So it’s been awhile since I’ve done a regular post, or at least it seems that way. I thought that I might take this time to answer 3 questions that you might have about what’s been going on around here lately:
01 – What’s Up With All These Short Posts?
In short, it’s because I need the money in order to keep TheAndySan.com up and running. Once I’m in the Navy, I’ll be able to easily make the payments. Heck, I might even splurge and go for DreamHost’s 10-year hosting!
At this rate of writing sponsored posts, I should be able to save this site before the May deadline, but I’m not for certain. Here’s the basic breakdown of my website’s annual costs:
95.40 – One year of hosting
9.95 – One year of domain name registration
Grand Total – 105.35
It’s not impossible to reach that amount, but it will take some effort. As always, donations are welcome and you can donate by clicking one of the orange Donate buttons at the top and bottom of every post. If you have a blog of your own, be sure to read up on the benefits of donating to TheAndySan.com! But I digress…
02 – How’s The Weight Loss For The Navy Coming Along?
In a word, great! For the past 16 days, I’ve been running A LOT on the treadmill as well as doing situps and all that fun stuff. Shoveling snow also helped me lose a couple pounds.
I’ve also been eating healthier too and I’ve cut out eating bread (except for flaxseed bread) and drinking pop. I’ve cut back on some other things, but those are the basics.
In 16 days, I’ve lost 9.4 lbs! I had a couple of weight gain setbacks, but I’m working through them one day at a time. My goal is to lose at least 15 lbs by February 25th so that I can pass my weight inspection for joining the Navy.
03 – When Will You Be Blogging & Vlogging Regularly Again?
That’s the big question! I’m trying to take it all one day at a time so it’s very difficult to write posts on a regular basis. With my online time continuing to be erratic, it might be awhile before I’m able to post regularly again. Of course, I will be able to do it again eventually, but I have no idea exactly when. As my situation changes, you guys will be the first to know about it.
While I can write and schedule posts ahead of time, it’s impossible when it comes to vlogs. Vlogs take up a lot more time than a written post (usually around 3 hours from start to finish, compared to an hour or so of just writing), which can get hectic when you’re trying to get everything done on time.
With that said, I’m gonna go and eat supper. See ya next time!
