For those who may not have had a chance to see the Take My Veganity website last year, let’s just say…it took me a lot of time and work to get to the point it was at prior to being lost in the ether. I worked with the help of a very good friend to get my website setup and designed back in November of 2014. The timing was probably not the best, as I was getting married that following December, along with the usual shenanigans of the holidays; throw in moving between cities, wife’s job change, recently adopting a dog, and I think its safe to say to just add a cherry on top at that point.
Nonetheless, I spent countless hours adding photos, posting blog entries, linking youtube videos, etc, and had completely forgotten that the debit card I used to pay for the website hosting, had been changed to a different bank account and debit card. So, fast forward, its now December of 2015, and the same shenanigans with holidays, being busy, and basically the renewal for the hosting doesn’t go through. I get emails about the issue, and I figure, cool I’ll take care of that right after the new year.
So I call up my website hosting company and tell them what happened w/ the card, give them the new information and we’re back in business….so I re-activate the hosting, but wait…my wordpress files and pics, and posts, and links. Gone. All Gone. I ask the company about it and they say, after a few days, all the information gets wiped. Knowing what had been lost, I couldn’t even be mad about it. I skipped anger, depression, and awkwardly went straight to acceptance, lol. It’s one of the rare times, I laughed about such an ironic and unfortunate thing instead of flip out and go berserker.
Take My Veganity website v2.0?
Well, perhaps it was a blessing in disguise, as I know now what direction I want the Take My Veganity website to take. And it is my sincere hopes that you’ll come along for the journey. It’s gonna be a slow one just like before. But, the anxiety and fear are all gone. I know who I am and it’s interesting that when you just choose to just be “you”, the following you create, you like. And if you try to be something you’re not, people know, and you end up doing things you don’t like, to try to impress people you don’t really like. Who cares to do that? Pfft, not me. Not now and not ever.
Thanks for the read. Let me know if you’ve ever had an experience like this. I know misery loves company, but I’ll help you laugh through our unfortunate experiences that we are forced to face in this life. Cheers!
