Setbacks are a serious pain in the you-know-what. You have them, I have them (way more often than I'd like) and they leave us feeling hopeless sometimes. I've been dealing with my own variety of setbacks seemingly one right after another and I am definitely feeling glum about it. But this time of year has a way of making you want to set goals and make changes. The first setback that I am still dealing with, it here on my blog. As most of you know, my blog was formerly name Evon Von. Some sort of error happened with my google account and my blog and my domain name (that I paid for, mind you) was lost. I didn't get any help from google or blogger. I seriously considered leaving Blogger for Wordpress at one point. Rather than having another dramatic issue I chose to stay with Blogger one last time. Due to the issue I had, ALL of the photos that were uploaded in blog posts are gone. All of them. I don't normally hold on to the photos I post on my blog unless they are special in some way. It has been such a pain to figure out. I have made a total of 267 blog posts, and 99% of those posts are now missing pictures. There's no way I'm going back through them all and likewise I'm not going to delete all of them either. I'm in a bit of a spot because I don't exactly know what to do. I have a lot of goals for 2017 for my blog. Many of them being goals that I didn't meet in 2016, but I need to have things hashed out before I let you guys in on what I've been working on.
I've been trying to figure out a way to get back to where I was earlier in the year. Posting regularly, all of my content actually showing up, and chugging along happy with my blog. I realized that even though my blog is experiencing a slump, issue, set back; its not the end. I've made great strides with my blog and I can't/won't give up. I just have to take it one thing at a time. Sometimes that all you can do when you're having a setback of any kind. One thing at a time, one foot in front of the other. Don't let yourself get overwhelmed with the overall picture. Don't get me wrong, keep the bigger picture your ultimate goal, but a small goal is much easier on the mind. Small victories help you to get to bigger ones. That's where I am. I'm taking baby steps not only with my blog, but in my personal life. But those issues are for an entirely different time and place. But they will be discussed before the new year! For now, I hope that you will continue to stick with me through this time of rebuilding. 2017 will be my year, I'm already declaring it. No matter if there are any more setbacks, things will continue to move forward. Stay along the ride with me people, we are going up from here!!!
lotsa love to ya!
