What better way to start [again] at the beginning than with a Weekly Photo Challenge.
My feet are again placed on the proverbial starting “Line“line as last week I unwittingly deleted all my followers that I had acquired over the many years I’ve been a WordPress user.
How did I make such an error?
I decided to change to WP.org and on following instructions, migrated data etc and followers over to the new site. After a few days of frustration I decided it wasn’t working for me, so returned to my WP.com. However on deleting my Jetpack subscription I did not realise that my followers would also be deleted.
Call me naive, or stupid if the cap fits, but as I still had my original site live, I simply presumed all would be well. No, it wasn’t
So all that’s left to do is to stand on the starting line once again and hit the ground running.
Ah as the French would say: c’est la vie…

I am so sorry to hear that you lost all of your followers! 😦 Maybe you can get in touch with WP and see if something can be done about it. It doesn’t make sense…if you transfer back you should be able to retain all that data but maybe that’s not the case.
Lovely shots all round. Really like the one of the dog by the beach and the sun going down. I’m guessing that was a sunset 🙂
Thank you for your kind comment, yes I did try support, they are saying because I deleted Jetpack from the new .org site, in doing so I deleted my followers.
And the image I think you’re referring to is of my Stanley but its actually sunrise 🙂

Oh dear, that IS horrific! Did you try support? Perhaps they can look at an older post or something???
Oh hello Tina, yes I did try support, they are saying because I deleted Jetpack from the new .org site, in doing so I deleted my followers. What I don’t understand is how that can occur for whilst my followers apparently came across in the ‘export’, none of my images did.
That’s actually the reason I decided to delete the .org as all of my original posts only showed the default theme images and not mine. When I questioned WP about this, I was told when migrating to .org, images do not transfer, and that I would have to go to each and every post and change the images – this would have been extremely time consuming, having blogged for approx 6 years.
