Poop Happens!

 Last Friday morning as I was writing my FF entry, my husband kissed me goodbye happily and went off to work for the day. Shortly after he left, I completed my FF and clicked onto the "publish post" icon, when suddenly my screen says "This blog is no longer in existence."
"WHAT?" I was completely caught off guard.
 I spent quite some time attempting to contact Google and find out how this could have possibly happened. Later that afternoon (at lunch) around 11:30 or so
Mr. Takamine (my husband) comes home and says,
 "I have been fighting all morning with YouTube over my password".
I said,
 "Well you will never believe what happened to me!
My blog just disappeared.
Poof! Gone!
Can you believe Google, the biggest powerhouse in the world, would allow such a crazy thing?".
 He says,
"Your Blog???... Google???... Gone???... Oops!!!".

Yup! He totally deleted our Google account.
Evidently google is trying to link up everything to one location.
So a few weeks ago, while listening to music on YouTube, (because apparently that's what he does at work), he clicked on something that would automatically link him from Google to YouTube. Now, I had noticed for the last two weeks that I had to change my password nearly every time I logged into my blog but I just thought it was a glitch in the system or something. I don't know, I just simply wanted to type! 
So anyway, the two of us were changing our password every time we logged into either
 YouTube or Blogger. (Pretty much on a daily basis.)
Between his music and my need to ramble we were not getting anywhere!

Lesson: Communication is Key.
If you share a google account connection with a mate,
 for heavens sakee communicate everything!

So, needless to say I was unable to get my blog re-instated and so
I started a new one, out of pure desperation to write!
I was unable to keep my original URL but I am leaving everything pretty much the same.
Back to zero followers... not that I had many to begin with,
 but I had developed some great relationships and I wanted to keep those open. 
A special thanks to Mrs. 4444's at Half Past Kissin' Time for being there for me
 when the only way I could post anywhere was by signing "Anonymous".
Thanks :)

  2. Wow, I am so thankful my husband isn't that computer savvy to bother logging in and changing passwords on stuff. I don't think he even goes on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger--none of that. He sticks to news and sports websites and does not participate in discussion forums unless I am with him. So sorry you lost your blog! I would be really bummed out at that!

    Stopping by from Friday Fragments.

  3. Well, My hubby is huge into music, particularly acoustic guitar (hence the nickname Mr. Takamine)... So he is always on YouTube, as well as the sports stuff!

    I've forgiven him :)

  4. Oh no, that is just painful. I kinda hate that google puts everything together because I blog anonymously, but I have a youtube account under my real name so I have to keep signing in seperately.
