Good evening friends and fans! I apologize sincerely for my website being down. I was trying to prevent that however; my timing wasn’t quite right. It was partly a billing issue with Weebly. Weebly was getting too expensive every month for my business and right now business has been slow due to the pandemic so I felt it was time to finally make the switch to WordPress. I started creating this new website back in January and have worked on it in my free time or in between clients.
I don’t remember if I had this link for my Google Docs Form in my other blog posts on this new website yet and can’t view it right now so I decided to go ahead and publicly share it again. It will be useful for this moment as my primary website resumedivacompany.net is down possibly for a few days as I work on these technical issues. Here is the form’s link: https://forms.gle/tyAvPBQ7mkAWuJgA7
I also don’t remember if I shared my new Square Donations Checkout link for my Hardship Program. I will have to post that later today. I have to look it up on Square. I’m hoping that after I get some sleep in a few minutes and wake up later today that the new website here with WordPress will be working. I set up the DNS records tonight and the G Suite email setup with WordPress as well as connecting Facebook and LinkedIn to share my new blog posts. I will also be able to connect Twitter and Tumblr later today after I recover my passwords. I don’t use Twitter and Tumblr too often. I’ve mostly been using Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest to social market my business. However; with this new WordPress platform it appears to be slightly different and geared more for bloggers than an e-commerce business that Weebly tried to make my business appear to visitors.
Yes, I’m a great blogger and miss my old GoDaddy blog site for Resume Diva. That’s why I choose WordPress because I felt that now I have the best of both worlds on one website; blogging and Resume Writing.
I want to take a moment to give credit and a HUGE thanks to my colleague named Bridget Weide Brooks for recommending WordPress. She actually has an great online school for Resume Writers and I’m a student right now on there. When I set up my account I had to upload my picture through an WordPress app so that’s when I had to create a WordPress account. I’ve been hearing for a year now great things from other colleagues about WordPress too so it seemed like the right move in my career to make to get to the next level.
If you’re a Resume Writer or just want to start an online business, please check out Bridget’s online school that has two great classes going on right now. The website is: https://resume-writers-university.teachable.com
Also, thank you Bridget for inspiring me to start my online school on Teachable! I’m having some technical issues on there too and need to email them for help. I’ve got the first course ready to go but when you would go to the link the School name is still not showing my school name or description. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Here is the link to my school where you can still at least take the great new class: https://resume-diva-university.teachable.com
Okay, I believe I’ve covered everything on my mind tonight. It’s almost 6 AM and so I’ve worked tirelessly all night to try to get my new website to work across the whole internet. I have more to do but don’t feel staying awake any longer will be very productive in this case. As my father used to say, “there’s always tomorrow.”
Good night/morning everyone and stay safe and stay happy and healthy. I’m praying this pandemic ends in a good way with less lives lost very soon. Take care and God bless everyone!
