True story: I accidentally blew up my Shopify blog. I thought I was deleting an old blog post, but alas, I was deleting The Whole Damn Blog. And it took just two buttons to do it. After many hours trying to restore it, I managed to get 5 posts out of the google cache. So, I'm taking this as a sign to start fresh.
There are indeed 100s of very old blog posts over on my old blog, but I'm not crazy enough to try to get them over here. I've tried that before. Besides, I think how much I've grown and changed over the past 8 years, and it seems silly to look back.
The hippie chick side of me says the universe is telling me something. Could be it's saying, "Hey, Bari! Back up your own damn data". And OK, alright, I'll do that.
But I'm choosing to believe that there's something else I'm supposed to pay attention to here. There were several blog posts running through my head the other day. A couple times when I said to myself, "Hey, I should blog about that". I'm going to start listening for those cues, write them down, and build something bigger in this space.
I think I'll have some lemonade from these lemons. Would you like me to pour you a glass?
