Fool proof, my @$$

When I decided to make this site I had noooo idea what I was in for. I knew it would not be simple, but I had no idea I would cry! Honestly, I don’t do well with electronics. I can read the instructions 5 times and still have no clue what I am doing. It’ like my brain shuts off and blocks anything technical. I have the same problem with numbers! I do not comprehend numbers whatsoever. If I ask how far something is and you say 9 yards, my brain literally goes blank. I need you to give me something I know the size of to measure by. If you say, “It’s the size of that book.” I will understand you. I’m not stupid, and as I write this, I’m thinking about how dumb this will sound to so many of you. There was this quote on Facebook a few months ago that described me perfectly: “If you have 5 apples and 3 ice cubes, how many pancakes fit on the roof? None because aliens don’t wear hats.” The first time I read that, I laughed so hard I was snorting, I had tears in my eyes, and I could not read it to James because every time I started I would explode in a fit of giggles. It’s funny because that IS math to me!!!

So here I am attempting to buy this site, and I swear, nothing was working. It took me 2 days just to get passed the initial screen! I actually ended up paying twice! Then I finally get to the menu and I can’t do anything. It’s telling me my site does not exist, but I can log in and they saved my payment info. OHKAY… what? I clicked every button, I could not find a phone number, I sent 2 emails, I watched How-To videos, I yelled at my laptop… I cried! I was so frustrated!

Then my phone rang. Normally I don’t answer unknown numbers, but I was so irritated and needed a break. You will never believe who it was. The Word Press people (magic!) calling to see why I had ordered the site twice!!! I was so happy to hear this ladies voice! I thanked her 20 times and she connected me to this awesome guy who fixed my problems! I was so relieved! I know it’s not healthy to need to be rescued, and I really try to do things myself, but this technical stuff just does not work for me.

It took me another few hours, and a day to get it to look like what it look like today. I don’t have the patience to do anything else to this site. All I wanted was a place of my own for my blog!

    1. I’m not “too” healthy for anything… but for a long time I let other people do things for me, and i am trying to get out of that habit because I am capable, not of everything, but at least to give it my best try. I will probably hire someone to help me with the rest, and maybe even to show me how.
