My Update

As promised, here is my update post. I hope to see a good few people doing these - lets get ourselves and the site back up and running with regular posts. I will make more of an effort if you will?

The honest answer is there isn't much new with me. I still work in the receiving unit and I still run my own business on the side and we are setting up the other half's archery business - although we have had this on hold for a few months with the move etc and then it becomes hard to get going again and before you know it six months have passed!

We are also considering setting up our own thing making wax melts, soaps, bath bombs that type of thing. these are all things I sell anyway so why not make them ourselves and make the extra profit, cut out the middle man so to speak.

The new house is getting there, slowly but it is getting there. We just need to get a shower put in which was supposed to be the first thing we did but these things never work out as planned do they?

The bunnies are still just the bunnies, still cute, still naughty. In fact within two days of moving into the new house someone had chewed a hole in the brand new carpet!

I am not really writing these days, although I am trying to change that. I am doing my best to update my blogs and I am also setting up my own website plus we have the site for the archery business, between that and all the social media involved with my business I guess I do write, just not in the way I used to. I gave up freelancing a long time ago now, it just isn't worth it anymore and I am in the fortunate position where I don't need the hassle for very little pay. Although I may write an ebook at some point, its something I have always thought about doing. Well actually I have already written several, but they were all ghostwrites.

Tonight I need to install wordpress on the archery site - the site has been live for almost a year and I need to decide if we are staying with the current hosting service, there are a lot of things I like about them, price being one of them. There are however a few things I don't like but I think I can fix all of them with a wordpress installation, its just the thought of doing it! I do need to do it though, we need to get back up and running.

I do check in here regularly and I stop by and comment where I can but I seem to lack the inspiration to actually write anything these days. I hope to get it back.

Once you are used to installing WordPress, it's easy. I do it through CPanel on my hosting. Some use Softaculous and other just say WordPress. Using one of those apps makes it really easy (and free). Would love to see an article or articles on archery sometime!

the hosting service is offering me a free upgrade to wordpress plus and one click installation, I ended up not doing it last night as I was too tired to really focus on it but we have an event on sunday and it needs done before then for sure. Oh I know very little about archery! Aim at the middle of the target and try not to hurt yourself is about all the advice I could give!

Nice update, sounds like you got a lot going on. Like MegL says I would like to hear about the archery or check out the website if you can drop a link. Maybe I should write an update, not sure it would be that exciting though LOL.

everyone should write an update! We have tonnes going on at the moment, but I like keeping busy so it suits in a way. I have yet to finish updating the site yet but you should still be able to see the old version at I plan on finishing the update hopefully tomorrow as I think I am too tired to do it tonight now

You seem to be very busy. Sometimes I wish I had your energy level, but I don't any more. I try to write here and there but I really enjoy only one site these days and Persona Paper and I still do surveys for a few dollars here and there. But that is all the time and energy that I have. Good luck on all your endeavours and also congratulations on everything that you accomplished.

I don't even know if I have the energy as such, it's just that I get bored so easily - I always need to be doing something. even sitting watching TV is something I just cant do, I need to be maybe reading my emails at the same time or something. I have pretty much always been this way
