Today started out like any other Monday.
No wait. Today is Tuesday.
It sure felt like a Monday!
Anyway, She Owns It was down.
I’m talking “Forbidden 403” – serious stuff.
My heart sank.
What makes this whole conundrum EVEN WORSE is the fact that I knew my site was in need of an upgrade!
I’ve been putting it off.
Yup, I’m a Procrastinator (with a capital P) stuck in analysis paralysis.
My awesome Twitter friend Matt Craine has pulled me out of the lightning sand more than once (it’s a Princess Bride reference, look it up).
He’s been sending me tweets: “call me” – he was trying to be proactive…
And then today happened.
And there I sat. Error 403. Help!
- Matt answered my tweet for help.
- Fixed the problem.
- Site is back.
- The END.
Not so fast Buttercup!
Matt Craine saved the day. Again.
I expected “I told you so.”
He’s helped me before and asked for nothing in return.
But, no. He just acted.
I put out an SOS and amazing people like Matt show up.
I’ve never met Matt IRL(in real life), but I consider him an IRL friend.
People like Matt put the “social” in social media.
I LOVE the community I’ve found online. The everyday heroes who are there to answer questions, make me smile, and lend a helping hand “just because” – expecting nothing in return.
Matt is not a sponsor but he has helped me out several times and I HIGHLY recommend his services.
Curious about Matt?
He tweets: @MattCraine
He a Creative Strategist and Co-Founder at Becoming 3D.
Owner and CEO at Craine Consulting.
Have you had a similar experience?
Who stepped up and “rescued you” online?
Who made you smile when you were feeling down?
