where have all my websites gone?

I woke up this morning, in the usual way.. but this one is very different. All my websites are gone. Just gone gone. I’m on tech support and they’re investigating. This is not good. Countless hours of work in the thousands. Not sure I’ve reached the mythical 10,000 hours mark. Vanished into thin air?

I’ve been blogging 20 years, podcasting for over 10 years, a handful of other websites for good things, and they’re just gone. I have some backups, one website at a time, but it’s going to take many hours to restore and reconstruct. Lord help me.

To retrace my history, have to think up and recall all the websites that are affected, since I didn’t keep track of all of that. Let’s see, here’s what I’m remembering and noting, as I work on (some) restoration, and it’s making me wonder if I’m going to restore everything, or just some things.
