How to succeed online if you are still a Dinosaur? I don’t know.
I DON’T KNOW.
If you visited my page the last 2-3 days, you’ve noticed the changes I’ve made. Also I have placed the adds on the posts. And of course I made a smart-ass choice to go with the Google AdSense. I spent almost 3 hours by fixing-and-tricking AdSenses, I’ve jumped between “plans” back & forth. After all those long hours, I have finally arrived on the Earth with a feeling of frustration, because I’ve got zero people visiting my page.
It was like a Sahara, but only worse. Totally GONE GIRL – page.
I went to The Reader and I’ve followed, commented (as I usually do), but nothing happened…I was The Invisible Blog. In the middle of the day I felt like I’m totally alone on wordpress. Ouch! Of course I could communicate with a people who already followed me, but thats all.
Let’s move to the next problem: it took ages for my page (with GAdsense and kinda “Optimisation-program”) to download on web-browser. I even went to check how quickly my downloading-speed is and it was 2,93 sec (in Swedish area of the world). But before Adsense-adds I had no such issues. At all.
Enough? Nooooo. My published posts suddenly disappeared on the WordPress Phone App. I’m never writing from the app (because its crushing at least 5-10 times a day). But I’m using it for commenting and checking of my published/or scheduled posts.
To make long story short, I’ve contacted WordPress support and found out that if I want to be seen on the “Reader” again – I have to switch to my older plan. Of course I did. But I’ve lost one post and most of the ‘featured pictures” on my page. I’m trying to fix it now, still 15 posts are hanging with a default photos. So if you’ll suddenly arrive on my page and do not recognise the pics – KNOW, thats a GONE RAY trying to fix his mistakes.
I want only the best for this blog. It’s very important for me and I really like all the people around. I know they feel a bit unhappy when I’m posting a “motivational” bullshit, but I have to tell you – I like different styles and genres.
Also one more detail – the hobbies. I’m always writing that one of my hobbies is DRAWING or PAINTING. And yes, it is true.
But it is not my passion.
I mean if I see a pen and the notebook – I won’t run to draw the images. And if you’ll ask me how many of my drawings I have at home – I’m going to tell you honestly: 2.
I do not draw in my spare/free time. Maybe 2-3-max 4 times a year.
Why I’m telling you that? Because a lot of people think if I’m saying “painting” – I have to hide a huge collection of my drawings somewhere in the closet. Nope. There’s none. I prefer to read. Or to write.
Oh, one more thing. There is no conveyor belt in this story. (daily-prompt word)
Have a great day ahead!
