It has been several weeks now since I last wrote, and I have many reasons. One is that I have started some new business ventures that have pulled me away a bit. You know how those can be, easy to get immersed in getting ready, to get ready.
Second is that my primary job for my earnings, has demanded more time of late since it is warming up where I live, and that affects my business. Gotta pay the bills you know!
The third reason that it has taken so long, if you have visited the site of late is pretty easy to figure out. I will admit, I crashed the site. I crashed it big time, or as our new President would say, BIGLY!
It started out innocent enough, me just trying to save some money (I like to do that when I can). Deciding to not have my site hosted on one type of server set-up, but instead have it moved to another where I can host a multiple of sites. A good way to save some money they told me. No big deal to move it they told me.
For me the no big deal line, usually means LOT of trouble for me, and it certainly did in this case. I actually tried to move two sites at the same time, making matter double the fun, just teasing.

They said that it would be easy, and even sent me specific instructions, a YouTube video, and even walked me through half of the process for one of the sites. I thought, wow, this is going to be great, and I can get it done in a day, at most……wrong!
Well, that should have been the signal, so much information coming to me at once. What was supposed to be easy, ended up being time-consuming, nerve frazzling, and in the end, I had to pay them to do it anyway.
What I learned was this, and it’s a lesson that I have already known for a long time.
If you aren’t good at something, don’t try to do it yourself, when you can hire others to do it for you in a fourth of the time. You focus on what you are great at, and let others do what they are great at. In the end, you will have what you want, and you can then put your stuff where you want it to be. (thanks to others)
So, in closing it will take a bit of time to get caught up. As well as the lesson about hiring others to do major tech stuff, I also realized some other things.
As it relates to my website I realized, I need to focus more, write more often, and fine-tune the overall look and feel of the site a bit. So actually several great lessons came forward, and not only the type that cost my wallet!
