The System Crashed and I lost 2 weeks worth of Data!

WordPress did an automatic update today, Sunday May 11, and while doing so , the site crashed while backing up. As a result, 2 complete weeks of data were lost! That includes comments to giveaways. I will re-post all the reviews/giveaways but I cannot recover the comments on the posts. The good news is that since Giveaway Tools is a separate website, your entries are recorded there. So there is no need to panic if you entered any of the giveaways that were affected.
Since I will have to post again, the giveaways ending times will be extended to recover some of the lost time.
So bear with me while I get everything sorted out!

    Sorry you have to do all of that extra work but I would be careful on extended giveaway times as that is against FTC policy and I wouldn’t want to see you get into trouble for that. We appreciate all of the hard work that you do.

      Hi Shelly.
      Thanks for letting me.
      I am going to leave the dates on the giveaways that are up as it.
      And just change the ones that I am re- posting as it is like they do not exist right now:(

        It is a pain in the butt when these technical things happen! I once had my entire side bar disappear and it took me 3 days to fix it. Sigh!

    Don’t you hate when that happens. Sorry you had to do so much more work. You already do so much I don’t know how you get it all done.
