Last year, I lost my blog.
This Blog. Dupe’s Blog.
(I shared the full story on my YouTube channel in the first video I posted this year. Where I talked about my blessings and pains of last year).
Some of you noticed that the blog was down and reached out to me. I got mails from some of my blog readers asking me what was wrong. To some people, I explained the whole story. To others, I just said we’ll be back up soon.
I was already down myself. I didn’t need the extra external pressure.
I kept living day after day, hoping to get my blog back. Hope was slowly slipping out of me.
My posts. My traffic. My rankings on google. My work of 5 years. The beautiful community of readers I have here.
Would everything just go? Just like that?
I was praying. Hoping.
But on another hand, I came to peace with the fact that I may have lost it completely and may need to start from scratch.
I didn’t want to be too broken eventually if I couldn’t recover it.
I knew I didn’t stop being a blogger just because my blog was down. I was very aware that I am the main deal. The blog was my brain child. My product.
God was the source, I, the conduit. So, everything was in me.
But it still hurt very bad. That all the work I had put in would go just like that. I remember reading a blog some days ago and stopping in between to think about my blog.
But I had to encourage myself. God helped me start Dupe’s blog and he could help me recover it. And if he didn’t want me blogging anymore, then so be it.
I didn’t stop praying though. I needed clarity and Prayer would give me that.
Ife Grace was one of the people who reached out last year asking about the blog. When I let her in on everything, she said “There’s wisdom for this. God just needs to show us what to do”.
Then, just like magic, I was sitting down _jeje_ some days back when an idea dropped in my head. “Oh wow! Why didn’t I think of this earlier? For over one month that the blog was down and I didn’t even think of this “simple” thing?”
God works in mysterious and many times “funny” ways. Lol!!
He really uses “foolish” things to embarrass the “wise”.
He can drop one small idea in your head and it’ll change your entire life.
It’s not only when the message is “deep” that it’s from God.
Even the simple ones can be Him.
That was how I decided to try this small idea oh. All the while, I was asking myself “How didn’t you think of this earlier?”.
Long story short, this idea worked. Last week, I recovered my blog. And guess what? I was chatting with my hosting company and they said if it had delayed 1 or 2 more days, I would have lost my domain completely. Because it was already almost gone.
In fact, I had to pay extra dollars for them to redeem it. Lol.
Dear readers, This is to announce to you all that we’re back on the blog. Bigger and Better by God’s Grace!
My heart is so full and thankful. I’m so thankful to everyone who reached out. You are really amazing.
