The One With The Revival Of My Blogging Mojo

Sunflowers in the Sky

You may not have noticed that I haven’t been blogging for close to a month. Or if you have noticed, probably you did because you tried to visit my blog, only to be warned by your respective bouncers of a browser that my crown, You Got Me Blogging, has been unduly colonised by an army of malwares.

That despicable act was so unjust, so unfair, that I do not even know where to begin. With the unbloggable dethronement, I descended to the dungeon of misery, navigating helplessly through the Google Webmaster daunting maze while trying to weed out the offending malware. Endless days and nights were spent battling to replace my crown where it rightly should be at.

As it became clear that I couldn’t fight this war alone, I left the dungeon and ascended to my tower of a lighthouse, signaling for help. And help came, in the form of the King of Petphotogs and Princess of WordPress. Together, over endless emails, DMs and MSN, we weeded out the terrorists, moved my crown to a better throne and reinstated my place in the blogging world.

That, my friend, is what you are looking at. You Got Me Blogging is now officially sitting at http://www.razlan.net, not on the .name domain anymore. Kindly update your bookmarks and linkrolls, my beloved readers.

And yes, within minutes of my re-coronation, the silent observer Google cleared my name, and all is good again in the world of search engines.

I have much to rejoice and to blog about. The Bangkok trip that spanned over six eventful days, the downfall of my blog (which rightfully deserves a series of posts on its own, but why wallow in that miserable past?), the endless blogging ideas lined up…

All in good time, my friend. Before you know it, the delicious awesomeness that are my blog posts will once again present itself on your email/RSS/Twitter for your (hopefully delightful) inspection.

Once again, a shout out to Nicholas Lee and Veron Ang, without whom this blog may have not seen the light of the day again.
