Ah Wordpress. I love you, you stab me in the back. To be fair, I could invest the time in figuring out what the @$%^$ is going on and extract all my content and build a new server and... But then I do IT for a living and I would never advise me to to that. I would say "do you really want to invest your time in learning and maintaining something when you could be focusing on what you actually do, taking photos and writing meandering posts"
So this is me, following my own advice. I'm trying out two website builder sites (wix and squarespace) and I'm going to build out two new sites and then have them fight to the death in a Star Trek planet surface like battle.
In time I may figure out how to recover all the content from my wordpress site. Or maybe not.
