Putting Pen to Paper...

How we React to Things...

Artist Susan Jane May sketchbook at Studio2Artwork

I recently had a situation happen to me that comletely knocked me for six, floored me, upset me beyond belief and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. Nothing.


My website provider switched my site builder from one day to the next, completely reformatting my website. The first I knew about it was when I clicked on my site and thought it didn't look right and definitely not how I left it last time.. Different fonts, mis-aligned text, different colours...


All the hours of SEO work that I'd learnt how to do had gone. Nothing there. Removed. Blank sheet. From 21st October 2020 this was, effectively, a new site on the net. Old stats gone. Tools I'd relied on since first building my site in 2008 gone. Just gone.


About two months ago I did receive an email about upgrading the site at some point. No date given and no communication whatsoever since. No heads up on the change over date - nothing. I had no chance to screen shot info or key words and there's no tutorial on how to use the new builder. Do you laugh because it's nuts or do you cry... I cried.


 I felt like I'd lost a huge part of me - a bit silly maybe but there you go, that's how I felt. I liked to look back to see what visits I'd had from where and see how my site had done over the years. I was really proud of the 80% SEO mark I'd managed to get by tweaking a word here, adding a different phrase there, making some words plural and others not... all these little things make the difference and it was a fair bit of a learning curve for me - I've got none of them saved , of course..


So... Anyways... Deep breath...


I recently treated myself to a lovely book - The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. A truly beautiful book.

The Boy, The Mole, the Fox and the Horse book by Charlie Mackesy

On one of the pages it says " One of our greatest freedoms is how we react to things ".


So very true..


Can I live without all that archived data? Yes, of course..

Can I learn how to use this new builder? Yes...

Will it take me hours to re-do the SEO work? Yes!!! :(

But can I do it? Oh yes...


Um... Is it easier to write this blog post in the new builder format...? Yes.

Does my website now have that lovely little secure padlock icon? Yes.

Might I learn to love this new builder? Oh probably...


There's a cherry in here somewhere - I just have to find it...

And find that pesky, invaluable SEO analyser... now where on earth has that gone???

What a Day.. and I don't know quite where to start.. 
It's the beginning of my busy season for sure and I'm really pleased with what I've done today ... And it was WOW  Day too wasn't it? I was listening to the radio this morning about that on my way to swimming and thought it was a very positive thing to be hearing in the car amongst all the Brexit stuff.
By the way, it's a late post today because I've been so very busy - but I do have my helper here as always... whatever am I going to do without you HP?? ..

I do love to go swimming 
each morning if I can. It works for me so well because it makes me feel more energized, I've always 
Loved swimming!  Love the water!  (I'm a double Aquarian by the way - both Sun and Moon - it figures...) and I aim to do 30 - 50 lengths each time I go... But I'm also a tad competitive and today I pushed to 56 ha!
This, plus a decent sized Cappuccino, can do absolute wonders for my day!!!

Including the hand making of just over 8 metres of box pleat ribbons...

I've got a bad touch of the Ree Ree's.. aka The Pioneer Woman...who I now admit I follow and watch all the time... and my family Love it...

I must show thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular challenge. Because of browsing throughout the the net and seeing opinions which are not powerful, I believed my life was well over. Being alive minus the answers to the issues you have fixed as a result of this review is a critical case, as well as ones which could have adversely affected my career if I hadn't noticed the website. Your own knowledge and kindness in playing with everything was important. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come across such a step like this. I'm able to at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for this skilled and amazing guide. I won't think twice to propose the website to anybody who would need care on this issue.
