Change Gonna Come

Oh, Yes It Is.

I have some exciting news! I am finally moving to self-hosted and will actually have my own legit website. Lucky me! Everything is still getting transferred and I will work on it to make it shiny and new so I can share with all of you.

What you should know:

  • It will still be personal finance related
  • It will be more creative
  • I want it to be more interactive and more inspirational

So it will be changing a bit, but I think the changes will be good. Change is interesting. I had a fantastic blogger meetup on Thursday, came home at midnight and dropped $100 on my domain and hosting. I was so excited about my new idea. I feel passionate about creating an inspiring space that motivates people to payoff debt and also share their experiences with debt. Then yesterday I had a moment of panic.

I just dropped $100 on a website. I don’t have that many readers. What if no one follows me to the new site? I have no clue what I am doing.

These thoughts are still there, but I am moving through them. It’s not too much of an investment, and I hope to get more opportunities out of having my own site.  To help me get through the uncertainty and fear, I have a mantra I’ve been following.

It’s not a challenge, it’s an opportunity.

Whenever I feel like I am freaking out because I don’t know how to do something, or doubting myself, stressed out, etc, I ask myself to find the learning opportunities instead of focusing on this seemingly insurmountable road block ahead of me. Because you know what? Usually they aren’t that big once you get them up close. It just looks that way in your head. Doubt distorts your vision.

Once the new site is up and running, I will let you all know. I hope you will find me there and participate 🙂

  1. This is exciting news, well done! I am thinking of moving my blog to self-hosted domain, but I think I will wait a bit longer and take it from there. I will make sure I check out your new “home” once you’re all settled 🙂

  2. Whoo hoo! Congrats! I feel the same way about teaching volleyball…I’m petrified to do it by myself and with KIDS! But I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone and say yes to opportunities that will help me grow. Good luck!

    • Getting out of your comfort zone is huge. I feel like this year I’ve gotten out of my comfort zone a lot, which is why I call it the Year of Being Uncomfortable. Funny, I’ve worked a lot with kids throughout my career and feel totally comfortable in that realm. You will be great, just keep it fun and know when their energy drops, change it up.

  3. Great! I have to say I had much more opportunities when I moved to self hosted. People look more favorably on your blog. I hope it goes well!!!
