Sometimes the universe knows best...
For the past month I have been in a frustrating exchange with Google about the rights to my domain name, SkinnyHollie.com. They changed my domain to a G-Suite a few years ago without my consent. When I was prompted to log in this year (after not logging in for several years) to renew my credit card information, I couldn't remember the password. It wasn't one of my "usual" passwords, apparently. The only way they could reset my password was to text me with the phone number they had on file, which is no longer my phone number.
So after going back and forth with them for weeks, I've been forced to give up. Since I no longer have the card and bank account that was tied to the account (I closed them last year since it was a local TN bank and I don't live in TN anymore), I have no way to get into the account to renew the domain.
But honestly, I don't know why I was still hanging on to that account anyway. Except for the many posts (dating all the way back to 2008) that I poured my heart into for so many years. The good thing is that I figured out how to import those posts into this blog.
So after that was done, I deleted SkinnyHollie.com.
I'm done with that chapter. After 9 years.
And it was hard.
But it was time.
My heart isn't into blogging anymore. I had dreams of taking this blog somewhere... making a name for myself and being an inspiration to people on a larger scale.
I don't know if I have that in me anymore. I can barely inspire myself most days. Just being honest.
So for now, I'll stay with TransformingHollie.com. But who knows, I may reinvent myself to something totally different in the months and years to come.
I'm still on Instagram, but have changed my name there to @the_real_hollie_j.
I feel like I may delete my Facebook account soon. But I'm TransformingHollie over there until that happens.
