I just learned a hard lesson ….

So yeah, this amazing thing happened where my host attempted to update WordPress automatically for me … in the process, wiping out my previous install.

yeah …. awesome.

 

So I have to go and re-do everything because, being the blogging noob I am, I didn’t have a backup set.

Luckily, I only lost 1 post (because of my compulsive double posting).  So I’m not out content, just design.   So I basically now have to go through and re-create the install, from scratch.  Let me tell you how awesome that is (read: not at all).  I’m hoping I can get everything back up and running like it was before soon, but it might take me a while and I plan on working on it a lot over the holiday.  So please be patient with me while I get this all back up and running and categorized and tagged and all that jazz.

Also – Happy Holidays 🙂

Big Changes Incoming….

I wanted to let you guys know that I have some changes in-bound.  A new name, a new look, a new platform, the whole shebang.  I should be launching within the next few weeks.  I already have the basic layout of the site down, all the posts imported from here.  

I’m still working on the logo for the new site, the content for the pages and making sure everything on the site makes sense and is easy to navigate.  But overall, I’m pretty excited.  
Why the change?  Well, Blogger is a great starting platform, but as I’ve gone on, there’s a lot that I just can’t seem to get blogger to do that I would really like it to.  It does everything well, but I’d much rather be able to tweak it more, do more with widgets, other layouts, etc etc.  So, I’m moving from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress site.  This will give me more control over the site, allow me to offer up my content better, and hopefully result in a better overall experience for you guys, my readers.  
After I get this last little bit complete, I’ll post an official “we’ve moved” announcement, and I’ll post here at the new site for a couple weeks, just with a notice that Rogue-Gamer will be going the way of the dodo bird.  
Tchus!
