Wordpress hassle

I spent all day sorting out my Wordpress site. 

It's a long story, but rather than being placed on the naughty step for something that I was alleged to have done, my hosting company, in their wisdom, decided to pull the plug.

Anyhow, I am now back in business, but I have a lot of work to do over the coming weeks to sort out:
  1. my hosting
  2. my Wordpress and Tumblr themes
  3. my branding
  4. my messaging
  5. domain names
  6. content
  7. my offering
Perhaps two years ago I would have been daunted by the process, but I am blessed to have found a wonderfully talented person who understands my mission better than anyone else I have ever worked with; I have no doubt I will resolve all the issues.

I am impatient, not least because of the passing of years; but, in a way, I'm glad to have come on a rather circuitous journey with my blogging and brand identity. It may sound trite but absent the failures - and there have been plenty - I wouldn't have a clue where to take my mission.

I had hoped to write more in LiveJournal but I have rather let it slip mainly because I have not felt able to share some of my daily musings. I promise I will write more on the platform.

This week will once again see me leave home to work away. For the moment, it fits the bill but I don't see it as a long term proposition, not least because my first love is writing and poetry.

It would be great to establish some further connections on LiveJournal and if you are active or have an account please do let me know and we can, perhaps, make the connection.

I'm in the middle of doing very similar work for mine and my wife's company's website. The old one is www.clareassoc.co.uk, but since the range of services being offered by the company is now significantly increased with me working full-time, it's time for a completely new company website. We're hoping it will be live by next week.

If it wasn't for your "wonderfully talented person", I'd have tried to sell you a managed hosting package!
