We all need support.
In this case, I needed tech support. I tried to figure it out on my own, oh how I tried, but in the end I had to ask for help. My website had been down for a week, and ignoring the problem had not made it go away. Surprise surprise.
I didn’t want to ask for help. I wanted to be clever and figure it out for myself like a big girl. It can’t be that hard, right? Ha. Was I wrong.
So I had to bite it and contact tech support.
I had spent a couple of hours this past week tinkering around in the back end of my blog trying to figure out what took the wonderful tech person on the other end of the chat less than five minutes to fix.
Do you see what I’m getting at here?
In trying to be clever and do it all myself I wasted a weeks worth of blog traffic and gave myself a few more grey hairs when I could have asked for help a week ago and saved myself the trouble.
The moral of this story is ASK FOR HELP. You’ll save yourself so much time.
It’s ok to need help. Ask for it, let others shine, and then you get the chance to be grateful, and possibly witness what looks like a miracle to your not-tech-savvy eyes.
All this to say you can now find my blog at stephanierenaud.ca as I am now a blogging big girl and have removed the ads and the “.wordpress” from my web address 🙂
Movin’ on up.
