Moving My Blog Platform While Trying to Keeping My Abstinence and Sanity

Hi and welcome to my first blog on my new platform!

I can’t even begin to tell you how painfully frustrating it was to change my blog to be located on wordpress.com to wordpress.org. 

The hosting site I used was really great. They seemingly handled everything, which was fabulous for a non-techy like me.  However, for some reason, and you’d think it would be a snap to move between the two WordPress platforms, for me, it was a nightmare. I spent countless hours on the telephone with their excellent support team, however, whenever we hung up the phone (after over a good hour on the phone each time!) and thought the problem was solved, it wasn’t. It took so much time and energy to do this, it was incredibly draining and by the time it finally worked, after four days of this, I was so mentally drained and exhausted, that I couldn’t even feel the joy of finally accomplishing what I had set out to do!

That is the, well, sort of the bad news.  The good news is that while the issue of keeping my sanity is still questionable, I did manage to keep my abstinence.  In the past, dealing with all of this stress and frustration would have led me directly to pick up the food.  I would have definitely rationalized that I was totally justified to indulge in some treats for all of my trouble.  Somehow,  thank goodness, I did not.  I think I was so consumed, exhausted and mentally drained from the whole ordeal, that I really didn’t have any food issues during this past week that it has taken to get this blog migration done.

I still have a ways to go in figuring out how to make it work/look/feel like my wordpress.com blog, but like me and my compulsive eating, it’s a work-in-progress.

    Heya, what a snazzy new look for your journal! I will remember to change the links in my journal tomorrow morning so that people can get to this new site from the sidebar and from the posts that I’ve linked to you through (just in case).
