I was the Boogie Man who broke my blog. I killed myself, or at least the professorly persona I emit from this site.
I’m not really sure what I was attempting to do or how I jacked up the site. Yes, I’m pretty sure that’s the term for it, “jacked up.”
I was tinkering with the site’s innards on Bluehost. I should know better. I’m not Dr. KRG. I’m Prof KRG. I shouldn’t be messin’ with people’s insides.
The next thing I knew – Fatal Error.
I wanted to cry. I saw my life flash before my eyes – hours I should have spent doing other things when I procrastinated by updating my blog instead.
Thank goodness for Nate and online tech support at Bluehost. He brought Prof KRG back to life, without losing any functioning or content.
