Technical Difficulties…

If you follow me on twitter you already know about this but it looks like this may take some time to fix so I wanted to make sure everyone knows what’s going on. About two weeks ago, I noticed my admin panel was very slow, so slow that nothing would load. I didn’t think much of it and just gave up on posting for the night. After that, I didn’t get a chance to try to post again because I ran into a busy period at work and then took a mini-vacation. This past Monday, I tried to post again only to find that the same problem I had before was still occurring. Nothing loads. I can’t get to the “new post” page. When I can get to it, it won’t load photos (even for this post, I wanted to post a funny “technical difficulties” meme photo and couldn’t). When I’m lucky enough to get a photo loaded, everything gets deleted when I try to save the draft or publish. VampyVarnish suggested that my site may have fallen victim to an attack on WordPress. I spent about an hour on the phone with my hosting provider and on different forums to find a solution, all to no avail. I de-activated some plug-ins which made this post possible using QuickPress but it’s impossible to do any real blogging right now. I’m not sure what’s going on yet but it’s clear that I’m going to have to roll up my sleeves and do a lot of work on this. (I might even have to pull out the big guns – my little brother, programming extraordinaire!) I have a rough work week coming up, so I might not be able to sit down and fiddle with WordPress until this weekend.

I’m so bummed and so, so sorry about this. I have so many new collections to show you. So many pretty photos. T_T

I’m planning to re-install WordPress, etc., but if you have any other suggestions – please let me know!! And thank you for sticking with me!

    That is a bummer. I own several online businesses and find that when something simple like a blog needs tweaking I just get on elance and hire a freelancer for next to nothing to get it fixed (usually within 24 hours) I imagine the issue you are having would run you about $20, which is probably easier than spending 10 hours online on blogs trying to figure it out. Just an idea. There are a few sites out there that you can hire a freelancer from. Another I’ve used is

    I took your advice and tried to hire a comp-tech that has an office close-by. I explained the problem and he told me there probably wasn’t much he could do. Everything started working again right before I dropped 65 bucks on him so I lucked out!! Thank you for the recommendation though – I do want to make some changes to the site so I’m definitely going to check out
