so what had happened was

It’s on of my favorite sayings “Life happens when you are busying making other plans”. I received an email from my web host stating that the server had detected some malicious coding and I was in detention until it was cleared up.  WHATTHEWHAT?

In this imperfect the world, I know of two certainties 1) someone does stay up all night to figure out ways to take my money and 2) if there is something good going on, someone is going to find a way to corrupt it. Now, after a couple hundred dollars and a clean up by the web host, we are good to go…again.

So now what? Well, in my eyes, I have been given another chance to get my a$$ in gear and actually do the work. I know, I said work. I think I learned a valuable lesson when the poop hit the fan recently. I feel that the devil on my shoulder was saying “Hey, you gave it a good try. It’s getting to be rough and you’re like learning stuff. It’s hard. Dontcha wanna quit?” I did think about it for like two milliseconds.

I have these plans, great plans I would say. I am looking to my future of when my body isn’t going to be able to support my 9-to-5 job and I will need to have additional sources of income to be able to support myself. This is my reality. It could be a great while until I actually get to that point, but I just want to be prepared. This means that this blog, this one right here, needs to support my lifestyle.

Why not me? I have watched three particular women in the blogsphere grow their business and become self supporting mavens. What a great group to follow after. I suddenly find myself saying I want to do what they are doing.” I have found my why (OMG! Finally!!). I’m here to help you navigate through this rough terrain of chronic illness. And dude, I could not be more excited!

I mean, there is an ocean of possibilities out there I can be writing about and showing you. I am going to be able to do research so you don’t have to, try products and give you honest opinions, and together, we are going to build ourselves up for when our illness lay us low

Are you with me? Cuz, dude, we are so going to get the chronic party started. I have ideas for posts and vlogs just pouring out of me right now. In fact, I was able to capture one before I drifted off to sleep last night and two more just writing this post.

And, I did I mention vlogs? Yep, I am incorporating a YouTube channel for another source of awesome entertainment to the stack (go big they say). Along with a new post every Tuesday, I will have a new Vlogtini (as I like to call them, mostly cuz it’s catchy!) for you as well. D’oh, I can barely contain the excitement.

Leave a comment below if you have a particular topic to be discussed here on the blog or on my vlog.

Follow me….

to YouTube!  That’s right, I am taking a big bold step into the world of vlogs! Well, not such a huge step. I have been a very slow participant on a collaboration with my BFF and her hubby over on Spoongeeks (yes, I owe a vid, I know!)

But, guys, look…I’m making my own vids on my planner obsession, err, setups.  I’m calling them Vlogtini’s…why, I have no idea. It just popped into my head and no one else seemed to be using the term so I went with it!

Below are my first two episodes! Take a look, subscribe and comment!
