It’s been a long time since I had a blog. Many years passed and I always missed having a place to upload my photos, thoughts and projects.

I had a blog in my own language for many years, I don’t even remember when exactly I started. It was around 2007 or 2008 (it is slowly fading away). Every year I uploaded many photos, some stories and even adventures my girlfriend and I attended. In first months and even whole first year I had very little visitors but I was still happy to post all the time. It was a nice way to share a little piece of my life to the world (well, my country at that time). In 2010 I hit 5.000 visitors, which was a lot for me at that time and I was really happy with it.

More visitors I had, more boost to post I had. In 2013 I was getting near 20.000 visitors. For a small blogger posting in my own language this was a lot. But it soon came to an end.

August 4th, 2013 I open my blog and all I see is: “HACKED”.. my blog was gone. Every post, every image, everything. I was devastated.. I didn’t know what to do. I checked my server and everything was gone. A “noob” I was then, no backups, so many mistakes, I shake my head today..

So a small part of me was gone and I was wondering what to do now. Try to rebuild or leave it in the past? I decided to rebuild so I started from a fresh WordPress installation and re-uploaded a lot of my old posts. But it wasn’t for long. Not even a year later my installation got corrupted and I lost it again. I am still not sure if I was hacked once more or if there was something I did wrong.

And that was the end of my blog… until now

Hopefully, this time it goes well.
