Tl;dr – I messed this website up when I didn’t renew it, so I’m going back to blogging at my old space – stillamberiam.blogspot.com. Want the rambling background about what I did and why I moved onto this site? Then keep reading!
So somehow between having a paid site, not doing a backup correctly, and then letting the paid site lapse, I’ve lost a ton of content here. I’m a little salty since it includes letters to Charlotte, among other things. I’m working on figuring out how to restore that content, but this made me realize that I want to go back to my blogging roots.
I initially started blogging on a site called ambercanread.blogspot.com. Back in 2014 when I had this idea that I was going to become a full-time blogger, I moved everything here with the goal of someday having a paid website. That was a great goal at the time, and I even managed to get one whole sponsored post during the time I paid for a blog. The payment from that post wasn’t even enough to cover my hosting fees for that year…
Now, because I’m a course and resource fanatic, I have a ton of courses and resources that relate to making money by blogging, but I haven’t taken the time to go through them. This year has taught me a lot about what I do and don’t want to do with my life, and right now, shockingly, being a world-famous blogger is not on my list. I enjoy posting things like letters to my child, seasonal bucket lists, linkups, etc. I don’t need to be on the first page of Google’s search results; I just want to get thoughts on paper (er, on screen) and entertain anyone who wanders through my little Internet space. So, since I’m salty about my own mistakes that led to three years of content being erased, I’m leaving this space and going old school to my original blog. If you’re interested in joining my new/old space, jump over to stillamberiam.blogspot.com and say hi!
