I had my turning point; I switched gear from depression to "let's get stuff done". So I decided that I am going to retire this blog (after I get it all fixed up) and start a new blog using a different platform so I have more power to customize my site and introduce new features to make it more interactive. It's going to take a lot of time and work (especially when it's so hard to see).
Something else it's going to take, money. There is a bit of a start up cost so I need to come up with about $100 for hosting before I begin since I will no longer be using free blogging service like blogger. After that I am hoping to get it running self-sufficiently pretty quick.
I also need a new computer. This one was made around 2009 and is really having a hard time keeping up with current software and even websites like facebook... Now I have no intention of trying to buy a brand new computer, no, that is too much money that can go to something else. I just need something that works so when this one gives out I can keep blogging uninterrupted. So I plan on buying a used computer on Ebay and refurbishing it myself to suit my needs. I can comfortably get one for about $200.
So my goal is to raise $300 to have everything I need to start a new, fresh, clean blog and finally take it seriously, as in, "this is my full-time job" seriously. Given everything that is going on in my life right now, I need this, I need this to stay mentally healthy which as you know, is sure to help me physically. Plus, this should greatly expand my audience which means I can help more people! I need to feel like I have a purpose in life again because that is really what I have been struggling with lately.
So if you would like to help support this blog and help get my new website set up, you can donate below! $300 is not such an unobtainable reality. Thank you for your support!
