Firstly let me just say that I enjoy writing this blog...mostly it is (as I had originally intended it to be) a sort of online journal on living simply in the city and simplifying my life. Things don't seem to be getting much simpler--indeed some days, many days, it is the opposite--but I still enjoy doing it. And judging by the amount of daily hits, I believe others enjoy it as well. I like to post every day or at least every-other-day...it has become a sort of routine for me. So you can imagine my surprise 3 days ago when I went to log on and was told that I had either an incorrect password or user name. Thinking I had miss-typed I tried it again, then a few more times, but to no avail. I had not changed anything and had used the same password and user name since my very first post. After a few rounds with the blogger help page I was told that this account was affiliated with an email I had used when I first toyed with blogging and started one but never got it off the ground...in short, that blog and email have not existed in almost 4 years. Huh? To make the story shorter, I was eventually able to reestablish a (new) password and user name and access this blog. So the question I am wondering is was I hacked or was this some sort of Blogger.com error...an ancient blog floating in cyberspace gone awry? Whatever the reason, after I was able to access this blog, as a precautionary measure I've started a mirror blog at Wordpress. This is still my main blog from which I will post, but once a week or so I will import it there (click here to see it). It has all of the posts but not the links (eventually it will). Periodically I do take a few days off--and very rarely even a week--but if you notice that I havn't been posting you may want to check in the Wordpress blog...the way I see it, if I was locked out before and for no reason on my part it may happen again. And if it does I'll have a back up. As always, thanks for visiting and commenting...for without readers there is, in my opinion, no reason to blog. Peace.
