On Monday, I woke up and found out my blog was down. And I was all like…
I immediately contacted my host provider to find out the issue.
Except there was no way to get them on the phone. They don't even have a customer service line.
So I was forced to confront them on twitter.
They said it was another DDoS attack. The same kind of attack that had kept their entire platform down for FIVE DAYS earlier this month.
Interesting. Didn't they say they had solved that problem the last time?
I was angry.
Like, REALLY ANGRY.
They said they were working on it and it would be back up and running soon. But I had heard that one before.
I asked if they were planning on reimbursing us for the business lost.
I told them there were people counting on me to make them feel better about their own lack of parenting skills!
I worried I had lost my readers FOREVER!
Finally, I realized there was nothing I could do but wait.
Well. There was one thing I could do.
Two things, actually.
Then I got myself into a very Zen place.
Maybe life was better without having to write a blog every day?
Maybe a little more sleep and a little less #babysuiting wouldn't be a bad thing?
Would anybody even care?
Maybe I could actually relax and enjoy myself for once!
But then I got scared.
What would I do without Mommy Shorts?
I love this blog almost more than anything.
I called my web developer to ask for an ETA on the blog platform switch.
They said about two more months.
That sounds doable, right?
Thanks to everyone who submitted photos of their kids on my facebook page while my blog was down. It helped make the outage a lot more fun.
XO, Mommy Shorts
