A couple weeks ago, Google told me it was about time to renew my domain (yes, I got my domain name through Blogger back in 2013. That's all it is, just the address - and they don't even offer that service anymore) and that I needed to update my credit card on file. I spent a good hour trying to figure out how - I mean, eveything says "Just sign into your Google Admin console, duh!" But when you try to, it says "You need a Google for Work account to login." After telling Google to fight me, I finally found a place to update my card. Yay!
Then this morning I get an email saying my payment method failed, and I should update my card info. What the fuck ever, I muttered. That's when I started thinking seriously about it. Maybe I should just let ChelseaBeeswax.com die. I've struggled with finding my place and my voice with it ever since I decided to go mainstream bloggy in 2013. I never really made a big effort to make it a big thing, because I never really knew what I wanted my blog to be about - which has always left me unable to get seriously enthusiastic and motivated to blog here.
I think it's time for a change.
I do enjoy blogging, I just want to find my purpose. I want to start over. I think it would be a good time for me take a step back and evaluate what I would be passionate blogging about. Something that has me excited thinking all day, making notes, planning posts. Maybe it doesn't exist for me - maybe blogging just isn't my niche - but I want to explore more possibilities.
I always do love the planning part of things more, anyway. You know in video games, how you spend the first 20 minutes just getting your gear in order, selling junk you don't need, making bag space, spending talent points, and making sure your murdering outfit is on point? Yeah, that's my favorite part. I usually just do that and log off.
So, thanks Google for being so annoying? I guess. I got some planning to do.
Thanks for everything. Hope to see you again soon!
