Back by popular demand…

After an enforced and unplanned sabbatical, Cllr Iain Lindley’s Diary is now back up and running, albeit from a slightly different location.

I’ve used the same company to host my blog since I started blogging in 2004 – it seems a long time ago now! My hosting was excellent value for money and I have never had cause to complain. Unfortunately about a month ago, a problem with another site hosted on the same server forced the whole lot offline. This was out of my control and out of my host’s control. I had no notice so I was unable to back up my data, including the archives for this blog.

I had hoped that the situation would resolve itself quickly and I would have been able to resume blogging, but unfortunately it is now clear that this is not the case. In the circumstances, I have decided to pick up blogging again on a new server, and so here I am!

I hope to regain control of the web address soon, and I will redirect the address to this new site when I am able to do so. I don’t know when I’ll get access to my data but I will import all the archives onto this new blog when I manage to do so.

Thank you to everyone who has e-mailed or messaged me asking when my blog will be back, it’s good to know that there are people out there reading what I write!

It’s good to be back.
