You would think in this digital day and age, where everything is there to find, and it is virtually impossible to remove anything from the Web, that there would have been a way to have at least kept the content of APJ hovering in cyberspace . But no. The only way to even start to fix things is to have the slate wiped. Where did it go? We have no bloody clue. I managed to screenshot what I considered my three best posts, so I have something.
Editor’s note: My dear friends over at Australian Perfume Junkies are going through every blogger’s worst nightnare at the moment, so the Cookie Queen is here today to let everyone know what’s happening.

“There is some corrupted code that allowed malware to enter the APJ site. We have worked so hard but its proving resistant to our efforts. The places that offer a fix are expensive and not even failsafe, so we are seeking other avenues.“ – Portia Turbo
Australian Perfume Junkies as we know and love it has gone. Like the proverbial parrot. As some of you may know, APJ has been having some serious issues over the last months. Portia did think for a moment that they had been resolved, but sadly to no avail.
I know how sad Portia is to lose the Scent Diary, her personal journal for over a year. Not to mention the hard and loving work from all the other contributors.
But yeah, APJ will regroup in one way or another. In the meantime Tara has offered to let me carry on with my twice monthly posts here on A Bottled Rose. I couldn’t be more honoured. And excited.

APJ is merely resting.
