I'm going to start this by saying I really don't like when blogger's apologize for not blogging, especially if they do it often. This isn't what that is. I took an unapologetic short break while I went back home for the holidays and I'm glad I did, I had an amazing trip I barely looked at a screen the whole time, it was awesome and I'll be posting some photos shortly.
If you've tried coming here this past week and noticed my blog redirected to some random site I am sorry and it's all fixed now. I was having a huge problem renewing my domain, it was a nightmare for me and I have spent this past week on the phone, crying my eyes out, sending emails, crying some more, yelling profanities, sending more emails, trying to fix a problem that should have never happened in the first place. Any time I would try to take photos or start a blog project I would feel so defeated, I just didn't want to even think about it. However, I do take full responsibility for the mistake.
I've been blogging for a couple of years now, I've had this site for a year and have run into SO many obstacles and issues because I'm not a photographer, a programmer, a graphic designer, a writer, or any other kind of professional I need to be by having this blog. I ran into an issue a little less than a year ago that caused every photo on my blog to disappear forever. I've spent money on DIY projects that became complete flops and never saw the light of day. I've been through so much heartache just trying to keep this thing afloat because I love doing this so much and because before I had this little blog I could never dream of designing a website or graphics, editing a photo (or even taking a decent photo), and learning photoshop.
This really isn't a post on how great I think I am but I have impressed myself, I've never done something for this long, seen so much improvement and stayed so dedicated. Again, I know my blog is a tiny speck on the internet but for what I'm using it for, trying to discover what I want to do with my life professionally, it's been an amazing experience watching myself grow. The point I'm trying to make is that finding solutions to these many massive issues is such an empowering feeling, there's nothing like it.
Have you experienced any big issues with your blog or website or am I just a total internet klutz?
