Viagra Picture

Viagra Changes Everything

If you have visited my blog before, you may have noticed a few changes. There has been a big design change but also, you may notice that I have a much lighter load of content.

Well, the story started a few days ago, when I tried visiting my blog but received a warning stating that there was Malware on my site. Apparently, someone had hacked my site and posted tons of links to Viagra. No big deal I thought, I would just delete all mentions, export my blog, re-install wordpress and then import the content again. Can’t take me too long right? WRONG!!

Save Everything, Multiple Times

While it is true that I thought I had it fixed pretty quickly, I did encounter a soul crushing error. When i tried importing my blog content, the file was blank. In fact, the only backup file I could find that had any content was from June 2012. I had lost several months of blog content. t first I was fuming, how could I be such an idiot? What could have happened? What am I going to do?

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

I decided that I need to remain positive. Looking on the bright side, the majority of my site visits has been for content I wrote a long time ago, so to me the bright side is that I pretty much just lost crap content. No big deal. Yes, I did spend a lot of time posting items, I realize now that I was doing it just to say that I have written and posted something. Moving forward, I don’t want that to be my motivation.

Only Post The Good Stuff

I am making a promise now…..I will not post crap. It’s wasting my time if I do and more importantly, it wastes your time.

What Have I learned?

  1. Make sure my site doesn’t get infected in the first place
  2. Always make sure I have redundancy
  3. Don’t write Crap
  4. Promote the heck out of the good stuff
