Some of you already got to know my old blog last year. I had put together a blog in German and Spanish, where I reported about my experiences in Argentina. It was a very nice way to stay in touch with my family and friends in Germany. But also, the people in Argentina liked to read what I experienced over there. I posted many photos and reports of excursions in my old blog.
Writing in two languages
Over time it became very time consuming for me to write in German and Spanish. In addition, I travelled so much and experienced so much that I often couldn’t keep up with writing. That’s why the frequency of my publications had decreased.
A few months ago, a hacker gained access to my webspace and deposited harmful files on it. I’ve had a website for many years and something like this had never happened to me before. That’s why I didn’t create backups of my files. And since my WordPress system consists of several thousand files, I couldn’t differentiate which files were added by the hacker.
So I had to take my old blog completely off the net. But I don’t think that this is so tragic. Because I am just starting a new chapter in my life and it fits to have a new website for it. So if you’re wondering where my old blog has gone – that’s the explanation!
I like the new site better anyway and I have learned from my mistakes. I will regularly make a backup of the whole webspace. And yes: from now on everything is completely in English. On the one hand, because it saves me a lot of work. On the other hand, because I can reach people who speak neither German nor Spanish.
Here you have the old and the new blog design for comparison:
