Blog disaster management some tips and tricks

Dear Friends,

Good News is that I had finally fixed the ongoing issue with my blog ,post were getting unusual link.
It just happened on weekend that I happened to experimented with my blog comment section , and end-up deleting the posts and comments after taking the backup and then the real issue arise of putting blogs as well comments section in place.
I asked many blog masters in this regard and also google about it , but all went in vein as all suggested to create a new blog and import the blogger XML , but what about the followers , yes followers can't be exported to another blog if you delete the existing one create new one with the same name.
So I didn't pick this option and again looked for the some breakthrough , lastly I got some smile as I got a reply from fellow blogger Peter and gave me the Link of one of his post on recovering the deleted post. So I keep touch with him to resolve it.

But this only resolved the Post and followers , now comments were the issue as after recovery there is zero comments.
After running the brain horses, I tested the third party comment widget feature DISQUS today over the test blog and it worked i.e  I had the comment synchronised over DISQUS and it worked like wonders, though old post will show Zero comments but actually this Widget will show all previous comment if any visitor click to comment.
It was a great learning curve with this experimentation of me , I downloaded the XML editor and other log tools I normally uses which came handy.
So before everything goes over your head I will let you know , what to do when something went wrong or you deletes your blog accidentally ( not like mine doing intentionally ;) lol).
Few things always keep in mind

1) Always keep a backup of the posts as well template on a regular basis before making any changes to it.
2) Use third party comments integration tool like DISQUS and Intensedebate for better reply to individual comments in a threaded manner.
3)Never change the post title once published (1st decide then write), why ? because once you post over your blog a PostID is generated against it with the time-stamp over it so if we modify it we get another URL and PostID as well , which also makes it lagging behind in Google search or sometime will never come-up too.
4)Never give-up keep on trying , that's what I always do and most of the time its sweet.
5)use some search engine pinging service like PINGOMATIC to put our post in the search engines top searches to get our blog some visitors apart from sweet blog followers :).

So when we publishes a post over our blog with some keywords, 1st we get visitor secondly we also get in web cache of search engine and thereafter can browse the content even we don't have live link available how just, take any of the post URL paste it over Google and search it you will see something like below. click images to enlarge !.

if its deleted and inactive post , you can browse else you have it in cache after clicking it will show the date and time it was last updated.

Do following steps to recover the accidentally deleted blogs.

1) Get your blogID Number , to get it open any of your post in edit mode and look at its url ,you will find BlogID as well PostId of the post.

2) One new tab and open google to search for the post , you must know the Post keyword or title.

3) When you get post after Googling Click on cache

 
4) Press CTL+U to get source code


5) Search CTL + F  for postID and copy it and replace the PostID value on the edit tab and press enter, you will find the post you were so eagerly searching for and also find that when it was created by expanding "post option" . simply press publish and its done , it will not even show over Friends feeds too as it will get posted on the same date and time as before.
You go also use the above mentioned third party comments tools if you want to have comments backup (DISQUS and Intensedebate) if you have accidentally deleted the comments too like me (mine was a deliberate attempt though)

Hope this post helps.Do leave your experiences so we can share so others too get benefited at the same time.

P.S : Thanks to Peter and Fellow bloggers for making it I M POSSIBLE and making me believe if we wish to do something , there might come some hindrance in the way but , if we keep trying we will definitely get there where we want to :) Thanks all.

Thank you


life is a blessing
full of suprises,
I have known only this 
but never felt it.

my life has been both 
Sunny and Blue,
but in between both
there is my blessing
to have a friend like you
you never asked what I need
you just did it for me.

Of all my blessings,
this one is the best
you my best friend
I can't ask for more.

To have a friend like you, 
In hardship,
I simply appreciate
your dauntless spirit 
like flowers of the field, 
trampled and trampled 
by strong winds and rain
but still blooms, 
delighting and soothing 
all who sees

Sometimes it's better 
to put love into words
than into hugs.
I would say
just be this way always
keep on smiling.
P.S : I have been awarded as "Super Blogger of the Week" by my fellow blogger Mehreen from the perfect line fame for Friends Meetup Party, this poem is my dedication towards it. Happy Easters wishes to all fellow bloggers , have a great weekend enjoy :).

Bemused Heart

Who are you looking for, poor heart
Wonderingly staring at nothing?
I know the sweet dream is finished,
Vanished, it will never be back again.

Who are you looking for?
The little girl,
whom you spoke to of love,
was nothing but a false color,
dissolved in the reality.

You found her down there,
down that dark alley,
with her head leaning
on a wall greenish for dampness.

Do you recall?
she told you, she told you..
but you spoke to her of love
and she gave you her heart
by crying with Joy.

That very small face,
that blond hair, 
those looks,
those eyes,
who can forget?

You want to talk with those beautiful,
wide shining eyes,
those eyes are lifeless now,
gazing upon eternity.
P.S : This poem is for today's Friends Meetup Party a space for bloggers to express and share their views.. feeling etc ;).

one sided affair

From last few weeks I had been into a different Zone, the pain zone. Yeah you heard it right. Pain which is killing me softly, this Wednesday I went to a dentist for checkup, as one of my Jaw teeth was paining.
I didn't have an appointment, as I decided all of a sudden in evening while coming from office.
My turn was last, it was kind of boring no time pass, what to do...hmm then opened by cell and started Facebook chat and asked some of my friend about it ,since it was my maiden visit to a dentist ; so it’s kind of unpredictable what gonna be the course of activity I will go through.
As some sounds of drilling machine were very much audible in the reception, I was scared...and wished I will not go through this process.
It was quite a wait of 40 Minutes approx and during this I spoke and get some insight of it from friends online.
When I entered into room, I saw dentist was a girl ...a bit relax thinking she will examine me calmly then their counterpart.
The torcher process started lights on, she asked to open the mouth, then with a magnifying lens she ticked over my teeth and it pained liked anything.
then other instruments, and after checking it I was told there is a cavity and infection, she told me it will cost you 2k and 2 more sittings after today, you teeth will be ok, I said just do it, It has been 3 weeks since I'm deprived of having  ice-cream and juice and life has become a one-sided affair, so just do it.
The special drilling machine was out, a bit scary though.. (don’t know what they call it) and some sharp pins, slowly gradually the machine was inserted into mouth and then the actual pain begun, it was paining like anything. When it pains I close my mouth, she says don't close the mouth keep it open...I was in a state of slave..Who can just lay down with mouth remains intact in the state as it was asked to be.
I read lots of articles about dentist in the school days which looked quite same to same in the experience.

After that It was around 9:30 PM and I was also given a list of medicines including pain killers. My lips were swollen and dentist said 2 more sitting and you will be fine.My 2nd one is on this Saturday and next one next week.
Hope no more pain...only ice ice cream.. ;).

P.S : Today I regret the day when I was trying to crack the walnut with my teeth instead of walnut one part of teeth get out that time I didn't take it seriously but slowly gradually it  has become a cavity :(.Today in the second half I have got 2nd sitting ..hope it don't pain much.
