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???

Happy Sunday Everyone

Uggs in April??!!

Posted on 21 April, 2018 at 12:24
Hi Everyone! This is the post I couldn’t publish last week due to ‘Technical Issues’ so I thought I’d post it now anyways ~ which means there’ll be two this weekend !
xx
 
Blog Post from SUNDAY 15th April…
 
So where does the time go??  It absolutely FLIES past doesn’t it? … Busy Days…
Busy Florista Ha!…
Here’s what’s been happening in a Nutshell for a Quick catch up for now…
 
So… Our Lillycat is back and Happy and Healthy and Getting Better by the day :)
 
 
Our James is back and Ditto – Ditto – Ditto 
My washing machine and washing-drying-piles are bearing evidence of that and Blossoming much better than the Garden’s been of late ha!
 
Looks like another CSI to me… the return of the Deepest Darkest case from the Orient Aaaarghhhh!
 
In amongst all this I had a Fabulous day teaching at the West Suffolk College and look at what my Super students did! They really got a hold of the Hand-Tied technique SO well – I was really pleased (Read Chuffed – Delighted – Impressed) that they all had such a super day and did so very well xx
 
 
Oh and yesterday I had a super-dooper consult over at Alpheton Barn for a wedding I’m doing there in August and just Look at the Fabulous display of Daffodils there were along the lane leading to that venue – Just totally Gorgeous! Spring is here now surely…
 
 
Well…maybe…
As a cold-fingered-and-footed-most-of-the-year Florista I have to tell you that I’m still in the Uggs…
And I want Ugg Mitts too please…
I also hear they do Ugg Slippers!
 
 
And....Guess what? …
I'm putting these extra Ugg items are on my July-Wedding-Anniversary-What-I-Would-REALLY-Like-Gift-List ha! 
All ready for when the weather turns chilly again in…..September? October?...
Anyways – Ugg Slipper Consults could be an Autumn theme here at the Studios…
 xx
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!!

My spouse and i got now relieved Albert managed to deal with his basic research from your ideas he came across while using the weblog.

Needed to create you one very little note to thank you so much again considering the pleasing ideas you have shared on this page. It has been so unbelievably open-handed of you to deliver easily precisely what a number of us might have offered for sale as an e book to generate some dough for themselves, especially seeing that you might have done it in case you decided. The secrets as well worked to become a good way to understand that the rest have similar keenness just like mine to learn a lot more on the subject of this matter. I'm certain there are several more fun periods in the future for individuals that start reading your blog post.

I must show appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this particular setting. Because of exploring throughout the online world and coming across methods which were not powerful, I believed my life was done. Living without the presence of answers to the difficulties you've sorted out all through this short article is a critical case, and the kind that would have negatively affected my career if I had not noticed your web page. The training and kindness in taking care of all things was precious. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. I can also at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this reliable and results-oriented guide. I will not hesitate to recommend your site to anybody who should have guidance on this area.
