It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve posted anything on my Blog. I know….I’ve been a slacker aka procrastinator – and I admit it. During the month of February, I was dealing with a lot of challenges. I had several family members pass away; I had to work on my taxes cos my appointment with the tax lady was coming up – I had neglected to keep up on my data entry throughout the year so I was being really stressed about getting my ledgers in order and blah blah blah. Then about the time I was going to post here, my laptop crashed.  But that’s not what I wanted to write about here.


back up your files


I had not saved anything – not backed up my files or my photos on any external or portable drive – and I was really devastated when my laptop screen froze up.  I was sick to my stomach when I realized that all that was gone.  My youngest grandson is 5 so all of his pictures that I had taken was lost forever.  The files I could re-do…it would take some work, but it was doable.  The photos, not so much.

So the point of this post people, is that everyone…bloggers, business men and women, everyone…take heed!  They’re not kidding when they say it is important to back up your files.  You never know when your technology device will go south.  I’ve learned my lesson!
