So yesterday was a bit of a nightmare! When I was just about to update my blog posts yesterday morning, I got this awful windows dialogue message saying that I had run out of hard drive space 😭😭
Tech details – skip if you’re not a techie!
You would think that someone like me that works in tech would be monitoring things like this. I mean, I had been just not very well. I already knew that I was getting low on HDD space but I kind of kept putting it off. Finally, I could do that no longer and I decided to clone my hard drive onto a brand new SSD which is amazing! Not only do I have a much faster hard drive but I also have A LOT more space (like a terabyte more!) But this was not without it’s hitches.
The first thing is that it took almost all day to clone my original drive! That was so frustrating. My partner had to help me reinstall it into the PC because for some reason, there was a problem with the MBR and it wasn’t booting correctly. He finally managed to fix it this morning which is why I am online now! I was really worried that I wouldn’t get my blogs updated on time because I had only scheduled posts for this blog and not for NowShowingNZ. And I made a promise to myself as a writer to write every day on both of my blogs and that is a promise I intend to keep.
To upgrade or not to upgrade?
I’ve been thinking about upgrading both of my most active blogs here on WordPress for some time now and I think I might take the plunge and do it. Since I spend so much of my time on both of these blogs, I figured I could upgrade them and really make them something special. I want to continue using WordPress as is but I do want to make changes to the overall look and feel of this blog.
I also want to start using the SEO tools that come with the upgrade. I’m already familiar with the SEO tools used on WordPress as I used them for my articles when writing articles on other blogs. And SEO is something I have been trying to make the time to work on for these blogs. But that’s a blog post for another time.
Do any of my readers have the business upgrade on their blogs? I’d be keen to know if you do and how you find it or if you could offer any insights, I would be very grateful!
Until tomorrow’s post, stay safe everyone, please wear a mask and keep creating!
