I've put off writing this post for 5 days now, hoping to find the inspiration to turn this message into a legitimate, photo-filled post, but I didn't want any more time to pass before I explained the situation I'm in right now. I lost my blog's URL last Sunday after failing to renew it with my domain and someone else snagged it. It was completely my fault for not checking the email associated with the website, but still a hard blow to absorb.
Trent had the idea to make it into THE park street blog, which is more than acceptable. The hardest part about this was the lack of warning, and no way to redirect anyone to the new URL.
Along with losing 90% of my traffic due to the debacle, I had a completely bizarre and totally unrelated loss of pinterest followers. Sometimes over 500 on specific boards. I can't even fathom how that happened, and the combined disappointment of these two events was enough to drive me to a bout of mini depression.
I know it's not about how many people or followers you have, but it's definitely a reinforcing aspect of the hard work I put into it.
I had no idea how literal it was going to be when I wrote about changes happening on Park Street, and I'm going to use this opportunity to develop my blog even more and keep developing my style. I know this blog has gone through a million changes since I first started it in 2009, and each setback just solidifies my love and passion for it.
So, if you've managed to find me again, or, miraculously, you're still reading, thank you. Knowing that anyone sees my words and pictures really does keep me going on those days when I'm completely uninspired and miserable with self-pity.
Don't forget to add me to your readers and whatnot at theparkstreetblog.com.
Love always- Audrey.
