Two months with barely anything on my blog. And this time, I have a valid excuse. Every time I would go on WordPress, I would leave my laptop with frustration and bitterness. It seems fairly odd to be stressed by the inability to upload photos on your blog but honestly, I went bonkers. But here I am now, pleased to say that I’m back! All thanks to three incredibly talented women. Here’s how I solved my tech-related problem.
1. Firstly, I contacted Patricia Alix-Villa, my web-designer thinking that my new blog design was the cause of this. She immediately checked and told my mom that there wasn’t anything wrong on her end.
2. Patricia referred us to Jenn Tan, a techie trouble shooter. 24 hours later, I was able to upload photos again! However, the workload I had that day was terrible, and I had to post another time. Next thing I knew, the same problem happened again. It took some time to finally figure out the problem… my hosting provider.
3. I took Jenn’s advice of changing my host and like magic, the blog was working again. My new host is Marge Aberásturi, a visual support professional.
For those who haven’t seen it yet, this the new look of Absolutely Savvy. I hope you like my new blog design as much i do.
You’ve probably heard me mention Patricia Alix-Villa of Fancy Girl Designs once or twice. She is my web designer and the perfect person to go to if you’re thinking of of creating your own blog or re-designing your website. Notice my illustration on my header? She drew that too!
As Jenn Tan would say, for the non-techie web or program user she is your techie troubleshooter. She described me perfectly because ICT is not my forte. Jenn is extremely patient, answering even the silliest questions and putting in simple terms. Visit her site at thetechiemom.com
Lastly is Marge Aberásturi,a virtual assistant. I don’t think I can explain exactly what she does and do her justice. All I know is she is exactly who I need right now. I’ll be working with her a lot when I formally launch the Absolutely Savvy Online Store in a few weeks time (how exciting!)
As of now, I am extremely happy that the blog is back to normal. Thanks again to these three ladies and please do check them out. But I’d also like to thank my mom. She has spent lots of time emailing Patricia, Jenn and Marge, telling them what was wrong with my site while I was just there complaining all the time (whoops). I couldn’t have done it without you mom! And watch out for my next blog posts 🙂
