It is the 21st century so I'm not sure why I'm surprised at the ever-constantly updates in technology that being said however there's a downside with that for me because of my ADD.
Whenever there's something out-there that's new to me I think right away "I need that" so I go ahead change over to whatever is and hate it in a few months.
When I first started my business I had a WordPress site, as my inventory grew I had to pay a ridiculous dollar amount for the shopping cart etc. Well that didn't fly with me.
Then started looking at other sites like Shopify, BigCartel, Woo- Commerce and I'm sure there was another.
I went with Shopify, it's affordable they offered several free templates and there were also several that were for purchase for as much as $150 but figured they were for big companies with a great amount of bells and whistles.
So I get switch to Shopify, set up my store with a free template etc. Several weeks later I start using the Blog that comes with the store and it sucked. It was beyond cumbersome with no real way to enhance the SEO. Now I'm upset but figure well I'll just use Blogger for the Blog and link it to my website.
Then I learned about Weebly and I'm thinking oh no here I go again. Sure enough - it comes with all the bells and whistles, it's extremely user friendly, it offers great customer service etc. At this point I'm ready pull my hair out.
Lo and behold I read an article online about ADHD, it was just what I needed. It suggested to wait at least one week before making any decisions like this as adults with ADD/ADHD our brain is constantly firing off different thoughts and ideas but never long enough to focus on the pro's and con's about something.
So I made a commitment to myself to wait a week before making a switch, actually 2.5 weeks (after suffering through a nasty cold). Since then I was able to ask a friend who uses weebly for his business and got the feedback that reassured me, I also checked out a few websites also using Weebly and I think I am going to make the switch. I do however need to migrate everything over a period of time because I've learned this will take the stress out of it for me. So in the meantime I'm using Weebly for my Blog while working on the transition of my paintings behind the scene.
