My blog has been down for a few days, and my author website (jenniegoutet.com) for even longer. I switched hosts and was again reminded of my lack of comprehension of all things technical. I hadn’t realised that switching hosts meant copying the huge files that represent 7 years of blogging from the old host to the new. I thought it just magically sorted itself out somehow the minute I clicked “pay here”.
It helped me to realise how much I love this dear little blog. I felt empty and panicky when I thought I might not be able fix it, and the 7 years of posts would be lost forever.
I want to share with you some gorgeous photos of Monet’s garden in Giverny, but that will be for next time. This post is just to reassure that you I haven’t closed shop in case any of you tried to find me and came up with nothing. It’s also to test a new “subscribe by e-mail” form I’m working on that’s long overdue. (For those in the know, I’m leaving feedburner and will move to mailchimp). I want to bring over my old e-mail list and give new people the option to subscribe, but first I want to make sure the thing actually works.
So this is my test post. 🙂
And here is my test picture.
And here’s all my affection for those of you who bear with me. Technical density dunce-ity?) and all.
