When I started to blog I tried to do everything right. I received some help to set up everything and get WordPress to work and when I sat down in front of the computer I was overwhelmed with possibilities.
I had the same feeling everytime I started a new journal when I was young. You have an empty open book and you can write anything… everything.
Few months later I still feel the same excitement when I open WordPress… until the day I opened it and I couldn’t log in.
Only then did I realise a big mistake I made when I started… choosing a free webhosting provider.
My account was suspended without any warning or notice. The reason they gave was something that neither my IT-husband nor I could understand and the only way to back-up or retrieve my website was to upgrade to their premium plan.
My website was down for four very long days as we upgraded to their premium plan.
I take this experience as part of the learning curve as I still need to learn a lot about this new adventure I started.
