So, first of all-I just have to tell you that WordPress and I are in a
silentfight. YUP, you read that right: I’m fighting with my website provider/host (or whatever you would like to call it) You may have noticed lately that I will have a post go out, only to disappear immediately. Or maybe it appears in your reader and then you can’t comment on it. Posts that have been scheduled are not going out when they are scheduled and it is making me crazy. And the thing is, I KNOW I’m doing it right and not hitting the “Publish Immediately” button unless I want to “publish immediately” . SO ANNOYING.
I know a lot of you out there are self-hosted, and I’ve been thinking about going this route, but I’m not quite there yet. I once told myself that once I got a certain number of followers-then I would do it, and I’m at that level but still don’t know if I’m ready to take the plunge. So to all of you self-hosters out there:
– What made you take the leap from using a host like WordPress or Blogspot?
-Did you have crazy hiccups when you switched (I have read others’ horror stories)
-What’s the monthly average I should expect to spend on costs for my site?
I thank you in advance for your help/advice!!!
And now for some random questions& randomness….
–Lately, I’ve been doing hair research and listening to other women around me. There is a lot of debate about how often hair is washed. Um yeah..once again, I’m asking you another weird question... It’s actually talked about all the time and it’s only once in a while that,I’m the one bringing it up,but whatev. I work with some ladies who have the most amazing thick/glossy hair and they only wash it once a week, and there are a few others who only wash it once a month. When I first heard that I told them they were gross-I wash my hair everyday!. They were all talking about natural oils and how it made their hair thicker/stronger/longer and blablabla….. So, last week, I decided to do a little test… I washed my hair on a sunday (post run) and then not again until late Tuesday night (I took Monday off from running& ran Tuesday night). I have to tell you..my hair felt extremely healthy. And the not washing it everyday not only was easier, I felt my hair getting stronger. Since then, I’ve been keeping up this regiment of not washing my hair on days that I don’t run.
If you follow HRG at all–you know that she is a runner and doesn’t wash her hair everyday. ( again, it’s weird, I know) So my question for all this hair talk is this: to my female (or long haired males!)runner friends:
-do you wash your hair every day?
-Do you ever skip a day of washing it when you’ve also gone for a run?
-if you don’t wash it every single day, do you use dry shampoo?
These are a lot of questions I’m throwing at ya’ll today..HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
-Monday was 50 in my neck of the woods, so after checking to make sure it was cleared, I hit the track immediately after getting home. It was partially dark when I got there, and fully dark by the time I left. I’m hoping that it continues to be plowed out all winter long!!! I was a little dissappointed in my repeat times, but after an exhausting weekend of running, and also two races last week…I reevaluated and realized they weren’t that bad.
-I saw this on my friend Sandy’s Facebook…and YES SANDY… These ARE actually the most amazing Christmas lights!!
HAPPY FRIDAY!! thank you for indulging me with my 84,000 questions today. ☺️
