Yep that is me, right here, right now.
You know I don't usually revert to my blog to complain but I need a moment.
I think I am feeling my age. It seems there is something in the air, and while it has been there for quite some time, here lately it seems even worse. Like a bad smell gone overly bad. Since I did recently have a birthday I keep telling myself it's not worse, it's just me. Getting old.
What ARE you talking about Gail you might ask. I'm talking about technology and change. Everywhere I go these days I am confronted by change I don't want and don't even like.
Now I don't mind change when it truly helps me and makes my life easier, or better or more enriched. But not all change is necessarily good is it?
I used to like Google. I still depend on Google to be my search engine...you can't beat it. But I really don't want Google taking over the internet as they seem wont to do lately. I can no longer get into any of my blogs easily and have to go about it in a convoluted manner because Google wants to connect all of me and my accounts to Google. Whether I want to be connected or not.
So I mentioned in an earlier post that I was thinking about this and I have made up my mind. I am moving my blog. I will keep you updated. I am still working on the new one. And I will gladly tell Google to keep their nose out of it.
I used to like Etsy. But every time they make a change over there it simply makes more work for me. Now I don't mind work. I am an extremely hard worker and put in many, many hours working my businesses. But I believe in working smarter not harder. Because eventually I run out of hours in the day to get everything done.
If you present me with a change that allows me to do less clicking, less scrolling, less writing, less figuring things out, less key tapping, less anything...hey, I'm all for it! But when I have to do more of all this I cry foul!
So I'm thinking about closing my Etsy store. Because when is to much, to much? It's hard enough without these online companies constantly changing things. And every time a company says...Hey Guess What! we've made a change to make things better, they are not usually changes for the better for me...simply changes that make what I do take longer.
I don't hate technology, technology does help me run my businesses. But hey, technology we don't need changes every few nanoseconds. Give me less steps not more!
Okay lovlies thank you for the moment and your ear. I feel better.
Now I have to get back to work
because I hear someone else making a change I probably won't like either. ;-)
