BRB: Under a Pile of Dirt

It’s been a frustrating few months over here business-wise, hence my general silence on my poor blog. I wanted some updates to my website, and turned to my usual people. They weren’t available as I wanted, so I sought out someone else. I kept getting in contact with people who each do one part of the vast process that is having and maintaining a website. There are “front end” people, “back end” people, and something called “FTP” which everyone understands but me. I have no idea what any of this means.

I broke down; metaphorically busting open my piggy bank, offering whoever would step forward to just DO IT.

Do the stuff that makes it work.

Do all of the stuff together. Make it go.

For the past few months, I’ve felt like I’m under a pile of dirt trying to make sense of this.

On top of this, my dogs are sick. Leeloo stopped eating, and it turned out a major tooth cleaning was in order. This involved her getting knocked out and having dental work done. Now I have to brush her teeth every day, a task that involves me coming away covered in dog spit and chicken-flavored tooth paste. Now she’s eating, but Matty has stopped. There was a glorious 24 hours where everyone was eating as they should. Now he is laying around the house listless. He’s nearly 13, and I’m fearing not-good things. We go to the vet tomorrow.

    FTP is like a more difficult version of Dropbox.

    Good luck with your dogs and website shit, seriously sometimes the internet is just too much of a complicated mess.

    Oh no, darling, I will think good thoughts for your pups! Also, Sherry’s above summary of FTP is the simplest and most accurate I have ever heard. I work with it at work and all I know is “I drop this file in one place and it appears in another more complicated-to-reach place, magically!” FTP is a heady type of technology witchcraft.

    Poor Matty. I hope things work out OK.

    I have broken my blog so many times. Chris used to take care of all of those things. I have no idea. It’s all fixable.
