It’s here, finally! Yeah!!! The blog has a fresh, bright, new look. Where have I been, you say? That is a good question, which deserves an answer. I will be happy to give you an answer …in a minute. First, lets all just take a moment to celebrate this huge milestone. It has taken lots of research, learning, experimenting, and let’s face it, a long time to get to this point. Now that we are all here, I am so thankful that I get to be a part of this blog. So…cheers to a new beginning!
Now, to answer your question. Honestly, I have been beyond overwhelmed with all that goes into getting the new look. I had dove right into getting things looking amazing, that is until the one day I got stuck. Ugh, stuck was right, I just did not know how to fix the problem I had run into. I spent lots of time researching, and time trying hard to figure the problem out, but I just was not understanding how to fix the problem. All this techy stuff was really above my head. Before this, I thought I could handle it, given my background in computers. I thought I could update the blog design, and not have to work so hard at it. I was determined to not release the new look until it was perfect. The problem was that I couldn’t seem to get it there. I let that feeling of defeat overtake me, which ultimately brought the blog to a screeching halt.
Each day that went by without me working on the blog brought about guilt for letting this blog fall apart. The time away showed me how much I really care about this blog and how much I really want this to work. Looking back I should have realized that this project, this blog, is going to grow, expand and improve as time goes on. I can not expect it to be perfect right away, and honestly will never be perfect. I needed to see that as I learn and grow, so will this blog. Once I got that fact wrapped around my head, I took a deep breath and got started again. Granted it was several months later, but well, at least I got back on the horse, so to speak.
Does the blog look perfect now? No, but it sure does look a lot nicer. Did I get the problem I was dealing with figured out? Honestly, no, however I found a work around and things still came out well. I am so thankful to be moving forward, again. It is such a relief that this day has finally come about, even if it did take much longer than I expected. I hope that you are as excited about this new beginning, and our future here at Faithfilled Chaos as I am. Please take a minute and sign up for our updates in the box below. Cheers!
