After my long break from WA

Last Update: January 12, 2016

I'm back after absent for almost 18 months. Something in life took me away from continuing with WA. I'm still overwhelmed by mixed feelings coming back to visit my blog, my website, and more so my followers at WA. It's like starting all over again for I could not immediately recall how I managed to build my website.

It took me a while to recap trying to be in synch with my web presence. First I read all the update notifications from Wordpress, the Plug-ins, SEO etc. I am impressed how WA has improved over the last 2 years and then, I am amazed by my own creations during the 6 months before I had to take leave from WA. Now It is a challege for me to recoup my previous work done, to know where I had left off, and to continue my lessons and connections with the Community.

My advice from the above experience is never to leave your WA works for too long, even if you must take a long leave, please do pay regular visits to at least check and answer your WA emails. Regrettably, I had failed to do that.

It looked like I'm in the same boat as you were in the past. I have to leave wa for a moment.

Welcome back Fred. You are right. Never leave your WA works for too long. I've not been posting for almost 1 month... too busy with my new project at work. But I promise myself to start again tomorrow. I am sure we are able to do it together. Do let me know if there's anything I can help you. Just pm me and will try to revert asap. Enjoy your online journey!

Welcome back Fred! I'm a bit late noticing this, but glad to see you back. It definitely is hard getting back into the swing of things...looking through some of the older posts on my sites I too wonder how I did some of the stuff...great advice to check in once in awhile even if we're not up to actually working on it.

You'll get it sorted day at a time. Thanks for sharing! Take care and best wishes :) ~Sherry

Yes it's a bit hard if you have been away from WA for a while. We tend to forget things easily. I am still a bit new but I made notes of all the lessons so far. But since you had been with WA you should be ok because the basic setting would still be the same. Welcome back.
