For better or worse, that’s just how I learn.
I make mistakes.
I eff up.
And then (mostly) I learn what went wrong and I continue forward in a better direction.
About a year ago, I "upgraded" to a virtual server to host all my websites. (For your sake, I hope you have no clue what I virtual server is… I wish I did not). Since that time, I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time listening to Muzak playing the theme from The Sting on an endless loop. (In my personal hell, this would be the soundtrack…it’s the same soundtrack that blared from an ice cream truck parked right outside the classroom window and I was taking a mind-bending, time-pressured Stats 2 final exam in grad school… da da da da daaa da daad da daaaa….)
My intention was to save time, money, and energy and I’ve created the exact opposite. It happens.
I’ve taken on way too much responsibility and spent my time putting out an endless series of fires. I’ve been so frustrated I wanted to cry a few times. In the past month, it’s prevented me from writing much here — either the site’s been down or there’s been some problem (I still cannot post pix from my vacation).
But I think I’ve finally got it now.
I’m getting all this stuff out of my hands. I’m hiring someone to do what needs to be done. I’m simplifying things. My intention is to do what I do best and cheerfully pay people to help me with the rest.
In the meantime, I’ll ask for some more of your patience to get things sorted out on this end.
I will return. Hopefully soon.
And definitely stronger.
Just don’t make me listen to the Sting anymore, okay?
