Because Life Happens

Seeking Help With my Blogsite

Seeking help with my blog site has definitely been a chore for me.  This experience is one that I will definitely never forget or want to go thru ever again.  This is for those that have yet to walk in my shoes for this phase of your project.

I bought this theme from Mojo called the Newlyn Feminine Theme and I have had nothing but um – pleasurable moments with my sites appearance.

My vision is one that I cannot seem to bring to life.  The thought of colorful and welcoming is what I see and yet not what I see.

When you hear computer dummy just think of me and you will be right.

Have you used the sight Fiverr to help with your issues?  I tried to use them and a tech contacted me to see what I wanted done and then sent me a message saying he could not help me.

Why?  Because basically the theme I have is boring and it seems as though it is unsupported by the company who provided the theme.  Of course there was an offer on the table to make me a new theme. $$$

I have been ripped off by something I thought was pretty.  Can you say WoodenNickel Nightmare.

As much as I hate to admit it and as much as it pains me; it seems like I will have to break down and spend more.

Success and business do not come cheap.

During this start up period (almost a year now) for me there is a lot of learning going on.  All that can be done now is hope that all is retained for future use.

As I am not one who is afraid to ask for help I do however have to choose where help is received from.  Not everyone is out to help you with your goals and dreams.

When it comes to this business I suggest you always do your research and look to see what the work of the helper you choose looks like.

Being lucky enough to be a part of a few blog support groups, I tend to notice those that offer help to others in need and then those that suggest where to find help.

Which is how I paid attention to a fellow support group member.  ♦

Trying to better myself and knowledge for this “business”, I took some peaks at the pages and blogs of those that were willing to help others and asked one to help me with my blog look.

After private messaging for a few days, we connected thru TeamViewer and the advice I received was well worth it.

Don’t get me wrong, there will be some money to exchange hands but for the work that will be performed the quoted price is much more attractive than what I have been quoted before.

If you read my post YOU…….. then you will notice that I am in it to win it.

The reason for these type of posts are to let others know that they are not the only ones frustrated with the process.

Don’t be afraid to use this process as a blog post and let it all out.

You never know how or what the next person is going thru.  You never know what peace a mind or support a post like this will offer the next person.

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.
