Wordy 'n' Wise Wednesday

I got another award! I was going to join in with Wordless Wednesday but it is just not possible when i have so much to shout about! My good friend, the beautiful Sweet Ariel gave me the Cool Cat Award!!! It's pink too - the colour that makes me think of Stormie in her pink neckerchief!

I think I can only pass this on to one I am going to pass this on to Skeezy cos he has been on the case for me with a question I asked on the Cat Blog Help Centre. You see, we wanted to know how to back up a Blogger blog...specifically Stormie's blog cos we would be devastated if it just disappeared or something. We couldn't find the answer anywhere, so we turned to Skeezy for help...and he came up with the answer! If you have a Blogger blog, this is how you back it up, instructions HERE.

We did a test run on my blog and it backed up all the posts and the comments - but not the pictures. It also seperated the comments from the actual posts they were related to i.e. you get all your posts first, then all the comments follow so it's kind of hard working out which comments belong to which post. I have emailed Blogger people and asked them if this 'normal' or whether it was my Meowmie doing something wrong...wither way, this back up facility is great and keeps your written word safe! THANK YOU Skeezy for finding this out for us!

Happy Wednesday to you!

Skeezy is great! And so you are you.

I suspect that it is normal. We don't use blogger but in wordpress, as in most blogging systems, everything that is written goes to a database rather than just a file--so each thing comes from a database. There will be different tables for comments and for posts so that you find the comments in a different section of the backup if you are just looking at it from a flat perspective. I suspect you also have a number of links in each post, which should point to each of your photos.

Congratulations on your pretty award!

What a wonderful award! Concatulations! And Skeezy is a good one to give it to!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Yeah I'd give Skeezix like every award if I could. I'm glad you got it backed up! We should do that with our individual blogs.

what a great award! i've been checking back often but it didn't look like you'd updated so i left a comment yesterday on an old post of yours. today i visited you from a comment you made on someone else's bloggy and you've updated!

weird. this happened once before to me on the Whiskers and Purrs blog when i visited them from my blogrolling list.

i'm glad you're still posting!!

Congratulations, Castle! We are very glad you have Stormie's blog backed up, all safe and sound now.

Yes, Skeezix is the best! He rocks and is funny and always helpful. And very knowledgeable too.
We wanted to thank you for participating in Emil's wake. It meant a lot to us, thank you!
We had an attack on our blog once that made us realize we need to have it backed up - just in case.
But instead of dealing with 'blogger' (which ALWAYS gives us a stomach ache) we made our maid spend a little money and got some GREAT software (it was recommended by a couple of other cats) that even she could handle to back up our blog (everything included)! It's called teleport:

Concatyoolayshuns on your award. Skeezix is a great choice to pass it on to as he has been very helpful when we have had problems

Sunny's Mommy said...

Skeezix is very helpful. I hope your Meowmie is able to work out the issues on the back up easily.

Congratulations on your award :-)

Lux said...

That's a really "cool" award! :)

ML said...

Hi Castle,
What a grrreat award.
We love Skeezix. He is fantastic.

Black Cat said...

ConCATulations on the award Castle dear, you deserve it. Good choice to award it to Skeezy. He helped me a lot when I first started blogging. I copy my blogs into Word (except when I forget, lol!). I didn't realise you could back them up in Blogger itself:) xxx

P.S. Those cottages in Devon look fab. Could your Meowmies get jobs in Devon perhaps?

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Congrats on your award Castle! I need to have Momma look into backing up our bloggy, so she will need to check out Skeezy's help.
Thanks for helping me celebrate my birthday Tuesday, it was SO much fun!

Miss Peach sure did surprise me by telling you about my vintage car blog. I want to thank you so much for your nice visit too, she sure has some great friends. I hope you enjoyed wandering around the old cars and thank you for not clawing the upholstery. Next time you come by, I will have some cat nip waiting and Miss Peach will serve some of her tea. Some VWs are classics in my mind,I'd like to have one
