Hello, peeps! It’s been a while since I last posted to this blog, but that was not my intention. I had fully intended to create/stick to a regular posting schedule this year, but disaster struck. Hence, this blog update.
If you have seen my last few posts, you might have already guessed that my absence was due to technical difficulties. Shortly after posting about my excellent news, I realized that my troubles had only started. Over the next two days, it was getting hard for me to work with my computer because I kept getting the Disc Repair message. It got so bad, that I had to partially write my latest post (before this one) with my phone.
By January 23-24, 2021, I was unable to even boot up my now 3-year-old laptop. And since I was unable to purchase one at the time (I figured that it would be cheaper to buy a new one instead of getting the thing fixed), I had to use my phone to access the Internet and take notes for any future post ideas. Lo and behold, I was not as productive as I wanted to be, but I was able to take some notes to get started on a least two posts.
Why Am I Telling You This Now?
Well, there are two reasons why I am posting today of all days. For one thing, it is my birthday (again, don’t ask), so I wanted to put something up today and during my birth month. Secondly, I can write freely now because I finally got a new laptop, two days after the anniversary of getting the last one.
What Do I Plan to Do Moving Forward?
I don’t know when I will get back to a regular posting schedule on this blog, but I plan on posting at least one Famous Sayings post next month. For now, I am just getting used to this new PC and figuring things out. I have other projects that I’m working on, so I need to get to work and hammer out a schedule.
When it comes to this computer, I must not take any chances. As I talked about in a previous post, I need to forgo using the backup service and manually back up my files and text — in numerous places. In addition, I should become accustom to printing up notes, articles, and writing some notes by hand.
That said …
Man, I hope this laptop lasts longer than the last one. (Seven years would be nice.) Regardless, I must be more proactive in saving my information, files, and work in case disaster strikes yet again.
