If you came here looking for The Travel Journo blog, you’re in the right place. But in early 2021, I received the news that my website had been wiped from the internet after my hosting plan failed to renew. As you can imagine, I was completely devastated.
The thing is, I’m a writer first and foremost, and the ‘techy’ / ‘bloggy’ stuff is something that I just learned in little bits along the way. So I learned the hard way, that backing up your website in various places is VITAL (and paying your hosting fees on time is even more vital). But you know, with two children under three and a career pause while I prioritised starting a family, life has kind of taken over. And as a result, I have had to mourn the loss of a blog that took me years to create and documented the most amazing travel experiences of my 10 year journalism career.
The good news is, all is not lost. This difficult journey has taught me a lot about website archives (Thank you Wayback Machine) and I have managed to salvage some of the website content I thought was long gone.
So while I go about slowly rebuilding The Travel Journo and trying to piece together the posts that I was most proud of, please come back to check my progress now and again and show your support! And if you have ever been through the same experience and lost your own important blog or website, I’d be interested in hearing from you and how you built it back up again. Thanks, and hopefully I will have some new content for you again soon.
