Best of Credit Cards & Saving Money Backup Edition

by Guest on November 19, 2010

Best of Credit Cards & Saving Money - Backup EditionI decided to name this week's edition of the Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money the backup edition because, well, I forgot to backup two key WordPress files. I overwrote my page.php file with my stylesheet and then spent the next six hours trying to recreate the old file. So, since most of us are bloggers, I thought I'd use this opportunity to remind everyone to backup, make backups of backups, and store at least six months of backups. That's my two cents.

Now, to the carnival. I didn't get a chance to read all submissions, but I enjoyed those I did. A couple of new blogs submitted this week and it was nice to hear these new voices. The rest are from the usual suspects who always put a good slant on topics that aren't always easy to write interesting articles about. Because I was up until 4 am fixing my WordPress problem, I did a lazy carnival, so here are this week's articles intelligently disorganized by InstaCarnival.

Don't feel bad–Google ate my last Frugal Feast, and I had to resort to using InstaCarnival, but thank god I had a place that kept backup posts!  I deleted my inbox, then hit "publish" on the blog, and then Google ate the frugal feast.

I saw that at the feast. I wish I thought to backup after I read that. Would have saved me a lot of time and anxiety.

Thanks for hosting and including my article! I have an automatic backup emailed to me every night, but that doesn't include all the necessary databases. I sometimes forget to perform the other backup that I need to do.

Thanks for the reminder!
