Twitter – that’s one word for where a lot of my writing energy has gone. It’s such an easy way to get out a few words and there’s no pressure to be perfect.
Then again the pressure to be perfect really comes from myself. But lately I’ve been feeling more of a pressure to write down more of my thoughts and that’s overriding that perfectionism. So here I am again, this time armed with the latest and greatest MarsEdit 3.0.4.
Of course, every good story has some conflict. Tonight I realized that my blog had been hacked. It seems like there were some spam links that were hidden in the page. The only things I did notice was that:
1. Sometimes my theme would get reset. Not a huge deal but annoying.
2. Every once in a while a new WordPress user would register for no reason.
3. MarsEdit couldn’t my recent posts, instead offering up a -32700 error.
So a quick backup, removal of the old site, and installation of WordPress 3.0.1 and this blog is back in business, now spam link-free. It’s kind of like encountering the Blue Screen Of Death and hitting Control-Alt-Delete. A Blog Reboot.
Now I remember why I use Apple products. So is there a more hack-proof blogging engine out there that will preserve old WordPress entries?
