OMG, Completely overwhelmed


It's been a while since I was blogging on the regular.

It's been even longer since I started this blog.

Well, it seems I've neglected a bunch of stuff over the years, and it's time to fix everything.

Fun Facts 

#1. European laws dictate you need to have security imbedded into you domains through a DNS service?

- I honestly thought I had done this when I click ok.

Well here is the problem, I started this blog (and other blogs) as a free service from Blogger (google). I later went on to purchase this (and other) domains from Blogger (google). Blogger (google) purchased the domains (on my behalf) from GoDaddy. 

So now when I need to do an update, I use the Blogger interface which send me to the Google interface, which redirects me to the GoDaddy interface, which lets me make changes. Well, somewhere along this chain, I lost access. Normally I just use the auto-password and auto-login from site to site, but I lost a password, or changed it, or changed my user name or something happened. I now use safeincloud which helps tremendously (I am not sponsored by them, purchased it and use it). 

I'm stuck, I can't seem to make changes, Oh well F*it, I'll suffer the wrath of the EU.

This non-compliance has been going on for some time now, and some people have even reported to me that, no longer works in search engines, and that they can only get to my site using, of which I am truly remorseful.

I want to give blogging another chance to monetize (to earn some money, since I retired from my day job), and tie in Facebook/Instagram monetization and maybe start vlogging (we will see). Monetizing is no longer as simple as it used to be, in that there is so much tax info needed, oh and you also have to be EU compliant!


This EU compliance is going to be the end of me.

I'm currently wading through all the interfaces and re-submitting for access, trying to determine which username is associated with with which domain, which password is associated with that username, and getting them all to communicate in harmony.

My plan is to...

  1. Resolve this EU issue
  2. Possibly host this blog on my own server (not sure how to do it, so it's learning curve).
  3. Get this blog re-monetized through Blogger (google)
  4. Get this blog monetized through Facebook/Instagram
  5. Bring vlogging to this site.

If anyone has any suggestions or help, drop me a line.
