Wow! So many of you had a lot of input about backing up your blogs and websites! Considering the fact that I’m still a blogging newbie, the importance of backing up my blog was just made aware to me a few weeks ago—and if you still have no idea about what this even means—don’t sweat it
From my understanding, we’re all at risk of losing our bloggies. Let me say that again—WE ARE ALL AT RISK OF LOSING OUR BLOGGIES.
That means every post, tag, page, recipe, and comment is in danger of being lost somewhere into the internet abyss and never to be seen again. However, all of this can be prevented if we simply take precautionary measures and back up our sites.
I’m self-hosted through WordPress.org so this is the only kind of backup I know how to do. There are a couple plugins that you can download which will perform the entire back up process for you. The one I use is called “WordPress Database Backup“ and I was able to set it up so that I would receive a weekly email with the updated backup of my site.
Here is where I would probably begin a tutorial about how to specifically back up your blogs and yada yada yada, but considering the fact that I just learned how to do it yesterday, I’m just going to go ahead and refer you to the magnificent Katy’s blog where you can find in depth step-by-step instructions on how to avoid such a catastrophe. (See her post “Backing Up Your Blog”)
In other news, today has been full of a lot of this
Oh and I can’t forget THIS:
Have any of you tried the magical goodness of the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino from Starbucks?
I must admit, I had my hesitations, but once I took a sip it was very clear to me—I needed to create a healthier adaptation of the stuff as soon as possible or else I might find myself in the midst of a frapp overdose.
Needless to say, my prayers were answered.
Healthier Mocha Coconut Frappuccino
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 Tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee (I used Tasters Choice)
- Sweetener of choice (I used Truvia)
- 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 Tablespoon protein powder of choice
1. Combine all ingredients in blender and blend. Add ice until desired consistency is achieved. Top with shredded coconut or chocolate chips.
Hope everyone has a wonderful evening! I’m going on a date with my mom tonight for the last time before I leave. Que sad
A bit to think about: What are your thoughts on backing up?
