Thank heavens, we're back

Google has very kindly restored our blog, gmail and google+ accounts. I'm hoping they won't disable us again, but to ensure I don't lose any of my precious posts (especially the ones about sweet Inigo) I'm going to back up my blog, then move it to Wordpress.

Thank to everyone that's given your support, and I would suggest to all of you that you back up  your blogs, just in case the worst happens to you as well.

I keep telling Rumblemum that the REAL moral of the story is that Ham BROKE the blog... she still seems to like him tho *pout*

Edit to add: the wonderful and bootiful ladies at Zoolantry have posted an excellent step-by-step way of backing up your blog. I can't stress enough how important this is, having learned the hard way.

Thanks again to everyone for being so supportive, I have RUMBLEcuddles for you all. Hamlet is not allowed to cuddle for a full week for breaking our blog *glaring at Ham*

Thank Bast! We are backing up our blog now too. That was skeery. (we knew it wasn't the Ham's fault.)

We'll be waiting for you here at WordPress.

We're glad you're back! This happened to Cheri at Cats of the Wildcat Woods last year, we think. Bad Google!

Our mom does back up our blog, just not as often as ought to be done! She will be doing it more often than once or twice a month now, though.

Simba said...

SO glad you are back! After Zoolatry posted about your problem, we did back our blog up!!! Because the last time we did so was over a year ago!! Once a month from now on.

Can you explain to us how you got in touch with Google to get it restored? We wouldn't know how to.

Whskr & Dash Kitten said...

How do we back up our bog Rumbles :-((

I am so glad your blog is back - I remember doing a little pendant with Inigo's picture on. He was the most wonderful boy.

BeadedTail said...

Yay! We're so glad you are back! JB Bean told us a way to make a book out of blogs so we're going to be doing that too. We'll have to figure out how to back it up too. We're just glad you didn't lose any posts of handsome Inigo!

Mariodacat said...

Thank Cat you were able to get it restored. Any idea what happened. After your experience, M backed my blog and her's up today - just in case. Maybe after the new year she can figure out how to move ours over too. It would be horrible to lose Inigo's posts - just horrible. Well, it would be horrible to lose any of you handsome boys, but especially Inigo.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Hmmmmm, our Mommy also does not know how to back up a blog either.....we are happy you are back=^Y^=

Random Felines said...

Mom backed us up too. She thought about moving to wordpress, but just really can't stand their dashboard....and therefore hasn't committed to the move....their reader to follow just is terrible...mom got a little scared though when she read you guys got deleted!

meowmeowmans said...

Thank COD you are back! We were heartbroken and scared when we heard what had happened.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh thank goodness you are back and it is all straightened out! That is very scary. We tried to visit your blog on Sunday through your profile and it said it was private so we were wondering...PS: Dear Rumbles, we thinks the Ham can do many things, but we don't thinks he can break the blog!

Cathy Keisha said...

Stoopid blogger won't let me back up my blog!!!! Sniff! Did Hammy break the export button on my blog?

Mr Puddy said...

Luxington said...

Oh no! Very scary! Sorry that happened to you! We're gonna rush home and back up our blog tonight!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I heard about this this morning and am so happy you are back!

I must try and back up mine too, that would be awful.

About WordPress, things aren't always as good as they seem. I have Dakota's blog on WordPress and it has it's challenges as well. Blogger is much easier to use. I use "Free" WordPress so maybe that is why I am not overly thrilled with it.

It isn't awful but if you are moving because you perceive it to be infinitely better than Blogger, it isn't.

Sagira said...

How scary. I need to back up my blog.

FURKIDSMOM said...

That had to be so upsetting! We're glad everything is back. We backed ours up tonight too!!

Lin said...

EEEK! I'm so sorry that happened to you. :( Thanks for the reminder to back mine up. Gosh, just the thought of losing all those old posts makes me shudder!

The Crew said...

Hey, great to see you back!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Glad it was just a blogger problem. Good luck with the move over to WordPress.

Sparkle said...

I missed most of your ordeal - I only caught the last part of it on Twitter - but I am SO glad things worked out!

Cat said...

We are so glad you're back!!!! Thanks for warning all of us, we backed up our blog today.

Lilycatqueen said...

OOhhhh he's quite naughty that Hamlet isn't he, breaking the blog..

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh Thank Cod! That was just horrifying!!

I don't think it was Ham's fault--he's a sweet, good Boy, he is! (Heh, heh)

So glad you're back! We did a back-up yesterday also!

Cory said...

It's amazing what Hamlet is getting away with at your place!

Purring that your blog is back up and running my furriends.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank goodness you got your blog back quickly we think Cheri (of Cats at the Wild Cats Wood) had to wait 2 or 3 weeks before she got hers back. We found out then how to do a blog back up and have done it each week religiously since then.
Did your Mom say some naughty words - we know ours would have!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...
