If you got a problem, the hubs will solve it!
In fact, it’s kind of the opposite.
Look, I’m no dummy… I could very likely figure a lot of this out. I’m just moderately lazy. Especially when someone you love tells you he will “take care of it“. I don’t want to waste my time stressing over something that potentially comes easy to the hubs. I’ve also messed things up in the past, so I don’t want to make his job harder.
But… life happens.
The hubs has a job where he codes all day. And when he comes home, I’d like, no, I need him to pitch in with the kids… not be stuck behind a computer. Our mutual sanity is precious. We both need a break around dinnertime. I remember getting burned out on the phone way back when I worked an office-job. When I’d come home, the last thing I’d want to do was answer a phone call, let alone talk on the phone. I love my friends & family… but I don’t always love talking on the phone. Sure, I’ll text until my heart’s content, but to this day, if you call me, it’s rare that I answer.
So I get it.
I get the the hubs has promised me a transition to WordPress for about 9 months, and the labor & delivery of it has been painful at best.
I get that the hubs needs to prioritize work that he is paid for, as well as family-time above working on what is, essentially, my “hobby“.
So no, I can’t pay the hubs to transition my blog to the SEO-friendly WordPress… well, not with cash anyhow. And if I can’t afford the hubs, I really can’t afford to hire an outsider to do the work either. Short of whoring my sorry, cellulite-infested ass out… and no one wants to see that.
I need to get off my ass and learn how to do this shit on my own if I want my blog to grow. And I do!
If you have any suggestions… cheap classes, conference sessions, etc that can give me a boost, I’ll be ever so grateful and will absolutely buy you a beer if/when our paths ever cross.
