I'd deleted my Gmail account without knowing that my precious blog was linked to that address. So as soon as the email address was deleted, the blog disappeared right along with it. As you can imagine, I was *devastated*. I've been emailing Google all night and day and finally got a response from an actual knowledgeable human. They talked me through restoring the old email address and recovering the blog It took two minutes and in a flash (poof!) the blog was back up and running! Whew! I'm so relieved. There are so many memories and wonderful family photos on here that cannot be replaced.
Thank you, Universe (and Google Support).
