(The blog on the blog – blogception?)

This time my extended hiatus was due to a very unfortunate series of events in which my dreadful web host (I won’t name and shame, but I’m quite certain you might know which one it is already) decided to delete my ENTIRE site without so much as an e-mail’s notice. Needless to say I was beyond frustrated when I learned that there was nothing I could do to get it back.

After a good week of feeling upset, helpless and sorry for myself, I harassed my previous host through countless web chats to get access to my domain and purchased new hosting. I then thanked my lucky stars that Wellsphere had an online log of every post I ever made and decided it was time to get to work and redesign, rebuild and re-populate my blog from scratch.

The problem with this of course (besides being incredibly time consuming) is that all old comments have disappeared, along with some of the static pages of the blog. I also had to dig up all my old photos and re-upload to match them up with posts, so not all of them are exactly the way they used be. But despite it all, I have returned and I couldn’t be happier to be typing up a blog post once again! I have some fantastic new recipes and reviews up my sleeve and I can’t wait to share them.

I should mention that not all posts and recipes have been restored just yet – it’s proven to be a much slower process than I originally anticipated so please bear with me while I get all of the old content up and running. I’m also uploading all my recipes separately to recipage for quick retrieval, but again the collection on there is far from complete – so If there’s a recipe you’re looking for that you can’t find just leave me a comment below or drop me a message on Facebook and I’ll be sure to add it to the top of the recipe queue or even just e-mail it to you.

Before I depart – I’d like to wish all my wonderful readers who observe and celebrate it, a very warm Ramadan Kareem. And also – for every person who sent me an e-mail, Facebook message or tweet – thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your support means the world to me, and I can’t thank you enough for your patience. Stay tuned for new recipes and updates!

    Yay! So glad you are back. But boo! I noticed your blog was gone, and when I tried to go back to some bookmarked recipes they weren’t there, so I deleted all the bookmarks. So I don’t even remember which ones I was looking for! I will have a poke around though, and see if I can find what I wanted. From a reader’s perspective, I am very appreciative that you’ve gone to all this effort to restore the content!

    Sorry to hear about your website woes! Losing all of your site is the worst. I can only imagine how defeating that must have felt. But I’m glad you’re back, and it looks great now!

    So glad to see you back! That’s awful about your web host, I can only imagine restoring years worth of posts and such.

    Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store :-)
