I just became aware that my blog on Journalspace no longer exists. Indeed, none of the blogs on journalspace exist,and they suspect employee sabotage. http://www.blogherald.com/2009/01/02/journalspace-blogging-platform-dies-why-you-must-keep-your-own-backups/
Ever wonder why you should back up your blogs? I haven't actively written on that blog in a few months so I'm not crying too hard. They may or may not be able to retrieve blogs down the road. It is a shame if I lost all those years of blogging, but I am glad I didn't put all my eggs in one basket as I also blog here, on tribe.net, on journalspace, on vox, and on some others. That way if any one of them goes belly up, I don't lose everything. I will survive.
