I am freaking estatic! I am so farking happy!
The reason is… I got my WordPress.com blog back!! Yes, you hear that right, my old ‘The Flaccid Mind’ is accessible again! Little walk down the memory lane for you that doesn’t know the story. I started blogging in Friendster, then ventured out to WordPress.com free blog. Now that I can access the blog again, I found out I wrote a total of 133 posts between August 2006 to November 2007. I was not really that productive at that time. One fine day, when I tried to access the blog, I was shocked to be redirected to a page with a message
“This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.”
I tried to reach the WordPress.com support team many times after that but they couldn’t be reached. I remember when I went to the support page, the message I got was ‘Support Temporarily Closed – Support is closed for the weekend”, which kinda funny because I did try to access the page on other time. After a while I got fed up, I opened a new blog at Blogspot and you guys know how much I hate Blogspot so the affair didn’t last long. When Cibol grabbed his own dot.com I also courted one, the rest is history.
So, how suddenly I got my WordPress.com blog back? Well, yesterday I was reading The Dandelions and some how I decided to check out the support page. There is a contact form there, so I filled it up. I was still restless over the reason my old blog was suspended, being in the dark over things is insanely frustrating . A year has passed by since it was suspended, but I thought no harm trying to ask and perhaps Wordpress.com would have an answer for me.
This morning I received an email from WordPress.com staff (I presume):
I am really sorry about that happening – I really cannot explain why. But it should not.
The blog is back as it was, you have lost nothing.
I am sorry for the surprise (shock) and annoyance.
Now I that I got it back, I am thinking of importing my old posts to this blog. I hope I am not doing anything stupid and mess up this blog. The old posts should be available in a while. *fingers crossed*
