“Not a different story, just a new chapter.”— Amy Rosanova.
Welcome to the worldwide web, my new creation, my new website.
This is new and different. It’s also nerve-wracking and exciting. Nerveciting.
I’ve been making creative content for a long time now. YouTube since 2012. Blogging since 2013. But I’ve been writing and producing since before even then.
It really is different when you create your own website, pay for hosting and a domain, and build it up almost from scratch.
The whole layout and format systems are so different from a simple free service (and there are a bunch of hurdles to tackle). It can be overwhelming. I’m glad that I have a lot of tech experience.
(It’s also a lot of responsibility to have to take care for, because you’re not just maintaining a single outlet anymore. There’s so much more that goes on behind the scenes when you actually create a website versus just creating an account with a free website.)
What drives you to do this might also face you when you get there. Fear for security. Whether you have a free service or your own website, there can still be that fear. There are pros and cons to both.
Whatever you do, always take the necessary precautions to protect your work. Ultimately, your security depends on you, your choices, and the lengths of which you will go to – to ensure that you and your work are secure. Create backups of everything (for storage purposes, save them on USBs or SD cards if you have to).
I’ve decided not to import all of my posts from my other weblog onto this website. Some of them, I do plan to re-post / re-furbish for use on this website. So, in a sense, it’s like I’m starting over. Which is both scary and freeing at the same time.
But it’s not a different story or a separate series. It’s just a new page, a new chapter.
I look forward to seeing where this goes, where I can take this, and, of course, to success. I intend and expect for success in whatever way that I resonate with. I see both expression and recognition as forms of success.
Be happy with what you create, create what you’re passionate about. The rest will follow. Success is a subjective thing; It’s abstract. If you feel successful, then you are.
Please stay tuned for more content like this – on this website, YouTube, SoundCloud, and general social media.
Thank you so much. May God bless you.
