It has been awhile since I did a monthly wrap up. I figured I needed to get back on track where that is concern.
Events For the Month
On the Blog
Change of Host and Domain.
First, for the regular visitors to my blog, you would have noticed that I have moved from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress. I had been contemplating this move for a while, but kept putting it off. However, when Facebook blocked my blog links citing them as spam, not once but twice, I knew it was time for me to find a new home.
I began by purchasing my own domain, then after several weeks of research and based on recommendations from other bloggers, I chose Nose Graze as my host and as they say the rest was history.
Like all relocations, it came with its share of challenges, however Ashley from Nose Graze worked and with me to get things off the ground
Despite me continuing to Disqus commenting platform, I could not recover all my comments on the blog. I am not sure of the reason this occurred.
I know I still have a lot to learn, but I plan to have fun while doing so.
I read eleven books this month, broken down as follows:
Blood Cure- Review
ebook – 10
I am 12 books ahead in my Goodreads challenge.
I took advantage of Audible’s 2 for 1 sale and purchased these beauties
Off the Blog
April has been quite an interesting month. The Corona Virus landed on our shores in March and since then nothing has been the same. I know we can’t compare to other countries where a lot of lives has been lost because of the virus. The government placed some parts of the island on a 24 hr lock down for two weeks to prevent community spread when several employees from a single call centre within that area contracted the virus. In addition, they have placed the entire island under curfew from 6pm to 6 am for several weeks now. I have been working mostly from home. I am required to go into the office once per week. At the time of writing this post there were 432 reported cases out of a population of 3 million, and each day the numbers grow. There were some recoveries, but there were also a few deaths. The biggest problem is that most people refuse to practice social distancing and the rule of having mass gatherings, which has its own share of repercussions.
My contribution to aid in preventing the spread is to stay home, only leaving when necessary. I pray that May will bring much needed positive vibes.
