Computer issues can be so much fun. So while this was supposed to go out yesterday, it didn’t. Not only that, but I had to redo this post three times. So let’s try this again. So frustrating.
Today is my baby’s birthday. Four years ago today was actually quite a frightening day for me. Her pregnancy was riddled with complication after complication. I was on bedrest at only 18 weeks into the pregnancy and delivered her at 29 weeks after she had already had four blood transfusions. I am so grateful to all the love, prayers, and support that everyone offered during that difficult time. Kiari came into this world screaming and fighting…. all 3 pounds and 6 ounces of her. LOL. She is still a fighter today. That part gets rather old, but I am so glad for my fighting baby. She is a miracle and I love her to pieces.
This past week I have hit several milestones in my little business. I will be the first to admit that I am a horrible business person. I haven’t made a profit since beginning this, and that kind of worries my accountant and myself for this years taxes. I hope that I don’t have an audit coming. YIKES! I tend to give everything away. When was the last time you paid for any of my videos? And while I sometimes get to keep the tools I demo in the videos I haven’t been paid in money for any of them. I haven’t monetized my videos either, though I think that will change soon.
So what milestones did I hit this past week? Well first, I have been in business for 8 years. That doesn’t seem possible, but it is true. WOOT! Second, I hit over 1,000 Facebook fans. I know, I am still totally a small fry, but I was excited to finally break into the thousands. 🙂 And it won’t really mean much anyway since FB is changing things so you probably won’t really see my posts anyway. Bummer. But the one that I am really excited about is hitting 5,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. I thought I had hit another milestone by hitting 75 videos, but it turns out I actually have 84 up there right now. At any rate, I am so grateful to everyone for their support. I am sad that my blog changed and I lost all of my subscribers. I had over 2,000 readers and now I am down to like 49. So if you are here and reading this, THANK YOU! That also means your chances of winning the giveaway is really good. LOL. Let’s look at what I have to give away.
