Occult View may experience technical difficulties

OCCULT Add comments

My blog the Occult View will be moving to a new hosting service shortly.  I expect everything to move across without mishap, but there is always the chance of technical difficulties.  If something goes amiss and the Occult View disappears, it should return shortly.  Knock on wood.

I started my blog on Christmas Day, 2008.  Why?  One cold and dreary night a week before Christmas, while walking down a blustery snowy street, I slipped on ice and badly twisted my ankle.  I was able to get to my day job utilizing crutches and a garbage bag wrapped around my swollen foot.  But at home I was not moving.  I was stuck on the couch with my foot raised and nothing to do.  So I decided to start a blog.

My first idea was a blog about doodling.  After a few minutes I realized that was a bad idea.  So I started a blog about a lifelong interest of mine: the paranormal, the occult and beliefs outside the mainstream.  I don’t sell anything on my blog.  I write because I feel these topics are important.  There really is another level to reality which is hard to see or understand.  It should not be ignored.

Upgrade Update: On Saturday December 10 my site was “suspended”.  I am using too much of this service’s server space.  I have clearly outgrown my current hosting service.  To upgrade with them could cost 4 times a month what other hosting services charge.  I don’t think so.  I am back up temporarily, but the final move has yet to be made.  My technical skills are wobbly, but I have a talented young lady who will help me.  Thank you E!

On my sidebar is a cool widget, a Flag Counter.  It shows the daily visitors to this blog.  Well, Saturday it descended into oblivion.  My worry is that people will think my site is gone and never visit again.  That is why I posted my “technical difficulties” warning ahead of time.  I’m still here!

    I would suggest that you back it up to your computer first.That way you will still have it.

    Hi Mike,
    I have it backed up. I’m just worried I might have problems properly recreating it on the new host. I am sure I fret over nothing.

    I am happy you moved beyond doodling. I don’t know how I came across your blog a few days ago, but I enjoy returning and reading. These topics are important and you present them most interestingly.

    Hi Roger,
    I am still in the middle of my move to a new hosting service. My blog was down this past Saturday. Since my blog is taking up too much of my current host’s server, they suspended my account. So there may be more disruptions in service as the move is actually made. What a headache. When I started my blog I never imagined I’d run out of space.
