Bringing “Carolina Arts Unleashed” a Blog by Tom Starland, Editor/Publisher of “Carolina Arts Back” from the Dead

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

The shock of losing my blog, Carolina Arts Unleashed, was about as much of a shock that it could be recovered and how soon it was back – thanks to our Super Blog Guru Zelda Ravenel. And, thanks to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which keeps track of 435 billion web pages – including Carolina Arts.

I’ve used the Wayback Machine in the past to check out how some people have tried to change their history or make people forget about it by “upgrading” their website. I just didn’t think about it when we lost Carolina Arts Unleashed. I guess I just wasn’t thinking clearly. It’s a good thing others, who know alot more about how the Internet works are around for folks like me who don’t have a clue about any of it – other than using it as a tool for communication. What hurt the most was that I had forgotten what was all there to be lost.

I haven’t been using Carolina Arts Unleashed that much in the last year or so as I’m posting more items at our blog Carolina Arts News. We post items people send me to pass on to our readers, where as posts at Carolina Arts Unleashed usually are generated by me – which takes more time – time I don’t seem to have much of these days. As is – Carolina Arts Unleashed has been up more than a week now and I’m just finding time to make my first posting post lost/return.

Unfortunately, while the blog went missing we lost our spot in the rankings of the Internet search engines. I’m not sure we’ll ever get back to where we were, I guess it all depends on how people discover what we have on the blog. Our Super Blog Guru tells me that all the links people made to different post we had there should all still be functional – I hope they are and I’m sorry for any that don’t work, but I guess the good thing is they can now be re-made.

Well that’s all for now. It’s good to be back.
