As some regulars will know this month has finally been the straw that broke the camels back with me. After 7 years as a web designer I am calling it a day. Last year was horrible and I decided in December to sell my business and property and get away from it all.
In June-ish last year my main site got banned. I had no duplicates that use different techniques to take its place, so I was stuck ...
I down-sized my business, moved out of town and had to lose some workforce / friends along the way. A Google update and I was really up against it.
This was a rollercoaster and everything was going downward ... but it still held my attention like nothing else, the dream that I could program my way out of trouble was too much of a challenge. I was hooked to DC watching and PR fluctuations made my head spin. I LOVED IT!
My message to others, as I make my final post and move on to a regular life, is "If you feel it all slipping away from you ... let it go. You're bright and you can start again ... don't waste your time watching Google ... Life is too short".
Best Wishes to all the people that have tried to help over the last 7 months ... where did all the time go?
