Learning Curve

I’m afraid my blog/journal, whatever you call it, is never consistently about a topic similar to the previous one(s).  Sometimes it might be, but not usually.  I am all over the map in this place.  I write whatever is foremost in my gray-matter at the current time.

For the past several days I’ve been immersed in all-things-WordPress.  I feel like my brain cells are deteriorating and even dying off lately… constantly forgetting words that I know I knew before but just cannot remember them when I want them.

After learning that my old blog-host site, JournalScape, was closing up shop on November 1st of this year, I quickly jumped into action and got all the necessary information I would need to move my 7 years of blog over to a new home – here at WordPress.

I already had a blog going here at WordPress, called Crow Cottage, Actually.  But for some reason, I found it difficult to use and I can’t really remember why.  Kenny W., the JournalScape guru, told us that WordPress was his recommendation but that we could move our files anywhere we wanted.  Since I had used WP already, I came over here and opened up a new site called “Thoughts From Crow Cottage,” the same as at JournalScape.  And here I am.  Tweaking the live-long days!

There are so many options to choose from, once I choose something and save/update it, and when I want to go back there, I’ve totally forgotten how to get to that page.  There are too many options!

So now that I’ve got it to a reasonably nice appearance and readability, I’m going to go backwards and read up on how to use WordPress (there is a link to that effect over in my “Blogroll” in the right-hand column.)  I should have read this to start with, but figured I’d go it alone.  I don’t know if I’ll find the answers to my questions… heck, I can’t even remember the questions I had!  You see?  Getting old is not for the weak of spirit!

    I think you’ve done a grand job, and so quickly!


  2. I think you have done a fine job! Moving is always a time of chaos, even virtual moves, goes with the territory. Belle seems to be getting through it with flying colours!
