Why Are Things So Wonky Lately?

Why Are Things So Wonky Lately?

simplify statement organized chaos onlineThe website has been a hot mess for over a week AND we have some cool things coming up. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster here at oCo headquarters. We would have called you, but we were moody.

If you are new to the blog or read on a regular basis, you may have noticed that the site was down for maintenance, had images missing, was back in maintenance mode and now has images missing. Again.

We thought this was going to be the one thing that could send us over the edge. Our brain space and time was completely consumed by what was going on.

A little behind the scenes: We needed to make some adjustments to the structure of our site by a certain deadline (insert tech speak about hosting, web file management and primary domain rearrangement), so we contacted our hosting company. They are, in layman’s terms, the company that makes it possible for us to have a website online. It’s like owning property on the internet and they are our broker.

What was supposed to be a very simple adjustment turned into a total cluster. Our hosting company was scrambling to figure out what on earth had gone wrong on their end as we attempted to reset things on our end. Many hours were spent with tech support and, after meeting pretty much every person they have on payroll, we believe we’ll be invited to the next potluck at their office. Fingers crossed!

The whole process has been stressful. What do we do when we’re stressed? We organize.¬†Well, we do that when we’re stressed, bored, happy, frustrated, etc, etc, etc. You get the point. This was our sign to get the website organized. It was becoming clear that all signs pointed to “get your crap in order, ladies.”

So we did… and we’re PUMPED about it!

In the coming months, you’ll start to see a different look on the site. We’re making things MUCH simpler for you. We preach the “quick, cheap and easy” which means we need to function in exactly that way. Always evolve, right?

Why are we telling you all this? 

1. Because you’re our friend and we share everything with our friends.

2. Because we don’t want you to think that we are changing who we are – it’s just the look that’s becoming more simple.

3. Because we’re adding a “services” section which has been 100% by the request of readers of this blog!

4. Because you are the reason we are here. Without you, there’s no us.

Stay tuned and, as always, your thoughts and opinions are encouraged! Either comment on a post (including this one) or contact us via email.
