Well, so far everything is back up and running. The first thing that I put up was my site security and the Anti-spam. During the time that I set up the new theme, I watched the security monitor. For a while I had hackers from to Chinese universities, one in Beijing, and one in Peking. They’re still there and trying. I have to give them credit for being ambitious.
I hated losing all of the comments, but such is life when dealing with servers and websites. I set up the backup plugin, but I’m not sure how that is going to work. When I tried to restore from the backup, i got a message that the backup files were corrupt. I keep the last two backups of everything. My files are backed up every Friday and my WordPress database is backed up every 12 hours automatically. I guess I Will be doing FTP backups as well from now on just to be safe.
Today, I’m gonna spend the day giving Johnny all the attention he can take. I think he felt a little neglected yesterday. I’m sure you know how tough it is to work on a computer with a cat standing in the middle of your chest. He’s been having a little separation anxiety lately. The vet suggested that I should put Johnny on low dose Xanax pills for this anxiety. I don’t think so! I know what those pills do to humans, and I certainly would never subject Johnny to that.
Sometimes I’ll take him out in the hallway and let him run for a little while. The building manager told me a few weeks ago about letting him run in the hall. “YOU CAN’T LET HIM RUN UNSUPERVISED IN THE HALLWAYS!” I don’t. With the crowd that the new owners moved into this building I would never leave him alone in the hallway. I’ve been taking him out in the hall at least twice a day since I moved in here 12 years ago, and nit-wit manager or not, that will not change. A few of the tenants, when they see me out with Johnny, will let their cats out and Johnny has a grand old time. For being almost 14 years old, he still has a lot of kitten in him.
As for the site, I’ll need another day or so to get things up and running the way I want them. I started using the Divi theme which I’m kinda learning as I go. I got the logo to sit nicely up in the top left corner. I have no idea how I did it. I clicked something and it went right up where I wanted it. I have no idea what I clicked, but I decided to leave it alone lest I screw it up. lol I figured out how to put up a header. Now I have to figure out how to get my images to stop looking like I shot them through a dirty camera lens. For a minute I actually thought it was my eyes. Just in case I went and cleaned my glasses. But my images are still a little fuzzy. Oh well, I’ll figure that out.
Something else that has been kinda weird but nice this week. Last Monday I had 832 followers on my Instagram page. Today I have 2,524 followers. I’ve been averaging almost 300 new followers daily. I don’t follow everybody. I made that mistake a while back and ended up with a following of about 800, and most of them were working girls looking for sugar daddies. They wanted to know everything there was to know about me, especially financial information. I never gave them anything. Most of the time I would just annoy them for as long as I could until they dropped out of the chat. This time I’m being a little more choosy about who I accept and decline follows from.
Well, somebody is giving me the look which means I should put the computer down and give him all of my attention.
After yesterday, I think I need it just as much as he does.
