30-Day Challenge 17: I Forgive You, Blogger


QOTD: Yes, I must ask this worldwide debatable question...e-books or print books?
Day 17: Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why. I kind of like my life, but if I had to switch lives for a day I'd probably swipe with J.K. Rowling. I'd get to be pals with Harry Freaking Potter & Co. (or at least the corresponding actors) and see what it's like to be a world-renowned writer. Then, I could check off 2/134982019321 life goals of mine.


As most of you know, Blogger was under maintenance for 20.5 hours. You can view The Blogger Team's message here at the Blogger Buzz. The first day Blogger was down, I kind of shrugged and let it go. Then starting yesterday afternoon I began to bite my nails excessively--a habit that I was supposed to have broken back in middle school--and checked Blogger's Homepage EVERY hour. Okay, I admit it...I was starting to freak out. I mean, my very first "Inanimation" Blogfest is just a day away. I was afraid that this maintenance issue would continue on through tomorrow, and then what would become of my blogfest?

Then I started overthinking (like I always do) and worried about what would happen if Blogger had to shut down. What would happen to all of my posts? MY BELOVED BLOG! .....But then, a few hours ago my Dashboard reappeared and all was well again. YAY!

I checked everything and so far TRA Blog is still intact. Turns out, though, that not all blogs came out of this maintenance delay unscathed and not everyone was as lucky as me. For some blogs, many posts and even comments have been deleted or altered in some way, but TBT is supposed to be working to restore those so if your blog has been mutilated in some way--have no fear!!! Hopefully it will all be back to normal in the imminent future.
