I Hate All This Techy Stuff
I love writing and running a website, I love helping people.
But what I hate is plugins, databases, backups, errors, page load speeds......
I can't keep up with it all. It makes my head spin.
I rely on my website to make me money and I am scared that all the work I have done will be lost. What if something goes wrong? What if I install a plugin that messes something up? Why is my page load speed bad when I think I have done everything right?
I need a mentor, someone who can help me, but everyone is so busy with their own sites.
I need to know how to backup my site. I need to know how to protect my site from hackers. Maybe this is all really simple stuff to some, but to me it is huge and I don't understand it.
Anyways, this is just a ramble. I get like this when I hit a wall. I have a site that I can't backup myself because the server times out when I try. I have contacted the host and they have told me to buy a dedicated server, so ya, spend more money.Then I worry that it won't even solve my problem.
I hate that you have to install a plugin just to see if it is right for you. Then when you delete it, does it leave stuff on your site? I have files from a plugin I deleted a long time ago that I can't get rid of. I feel like I just want to give up some days.
Anyways.....sorry about the downer post. Just needed to vent.
