So, I thought I had all my old posts from that website someone pointed out, but, nope. So I still lost like a year’s worth of posts. Godaddy still won’t give me a copy of the site backup even if I pay them, so fuck Godaddy. Don’t host with them. The service quality sucks. If I have to be honest I do like the themes better, but that’s about it. I don’t spend enough time devoted to this site for it to really matter, anyway. The nice thing here is I have complete access to my website back end. If I need to inject code I can. Godaddy doesn’t allow that. One for reason to say fuck Godaddy,.
I’ve looked EVERYWHERE and I can’t find a single site backup from before. Other than the one from 2017. I don’t know which is more likely, that I was just lazy and stupid about it, or misplaced it. I suppose the xml file could exist under another name, but I question what I would’ve renamed it. I checked everywhere, and I even looked at my emails. i sometimes send files to myself as a way to back them up.
Godaddy is still basically saying “Fuck You” as far as a site backup goes. They claim they only keep a backup for 30 days. I’m calling bullshit on that. I bet if it were a law enforcement issue they’d somehow “find” the backup. They’re doing it out of spite for not wanting to pay $15 a month for a non-monetized wordpress site. I should’ve stuck with these guys here or maybe even 000. It just seems really petty and spiteful.
So, in case you’re wondering: NO, I do not recommend GoDadday for hosting.

The problem is I let my Godaddy account expire and they’re holding my site backup hostage until I rejoin. Apparently I can join for one month and they’ll give me a copy of my most recent backup. It’s shitty, but it’s my fault for forgetting to download regular copies of the backup. I think their format might be somewhat proprietary, too. I haven’t figured that out yet. Most likely I’ll have to pay their ransom to get my latest copy back to upload here.
One and One, or however you want to spell it, has a HUGE learning curve. It’s not user-friendly at all. It’s going to take me a few days of exploring to figure it out and get writing again. I have to figure out all the plugins and see if I can access the back end so I can run scripts. Noting major, just a few things so I can monetize my youtube channel. You can look me up on there under adamcharles1972 or tip the driver, I think. Or here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy8b6Rwnr715G4R53n2S10w/videos?view_as=subscriber
