I quit my job after 2 decades!

It’s about 3:30 am. I’ve been sitting at my desk trying to get this blog ready for days and days. I didn’t even see July roll in!

I shared a video… I think a week ago titled “I quit my job after 2 decades, what now?” I’ll share that in this post rather than typing it all out but, since I announced that I quit, I sort of felt a little bit of a panic because I also mentioned that I was moving to WordPress from Blogger! It liked crept up on me that “migrating” over meant somehow I had to figure out how to “pack up” 13 years worth of content…!!!! LIKE, Wait! Whoa!!

Now, I didn’t just open up an account out of the blue. Not only have I been thinking about it since I came back to Youtube and social media last year but I started to take a couple of courses online from influencers. Yeah, influencers that make 6 and 7 figures a year blogging and teaching what they did to succeed. This last course, I’m not done with it yet, but one of the first steps she talks about is “How to establish your branding” and how do you do that? by starting a blog! Well, it seemed like the right time. I was coming back to social media but I was already thinking about it sooo, I thought, “Sure, why not”!

Come July 1st and I started her course (and paid for it). I can’t tell you how many times i tried to get themes and changed them thinking I was creating something pretty and then….I somehow lost the theme and my blog got completely distorted. Now this happened earlier today, July 7th. So I panicked again trying to salvage the little bit I could fix and so here I am, I finally restored my pages and a new theme and I feel about 60% better!

Why though? Why 60%? Well again, I migrated all of my content but the plug-in I used for the redirection of my blog to WordPress broke and now I have no way of doing it the fast way. So, that means I need to go into each post, revert it to a draft, save it again so that the URL slug is from WordPress, then take the new URL to youtube, tuck it there (replacing the URL from Blogger) and maybe do the same thing on FB and Instagram!! I’m……..

LOL….I’m falling asleep as I type because now it’s 4:20am and I re-wrote some of these sentences about 6 times now!!

Needless to say, I’ll be doing the one on one attention to each post gradually for maybe a couple of years back. There’s no way I’ll be heading into anything from before I left social media.

OMG, I’m exhausted but I’m sure glad I’m sorta done. For today anyway!

Have a great weekend guys!
