Blogging

In my last post I mentioned that I moved my blog to my own domain with paid hosting on a different platform. I have moved from Blogger which was free and very user friendly to WordPress.org which is free except you have to find your own host which is not free. I also decided to get my own dot com since it was only around $10 and the name was available so I snatched it up.


I still have some tweaking to do on my old posts. I have read till my eyes were burning and permanently wide open. It has taken me 5 days and counting to get it to look the way I want it. So, I had a lot of reading, tweaking, and figuring things out to do. And I am not done. SEO anyone? I am confused beyond measure.

I recently joined a Facebook Group of very resourceful entrepreneurs who have helped me tremendously to set up my site. I even found my host for this site from that group, Stone Alley  4 WP, who has went above and beyond the call of duty helping me tweak this to my liking. Thank You!! She is very affordable also which I appreciate. And all these ladies have stepped right in and offered me advice and help as soon as I posted. Amazing!


Why the switch? I wanted better exposure, a more professional look, and I wanted to expand my blog into a home based business. Details are still being worked out for that. Actually, I have 2 ideas for a business. I am working on them both. I will do this. I can do this.

Recent events have led me to act on these 2 ideas that I’ve had for years now. And when I do go back to work, I plan on continuing on with my own business so that I am never in this situation again.

Has anyone else started their own business? Would you like to share your experience briefly or give advice? Feel free to do so in the comment form by clicking the post title. (Yes, I’m still trying to figure that one out).

Expansion

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.


That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
