Glutton For Punishment

What a weird expression…what does that even mean? I’m pretty sure it applies to my current situation though….

So I decided to start an essential oil blog…like a bonafide wordpress.org site. How much do I know about building a website? A big fat zero would be the correct answer. If I want to build a team with doTERRA it certainly won’t be in this town so I expanded my reach. Well, I’m trying at the moment. It certainly doesn’t look professional at day two. I started with a simple introduction and bath salt recipe and I haven’t even mentioned doTERRA yet.

I have muddled my way through this blog for the last six years and I mostly have the hang of it?  What was I thinking trying to start a real website? Oh well…I’m in it for at least a year, hopefully I will figure it out by then.

My brother says I need to start a Youtube page as well. I haven’t made it that far yet. I did start an Instagram page today…I’m so old that I had to have the girl show me how to toggle between accounts. So now I have my craft business and my oil blog up and running on Instagram and I can see them both. I used to have an Instagram for this blog but I noticed I was being followed by a family member so I deleted some pictures and haven’t looked at it since.

I’m not mentioning the new blog to many people as of yet. It’s not a secret because I will reveal no secrets or be as open as I am here. It’s just not ready. My first post had a Star Trek reference in the title and when I woke up this morning I realized it was more than that. Especially if I look at my business as an enterprise. Yes, I realize that only some of you got that last reference. I am proud of the name I came up with too. I will share it with you when it is more organized.

What else is new? Today I found out that my boss from my old waitress job passed away Sunday. He fought a good fight. He lived almost a year after being diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer, I thought that was long for stage 4. I’m not a doctor so what do I know?  Calling hours are after work on Thursday. I am meeting one of the girls I used to work with at the funeral home.

Thursday is turning into a busy day for me. My haircut was moved to Thursday after work, then the calling hours, and then Mountain Woman and her friend are crashing on my couch/floor Thursday night. I’m sure I will go to bed late even though I still have to be at work on time Friday morning. It will be worth losing the sleep to spend time with a friend.

Tomorrow I am hanging out with PT. I have been looking forward to it since last week. It’s always an adventure when we are together….maybe I will have a fun story for you tomorrow…Zia

About dragonflyzia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
