I’ve just had my first ever article published in the fancy and famous Huffington Post! (If you’re a cool kid, you may know it as the “HuffPo”.) Want to read it? Great!
The article has some surprising moments, and also features a rockin’ photo slideshow. Please leave comments and questions, and share it widely! The HuffPo is sweet, but it has so much content that articles get buried, and I want to make sure that our story of 42 remarkable Boston students traveling in China gets out there.
This delicious news comes at just the right time to lift my spirits from the ordeal this site endured for much of this month.
As you may know, on March 4, 2012, the Dreamhost webhost company had a meltdown, incapacitating my two sites as well as one million others. For the past 11 days, I’ve spent hours on the phone and on email with Dreamhost trying to get my sites working again.
Writing is my joy and sanity and this site my second home, so you can imagine my personal meltdown incurred by the meltdown of Dreamhost.
I’m THRILLED to report that Dreamhost has now fixed the problem (meaning I’ve started breathing again), and I’ve also installed other “under the hood” fixes. Hopefully the site is now not only functional for you again, but also speedier than before!
Thanks again for your support of our against-the-odds student trip to China, and thank you again for your support of my complete and total obsession with blogging! :)
