I'm still here!

I don't even know that this post is necessary, but I thought I'd write it just in case.

A few days ago I decided it was time to move from scaffoldedmath.blogspot.com to scaffoldedmath.com. Why? I am wondering this same thing right about now. 

See, most bloggers hire someone to make changes like this. Me? In recent years I've been doing everything myself. Because I know what I'm doing? No way. Because I'm not sure who to even ask for help? You got it! There may be a few trust issues in there, too.

So a few days ago I went into blogger and clicked a few buttons, went into Go Daddy and clicked a few more buttons then went to bed. And in the morning I had what can only be described as a royal bloggin' hot mess.

Somehow - by the grace of God most likely - I stumbled upon a few more buttons in Google that needed to be pressed in order for a name change to go through. But at this point it was too late. Google's gears were already set in motion and no number of sitemap submissions was going to fix it. 

I now had a scaffoldedmath.blogspot.com AND a scaffoldedmath.com, no more sitelinks under my blog in Google search results and a family left wondering where the heck mom went. Scaffolded Math and Science started as a way to pay the bills during my unpaid maternity leave. Since then, it's become a way to support my family and has filled a creative void that had long been left empty. So when I mess things up as I am known to do, it bothers me. A lot. In a lot of ways.

Today there seems to be some progress and things may be slowly ironing themselves out. The Google bots are doing something out there because my blog is now renamed in Google search results, though the sitelinks are still gone and my TpT store is now the #1 result. I guess there are worse things.

So I am still here, waiting, hoping that things will all go back to normal. I think in the end this will be a good thing. It's just going to take some time...

In the meantime, here are some social media links:

I hope your school year is off to a great start!
