I have been writing a blog post everyday for five years, and posted it to probaway.wordpress.com but today that site just gives me a blank page. That implies that all of my nearly 2000 posts have vanished. I was looking forward to hitting a total over the years of 900,000 page views this week, but now I simply don’t know what is happening. The site claimed to have a very robust back-up plan. There was a little blip a couple of months ago and I did do a site backup at that time, but I have no idea how robust that will turn out to be. One other time I did an online backup, but when I viewed the code half of my site turned out to be their code which was difficult to eliminate.
There was some sort of failure at the wordpress site today, and there was some conversation about that on wordpress site status
|At 10PM Pacific time we lost complete connectivity to our datacenter in San Antonio, Texas. This loss of connectivity briefly caused degraded performance in the other WordPress.com data centers. We quickly resolved that issue and San Antonio has been removed from production while network engineers continue to troubleshoot the loss in connectivity. WordPress.com performance has returned to normal for the most part.|
I will wait until tomorrow before resuming my daily blog, but if it isn’t operating then I will be forced to do something else.
