Here’s the thing – somewhere around the start of the pandemic in 2020, my old site was hacked. The attacker put in code to redirect to another site. I spent a few nights trying to track it down and fix it, but finally decided to just rebuild. Yes, it’s tedious, but it’s less tedious than troubleshooting the innards of WordPress.
So I’m in the process of rebuilding it. I know what you’re saying: “Steve, you’re in tech, didn’t you have a backup?” Well, yes and no. I had a copy of the WordPress files and the database, but because of the hosting plan I was on, I couldn’t update them. So I decided it was easier to start over. tl:dr – Old site is gone, this is the new one, move on.
I’m also looking at this as an opportunity to rebuild what I want to put out in cyberspace. When I started the old SteveHeyl.com, I wanted it to be “professional”. I looked at other comedians’ sites and tried to make my site look like them. But that’s what Linked In is for, so let’s make this a little more fun.
