Granted I was annoyed but I was warned that it might happen briefly, if it happened at all, but I'd be given notice. I was literally writing a post when it dropped. I'm surprised you didn't hear me scream.
Anyway. I borrowed a cell phone (yes I'm the only person on the planet who does not have one) and fired off several emails and made a few phone calls after 24 hours had passed and it wasn't reinstated. 3.5 weeks later I finally have it back. Not going to bore you with the details, but I gained a whole new understanding of the desire to go "postal".
Meanwhile, I had advertisers drop me, authors upset because their promised posts didn't happen, lost SEO ranking due to no updates, my Giveaway board is woefully outdated, and there were dozens of lost opportunities because I couldn't access my email much less answer it. Oh yeah and the beloved spam traffic I had gotten rid of came back (which is why there is a captcha back on comments, sorry... hopefully it is only temporary.)
Please bear with me as I play catch up. (Have you ever tried to go through 3.5 weeks of emails? OMG!)
The good news is that I got lots of reading done. The bad news is that I have to format all those posts before they can go live. Assuming we don't get a major hurricane anytime soon (those have been known to knock me offline for up to two weeks /shudders) I have some good stuff coming up for the old blogs.
Hope you stick around to join in the fun cause I'm baaaccckkk!!
