If you’ve been following me on Facebook then most probably you knew what happened to my blog last week. Refresher course: The admins purposely/accidentally deleted my Blogger account (including this blog) without any prior notice. Pero naibalik din naman siya after about 2 hours.
I know some of my good-for-nothing friends thought that my reaction to this was a bit overreacting but they wouldn’t understand a thing ‘cos they’re not bloggers themselves. Nasayangan lang talaga ako. We have great times together, moments I will always cherish and I’d hate to think that there would come a time that we will no longer be together. *sobs*
SEQUENCING OF EVENTS
Sunday, January 22, 2012
6:40 pm. I was blog hopping when suddenly Blogger asked for my password again which was unusual ‘cos I know I was log-in with my Blogger account at that time. But what more unusual was that hindi ni-recognize ng system yung account ko after I entered the password. It’s just a technical problem, I thought, so I opened my blog. And then - “Ang blog na ito ay natanggal na. Hindi na ito maaring magamit in the future”. It made my heart beat faster. I tried again but to no avail. There and then, I began to panic. Pinagpawisan ako ng malamig. I don’t know what to do ‘cos that was the first time it happened to me evarrr.
6:53 pm. I posted my dilemma in U-Blog pero I think no one was online then ‘cos I didn’t get any replies.
Around 7 pm. I pm-ed Mei (@meichagas. com) to ask for help but she’s also clueless. According to her, she doesn’t know how blogspot works. Shikes! Malaking problema ito, I thought. At that time, I was teary-eyed na and I was shaking. I felt so helpless. I can’t relate my problem to Mom (who was also in the living room at that time) ‘cos: first, I am she doesn’t know what to do as much as I do; second, baka magtatalon pa siya sa tuwa (read Living Inside A Pressure Cooker).
7:16 pm. The dust began to settle and it became clearer to me that my 3 year-old blog is gone. And so, followed a period of disbelief – what happened? Where did I go wrong? With no tangible answers, I consulted my 5th personality (Detective Awesome) and he came up with these 3 theories:
A. Maybe I violated a rule in the terms of services of Blogger. Breach of contract, ganun? Hala ka diyan! But I don’t think so naman. (According pa naman sa mga feng shui experts, lapitin ako ng mga court cases. Sheet!)
B. You guys know how much I love incorporating profanity, spiteful commentaries and lascivious insinuations in my articles. Maybe some of my articles raised some eyebrows and had hurt someone’s feelings.
C. Or, maybe someone is just plain envy with my awesomeness. Like an old saying goes,“ang punong hitik na hitik ng bunga ay pilit na binabato”. :D
Honestly, I shed some tears (but it didn’t have the balls to turn me into cry bitch mode).It’s probably worse than any heartbreak I had in the past. But just like any relationship that comes to an end, I need to accept it and move on. I grieved it for a while, yes, and then took the first step in moving on. I grabbed my notebook and pen and started to plan for my next blog.

1:00 am. I went to bed. I was barely able to sleep that night err morning brought about by the difficulty of absorbing all that had happened during the last 6 hours.
2:15 am. I woke up, opened the computer and attempted to log in again. And guess what happened next?
Hello there, gorgeous!
It’s back! It's freaking back! My spirits soared to an all-time high and my enthusiastic self went back on track once. Gusto kong tumambling. P%&*#$ @!= niyo Blogger, you scared the hell out of me! I thought I’ll never get to see my dashing dashboard again. But still, thank you. This incident made me realize how much I treasure this blog.
