  5. Hi Fleur =)

    Amien for that …
