To each his own. To me my own.

Just Like Starting Over

Have you ever heard the term “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? I grew up with that old saying, but I don’t know what it’s gonna take for me to ever learn.

I wish I could step back several days in time and undo the name change I assigned to my blog. Had I known then the repercussions of doing it I would’ve left it as is, or at least kept the old blog name with a line or two of where to find me.

It’s not that important, I know, but here’s the thing. I’m now realizing how long it took for me to establish a permanent fixture here and obtain a few loyal readers – however boring my posts may be. It’s literally taken years. Not that stats mean anything, I know – but when do I hit it and the number is consistently 0, it kinda sucks. Every one of my prior subscriber links and blog roll links are broken to holy hell.

It really is just like starting over. 😦

  2. Oh no what a nightmare! I think I will be very cautious at ever changing mine after reading this. I hope your readers find you again 🙂

      Exactly, Vix. I wish I’d known more before I did the deed, although it cautioned very strongly that I’d never be able to change it back. That in itself should’ve told me something!

    No comments must be a real bummer! I still read your blog everytime theres a new one. Some days my depression lets me comment and other times it doesn’t. I’ll be happy when everyone finds you again…I love to read their comments too. Here’s another song for ya… Time is on your side {Stones}. People will find you again, but until then….just remember you have at least one person who is reading your blog. Did that come out right?? Love ya!

    • Yes it came out right! 🙂 Thanks for that, Helen. And that’s probably my favourite Stones song. Love you!

  5. I was always puzzled by such adult wisdom when I was a kid. Who would fix something not broken? And if it was broken few could fix it satisfactorily anyway. Plus if you broke something(even if it was already broken) Ma would beat the tar out of you with the gigantic wooden salad spoon but it was “that’s alright” if your cousin broke it.

    • Glad to hear I’m not the only one puzzled by that saying as a kid! Now that I’m an adult, it seems to come around full-circle every blasted time.
