May 14 Day 14
So… If you are following me on social media, you have probably noticed that I didn’t post this on 5/14 or even anywhere kind of close. In fact, I’m estimating that I will probably post this the night of 5/15 along with whatever goes on 5/15. I don’t know if that is the case. That’s just what I’m going to guess.
After the picture brouhaha from 5/13, I compared the services and costs of the host of kareempowell.com to the one I was purchasing for another website. Huge difference. Incredibly huge difference. Granted, there was a cost difference, but even upgrading to the top tier package of this site’s host didn’t provide the storage of my other website’s host. And it would cost more. I just decided that I would transfer it.
This isn’t to say my (now) previous host gave me bad service. It was great for what I needed at the time I purchased the service back in (I think) 2007, but it certainly was not meeting my needs these days. I’m a little sad because that was a great service being offered through an organization I believe in and still retain membership. The guy who spearheaded it and other initiatives – and may I add, made sure I had what I needed and called me to specifically tell me what I needed to do – has constantly been one of my favorite people in the organization. If that guy told me to try a shrimp eggroll, I’d do it… and I’m allergic to shrimp!
Okay. I respect him, but no I wouldn’t. I mean… Have you seen the cost of EpiPens? I really don’t want to get a tracheotomy either. The Good Lord knows the line of people waiting to stab me in the throat probably goes clear out of town.
So… To my friend PS: YOU’RE A F***ING ROCK STAR!!! THANK YOU!!! Everybody else better get with the times.
Also sending another shoutout to Gorzek who informed my website-ignorant ass that yes, I can store more than one website on a host account. Yes, I realize some of you are staring in disbelief, but I promise you: this wasn’t covered when I was in school. Shoot… I was in my third year of college before I even had my first email address. You young’uns don’t know! Okay… Being the oldy-moldy, I’m the one who doesn’t know.
Of course, actually carrying out the transfer and backing up – added onto my many previous experiences of destroying my website – has me a bit tied up in anxious knots, but hopefully I’ll have the job done right. I am somewhat worried about screwing up my GSuite. I might be fine. Don’t know.
This experience has inspired me to do something else that I probably won’t mention here. My father would f***ing love it. That’s all I’ll say.
Wishing you all the best,
