A New Home

I didn't choose this new blog because I wanted to move. I simply made a big mistake and deleted my "Pinelands Patches, Beadscapes and Spirit Dolls" blog accidentally. A warning -- do NOT, under any circumstances, think you don't need the google account you used to set up your blog and delete that account! The result will be that you will be finding a new home too. I even had to choose a new name because when a blog is deleted, that name isn't available for use by others. No matter that I'm not an "other" -- it's not available. I plan to rebuild some of my former posts, and I hope my Followers will somehow find me again. Please pass the word and stay tuned. Thanks!

So sorry to hear that. Interestingly, I didn't get any notification that your blog was gone.

When I got my Droid they asked if I had a gmail account. I said yes and they used it to set up my phone.

I'm sorry this happened to you....and I'm sure your information will help others to avoid this same problem.

Barbara...I'm glad I emailed you this morning to find out what happened to your blog. I did post your email on my blog as a warning to others. Glad others are finding your blog again.

So sorry. I know what it is like to lose precious photos. I didn't know this would happen, so I am thankful for the info, but sad at how it came about. Hang in there....Marlene

Micki said...

Welcome Barbara...I posted about it on my blog, so hopefully all will find you again. I am so sorry that it all happened. Hope my post helps you!

I read about this on Micki's blog (Irish Muses). Even though I had not visited your blog previously, I am now a follower. I recently had a blogger help me set up a test blog, and I'm learning all the "tips and tricks", so this will serve as a warning to me. I'm sure you must be devestated, and wish you all the best of luck. My heart goes out to you. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

I am so sorry! I'm still hoping that somehow you can at least recover some of the content.

Just heard word from Micki about your blog, and I'm so sorry. I can't say I can relate entirely, but just this week I made the mistake of deleting MANY, MANY months worth of COMMENTS from Blogland friends and neighbors! I was SO upset with myself, but I just have to brush myself off, and move ahead, right?! It's the words and memories I still hold in my heart that matters!.. Anyways, did I hear you make DOLLS?! I LOVE dolls!.. Make me your newest follower! ~tina

I'm sorry this happened to you. I hope you get things squared away soon!

drakesneststudios said...

Thanks for the warning! So sorry that this happened to you; however, I know you will soon be up and running as good as new (no pun intended). Looking forward to seeing all that you have to offer, follow you around and, perhaps, even learn something new.

All the Best,
Terri at the Drake's Nest in Ossineke, MI

Roberta said...

Yikes! I am so sorry. But thanks for the heads up! Hopefully you have saved a blog life somewhere.

Lisa Criswell / Indigo's Beads said...

i'm sorry this happened to you! i am trying to "follow" your blog, but it's not letting me. i am clicking on follow like i always do and it takes me to a google sign in page. i sign in and it takes me directly back to the page to select google again. i even tried changing my password. *sigh* i will try again later.

Welcome back! I am sorry about this, too but I am happy to find you again! ♥♥♥

Chris H said...

How awful for you.
I thought there was a way to un-delete your blog if you did that!

Julie-ann F Bowden said...

So lovely to hear from you and so pleased you've got right back and started again. I know you'll get this blog the way you like it!
Thank you for letting us know this information.
Loads of lovexx

Believe it or not, I know EXACTLY how you feel.

Not long ago, I forgot my gmail password. I don't remember how the scenerio all went, but I jumped through all their hoops trying to prove I was me and still couldn't get access. I was in a total panic! At the time, I was more upset about not seeing everyone elses blog than I was to see mine. How would you EVER find all the blogs you follow without your list.

I dug around and found the correct answers to their questions but it took a few days.

Now for the funny part. I went through all that because I was trying to long into blogger using my email address as @google.com instead of .gmail.com.

Brother!!

Rebag said...

I am so gald I found you!! Or rather you found us and let us know!! I simply hit blog this on my blog so it could be passed along that way too! :) I love your work and seeing what you have created!!


Blessings to you from a friend in Minneosta

It is clearly painful to lose so much and have little recourse--it's as if your blog literally burned down and all was lost. Well, be positive, look forward to a new start, and remember that many good things will come of this---wait and see.
Let the past go and start anew. I heard about you on the Inkspillersattic.blogspot and since I like her blog I trusted that it would be worth the trip over to yours--glad I visited. Love your spirit dolls, very moving!!!!

Hunter said...

Time traveling to the past. I lost a blog, too. I trusted Blogger's back up your blog and it didn't work.

Onward and upward, yes? Your blog is wonderful even if it's born of loss.

Aloha,

Hunter
