Day 8: Saving Waking Beauty, Spilled Coffee, and Domain Transfers

Today was a little bit of a rough day emotionally and I was thinking that my biggest celebration was most likely going to be dumping half a cup of coffee out that I really wanted, but knew it would make my stomach hurt and possibly make my cramps worse. Ok, so although this is a smaller scale win, the purpose of this “adventure” is to celebrate all things big and small. And quite frankly, considering my menacing coffee addition, that was pretty painful for me. You know the saying “don’t cry over spilled milk?” Let’s just say that I have cried plenty over spilled coffee (especially when it’s in my car).
The other win that I feel super proud of is taking on the tech world and winning. Html scares me, as does most of the world of websites, domains, name servers and so many other terms I wish I could pay someone to deal with. But right now, it’s just not in the budget. I’ve had to learn on my own, and wow has it been a HUGE learning curve!
Anyway, I managed  screwed up this very blog by transferring the domain to host that contains my business sites.  All I was trying to do was streamline and keep all of my domains in one place. However, what I was completely naive to was the fact that transferring the data was a whole other animal, and very quickly realized that I could no longer pull up the website.
Normally this wouldn’t have been such a big deal, but I truly wanted to continue my commitment to blog every win for these three weeks, and the hosting company said it would cost $150 to fix (definitely not in the budget). A long drawn-out techie battle ensued over several hours, causing much frustration and angst. However, after several online chats and a few sleuthing moves, I was able to resurrect my little baby and it didn’t cost a dime! I figured it out on my own. For me, this is a huge win and accomplishment. Even if no one is reading this, I made a 21 day commitment and I’ll be damned if it something like transferring a domain is what derails me!
With love,
P.S. I’m also celebrating getting this written now and not as I’m dozing off to sleep!
