A New Domain

      10 Comments on A New Domain

This week I’ve been working diligently on my website. Doing homework on hosting & security. Researching best practices, “cookie” policies, privacy policies, and all that. Working so hard, that P&P crashed for most the day on Saturday. UGH!! freaked out HaMade it pretty difficult to get something out this morning. So, you get to hear how I kill time waiting for my site to “propagate” – or whatever the h*!! it does when I’m waiting for it to DO what I think I tell it to do.

Too afraid to leave my desktop in this chaos, I surf the net. No, not Christmas shopping, but checking out other bloggers. All the pop-ups, all the hustling to make a buck… No one seems to simply enjoy the hobby of it. Then, the evil capitalistic side of me kicks in, saying “monetize“. For Passports & Postcards, that won’t be our thing. But, just what is Hali’s next big thing?relaxed Hali

It Got Me Thinking

 

And thinking. And thinking. I’m struggling to see where I fit in. I’m still teasing out ideas, but here’s what I’ve been grappling with:

  • The vanlifers who portray the freedom from things, yet sink thousands and thousands into their van, computers and cameras – from filters to drones.
  • The youthfulness of the most profitable bloggers.
  • The Boomer generation who cater to Luxury Travel.
  • Influencers who “critique” their free stay at hotels, free products, free cruises, free…

I mean, come on, are you really going to say something bad about a gift? NO, you say thank you, and you rage on about how fab it is.

All this hypocrisy bothers me, and it’s leading me somewhere, I’m just not sure where. I had a vision of me doing a YouTube video unboxing Wart, Mole & Skin Tag Removal. Now wouldn’t that be sexy?

The next thing I know, I’m brainstorming domain names, and seeing if they’ve been taken.

They’ve been taken.

Except one.

So, I Bought A New Domain

 

LittleBoldLady.com. I jumped on it. Seems like everything is BOLD these days, maybe it’ll take me somewhere.

But, don’t look it up. I haven’t done anything with it, and it’ll be awhile before I jump in. Like I said, I’m still grappling.

Is there a graceful place in hobby, helping & earning, without selling out? Without being a hypocrite?

You’ll be the first to know when I figure it out or when I start moving forward on this… let’s just hope it’s not because P&P has crashed…

    Don’t sell out Hali! I love your ideas and your goal to be conscious of the “trappings”. I am learning a lot through your posts! xoxo
