Can we just take a moment to help me grieve!😢
So this year I’d planned to blog more, put content out there and hopefully grow my blog. I basically had everything planned out. Spent time on research and buying extra stuff to make sure I have a good headstart but then! My post drafts got deleted you guys!!!
I know it might seem like I’m overreacting but just before I could back them up elsewhere, I lost them. Not to mention I was under a lot of pressure to put them out here because I haven’t been constant in the last few months. Since I prefer blogging from my phone, I had issues with my app. It wouldn’t upload media, notifications were coming in too late and I just couldn’t have it anymore. I decided to upgrade it and that was my downfall.
I tried updating via Google Play Store and nothing happened basically. Sooo, I decided to download an apk then install. Here’s the part that I forgot to think about. I had to back up my local drafts first before installing the new apk if I had no internet connection. Because of that, 5 of my posts are gone! I’d worked really hard creating the content, taking pictures, researching and all to perfect those posts only to lose them.

Well of cause I can, but I can’t reproduce the exact same content I’d put out😣 It was hard work and sweat right there, my creativity levels were on steroids then. I spent the whole night up trying to accept this fact and reproduce some of the posts again but hey, hopefully the new ones will be better.
Anyway, I won’t be deterred. I saw some things I’d missed, mistakes made and learnt a couple of lessons from those deleted post. At least I still have the pictures and will make sure I bring the best out of them.
