So, to say I am not computer savvy would be a gross understatement. Although weebly is quite user friendly, I still get frustrated and annoyed with trying to create a presentable web-site. I tend to like things "busy" and "colorful"...which means I get carried away. Clutter makes me comfortable. Seriously. Nothing makes me feel better than to have my "shit" all around me. I am the only person in my genetic line that feels that way. Perhaps my mom has some explaining to do. Just kidding Reenie baby-
(she reads these...all of them. She is very proud of me!)
True story....I am part Polish. I am a ton German- which means I am more than a "part" Polish. Both sides of the family are filled with it. My paternal grandmother bought me the most beautiful polish princess dress once. My mother hated it. With a passion. With her entire being. I wore that dress everywhere. My mom used to suggest I wear something else, anything else. I think I can still remember the eye roll and utter disappointment on her face when I proudly appeared from my room, once again, wearing my beautiful pink, with multiple layers of ruffles, dress. She would always smile though and then talk through her teeth....a true sign she was holding her tongue. Where was I going with this? Oh yes, trying to build this website...again.
Many of you know I transitioned last year from being a yoga studio that offered massage to just being a yoga studio. With that came the opportunity to become "Ardha Moon Yoga" again. Since we don't offer massage, and won't be offering massage, I decided it would make sense to remove the word "Massage" from our domain site. Changing locations unexpectedly also begged for a fresh start.
I started this transfer back in November. Yup. Holy hell- I learned quickly that's a big deal apparently....at least for weebly. Nothing can be done by phone. They don't trust anyone. Trying to get everything transferred was more difficult than it should have been, so I gave up. Yup- 100% threw in the towel and walked away. (This says a lot because I can be hard headed and unwilling to accept defeat. *Note- it did take me 5 months to give in and my decision was fueled by an expiring domain notification.) I still think that Weebly has some of the most ridiculous policies I have ever been subjected to and that says a lot when I also work for the government. Now, you may be thinking- why would you stay with weebly? Fair question with a simple answer- I know how it works and I'm not afraid to hit enter or change something. They also have lots of options, and colors, and layouts. The opportunity for one to lose hours of their life creating is absurd.
So- the new website will be up and running shortly. You will be able to find me at www.ardhamoonyoga.com
The old site will only get you to the Go-Daddy page. It will tell you the domain no longer exists, because it doesn't. I debated attaching the old domain to the new domain...at least for a little bit, but I think I have decided against that.
I will be changing everything and announcing the change in class. It should be much easier for all of you than it has been for me.
Have a great Tuesday....or Wednesday....Or Thursday. I have no idea when this site will actually go live.
By the way- Keister is from the German word "kiste" which means box or case--but the slang sense of rump also exists in the German language. To be honest, I didn't even realize I was using a "German word"....I was just trying not to use the word ass.
Here's hoping for the best-
Sharing my thoughts-
I like to talk too much...it's a gift really. I have decided that writing it all down will be much easier for you to tolerate. In this space I promise to be authentic. I have been told that I often make it all look easy...and it's not. I promise. -e
