Blogging and WorldisGreen
Unfortunately my other site, www.worldisgreen.com which I have been consistently writing for the past 8 months on rural India is down and almost out.
I was in the process of shifting the website from one hosting provider to another. In the process I did not the renew the present hosting service. I continued to use the service for about 5 days after the expiry of the service. The hosting provider stopped the service, deleted the files on his server and now I am without my website. I did not have a back-up too and here I am.
I can get back the data from the tapes of the hosting provider but it would cost me $70. I think that this is a steep price and do not want to spend that kind of money.
Google has been kind enough to archive my whole site. I saved all the files (not 300 HTML cached pages but 6 HTML pages of my categories). So I have the data but it will be tough to put it back on the website.
I will be now using wordpress, a open source publishing tool for the new website. Apart from this I was planning to change the structure of the website according to the way I want to go forward.
I guess this incident has acclerated the process. I only hope that I get my readers back. And for the Google ranking I think "we" can get it back.
