Reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated

Mark-TwainHello World. It’s good to be back.

Scraps of Mind has been having a terrible time over the last four months.

The server was hacked and we discovered that the back-ups were corrupted. So that meant that the site had to be rebuilt from scratch.

Well Scraps of Mind has been around for seven years. And there are over 700 articles on this site. Together with bucket loads of graphics, videos and freebie downloads.

That’s a lot of rebuilding!

And then we discovered that some of the components had decided not to play nicely with each other. So things got extra complicated.

To be honest I actually thought that it was all-over-red-rover for Scraps of Mind, The Garden Party and the Step by Step Digital Scrapbook Tutorials.

But just when I was preparing the last rites, Thatch managed to breathe life back into the old girl and Seona has built a new template skin so it looks like we’re ba-ack.

So I’ll be putting together a freebie for you in the next few days to celebrate our revival. Make sure you stick around for it.

And in the meantime, have a rummage around the site and check out the goodies that are available here.

PS. Did you know that when you turn off the spam filter on your blog you get over 10,000 spam comments in a couple of months. That was fun to deal with…not.
