The technology in the Online/Blogging World.

I never actually thought that it would come to this. Well I always knew it was there, but I just always thought that I would somehow find enough cracks to avoid having to go through the struggle.

What is the struggle you ask? Technology. you know, computers and websites and all these other things that other people my age just simply push a few buttons and create in a flash.

When I started at University in my first year as a Law student, one of our modules was based on preparing students for the research part of the degree. We were set up into smaller groups and had sessions in a computer lab where we were walked through a few sites that would be useful to us throughout our time not only as students, but allegedly also when we would eventually become practitioners.

I breathed a sigh of relief. I made sure to pay attention and crammed three easy-to-use sites and I thought I would be sorted for the rest of my life. It’s the end of my third year now and I can say that those sites were more than enough. pheeew!

But then last year I started blogging. I created this site easily enough with the help of the structures that were already available on WordPress and I haven’t been bothered with the technical side of things ever since.

But now my Blog on the free domain has grown just as much as I had hoped it would have in a year, and so, my time on the free domain is coming to a grateful end as I am now planning on an upgrade to subscribe to the Premium account as my route to monetize my blog.

And as a result, I get to say sadly, “Here I am again”.  I have to learn new tricks on how to create the perfect site for myself and my readers. I have to learn how to add those buttons that when you click them, you automatically land on my Instagram page, or get a direct link to a relevant blog post, and eventually also add that button that will offer you, my dear readers, the opportunity to pay for any of the awesome services or products that I will create and make available for you in due course.

I’m optimistic. But right now I cannot help but give myself a great slap on the forehead for this stupid glitch in my skill set. As I laugh at myself to hide the tears inside, I’m gonna have to sit myself down for a minute or two just to ask, “WHY?” why did you watch the world growing into the online world while you were stuck being Old-school and Original? that’s so uncool and look at your restrictions now.

But it’s Okay, I’m so eager to make this blogging thing work, I’m going to dedicate – I don’t know how many hours, but all of my powers to break into this industry, brace yourselves, I’ll be bringing more of what I’ve been doing, bringing little more Psychology, Philosophy, Life Revelations, Coming of Age, and also letting you know how my new journey in Online Marketing and Marketing strategies is going and so on and so on…Peace and much Love.

  1. Congratulations upon the success of your blog! I don’t envy you the task of learning the ins and outs of “premium” but you’re probably more computer savvy than I am. There’s something to learn every day. Good luck as you take this next step!

  2. Your journey sounds so similar to mine. I too did not embrace the technical development of the world until 2 years ago when I began blogging. I comment from my free personal site but I operate from a premium domain soon to go self-hosted. Nice to meet you.
