Accidentally deleting my follower base because I’m dumb

If you’ve ever wondered about the name of this blog, you’ll better understand it after this post. Everyone kinda expects that I’m good with digital stuff and computers because I belong to a generation some might call ‘digital natives’. But to tell the truth, I have no magical knowledge that others don’t have. I’m just clicking around and figuring stuff out as I go. I just feel certain, that I won’t break anything. Well, so far at least.


A week ago, I accidentally deleted parts of my follower database. I didn’t even realize until the next day. That was when I started trying to figure out who I think was following me before and sent out invitations. Some of you accepted them but I’m still short most of my previous followers. That sucks. However, if you’re still here or here again, you’re awesome and I love you! And yes, I’m an idiot. A loving idiot anyways.

The irony of this whole situation is that I was actually trying to back up my blog in case something happened. Now I’m scared of attempting another back-up and ending up accidentally deleting my whole blog. So, if you’re ever trying to find my blog and stumble upon emptiness, I was probably trying to back it up some more.


If you wanna help me reduce the pain of losing my followers, I’d love it if you shared my blog with friends, family or colleagues. You could use my last post about ‘inspirational’ quotes if you want. Thanks.*

    I think I had a higher quality of life before finding out that deleting a follower base was even possible… One more unlikely occurrence to be unnecessarily paranoid about! Anyway, sorry to hear you lost your base but glad that you seem to be taking it in stride(:

    I’m following you now! I’m pretty tech savvy, but I am always so nervous when working on a blog post; I accidentally hit publish when I had only written the first sentence! I’m sorry you deleted your followers! They’ll find you again!

      Haha yeah, I know the feeling! I’m always nervous about sending the wrong texts/emails to the wrong people. I had a couple of incidents in the past and I don’t seem to learn from my mistakes. Super happy you decided to follow me :)))

    That’s gotta stink when that happens. I really need to do backup on my blog to be perfectly honest. I haven’t done too much with that yet. Of course, now you have scared me about doing it, but what’s life like without a little fear… or something like that anyway?
