Blogging from the Bush Pt 2

In a recent article, I wrote to all those who follow this blog, to let you all know that my hours had been cut at work and due to my hours being cut, I had to go down on my data plan. Because I live in a rural area, of the southern part of the United States, I have to pay for data plans and as most of you know, this means that I am limited in how much data I have every month or as you prefer, I have a data cap on my plan. Therefore, going down on my data plan limits me even that much more, on my internet use. I asked everyone to pray that God allow me to either: get my hours back, to be able to somehow get my data back, and to follow God’s will in whether or not I should be blogging.

I want to thank everyone who remembered me in their prayers as God has most certainly answered them above and beyond anything I could have hoped or asked for.

Towards the end of summer, my wife bought me a new HP Laptop computer. I have used the same laptop, to blog and keep current my website, since 2009. However, about the time I had it ready to use, my data plan had already been cut. So I decided to use my new laptop, the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday), in order to do some blogging. If any of my readers are familiar with Windows 10, then they will know that Windows 10 is a data hungry system. I did not know this at the time. I turned my laptop on and connected to my wifi feeling confident that I could do plenty on my blog because I only had one week left on my data plan and had not even used half of my allotted amount. After posting some quotes to my blog and reading a couple of emails, I checked to see how much data I had used and discovered that my new laptop had consumed over 5 gigs. This put me near my data limit and caused me to panic.

When my data carrier opened, I called them and explained what happened. All I wanted to do was go up 2 more gigs on my plan. I figured I could scrape together ten dollars extra every month and I also wanted to make sure I did not exceed November’s limit on my plan. To my surprise my carrier proclaimed that all the plans had changed and that now I could get double the data of my current plan, for only $4.76 more a month. This would give me more data than I had before my hours got cut. The customer service representative surprised me one more time by telling me that now all unused data rolls over. This company has never offered roll over data in its entire history. So when I went into December I had November’s unused data and December’s data. So I am now ready to get back to posting some great articles and keeping everyone informed on upcoming conferences.

I praise God for this and want to thank everyone of you again for praying for my blog and my data plan. God has been so gracious to me in this matter. I wanted to keep my blog going for God’s glory.

Soli deo Gloria

    God is good. Is there also a local library somewhat reasonable from your area? Sometimes they have internet access?

      Good is good! Amen! Yes, there are three libraries seeing that I live between 3 small towns. But every other weekend I have my 7 month old granddaughter and so I would rather be at home blogging on that weekend. I always get up at 2:00-3:00 AM on weekends so I can have privacy and of course, enjoy that grand-baby when she wakes up. Thanks for reading brother.

        Wow 2 AM! That’s when I go to sleep!

        Yes, 2:00 AM. Before my hours were cut I was getting up at 12:20 AM every morning. But on weekends I would generally sleep in till 2:00 AM. lol

        Yes, I was thinking that you went to bed around that time. You are on the west coast, right? Back when I would get up at 12:20 AM and would respond to your comments, you sometimes responded right back and so I knew that you probably were up late.

        Yes, I’m on the West Coast.
