The good, the bad...

...Only the ugly is missing. Maybe I can figure something out.

I'll start with the good!

So I've been busy working on my designs and the online shops where I sell both the designs and my pictures. I've been working on different sites to try and display it all in one place, without people wandering off towards other sellers too quickly. Also to add affiliate links so if they do wander off to other designs, I'll still get a little cut of the profit.

Then hubby asked me if maybe I should claim my domain name. I've been claiming my name on various social media sites and others, but I never really thought about actually buying playfulfoodie.com.

Yesterday evening, hubby told me someone had already bought playfulfoodie.com. He showed me through a... whois site or something? So I checked out the info there. I told him 'I see this person owns the domain since today, how come they bought it today? Not like they can really claim it's their brand. I've been using the name on many sites for a couple of years now!'. We checked if there was already a site up, which there wasn't. I wondered why someone would buy a domain without setting up a site. I theorized that they could have just bought it in hopes to later sell it to me for more money, but still thought it a bit strange. Besides, I would never go for something as low as that. They could sooner choke on it. Hubby told me 'Maybe all they want is a kiss.'.

...It was a warm day and so I blame that for me being slow to come to the conclusion that hubby is awesome and bought me a domain name.

We now own playfulfoodie.com! I didn't really have a site ready for it yet, but for now, he redirected it to my new Wix site, which I joined after seeing @honeydue's site up there (P.S.: She just released a book with all of her Steemit stories!). So go on, head on over to playfulfoodie.com just to check out my awesome new link! The site isn't much to look at yet. I did, however, add a Steemit icon to my social links. Priorities!

Now on to the bad!

I wear the name 'clumsy' with pride, but I haven't had many clumsy moments. I think the world thought I should stay true to the name though and it set me up for a fall. Literally.

So I was in the bedroom and wanted to look out the window, up at the trees. I leaned on the foot of the bed, but it's not an actual bed yet. It's just a pile of mattresses. Next to those are a couple of plastic containers to store unused clothes in.

My leaning did not go well and I slipped down. I tried to balance against the window frame, but the containers were in the way, making it too far a reach while I was slipping further down. So... I let go and fell, right on my knee! The poor thing is scraped now.

This was early morning. After it, I felt so bad for myself, I decided I didn't have to be useful that morning and just hobbled over to the couch, sat myself down with a cold wash cloth on my knee, and watched Netflix all morning.

It's nothing too bad, I can still walk fine. It just doesn't look too pretty.

Hey, I guess there's the ugly!

That's soooo nice of him! Congratulations! <3
I also think about having my own domain, but I'm such a slowpock in such things:)

Thank you! Yes, it is very nice of him :D

I'm sure it's just because you have so many other things to do! That's my problem right now too. So many things I want to do, but they're all fighting for attention and can't all win ;-)

As kids, scraped knees built character. As an adult, they are so much more painful. I once fell down a flight off stairs carrying my gaming PC tower when moving house. It survived. My knees, they did not. :P

That wasn't a fun experience!

Oh, so true!

Oh my gosh, that sounds horrible! When I read the first part, I was afraid your PC would have died there. Poor knees for taking the worst of that. What a nice sacrifice!

I think a lot of people mass buy domain names for very cheap in hopes of someone actually wanting to buy it and being able to sell it for a profit...I’m no expert though

Yeah I think they do, I read about it a couple of years ago.

As soon as you wrote that your hubby told that you should buy your domain i was thinking "He probably bought the domain xD"

Congrats on the new website i'm going to check it out :)

He is considerate like that!

Thanks! It's far from done and I'm not even sure I'll stick to this particular site, but I'll finish that one up first, which will take me a while. Can always switch later now that I have my own domain name and we can just redirect it somewhere else :-)

Ha, ha, ha. I guessed your hubbie had bought our domain before you did @playfulfoodie. 😂

Sorry about your knee. Hope it feels better soon. At least you manage to get the complete set of good, had and ugly! 😁

A little sharper than I was!

Everything for a good ending to my blog! ;-)
