I finally decided to bite the bullet and update my WordPress again. They have already hit 2.8.3 so I figured it might be time. I had a hell of a time moving from 2.7.whatever to 2.8. My blog didn’t work for weeks and if it wouldn’t have been for importing to facebook I would have lost my posts since moving to wordpress (even though I exported my posts and thought I backed up before updating)
I was so incredibly nervous I had butterflys and sweaty palms. This time I pulled out all the stops. I exported my blog, and I backed it up 3 different ways. Thankfully it appears everything is in working order. At least, on the dashboard side of things. Now to see how everything else is looking.
