I joined Google+. I didn't read or research anything about it and was always viewing it from my phone. I decided to figure out how to use it. The first thing I did was delete every photo album it created for me. I didn't know all those albums were private and they contained every photo that had ever been on my blog. Oh, close to 800.
Here's the message I received when deleting the albums.
Turns out that deleting those private albums deleted every photo from my blog. No warning. No message telling me that this will also delete the photos from past blog posts. No way of retrieving those photos.
I'm sad. But I'm definitely not going to spend time finding pictures and putting them back on each post. I would much rather spend time sewing! I enjoy blogging but I enjoy sewing so much more.
I have all the original photos saved on my computer and an external hard drive so I'm happy about that!
So now I'm trying to figure out what to do. I'm looking at this as a fresh start. When I started this blog, it was all about food and cooking. Then it transitioned into sewing. I kept the Modern Foodie URL but quickly thought of a name that encompassed more. Modern Handmade. I'm not in love with that name and I'm not sure it is really me. I guess I'm starting from scratch. I think. Maybe. To be honest, I'm not sure. But I do know that until I figure it out, I'll be sewing!
There are definitely worse things that could happen in life so I'm trying not to dwell on this and just move forward!
