And by that I mean these web domains because everything is getting out of hand. I come on my page and I am just like, “this is so boring, it is so bland and there is so much I need to clean up on here…”. I do research for other blogs out there that would be popping and I get to nothing. Almost everything that I came across was pretty much a dish of repetitiveness and I really dislike that. There were some mommy blogs that I came across that had content similar to mine, meaning they were making post to in some way, “interact” with their viewers which is what I am working towards doing. I am very interested in putting out content that will bring in more viewers and interactive people but I am not for selling my attention to Hollywood to do it. I made it clear that I didn’t want to be a celebrity blog, though I gave my opinion on many things concerning celebrities. I made it clear that I didn’t want to be a advice blog, though this kind of is but in a way that I am doing my best to tell a story rather than do, “advice on: boys, love, family, make-up…etc”. And finally, I made it clear to myself that I just wanted to be free and not worry about getting 415+ comments on my posts, 1,515,529 likes on Facebook and 2,562,682 or 2.5m followers on InstaGram. I sadly, lost that passion somewhere along the way. I started deleting all of my social networks and the ones that I did have, I was super quiet on them so it was like I was shy and quiet in person as well as on my social media. I got annoyed and just went through and deleted all of them…and now I am starting over again. Why? I’m doing it for VINE…just kidding I am doing it for my business. I just can’t stop thinking about the many possibilities that I can gain from putting in work towards this idea. I think I have been putting this opportunity off for way too long and now that things are changing up in my personal life, I can see where God is making arrangements for me to do so again. I am determined this time not to fail God and not to fail myself. If He gave me this talent, not using it is a sign of ungratefulness I wouldn’t want to hurt God like that. I mentioned a second job, maybe this could be it and then I could make plans for school again. I have been receiving some pretty harsh heartbreaks over the past few days and even though my mind keeps playing them back for me I just keep telling myself that, “it wasn’t mine if I couldn’t get it” and “God Can’t Fail”. No, things haven’t been working out in the best way for me but I am still here and I thank God for the blessing of another chance at life. I am going to be making changes to all tree of my main sites and the others respectively. Though this site came first, it isn’t a business like the other three are considered and the last three are family businesses. So. With that said, don’t wish me luck but pray for me. PEACE.
Yes, I am finally giving in and I am going to soon and VERY soon purchase me a [LEGAL] copy of Adobe Creative Suite. There is a one year trial that you can try and I hope to pieces that it doesn’t blow the small computer that I have now! I just couldn’t take it anymore, meaning with this plain and simple website design and I just want to try my luck. I really want to see if I can come up with something that is more me. I haven’t been able to find a simple layout that was cute and that I felt could handle my word heavy posts. I am going to be sketching out some designs soon as I get a good enough break. I really am hyped about doing this and I really hope that I can come up with my mom’s site as well. She’s been waiting so patiently and I have been promising a completed website but with the lack of resources, money to pay someone else to do it, cockiness if someone else got around to doing it and lack of confidence in [AND FEAR OF] my own skills I have just been putting it off. Yeah I know. But I am, HAVE, been thinking of all types of things that I could possibly do with the program and PRAY that I can get around to getting it and playing around with it soon. Wish my luck and I will let you know what is going on!
What? What do you mean bandwidth exceeded!? I am barely on my site anymore and that was because I have been working on something else…which is still not finished! I hate this layout, I hate the lost in interest and I hate the fact that I can never seem to come up with a design that just screams…me. I am guessing all the spam bots caused my bandwidth to go sour, that I do use a lot of images. I am not sure what would happened if I linked them on my own site…I sense red flags and a danger zone by doing that but! What else could I use to post graphics?! No wonder so many people used to complain about this happening and now I can finally see why. I am just a little shocked though. I can track traffic but I was always under the impression that bandwidth excellment (wait ex-cell-ment is not a word…okay) was due to people hot linking your images. I’ll do some investigating later but for now I am in the process of trying to solve this bandwidth issue. Hmm. The site may be down for some days to come but I am going to hope and PRAY that it won’t be for long. I haven’t forgotten about you, just been busy thinking about you…if that makes sense?! Ugh!!! Bye now. -___-
Oh snap! I really forgot about that! I just now remembered that I had my site closed down for maintenance. Now whatever the real reason I closed my site, I can’t remember right now. I really wanted to work on another layout for my site but I don’t have any working programs like that on my mother’s laptop. My computer is at my Grandmother’s and I have a desktop system. I can’t pack that thing everywhere with me so yeah. I am going to see if I can sketch up something neat for my site and then I will hopefully be able to add a designing program on her computer soon. Through InstaGram, I was lucky enough to have someone tell me about how I could subscribe to Adobe Creative Suite and I would be able to use the program! That’s awesome! Only thing is this, I was looking into it and I would have to pay like $49.95…EVERY MONTH. By a couple of months if I pay like that, I would have had the money to pay for the whole program and I don’t like that logic very much.
I know that Amazon has discounted Adobe Creative Suite programs for students and teachers but I just don’t have that $400 plus right now. That and some of them have real bad reviews. I was scammed once but I got a program but it wasn’t the whole deal. I wasted $100 on a program and that was only my fault for not seeing if it was everything or just one program. I don’t want to do that again. I hope I can find a better way to pay for using Adobe Creative Suite and a legal way too. Everybody want to make a dollar these days *coughs Sallie Mae* and no one cares about the person anymore. But then again, were we really cared about in the first place? Probably not. I am not giving up because I really want that program! I got so many things I would like to start doing but I truly don’t think I want to make a business out of designing. I wrote about that reason a long time again but yeah. That’s all for now though, see you later.
I know that I took a well needed break from the Internet and blogging but I really want to get back into designing and blogging again. I know that I often make these posts about going and coming but this time I am determined to STAY. I am not sure how I can make Simply Atte better and more interesting than it is now. I don’t want to become a celebrity blog site because there are millions of those already. I don’t need to spend time writing about fashion and such even though I do like fashion :) I really want to get into blogging on the news and things that I would like to talk about will include stories from Louisiana and other states. I don’t want my site to become a news site either because I still want to Simply Atte to be well, simply Atte. I want my site to attract more viewers but also more readers and commenters. I hope that the planned changes that I am trying to make to this site will for once go through and that I can increase my blog’s viewer/commenter rate. Oh yeah just one more thing before I go, I thought about become a full tutorial site but then I was like that’s not what I want this blog to be. I am going to start incorporating more of my LIFE into my blog and posting more photos and things as I go. I need to spruce up this place and I hope that when I do this finally REVAMP, that it will go forward instead of backward. Until then, because I will be back, enjoy this cute GIF of Cookie Monster!
