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???

Crime Scene Investigation

Posted on 17 March, 2018 at 12:41
Well Hi there and Hello :)
 
And... we have Snow here again in Suffolk today – and yes, there’s those buckets out there all waiting to be sorted… again... But, hey, I have a blog to write yes? Very important I get this done right now…and Lils totally agrees that the bestest place to be right now is inside, looking out, while baking gently in the warmth of the radiator …

I’ve got to say that, when I first came in the office this morning, it did all look a bit ‘Miss Marple’ like …or for those of us with Netflix, ‘Miss Fisher’ like ha! There was his Royal Niblets all collapsed under one of the desks … I guess he just couldn’t stand the thought of any more office work after yesterday…

Hang on a mo… let’s do a bit of a ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ makeover on this photo… aha, here we go! Oh dear, poor Harls…it was all just too much for him bless…

And talking of crime scenes…well…yesterday, what a day it was in here!
I wonder if anyone else out there has had this happen to them?....
What it was-was, when I opened up my Gmail first thing yesterday, ALL 
my starred-and-very-important emails had disappeared. Gone. Vanished.
Not there.
BIG tummy over moment. I label everything, always keep everything in groups. 
And there they all were – Gone. Disparu. Vanished.
 
So…detective hat on and Voila!… in my Bin there were – are you ready 
for this? – 5,863 EMAILS!!!! What!!?? Going back years and years. Had I deleted them? Absolutely not. They were all my Archived and Saved emails from forever. Plus loads of ‘Out of Office’ Auto Replies which, actually, did really need to go into the Bin anyway but that’s another matter. Did I want to select the whole bin load and move them back to my Inbox? Well, no, not really... So I worked through them, page by page. Took absolute ages. And then, when I did go to send an email, guess what? Gmail told me it had been deleted and sent to the Bin instead of the Sent Box because it was part of a deleted conversation... What-what???
 
Anyway, the Mystery is all solved now Huzza! After a bit of Googling I found it was down to a filter I'd set up the day before to get rid of some Spam. Somewhere along the line my own email address had been included..
 I now have NO filters. None.
Deleted the lot.
And ate Chocolate. Well, Chocolates. And some chocolate.

My trials were over, or so I thought...
However... When I got downstairs at the end of the day I found further Dastardly-Dire scenes of the Most Despicable Nature waiting for me in
the Kitchen…
