While I'm working on getting an astrology post under a 5-minute read, thought I'd just write about some other things I'm working on. I purchased the domain, eclecticrecovery.com with the intention of moving the blog there. It was suggested to me that I might want to place ads and see if I can generate some income from the blog. The actual term she used was "give the Universe an opportunity to say thank you." Only the Universe is not cooperating! I've so far been unable to import into Wordpress or Typepad and have gotten very frustrated with the whole process. So, here's what I'm currently considering. I think I'll start a new blog, transfer the relevant posts (there really is a lot of fluff on this one) and keep both blogs going. If any of you have any advice, I'd love to hear it! And thank you, Miss Sherri Blossoms, for your help.
The business I began has proven to be more of a drain than an asset and I'm trying to decide whether it's worth it to keep it going. It was a fun experiment and despite the lack of sales, I'm very proud of all the work I did. At least it should help me out with my taxes this year!
And finally, on a recovery note, a friend recently asked me why I wanted to be able to drink. She made the choice long ago, due to heavy drinking within her family, to not drink and she wondered why I didn't do the same. Well, I had to think about that one and the answer I came up with was, "Why wouldn't I want to? Why wouldn't I want to be just like anyone else who enjoys a drink and goes on with their life?" The second answer, which was a little harder to admit was, "Well, I've just not been able to do that so I had to find a different way." The third answer, which I find terrifying sometimes, is "Maybe I'm not just doing it for myself."
