sorry for the delay

I wanted a quick apology for not updating this blog as I usually do.   On Wednesday night I was scanning photos from some magazines that I had recently purchased off ebay.   I went to save some files on the flash drive that I use to hold everything that has even appeared on this blog and I realized that the flash drive was infected with a virus.   While trying to delete all of that junk, my entire home computer became infected and I had to do some work to get everything cleaned up.   I am not a computer person and it took me a long time.   Once everything was cleaned up, I tried my flash drive again and started to cry because it looked like everything was gone!  It didn't seem possible so I found some directions as to how to make invisible files appear and presto!  My blog files were back.   So that is what I have been doing lately.  

I thought a flash drive was the best way to save everything from the blog.    Does anyone know a better way?  What does a cloud do?  Is that worth me looking into?

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your computer troubles Sara. You must have been devastated when you thought you'd lost all of your precious files. I'm glad you seem to have fixed the problem. Sometimes pc virues can be so much worse. For the record flash drives are no good. I have heard that they often are infected with virues. Your best bet would be cloud storage, which is space that you pay for on the internet. It's not expensive at all, and your files are on a secure sight online. So you don't have to worry about virues or using up hard drive space. But I'm so glad everything is up and running. I love this blog. I wouldn't want anything to happen to it!
