Hey. This is me on the right. I did get out of the house this year. We went on a ski trip with friends. No I did not win this amazing award this is just an air freshener. I don’t need to win anything. I am pretty content with all that God has given me.
But this post is about growing. See I started Charlie the Cavalier on blogger. While I like Google because they let people try pretty much anything for free they don’t let you try anything. That is why I moved this blog to wordpress and got my own cool domain name. Can you believe Charlie the Cavalier was not taken? I did it because Google closed one of my blogs with all of the information that I had. At first I was in shock. I wanted it back. How could they just do that with all of my data? Then I realized that I did not pay anything for it and they can do what ever they want. I moved on and now I think the site is better than ever. After learning some new stuff which was fun and stressful, I really like wordpress better. There I said it.
Then as I was enjoying creating content and making some extra cash google decided that I can not be part of adsense / YouTube ads anymore. Again there was some shock. But that is ok. My Google training wheels are coming off and I am going to keep trying out different ad revenue sources. You see as the site grows and changes occur I am ok with changing with the times. I wonder what Google will take away from me in the future. I hope it is not Google maps, I really like Google maps. But for now I will keep learning new things with Google and then try other companies as I grow in knowledge and need for more.
What technology training wheels have you taken off recently?
