In the Heart of the Hustle

I am deep in the heart of the hustle….

This page is for sharing the less glamourous side of the side hustle.
You know:

  • The daily grinding
  • The endless task lists
  • The quest for balance
  • The technical rantings

Stuff like that.

I made a dedicated page for it because I’m still not comfortable with the idea of a singular, massive blog. I know, I know.

Tags, and categories, and niche content! Oh, my!

But still

I already have a blurnal for general griping. This is the page for the little things that kill.

But, if I can see that, then why am I plodding along? Ah, yes. I’m also a proud and stubborn woman, unwilling to give up on something I really want. You see, for the first time in my life, I actually want something. Truly, desperately, with all my passion and desire, I want this side-hustle venture of mine to succeed.

  • My brand spanking new website just crashed.
    Am I joking? No. No, I’m not. I wouldn’t joke about something this serious. I literally spent hours today transferring content from my old site to the new one and crash, bam, boom. It’s gone.I logged into my cpanel and found the errors. Apparently, Cloudflare tried to connect to my origin server but was refused. I checked my host and their servers are up and running.

    This is really just to make sure that my settings are working properly. I figured I’d include it because this is, after all, reality. So. Much. Testing.
