Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
You may have noticed the site went silent for a number of days, and let me tell you… I didn’t mean for that to happen. Last week I had my hard drive crash, which ended up with me losing all of my work/images that I have taken over the past four years. I took some time to write about it on my personal blog, but to summarize that blog post… I’ve been working really hard at trying to retrieve as much information as I could that was scattered on multiple clouds as well as USBs/alternate hard drives just so I had enough material to start teaching today. Sadly, a lot of the images I took of our little ones are gone.
I am really grateful that I run Pets Overload because I still have all of those images saved in the cloud, but it’s sad to know that there were a lot of outtakes that I found cute or was going to introduce in the weekly caption contests that may never see the light of day.
For now, I have decided not to go down the route of paying for data recovery (because that’s very, very expensive), but I will be keeping that hard drive somewhere safe so that I can recover the information when my budget/income is more substantial.
Hopefully, that will be very soon, but until then I have committed to paying for an online cloud at Sync.com to make sure this never happens again. If you don’t already have a cloud account and are worried about losing your data I recommend getting a free account today. If you click the link I’ve provided you will also get an extra GB of free storage (that I will also receive for referring you!) In the past I’ve been a huge Dropbox user, and while I love their platform their prices are much too high if you’re hoping to store as many pictures as I have. Their referral program also only gives you 500mb/referral and limits you to 15GB while it seems like Sync doesn’t limit you. (I may be wrong though.)
All in all, though, I hope I never have to take that much time off from running this blog again. I really missed posting daily and will try my hardest to catch up on all the days I’ve missed.
Thank you again, everyone, for all of your support for this blog, I appreciate it so much. Here’s to never losing data again! Especially not of the little cuties that live in our household <3
